Hanna-Barbera Beyond

The Hanna-Barbera stable of cartoon characters features some of the most iconic ever created: The Scooby-Doo gang and the Flintstone family, most famously, but also Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, and everyone’s favorite caveman superhero, the Mighty Mightor. Now, a load of the company’s intellectual property are getting new stories in the pages of DC Comics for a slate of comic series called Hanna-Barbera Beyond (at least for purposes of the press release).

The first wave (of hopefully many) Hanna-Barbera Beyond comics consists of Scooby Apocalypse, about Mystery Inc. in an “apocalyptic near-future badland”; Future Quest, about Jonny Quest; Wacky Raceland, a Mad Max inflected take on Wacky Races; and a reboot of The Flintstones.

If you don’t believe me, you can take a look at the Hanna-Barbera Beyond press release right here. And the comics themselves are set to hit shelves this May.
