Gerard Way's Young Animal imprint was started over a year ago, but the characters from the books are about to meet other DC Universe legends for the first time in a crossover event that Gerard Way has titled Milk Wars. Obviously.
For Milk Wars, characters from each of the Young Animal books, Doom Patrol, Shade the Changing Girl, Mother Panic, and Cave Carson Has a Cybernetic Eye will be paired up with DCU characters like Batman, Wonder Woman and Swamp Thing. The story centers around a new character, Milkman Man.
The first chapter of Milk Wars will be the Justice League/Doom Patrol special coming in January with cover art by Frank Quietly, interior art by ACO, written by Steve Orlando and Gerard Way. The other pairings will be Mother Panic and Batman, Shade The Changing Girl and Wonder Woman, and Cave Carson and Swamp Thing, before returning in the last chapter to JLA and Doom Patrol.
