What You Might Have Missed In DC’s June 2017 Solicitations

Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.

This month in DC's June solicitations, DC Rebirth brings back some more old favorites in a more traditional setting, some New 52 standout stars get a chance to return, some Golden Age heroes appear in the least likely place, and Aquaman gets hot!

Young Animal Takes On The Fourth World For The Allred Family’s ‘Bug: The Adventures Of Forager’

Bug: The Adventures of Forager, Young Animal

Since its debut last year with some of the most compelling titles on the stands, it's safe to say that the Young Animal line has had some success digging into the more obscure characters from DC's catalog. We've even got a Cave Carson book that features Wild Dog, and it's one of the best things going.

With that in mind, it makes sense that the line's approach to Jack Kirby's Fourth World looks beyond the usual characters, like Orion and Mister Miracle, and puts the spotlight on someone else. Hence Bug: The Adventures of Forager.

ICYMI: ‘Batman ’66’ Just Ended By Telling The Origin Of The TV Show’s Opening Credits

Batman '66 Chapter 73

Batman '66 was too good for this fallen world.

With this week's digital-first issue, the series has finally come to an end after 73 chapters, and in that time, it's been an incredible tribute to the classic TV series that's also involved some incredible innovation, introducing new, '60s style takes on villains that never made it to the show, and operating on a scale that a TV show could never quite match. At its heart, though, the main appeal of the series was the way that it incorporated the signature styles of the show, which is why it's so great that it ended the way it did. In case you missed it, the final issue of Batman '66 is an origin story for the show's opening credits.

Bad News: Fraction Leaves ‘FF’ and ‘Fantastic Four'; Good News: Karl Kesel Returns To ‘Fantastic Four’



"It sucks for me, too" is all Matt Fraction had to say about the news that he's prematurely concluding his well regarded work on Marvel's Fantastic Four and FF titles, as revealed in the publisher's solicitations for November (which will be published later today but were sent to the comics press early yesterday). The demands of Fraction's work on Inhumanity and Inhumans are such that "something had to give," according to editor Tom Brevoort. The news is a serious bummer.

Replacing Fraction on FF will be writer Lee Allred, who according to solicits will co-write with his brother, series artist Michael Allred. That FF will remain indelibly Allred is good news, as is the fact that Fantastic Four will welcome back cartoonist Karl Kesel, whose contributions to Mark Waid and Mike Wieringo's work on the title circa 2002-2005 helped make it a classic run. Kesel will collaborate with ongoing artist Mark Bagley.
