“Robin War” Ends as “Edge of Oblivion” Begins, More DC January Highlights

DC ComicsJanuary 2016 solicitations arrived on Monday afternoon, and continuing in the monthly tradition, CBR has sorted through the long list of upcoming individual issues, collected editions and merchandise to highlight the most pressing information.

“Poison Ivy,” “Green Lantern Corps” Debut in DC’s January 2016 Solicitations

  • “Green Lantern: The Lost Army” is set to end in December, but in the following month, “Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion” will take its place, with writer Tom Taylor and artist Ethan Van Sciver at the helm. First discussed earlier this month at New York Comic Con, the series is said to take place where “Lost Army” left off, with the GLC facing “dying gods, worlds torn asunder and a desperate group of survivors whose only hope is these cosmic heroes.”
  • As “Edge of Oblivion” begins, the “Robin War” crossover event ends in January’s “Robin War” #2, with aftershocks advertised for “Robin, Son of Batman” #8, “We Are Robin” #8, “Detective Comics” #48 and “Teen Titans” #16. Intriguingly, the “We Are Robin” solicitation promises a new group rising: The Jokers.
  • The relationship between Batman and Superman is famously contention in Frank Miller‘s classic “The Dark Knight Returns,” but it looks like things may be changing in the soon-to-debut sequel “The Dark Knight III: The Master Race.” The solicitation text for January’s issue #3 reads: “The hardest thing for Batman is to admit his greatest strength: He’s just one man, and sometimes he needs help. With so much at stake, will he turn to help of the Super variety?”
  • Along with “Edge of Oblivion, several more DC Universe #1s on the way in January: “The Legend of Wonder Woman,” “Poison Ivy: Cycle of Life and Death,” “Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Deadshot/Katana” and “Swamp Thing.” Additionally, the first issue of digital-first “Injustice: Gods Among Us: Year Five” will be released in January, based in the video game and said to be the “final year” of the series.
  • Get ready for plenty of indie comics talent to contribute to “Gotham Academy” #14 and the “Gotham Academy Yearbook” story, including Hope Larson, Katie Cook and Zac Gorman.
  • Jesus Merino guests on art for January’s “Astro City” #31.
  • The next stop for “Harley Quinn,” in January’s issue #24? Arkham Asylum. “Harley’s got an endangered friend to save, but there’s just one problem: she’s got to get through Arkham Asylum first!”
  • Role reversal time: In “The Flash” #48, The Flash is on the run from the law and being pursued by The Rogues.
  • And Greg Capullo may be taking a hiatus from “Batman” in the near future, but before that, he’s illustrated a rather unsetlling cover for January’s issue #48:
