DC and Vertigo Comic Book Releases For June 2015 [Solicitations]

June Comic Book Releases
DC Comics

Courtesy of DC Comics, ComicsAlliance brings you an advance look at new periodical comic books, collected editions, and graphic novels going on sale in June 2015 (and in some cases beyond) from the publisher’s superhero line and the mature readers Vertigo imprint.

June is DC's 'Divergence' month, featuring a whole slate of new launches by new creative teams that we're very excited about, including Brenden Fletcher and Annie Wu's Black Canary, Stever Orlando and ACO's Midnighter, and Ming Doyle, James Tynion IV and Riley Rossmo's Constantine. Also keep an eye out for the new Batman Beyond, in which the Batman of the future no longer has old man Bruce to guide him, and the new We Are Robins series, featuring the teenagers of Gotham uniting under the banner of the Boy Wonder to fight crime. Plus, Max Rockatansky's journeys beyond the Thunderdome will be told in a new prequel series to the upcoming summer blockbuster, Mad Max: Fury Road.

There are plenty of excellent comics on the way this June to get you hyped up for the summer. All of the following books can be purchased at finer comic book shops, where you can also pre-order your selections to ensure you’ll get a copy before they sell out.

Costume design is one of the great strengths of the superhero genre, a way to establish distinctive visual shorthand for a character and reveal key details about concept, purpose, and personality. But which is the best superhero costume of all time? This month, we're asking you to decide, by voting up your favorites and voting down the rest. When we have your votes, we'll compile a list of the greatest super-costumes of all time.

This week we're looking at some quintessential costume designs decade-by-decade. Today it's five costumes from the 1970s.

DC unveiled new costumes for Superman and Wonder Woman only yesterday, but we're not going to ask you to vote on those before you've had a chance to adjust, so instead we're looking at these heroes' best known costumes --- and a few of their other notable wardrobe changes.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: S.E.X.

Today's poll is all about sex. Some superheroes are known for their provocatively sexy costumes, and because sex in superhero costumes isn't always terribly sophisticated, that often just means costumes that are revealing and/or skintight. But just because a costume is sexy doesn't mean it can't also be stylish. Here are five costumes and characters known for their eye-candy appeal.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: Batsuits

supercostume8

For today's polls, we're looking at a man whose costumes have tended to follow quite similar patterns, but with some notable changes in detail. Batman's costume has had a limited range of colors, a consistent silhouette (allowing for longer and shorter ears), and one perennial question; oval or no oval? Whichever Batman costume gets the highest approval rating in these polls will be deemed the great Batman costume --- and all the others will be dropped down the deepest Batcave chasm.

For our seventh day of polls, we're looking at the designs of some of the most celebrated pulp heroes ever to grace the comics page. They don't have to have originated in comics, or to have originated in the pulp era, and they don't have to wear a domino mask or a red scarf or a gun belt. But it does look pretty cool when they do. Or does it?

supercostumes6

To kick off our second week of polls, we're looking at a character who has a rather unique costume history. The X-Man Storm has had several different looks over the years, and though they've often had unifying elements, they've also embraced very different styles. But does Storm have one iconic look that dominates all the others? And has she ever actually looked bad? We've picked out five of her famous looks for you to vote on.

The Great Super-Costume Poll: Mss. Marvel

supercostume5

For day five, we decided to embrace one of our reader's suggestions. It's been said that this site loves Kamala Khan, and it's true, we do love Kamala Khan! What's not to love? So today we're asking you to rate the costumes of the various Mss Marvel --- not just Kamala, but Carol, Carol again, and poor, forgotten Sharon --- plus DC's own "Ms." Marvel, the hero better known as Mary.
