Red Hood: Outlaws, Zatanna Set Premiere Dates for Webtoon’s New DC Series

WEBTOON and DC announce the premiere dates for their next two collaborations—Red Hood: Outlaws and Zatanna & The Ripper.

WEBTOON and DC just announced the premiere dates for their latest collaborations—Red Hood: Outlaws and Zatanna & The Ripper.

The two upcoming series are the latest titles to come out of the partnership between the two entertainment companies, which began in August 2021. Fans everywhere can read the new series exclusively on the WEBTOON platform, with Zatanna & The Ripper premiering first on July 11 and Red Hood: Outlaws launching on August 14. The release dates were announced at a panel at the Collision Conference in Toronto, which featured a discussion between WEBTOON’s head of content David Lee and DC’s editor-in-chief Marie Javins about the future of comics.

WEBTOON describes the story of Red Hood: Outlaws, written by Patrick R Young with art by Nico Bascuñán, as follows:

The Outlaws try to go legit—and fail spectacularly. The Justice League has issued a challenge to Red Hood, Artemis of Bana-Mighdall, and Bizarro, who have to try and replace their goody-two-shoe counterparts as the heroes the world neither deserves nor needs. In this original series, the Outlaws will battle some of DC’s biggest Super-Villains and Super Heroes—but their biggest battles are among themselves. Can this team last? And can they find their own identities separate from Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman?

The official synopsis for Zatanna & The Ripper, by writer Sarah Dealy and lead artist Syro, describes the magician’s latest adventure as follows:

Giovanni Zatara is one of the world’s most talented magicians. His daughter Zatanna, on the other hand, is among the world’s most powerful. On her 21st birthday, Zatanna witnesses a fight between her father and the sorceress Allura. Before Allura can get to his daughter, however, Giovanni blasts Zatanna far away-to London, England…in the 1800s. Zatanna tries to use her burgeoning magic to return home, but fails. What she can do, however, is pull things out of the future (and past). So her small, 19th century room is now filled with modern gadgets. It seems she’ll be stuck forever until an old friend finds her—John Constantine. Recognizing him from her past—or her future, he tells her he knows how to get her home. They’ll have to solve the Jack the Ripper murders. To make matters worse, Zatanna also quickly learns that she’s among the Ripper’s targets.

The two new DC adventures were originally announced last April. “The DC and WEBTOON partnership is an exciting opportunity to explore new genres and DC’s iconic superheroes and super-villains, telling new stories that both new and old fans can enjoy,” DC vice president of sales and marketing Nancy Spears said at the time.

Fans who want to catch up on the two comic companies’ previous collaborations, including Jasmine Walls and Manou Azumi’s Vixen: NYC, can do so through WEBTOON’s digital service. Readers can also catch up on the popular Eisner-nominated series Batman: Wayne Family Adventures, which features a more comedic take on the Dark Knight and the family of other heroes built up around him. The series was launched in 2021 as Webtoon and DC’s first-ever collaboration, and new chapters have continued to be published weekly.
