The CW’s latest DC TV series Naomi premieres Tuesday, January 11, and to mark the occasion DC will launch a second six-issue limited series – what it’s calling a “second season” – featuring the original creative team of Brian Michael Bendis, David F. Walker, and Jamal Campbell.

On sale March 8, Naomi Season Two #1 begins the character’s quest to “uncover the truth behind the new mysteries around herself and her powers,” and define her place in the DC Universe.
“I am so excited that the entire original creative team was able to return to put together this very important chapter in Naomi McDuffie’s life and legacy,” says Bendis in the new series announcement.
“Naomi has been thrown into the deep end of life and the series is about that. What Naomi is going through in the superhero universe is what a lot of people go through in the real world. All the sudden you’re in over your head and things are expected of you and there are still so many questions and mysteries about her parents, birth world, powers. and the world she grew up in. You’re in for lots of surprises!”
Launching straight from Season One and her roles in Young Justice and Justice League, Naomi tries to balance life working among superheroes like Batman and Superman with her small-town life and relationships with her parents and friends.
The series will guest star Black Adam, Superman, and the Justice League, and feature the return of Zumbado!
“It feels really good to be working with Jamal and Brian again,” adds writer David F. Walker. “All three of us are in very different places professionally and personally in our lives, and that brings an invigorating energy to the creative process as we chronicle this next chapter in Naomi’s adventures. The first story we wrote was about Naomi learning who she really is, and now this story is all about unpacking the realities of what it means to be a Super Hero.”

Naomi is now a member of the Justice League, so maybe one day she’ll appear on Newsarama’s list of the best Justice League stories of all time.
I’m not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I’m also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I’ve been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it’s crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
