Writer Steve Orlando has announced a new creator-owned superhero title coming in Fall of this year. Though details including the series title are still sparse, the story focuses on a superhero team called Crisis Command.

"The biggest wildest superheroes you’ve ever seen from me!", Orlando said in his tweet announcing Crisis Command. "An idea a minute, and it’s just the beginning!"

"And this is an original, folks," he said in a follow up. "The gloves, and the rules, are no more..."

Orlando promised a full series announcement including a color version of the character concept art by Davide Tinto, seen above, to come later. No stranger to superheroes, Orlando was, until recently, a DC exclusive writer, having worked on titles such as Midnighter, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, and Justice League of America.

Alongside The Crisis Command, Orlando announced another creator-owned series, planned for a 2021 release. Orlando describes the unnamed series, created alongside co-writer Steve Foxe, as "Big, raw, queer horror."

Orlando didn't announce the series title or further premise, but did include four character designs, seen here.
