Continuons de regarder le tour des sollicitations de DC Comics avec cette partie consacrée aux mini-séries et titres en dehors de la gamme Rebirth, des titres Digital First, et également les imprints Hanna-Barbera, DC’s Young Animal et… Wildstorm, qui fera donc son retour ce mois-ci avec le premier numéro du titre principal écrit par Warren Ellis !
Dans le reste des faits intéressants, on peut noter une incursion de l’artiste Shawn Crystal sur Mother Panic – un excellent choix alors qu’on ne l’avait plus revu depuis Arkham Manor – alors que les mini-séries Deadman et Raven se termineront. C’est la série Earth 2 : Society qui s’achèvera elle aussi, enfin, marquant définitivement la fin de l’ère DC You dont elle était la seule rescapée. Enfin, le magazine promotionnel Direct Currents s’annonce très mystérieux et promet notamment de teaser l’event estival de DC Comics. Il y a fort à parier qu’une annonce n’arrive à l’hiver prochain, on se tient sur le qui-vive d’ici là. Et je vous invite à regarder le reste des sollicitations ci-dessous !
