DC Festival of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration

 DC has a new book out this week (May 11, 2021), "DC Festival of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration" #1 (with 3 covers, one each by Jim Lee, Stanley "Artgerm" Chau, and Bernard Chang, though none of them have Legionnaires). No Legion story, but three Legionnaires are featured in the pinup & bio section. The book is 100 pages for $9.99.

From Philip Tan with Sebastian Cheng, here's a pinup of Dragonmage and Karate Kid. Interesting to note that the SW6 Legionnaires are behind Dragonmage while the v3-era Legionnaires are behind Karate Kid.

And then using previously published art by Ryan Sook, here's Gold Lantern from the bio section, with a name and heritage that had been previously unrevealed:

And curiously, this cosplayer appears a story written by Amy Chu and drawn by Marcio Takara:

Not included: 

  • Threeboot (v5) Karate Kid
  • Retroboot (v6) Harmonia Li and Dragonwing
  • Rebirth (v8) Cosmic Boy and Karate Kid
Here's a good Newsarama interview on the book itself.
