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 J…
An Epic Adventure Is Underway In 'Kamandi Challenge' #1
Kamandi, the last boy on Earth, is one of those Jack Kirby creations that DC has never known quite what to do with since Jack left him behind. So The Kamandi Challenge is taking the unique approach of letting different teams work on each issue, creating a patchwork story that takes Kamandi to every …
Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of: Tribute To Booster Gold
On this day in 1985, DC Comics introduced us to a new type of hero. A bold, new, narcissistic and self-aggrandizing type of hero, named Booster Gold. For over three decades, Booster Gold has gone from self-important a-hole to comic relief to the greatest hero you’ve never heard of, and one of…
Alone Against A Horde: 'Blue Beetle' #3 [Preview]
In Blue Beetle #3, by Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins, Jaime Reyes is one young man facing 150 alien bugs. Fortunately for him, he's a bit of an alien bug himself, thanks to his extraterrestrial Blue Beetle armor. But he's still outmanned, or "outbugged" as the cover puts it, and h…
DC Reveals New Details For 2017's 'Kamandi Challenge'
A while back DC announced plans to revive Jack Kirby's Kamandi: The Last Boy On Earth in January in a form that, to say the least, is a little unique. It's called The Kamandi Challenge, and the idea --- loosely inspired by 1985's DC Challenge and its game of storytelling hot potato --…

Q: Remember Hex, where Jonah Hex was DC's Mad Max, and where Batman lives in the Statue of Liberty? What are your thoughts on that? -- @jomomma75

A: Hex is legitimately one of the most interesting comics of all time, largely because it's one of the greatest examples of how weird comics ca…

Jaime Reyes And Ted Kord Return In 'Blue Beetle: Rebirth' #1
I think it's safe to say that Jaime Reyes had a pretty rough go of it in the New 52. Despite being in one of the launch titles of the new universe, Blue Beetle never seemed to click with readers or the viewers that knew him from Batman: The Brave and the Bold. That said, his predecessor, Ted Ko…
'Scooby Apocalypse' And The Balance Of Being Weird Enough
Here's something I want you to do right now: Take a moment and just try to imagine explaining this week's high-profile new releases to someone who was reading comics ten, maybe even five years ago. It would take hours, and by the time you'd dealt with all the incredulous reactions and…
