Writer Jeff Lemire took to Twitter today to announce that he will be co-writing a new Inferior Five series with Keith Giffen who will also be providing the art. He also indicated that he'll be doing (writing and art) back up stories in each issue. The accompanying image posted indicated the backup will feature Peacemaker and be five pages per issue.




Lemire also tweeted that the series will be in-continuity with the DC Universe but take place in the late 1980s, using characters from that time period.


At New York Comic Con (NYCC)'s Conversation with Dan Didio panel, Giffen mentioned that the series would run for 12 issues starting June 2018, that:

"reimagines the team of Silver Age misfit teenage heroes"


The panel also showed off preview pages of what appears to be the Peacemaker backup story:











The Inferior Five first appeared in 1966's Showcase #62. Described as "the greatest group of rejects in comics history", the team consisted of the legacy from the The Freedom Brigade: Awkward Man, Blimp, Dumb Bunny, Merry Man, and White Feather.



Lemire posted a couple of color pages from his backup feature:
