Unstoppable Doom Patrol from Dennis Culver and Chris Burnham was up next, with the reveal of the character design for Beast Girl, an all new character in the vein of original Doom Patrol member Beast Boy. Along with this, Culver was able to announce that, by fan demand, the series has been extended from six to seven issues, with an extra bonus issue drawn by David Lafuente slotted in as Unstoppable Doom Patrol #4. The first issue of the series is out this Tuesday, March 28th.

The Dawn of DC also appears in next week’s Harley Quinn #28, featuring Howard and series artist Sweeney Boo. The series will follow Harley as she completes community service… by teaching at a local community college. Howard also tempted fans with a look at the future of her Catwoman run, which will soon share some tantalizing connections to Chip Zdarsky‘s current Batman epic.

Jeremy Adams of The Flash fame was able to speak a bit on his new Green Lantern run, where he’ll be reuniting with Flashpoint Beyond collaborator Xermánico to bring Hal Jordan back to Earth, after the whole planet has been quarantined by the work of the Guardians of Oa, and face-to-face with his longtime foe, Sinestro.

The panel wrapped up with a look at Morgan Hampton’s new Cyborg series, where he’ll be working with Tom Raney to redefine the world of the classic Titan. Hampton was also able to share that he’s being mentored by Cyborg co-creator Marv Wolfman as he continues to work on this series (although Wolfman is not contributing to this mini).
