DC Comics’ solicitation reveal week continues as we get a look at October releasing issues of the Edge corner of the relaunched DC Universe! Via the publisher’s blog The Source, DC has released solicits and covers for #2 issues including Paul Cornell and Miguel Sepulveda’s “Stormwatch,” Ron Marz and Sami Basri’s “Voodoo,” Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti and Moritat’s “All-Star Western” and many more. Earlier today, CBR also had the exclusive word on James Robinson’s return to Opal City with a new Shade-starring title, a 12-issue series featuring covers by Tony Harris and interiors by a rotating roster of artists, starting with Cully Hamner and including Gene Ha, Jill Thompson, Darwyn Cooke and more.
In addition to “The Shade,” earlier today DC announced the rest of its October Dark titles including Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette’s “Swamp Thing” #2 and Jeff Lemire and Travel Foreman’s “Animal Man” #2 amongst others. The Dark announcements came on the heels of yesterday’s Batman October announcements, which included #2 issues for the Bat-family books as well as “Penguin: Pain and Prejudice” Gregg Hurwitz and art and covers by “Spawn’s” Szymon Kudranski and “The Huntress” by Paul Levitz with art by Marcus To and John Dell, two brand new miniseries from the Dark Knight’s Gotham-based corner of the DC Universe.
