In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Dog Days of Summer #1, we’re taking a look at three additional tales from the issue. First, Wonder Woman’s friend, Ferdinand, faces an existential barbecue crisis in “Barbecue Season.” G. Willow Wilson and artist Stjepan Sejic are the creative team for that story. Then, Mariko Tamaki and artist Cian Tormey put the spotlight on Beast Boy in “All Beasts Bright and Beautiful.” Kenny Porter and artist Paul Fry take on Dex-Starr in the final story, “Tourist Season.”
