On poursuit aujourd’hui l’exploration des sollicitations de DC Comics avec cette seconde partie du DC Universe qui se consacre aux titres du nouvel imprint Wildstorm (qui reste encore tout seul), de chez DC’s Young Animal (avec Doom Patrol qui s’offre une petite pause ce mois-ci), mais également des sorties Hanna-Barbera (avec leurs Annuals crossover) ainsi que les autres titres de DC Comics qui ne sont pas sous l’égide de Rebirth.
A ce niveau, on remarquera premièrement qu’Earth 2 : Society s’offre un numéro supplémentaire, par rapport à sa fin annoncée le mois dernier. De l’autre, un grand nombre de mini-séries verront leur dernier numéro publié (Midnighter & Apollo, Death of Hawkman, Vigilante : Southland, He-Man/Thundercats) et il faudra donc s’attendre à voir de nouveaux titres annoncés dans les prochaines semaines ! Je vous laisse découvrir l’ensemble des sollicitations ci-dessous, et prenez bien garde aux éventuels spoilers !
