A former Robin and Batgirl, the character hasn’t been seen since the publisher relaunched its entire superhero line in the fall of 2011 with “The New 52” campaign. Aspen Comics is debuting two female-centric series for 2014. Lola follows a girl searching for her parents in a post-apocalyptic landscape, and Damsels in Excess centers around a princess who’s targeted by her peers in four nearby kingdoms. Valiant Comics pays homage to its 1990s incarnation in two ways: It will bring back the original “world’s worst superteam” with Q2: The Return of Quantum and Woody with original creators Christopher Priest and M.D. Bright plus its Eternal Warriorseries will have a “4001 A.D.” timeline that combines futuristic times with lots of action. “The Six Million Dollar Man” never received a sixth season on TV in the 1970s, but it gets one in comics next year.

Bionic astronaut Steve Austin and his handler Oscar Goldman are forced to deal with government traitors as well as the return of the villainous android Maskatron. Dynamite has also paired Gold Key comics and A-list writers for four new series: Greg Pak’s Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, Frank Barbiere’s Solar: Man of the Atom, Fred Van Lente’s Magnus: Robot Fighter and Mark Waid’s Doctor Spektor. Comics publishers Dynamite and Dark Horse Comics have a pair of crossovers in the works. The fantasy protagonists of Dark Horse’s Conan and Dynamite’s Red Sonja join up to do battle, sword-and-sorcery style, in an as-yet-unnamed title. And in The Shadow vs. Grendel, writer/artist Matt Wagner brings the popular throwback pulp hero into conflict with the masked assassin. Joss Whedon’s “Whedonverse” gets a spotlight both in a new Dark Horse Serenity series by Zack Whedon picking up where the movie follow-up to the TV series Firefly left off and 30-issue “seasons” each for Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel & Faith. Next year, the company is also rolling out Greg Rucka’s Veil, about an amnesiac woman with strange powers; Jonathan Maberry’s horror series Bad Blood, with a guy whose blood is deadly for vampires; and two new books from David Lapham, the all-ages, bug-squashing adventure Juice Squeezers and the Western sci-fi Kid McAlister.
