Haddock, Rooster Teeth’s head of animation said, "All of us at Rooster Teeth Animation are incredibly honored that the tales we’ve been pouring our hearts into have found their comics home at DC. With these comic books, we’re looking forward to spending more time with the characters we love, taking deeper looks into their worlds, and going on more journeys. DC is a leader in the industry and the caretaker of an amazing pantheon, and working with them we know there are incredible adventures on the horizon. We’re going to have some fun."
