Well, this is a bit surprising. Typically Solicits for books do not come out until the third Monday of the month. However, it appears that DC Comics could not wait that long as they have released their covers and solicits for their July 2011 books on the second Monday of April. Unlike their June solicits, this time around for their July 2011 Solicits, DC has delivered plenty of cool covers for us fans to enjoy. They have especially cranked up their covers for the Flashpoint event and look to have announced a long awaited project from a legendary creative team. Hit the jump button to check out all of the best covers from DC Comics July 2011 Solicits.
BATMAN AND ROBIN #25 BY GUILLEM MARCH
The more I am hearing about Judd Winick's return to a Batman book with Batman and Robin, the more excited I am becoming. As much as I hate Winick's work as of late, I have always enjoyed his work on the Batman books, except for the Batman Annual he wrote around Infinite Crisis. With Winick back to writing Jason Todd in the present and fighting/teaming up with Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne I am looking forward to this story. If this cover is any indication then Jason will finally be getting what is coming to him. If Damian actually does in the issue what he does in this cover he will automatically jump to being my third favorite Batman character.
DC RETROACTIVE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA – THE ‘70S #1
Is DC finally going to kill off a character in comics? That never happens. And is it just me or are Batman and Wonder Woman looking at one another in a romantic way? Looks like this will be another comic that will further the case for all those Batman-Wonder Woman shippers.
FLASHPOINT #3 BY ANDY KUBERT
$5 on Superman being behind that door. With Flash and Cyborg's reactions, I am guessing that Superman is skinny as a stick or if Batman's reaction is any indication Superman is naked since Batman is lifting up his cape almost as if he wishes he did not see what he saw.
FLASHPOINT: EMPEROR AQUAMAN #2 BY ARDIAN SYAF
Now that Mera is out of the way Aquaman can go bed Wonder Woman like Geoff Johns mentioned back when Flashpoint was announced. Watch out Wonder Woman, Aquaman is on the prowl.
NEW TEEN TITANS GAMES HARDCOVER BY GEORGE PEREZ
FINALLY!!!! After being delayed for so long we are finally going to be getting Teen Titans: The Game by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. This has been a OGN that has been a long time coming and I am glad we are finally going to be getting it before the world end. Looks like August and September will be awesome months for Teen Titans since we are going to be not only getting this OGN in September but also the New Teen Titans Omnibus from Marv Wolfman and George Perez and the Geoff Johns Teen Titans Omnibus. Great time to be a Teen Titans fan.
POWER GIRL #26 BY SAMI BASRI
After years of asking we are all finally getting the event we have been wanting: Crisis of Infinite Power Girls....or as I like to call it: Crisis of Infinite Boob Shots.
RED ROBIN #25 BY MARCUS TO
After being left out of Batman Inc. it looks like Cassandra is going to eliminate each member of the Batman Family and she starts with the Red Robin. I hope that this time around Cassandra will pwn Tim after what happened in the very bad and forgetable story back during OYL in Robin.
SUPERMAN/BATMAN #86 BY MIGUEL SEPULVEDA
The Cloverfield monster is going to be making his DCU debut and he is going to take Superman out first. When you make your debut you got to take out the biggest name there is. The DCU works in prison rules.
TEEN TITANS #98 BY EDUARDO PANSICA
Geoff Johns............I mean Superboy-Prime is back. Now he can throw all of his DC comics at Superboy and give him some wicked paper cuts. Or he can just punch a window and reset the entire DCU back to how it was before Infinite Crisis.......Oh wait that is what Flashpoint is going to do.
WAR OF THE GREEN LANTERNS: AFTERMATH #1 BY DAVE JOHNSON
Well rumor has it that Kyle Raynor is going bite the bucket during War of Green Lanterns but I highly doubt DC has it in them to kill yet another minority character. Or do they?
WONDER WOMAN #613 BY JOSHUA MIDDLETON
Son of a -----! The new Wonder Woman just does not want to go away. I guess after seeing the images from the new Wonder Woman live-action TV series she wants to stick around. Is it wrong that I want the whole Superboy-Prime return to be because he is going to punch the new Wonder Woman out of reality?
