Oscar-Winning Writer John Ridley To Pen Miniseries Re-Examining DC Comics History

Ridley is now teaming with DC Comics for a new literary miniseries, The Other History of the DC Universe.

John Ridley, the Oscar Award-winning screenwriter of 12 Years a Slave, will pen the hidden, personal stories of the DC Universe's superheroes who aren't white, male or straight, DC Comics announced today.

Characters who will be focused on include Green Lantern John Stewart, Renee Montoya aka The Question, Katana from the Suicide Squad, Supergirl, and so much more.

Kane Breaks Sheringham's Spurs Scoring Record
New Everton signing Cenk Tosun has promised fans that he will give his all in order to score goals for his new club. On the other hand, Sam Allardyce took the responsibility of Everton's shocking performance at Wembley.

The comic book miniseries, titled The Other History of the DC Universe, will focus on "the lives of those behind the costumes, and their endeavors to overcome real-world issues". The Other History of the DC Universe will also analyze iconic DC moments and chart sociopolitical gains. The series is scheduled to debut in winter 2018.

"I could not be more excited by the opportunity to excavate the canon of the DC Universe through a vast array of characters who've earned their seat at the table", said Ridley.

The oddest inclusion is probably Gregorio De La Vega, aka Extraño, DC Comics' first - and very embarrassingly handled - implied-to-be-gay superhero, who has only just reached the point of being revamped into something that isn't an offensive caricature.

Overcoming a 20-0 run is rarely a recipe for success, but the Indiana Pacers had the right chefs in the kitchen on Friday night. IN ranks 13th in points in the paint per game (44.8) while Cleveland ranks 23rd in points allowed in the paint per game (46.4).

Ridley's The American Way: Those Above and Those Below will come to a close in the next few months, with The Other History of the DC Universe premiering sometime later this year. Ridley served as showrunner of the ABC series American Crime, which lasted for three seasons. His most notable comic book work was The American Way, originally released in 2006 as part of the WildStorm imprint and illustrated by Georges Jeanty.

A now publishing sequel, The American Way: Those Above and Those Below, picks up the story a decade later, with all the political tension of the '70s put through the same lens.
