It seems like 2018 is shaping up to be the year of Plastic Man. First The Terrifics and now the legendary Gail Simone is heading a new mini-series. I'll quote defer directly to D.C.'s website below.
The Stretchable Superhero Goes Solo in Six-Issue Miniseries
"On June 13, celebrated writer Gail Simone debuts a new monthly six-issue miniseries for PLASTIC MAN. After making her DC debut with BIRDS OF PREY, Simone has written fan-favorite hits such as SECRET SIX and BATGIRL, as well as CLEAN ROOM for Vertigo, which earned her an Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series. “This has been a wild year for me, creatively,” continues Simone. “I’ve gotten to write so many of my bucket list characters, and here’s a character who could actually BE both the list AND the bucket. It’s sexy and stretchy and I’m seriously hoping it offends ALL the best people!”
“He’s the jester, the joke, the stretchy weirdo. He’s not credible. He’s not reliable. He’s…well, he’s Plastic Man,” says Gail Simone on her new assignment: writing the famous Golden Age hero. “He’s like a stretchy Swamp Thing or the bouncy Batman; writing him is a goofy, snarky honor and I'm thrilled to be part of his rubber ribaldry.”"
So what do you think, are you excited for Gail Simone and Adriana Melo's new Plastic Man Mini-series? I'd love to know your thoughts in the comments below.
