Have you ever wanted to know the history of Arm-Fall Off Boy, or wondered why the first Red Tornado was a geriatric lady with a pan on her head? James Gunn has unveiled a brand new book about the weirdest heroes across the DC Multiverse!

It’s no secret that James Gunn is a fan of the wacky and weird corners of comic books, with The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker pulling obscure DC Comics characters, from Bloodsport to Weasel. Fans will finally get a peek into the mind of the co-chair of DC Studios with an upcoming book entitled Strange and Unsung All-Stars of The DC Multiverse, which chronicles the forgotten and outlandish characters fans love:

Strange and Unsung All-Stars of The DC Multiverse, written by Stephanie Williams with a foreward by James Gunn, seems to be written in the vein of Jon Morris’ League of Regrettable Superheroes series, though with a heavier focus on DC Comics. With the Creature Commandos on the front of the page, it’s likely this book may give fans hints to what characters may appear in the future of the DC Universe, so it may be wise to pre-order it today!

Get Ready For A Weird War!

Creature Commandos is an upcoming animated series set to debut in 2024 for James Gunn and Peter Safran’s brand-new DC Universe. The show is set to feature the return of Sean Gunn’s Weasel from The Suicide Squad as Amanda Waller seeks to build a militia of monsters and outcasts. All 7 episodes for the show’s first season were written by Gunn.

Joining Sean Gunn’s Weasel in Creature Commandos is Frank Grillo as Rick Flagg Sr., the father of Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flagg, as well as Maria Bakalova as Princess Ilana Rostovic, Indira Varma as The Bride, Zoe Chao as Nina Mazursky, Alan Tudyk as Dr. Phosphorus, and David Harbour as Eric Frankenstein.
