More Crazy Cross-Ups This Fall, Plus a Four-Part Backup Story Featuring Secret Squirrel

This October, the mash-ups get weirder and wilder when DC unleashes more crazy combinations of the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes with some of Hanna-Barbera’s best-known classic cartoon characters.  Each book goes on sale Wednesday, October 31 (with both a standard and variant cover), is rated T (for Teen) and carries a retail price of $4.99. These 48-page one-shots will also feature an installment of a spotlight tale featuring Hanna-Barbera’s leading super spy, Secret Squirrel, written by J.M. DeMatteis with art by Tom Mandrake.

The title lineup includes:

In Yellowstone Park, legends speak of a spirit bear referred to as “the Yogi,” which few if any have actually encountered. Real or not, when a bear seems to have graduated from stealing picnic baskets to kidnapping actual campers, Ranger Smith decides it’s time to stop this menace—so he calls on the services of Slade Wilson—a.k.a. Deathstroke—to get the job done.

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the early 1970s, Green Lantern and Huckleberry Hound join forces to take a stand on the issues of that era. Returning from recent duty in Vietnam, veteran Marine John Stewart—now a member of the Green Lantern Corps—contemplates what, if anything, he should do about the issues tearing his country apart. Meanwhile, Huckleberry’s comments against the Vietnam war have left him a celebrity outcast, and a visit back home to Mississippi puts him face to face with the Civil Rights Movement. What can one man—and one hound—do?
