“Injustice” Ends, Killer Croc Debuts in “Batman ’66” and More from DC in October

DC Comics broke plenty of news this past weekend at Comic-Con International in San Diego, announcing major projects like the October-debuting weekly series “Batman and Robin Eternal,” three new post-“Convergence” ongoings and 12 new Vertigo titles. But despite all of those announcements, DC’s freshly released October 2015 solicitations still contained plenty of worthwhile new information, and here’s a look at what’s worth knowing.

  • “Injustice: Gods Among Us Year Four,” written by Brian Buccellato and illustrated by multiple artists, is set to come to a close in October with issue #12. Yet as early as March of this year, Buccellato dropped hints on what “Year Five” might look like in an interview with IGN.
  • When the “Batman ’66” comic was first announced back in 2013, writer Jeff Parker promised that Killer Croc — who was created years after the TV series ended — would make his way into the series. That looks to finally happen with “Batman ’66” #28, featuring a Croc story by Parker and Dean Haspiel that was initially solicited much earlier in the series’ run. The Scarecrow will also make a “Batman ’66” debut in the same issue, in a story illustrated by Lukas Ketner.
  • Geoff Johns announced a series of “Justice League: Gods and Men” one-shots at Comic-Con, spinning out of “Darkseid War,” and now they’re here: “Justice League: Gods and Men – Batman” will be written by Peter J. Tomasi and illustrated by Fernando Pasarin; “Justice League: Gods and Men – The Flash” will be written by Rob Williams and illustrated by Jesus Marino; “Justice League: Gods and Men – Green Lantern” will be written by Tom King and illustrated by Evan “Doc” Shaner; “Justice League: Gods and Men – Superman” and “Justice League: Gods and Men – Lex Luthor” will both be written by Francis Manapul and illustrated by Bong Dazo; and “Justice League: Gods and Men – Shazam!” will be written by Steve Orlando and illustrated by Scott Kolins. Manapul will illustrate covers for all six one-shots.
  • With Tony S. Daniel taking on lead art duties for “Batman and Robin Eternal,” Tyler Kirkham is now artist on “Deathstroke.” Daniel remains as co-writer on the book with James Bonny.
  • “Prez,” originally solicited as a 12-issue series, will now run for six issues as revealed by a note to retailers in DC’s October 2015 solicitation text.
  • “Detective Comics” has a new creative team: Tomasi and artist Marcio Takara, following Manapul and Buccellato’s run on the Batman series.
  • Four of the 12 new Vertigo series are solicited to debut in October: “The Twilight Children,” “Survivor’s Club,” “Clean Room” and “Art Ops.”
  • DC no longer publishes new “League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” material, but the company’s October 2015 solicitations include a “Graphitti Designs’ Gallery Edition” of the original Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neillsix-issue series; similar to IDW Publishing’s Artist’s Editions, with reproductions of O’Neill’s original art.
