May 18 will see the launch of "Future Quest" by Jeff Parker and Evan "Doc" Shaner, the series that DC describes as taking "teenage adventurer Jonny Quest and the classic Hanna-Barbera action heroes into a whole new dimension." Two of the four variants have been revealed, including a Jonny Quest cover by Steve Rude and Bill Sienkiewicz's take on the Space Ghost crew. The standard cover comes from series artist Shaner.
