Basically the National Comics imprint is DC's new line, intended to explore "dormant" characters in the DCnU such as Kid Eternity, Madame X (presumably Xanadu) and Rose and Thorn.

"The first issue, written by Jeff Lemire with art by Cully Hamner will center around Eternity. This is the story of police coroner Christopher Freeman. After being given a second chance on life, he finds himself with the ability to resurrect the dead. Freeman uses his new ability to help those he resurrects to find their murderers and to gain closure, so they can continue to the other side."

This could be interesting. :) Plus the cover is neat.

Kid Eternity used to be Freddie Freeman's brother too.

He has the Freeman last name again.

Good to see Kid Eternity back in any form though, the off-panel Teen Titans fridging later rectified in Steph's Batgirl was HORRIBLE (in a scary way).

The sibling relationship beteen CMJr and KE was a retcon in the 1970's and 80's Adventure Comics, though an elegantly constructed and fun one. (One brother got powers because he didn't die when he should have, the other brother got powers because he DID die when he shouldn't)

I posted some stories (including that reveal) from that run many moons ago on s_d v1 but the change to the posting rules since then makes it damned tricky to edit them down to a third, and cutting down a Don Netwon drawn story always seems like a crime against art.
