DC Comics' New Line of #1 Issues Hit Shelves THIS WEEK!

DC-Comics-Universe-Rebirth-Checklist-June-2016-Solicitations

So far, as part of DC Comics' REBIRTH relaunch, fans have been treated to some one-shot stories, bridging the gaps between The New 52 and Rebirth series' of titles, and planting the seeds of what we will read going forward with our favorite characters. This week, hop into the brand-new #1 issues of the new on-going series' for DC's hottest characters!

STL007331

BATMAN #1

"I AM GOTHAM": Chapter One
No one has ever stopped the Caped Crusader. Not The Joker. Not Two-Face. Not even the entire Justice League. But how does Batman confront a new hero who wants to save the city from the Dark Knight?

STL008078

GREEN ARROW #1

"THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN": Chapter One
As Oliver struggles with how he can fight "the man" when his huge fortune makes him the man, he and Black Canary uncover a deadly new threat to Seattle that cuts the Archer to the bone.
THEY SAID IT: "My touchstones are [former GA writers] Dennis O'Neil and Mike Grell, while trying to make the series my own," says writer Benjamin Percy. "Green Arrow will be a politically and culturally relevant series. Expect stories that aim a broadhead into the zeitgeist, that are ripped from the headlines."

STL007336

GREEN LANTERNS #1

"RED PLANET": Chapter One
New Lanterns Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz promised to protect others in brightest day or blackest night, but as "Red Planet" begins to rise, the partners find themselves confronted with a unimaginable threat from Bleez and the Red Lanterns!
THEY SAID IT: "I am psyched for GREEN LANTERNS!" says writer Sam Humphries. "Myself, Simon, and Jessica are all new to the DC Universe. We're gonna have a blast exploring it-if we don't destroy it first."

STL007338

SUPERMAN #1

"THE SON OF SUPERMAN": Chapter One
The Last Son of Krypton must decide whether to help his young son use his new and rapidly increasing abilities, or hide them from the world.

DC Comics isn't done with the one-shots just, yet though!

This week, the last one-shot of the month of June comes out: TITANS: REBIRTH #1!

It's not the last one-shot DC Comics will be putting out, as per their Rebirth line, but it is one of the most important for those readers wanting to keep up with the major Rebirth revelations that spun-out of the initial DC Universe: Rebirth one-shot that started this all.
If you wanted to find out what happened immediately after DC Universe: Rebirth #1, The Flash: Rebirth #1 is the place to go.
The Flash: Rebirth #1 proved to be incredibly significant within the larger narrative of the DC Universe... Not only did it continue, and even conclude some of the plot threads left behind by DC Universe: Rebirth #1, but it set the seeds for Titans: Rebirth #1, as well. One of the major characters that's wrapped up in the middle of this whole thing is going to be playing a major role in the new Titans on-going series going forward, and you guys aren't going to want to miss out on any of it!

But, like with the other new on-going series', you're gonna want to pick up the Titans: Rebirth #1 one-shot, first!

TITANS: REBIRTH #1

Friends. Teammates. Titans. Donna Troy, Arsenal, Garth, Lilith, and Nightwing were all that and more until a mysterious force erased their memories, forcing them to forget what they could accomplish together. Reunited with their memories returned, the Titans must destroy the interdimensional demon that broke them apart and threatens reality itself.
THEY SAID IT: "Grayson and Donna were a few of the characters I first worked on at DC, so it feels like a homecoming for me," explains penciller Brett Booth. "I'm beyond happy!"
WARNING: Do NOT read this issue until after you read DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1.
 

You're not going to want to miss out on this one!
As of this last week, we've found out that a lot of the Rebirth one-shots have been sold out at, nearly, every comic store in the country, and fans are trying to find places to find copies of these books. We knew that, at least, we weren't able to buy anymore since they're all sold-out on a distributor level. Luckily, we've got our friends' and customer's backs, as we've made sure to buy plenty extra so that we have enough for everyone. The only one we still don't have are the DC Universe: Rebirth #1 one-shots. We sold out of those the weekend after it came out. We're trying to get more in, but if you're still looking for the other one-shots, we still have them all, so you better get them while they're still here!
