    Misfit: Princess of Gemworld- Rather than do yet another Amethyst reboot, this book would showcase Charlie's days as a princess of the Ruby house up until the day her family was murdered and she was sent to Earth. Dark high-fantasy and Song of Ice and Fire esque political intrigue, all from the perspective of a bubbly teenage girl.

    Earth Angel- A new solo for Linda Danvers. Follows Linda struggling to balance her responsibilities as a single mother to Ariella as well as her duties as an Earth-born angel.

    Empress: A solo book for Anita, co-starring Slobo. Would be able to focus on both Anita's magical abilities as well as get the New Gods involved thanks to her having a piece of the anti-life equation inside her.

    My Donna Troy idea is a bit like a Narnia book, then a prolapsed Narnia book. It ends as a Sailor Moon serial with a new status quo for the handoff.

    Well I like this too.

    Fantasy is a broad term.
    Is Moore's Swamp Thing fantasy? Or is that strictly horror?

    If Gotham By Midnight could be labeled (urban) fantasy and Gotham Academy (YA) fantasy. Those are two of my favorite fantasy books by DC in the last few years.

    Adventure Comics- A team book that focuses on the cast of the Aquaman family; Aquaman, Mera, Tempest, Aqualad, Tula and Dolphin. This would mainly take place throughout the seven seas and would deal with the magic side of Aquaman's world. Make it very adventure like where they discover new places, magic and creatures. Would also reintroduce Arion, Poseidon and Neptune.

    Bloodwynd- Solo title for the character, Bloodwynd. Re-establish for the Rebirth universe, making him his own character. Background would still be the same but since this character has a lot of unknown history I would go into detail on who he is and his decendants.

    Is that your idea for a DC fantasy book?

    Sometimes people just like to talk about ideas they're interested in, or things they would personally enjoy seeing, without diving into how likely it is to "succeed" - which really can't be perfectly predicted in advance anyway.

    Like many others here, I would like to see a Gemworld series - one where the world-building is a little more thoroughly thought-out, which covers more of the world than just Amethyst and her concerns, and which sets it up as an ongoing site of interest in the DCU, like Themyscira and Atlantis are at their best (as opposed to being aimed at a Gemworld-wide semi-cosmic conflict that destroys their whole civilization or Gemworld itself).

    A Doctor Fate series could be good.

    I prefer Blue Beetle as mystical rather than interstellar.

    I think the Gaiman curated Sandman line is a good start for DC fantasy books, but there are lots of other possibilities.

    I'd love to see something done with Starfire I...



    featuring a strong female lead who is a warrior woman leading a rebellion against some kind of oppressor in a swords and science setting, maybe adding elements of planetary romance-a earth women cast into a strange world where she discovers all she is capable of.

    Maybe do something with Arion (perhaps a new take on the Atlantis Chronicles) and/or Skartaris (though Warlord has never felt right without Mike Grell being on board in some fashion or other).

    I'm not sure if DC retains the rights to Arak or whether Roy Thomas kept them when the series was done at DC, but a new take on the shamanic native American warrior exploring the dark age setting of Europe has a lot of strong storytelling possibilities.

    A new Madame Xanadu series, more in line with the sensibilities of the Matt Wagner series from Vertigo than what they did with her in JL Dark.

    Ideally, I'd like to see them do something along the lines of Ink and Zoom, OGN by some established fantasy writers using DC properties, with 2 lines, a young adult fantasy line and more adult fantasy line (a la Gaiman's curated line but not Sandman specific). Fantasy is probably a bigger seller in the YA market and in the broader book market (where Potter books and that ilk dominate the YA market and stuff like A Song of Fire and Ice, the Dresden Files, etc. draw in older readers) than in the direct market and it would be a chance to get new eyes of readers who may not specifically be comics readers on stuff in comic format that can create new customers and grow the overall market. There's a lot of untapped potential there.
