Announcing New DC Graphic Novel ‘Primer: Clashing Colors’

DC’s Middle Grade Super Hero, Primer, Returns in 2023!

Primer made a splash in her debut DC graphic novel, but does she have what it takes to be a Teen Titan?

Animation superstars Jennifer Muro and Thomas Krajewski, and artist Gretel Lusky, double down on their funny, action-packed Primer original graphic novel and reintroduce fans to a DC Super Hero with a colorful array of superpowers in the sequel graphic novel Primer: Clashing Colors, coming to bookstores everywhere on September 5, 2023!

Thirteen-year-old Ashley Rayburn is an upbeat girl, and in her highly anticipated second book Ashley must navigate the same challenges of popularity, parental expectations, and boring homework assignments that young readers are familiar with…all while testing the limitations of her powers!

In the second volume of DC’s middle grade Primer series, Ashley wants nothing more than to be taken seriously as a Super Hero—she can't help it that things don't always go as planned! And when the Teen Titans roll into town chasing after their infamous nemesis, Deathstroke, Ashley just knows this is her chance to prove that Primer has what it takes to join the team.

The only thing is, her parents still expect her to go to school and finish her homework—typical Dad and Yuka (umm…Mom) stuff! And best friend Luke keeps acting so weird every time her Titan dream gets brought up…but Ashley has it all figured out. If only they would just see that she can do this! Will Ashley learn what it means to be both a team player and a trustworthy friend...all while battling her newest foe?

DC's Primer: Clashing Colors will be available everywhere books are sold on September 5, 2023.
