New Weekly Series Debuts  Everywhere Digital Comics Are Sold


BURBANK, Calif. (Mar. 28, 2019) —  In the newest installment of the critically acclaimed DC SUPER HERO GIRLS comics series, the teenage superheroes face their smartest competition yet—the Metropolis High Science Fair!

Set in the same universe as the new DC Super Hero Girls animated series created by Lauren Faust that airs Sundays on Cartoon Network, DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: WEIRD SCIENCE is an original story that follows Zatanna and the rest of the teen superheroes as they tap into their inner scientists for the upcoming school competition.


In WEIRD SCIENCE, all the DC Super Hero Girls are excited to compete in Metropolis High’s science fair—everyone except Zee Zatara, a.k.a. Zatanna. Magic is Zee’s life, and science seems so dull in comparison. When she tries to help her friends with their projects, things keep going wrong. Is her magic causing the science to go haywire? Who will be named the ultimate “science” hero?


Penned by fan-favorite writer Amanda Deibert, the 14-chapter series features a cast of rotating artists including Yancey Labat, Agnes Garbowska, and Erich Owen, among others. The digital series will debut new chapters every week, and the first chapter is available now everywhere digital comics are sold.


Metropolis High has a special guest judge for this year’s science fair! The DC Super Hero Girls are excited to compete, except for Zatanna. Can she give up magic long enough to make her science project a winner?

About DC Super Hero Girls
DC Super Hero Girls inspires girls to embrace their unique abilities and harness the power of teamwork and diversity to discover their true potential.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
