DC Comics is getting weird with these mash-ups. How weird? Deathstroke and Yogi Bear weird. Just look at that cover!  This October DC is releasing four 48-page one-shot specials featuring more DC/Hanna-Barbera mash-up stories.

Available with both a standard and variant cover, each book will focus on a different pairing of DC superheroes and Hanna-Barbera Saturday morning cartoon characters. A four-part backup story featuring Secret Squirrel written by J.M. DeMatteis with art by Tom Mandrake will span the four one-shots, as well. All four specials will drop on October 31st. Probably not the Halloween specials you were expecting, huh?

In Yellowstone Park, legends speak of a spirit bear referred to as “the Yogi,” which few if any have actually encountered.

Deathstroke—to get the job done.

Set against the turbulent backdrop of the early 1970s, Green Lantern and Huckleberry Hound join forces to take a stand on the issues of that era. Returning from recent duty in Vietnam, veteran Marine John Stewart—now a member of the Green Lantern Corps—contemplates what, if anything, he should do about the issues tearing his country apart. Meanwhile, Huckleberry’s comments against the Vietnam war have left him a celebrity outcast, and a visit back home to Mississippi puts him face to face with the Civil Rights Movement. What can one man—and one hound—do?
