DC Comics’ March solicitations have been released, and while it’s a time-honored tradition for comic book fans to pore over every detail of every upcoming release, we realize that your time is valuable! With that in mind, we’ve sifted through DC’s offerings for the third month of 2017 and narrowed them down to the biggest events to keep an eye out for as we head from winter into spring.
RELATED: DC Comics’ March 2017 Solicitations
The Man of Steel’s current status is up-ended in March, as “Action Comics” celebrates 975 issues by crossing-over with “Superman” in order to finally lay to rest all the mysteries surrounding the first DC Comics superhero. “Superman Reborn” will also reveal the identity of one of the prisoners keeping Tim Drake company in Mr. Oz’s other-dimensional jail, as the Rebirth event unfolds.
“Batwoman” #1 arrives, and DC is teasing co-writers Marguerite Bennett & James Tynion IV and artist Steve Epting’s first story as one that will “alter the course of her life forever.” Exactly what that means remans to be revealed, though the rest of the solicit copy tells us we’ll be exploring Kate’s pre-Batwoman past, so it may be a retro-active continuity adjustment.
Meanwhile, across the rest of the DC Universe…
- Kyle Rayner has a choice — remain the sole White Lantern, or once gain become a member of the Green Lantern Corps.
- “Earth 2: Society” comes to a close, as Issue #22 is the series’ final chapter. What this means for Batman, Power Girl, Wonder Woman, The Flash and the rest of the other-dimensional Wonders remains to be seen, but the return of the classic JSA is on the horizon…
- One of the biggest mysteries of the New 52 Universe unfolds in the Rebirth era, and the secret origin of Green Arrow and Speedy’s partnership is finally revealed in detail, as GA and the now-Arsenal team back up in “Reunion.”
- Giuseppe Camuncoli joins Scott Snyder as the latest artist to team with the Eisner Award-winning writer on “All Star Batman.” The series’ eighth issue features a story about classic Bat-rogue, the Mad Hatter.
- A classic villain from the future makes her DCU-proper debut when Curaré arrives in “Batman Beyond” #6. She won’t be the only guest star, either, as the copy teases “an old friend” arriving to help Terry McGinnis as he tackles Brother Eye’s Latest challenge.
- Barry Allen helps (the new) Wally West discover his past as the pair of super-speedsters begin a quest to explore the truth behind Wally’s father, Daniel, aka Reverse Flash.
- “The Odyssey of the Amazons” continues to tell the secret origin of Wonder Woman’s people, but “Red Hood and the Outlaws” #8 shines the spotlight on one in particular. Artemis’ Rebirth origin is explored, and her relationship with Diana will be revealed.
- “New Super-Man” #9 brings Kenan Kong to the United States for the first time, as the Chinese hero teams with Lex Luthor to take on the Triad. The duo’s actions draw the attention of the original Superman, who takes time from his personal crossover/crisis to meet the young man who’s taken on his name on the other side of the globe.
- Aqualad — Jackson Hyde version, not “Titans” co-star Garth — arrives in the Rebirth universe in “Seen Titans” #6, though the solicitation copy indicates that his first encounter with the team will be less friendly and more contentious than “Young Justice” fans might hope to see. Meanwhile, “Titans” continues to tease the involvement of the Watchmen in crafting the Rebirth reality, as “Made in Manhattan” continues in Issue #9.
- “Superwoman” #8 not only reveals exactly what it is that’s killing Lana Lang, it ties into the “Superman Reborn” event as well. Details are understandably thin, but DC promises the weekly crossover event “will greatly impact the future of Metropolis’ newest hero!”
- The DC Comics/Hanna-Barbera crossover annuals arrive, with “Adam Strange/Future Quest,” “Booster Gold/The Flintstones,” “Green Lantern/Space Ghost,” and “Suicide Squad/Banana Splits” providing some of the weirdest team-ups we’ve ever heard of. Plus, Top Cat meets Batman, and the Jetsons may reveal the secret origin of Rosie the housekeeping robot.
- A pair of previously-released #1 issues get the Director’s Cut treatment in March. The first chapters of the current “Suicide Squad” and “Doom Patrol” series will be reprinted, offering fans the chance to see the original penciled art along wit behind the scenes details on what went into the relaunches.
