    DC Bringing The Flintstones Back To Comics

    From Previews:

    “From the town of Bedrock, they’re a page right out of history…”

    Writer Mark Russell (Prez) and artist Steve Pugh will bring readers their version of Fred, Wilma, Barney, Betty, Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm in the debut issue of The Flintstones (MAY160282), on sale July 6.

    In this 40-page extra-sized premiere issue, fans will be introduced to the town of Bedrock, where Paleolithic humans dine on artisanal prepared mammoth after shopping at the Neandertall & Big Men’s Clothing stores, get the latest news via cave painting, and folks drive foot-powered cars.

    Join Fred and Barney as Mr. Slate sends them on a mission to show some Neanderthals a night on the town in hopes of luring them into this new system of “working for a living” – in his quarry, of course! Find out what happens to Fred and the gang when they finally get to learn how Bedrock’s “one percent” lives in this satirical take on life in the world’s first civilization this summer!

    Above is the debut cover to issue #1 by Steve Pugh and below are looks at the great variant covers by Ivan Reis (MAY160283), Walt Simonson (MAY160284), and Dustin Nguyen (MAY160285).

    Also I'm pretty sure I hate this before even really seeing it but whatever.

    This sounds about as much fun as Scooby Doo and the Fucking Apocalypse.

    Betty is still hotter than Wilma, but that may be the only thing they get right.

    I never liked the Hanna Barbara cartoons. Hated the Flinstones but ESPECIALLY hated Scooby Doo.

    Maybe I'm just getting old but I want my Flintstones to look like this.
