Its a BIG week at DC this time around.
5th Wednesday of a month means Annuals, and we get a good batch this time. A few like Action, Swamp Thing and Titans lead off or tie directly into the regular storyline in the ongoing comic. The Green Lantern one actually wraps up the current Lights Out battle against Relic.
A few other companies are getting into the 5th week Annuals set up as well, as we get an Adventure Time Halloween Special labeled as an annual, and My Little Pony Annual, that features the human versions of the ponies as seen in the recent movie.
Forever Evil spin-offs continue as Steve Trevors team, Argus, gets 6 issues to battle the villains without the aid of their top heroes.
Damian may be dead...but he lives on in Damian Son of Batman. A 4 issue series where hes all grown up and ready to take his fathers place. Not sure if its being called an Elseworlds or not.. could be this story may still fit continuity at some point.
Superior Spider-Man Team-up Special, ties up the 3 part story from All New X-Men and Hulk. The Ultimate Universe faces the Galactus runs amok. It all starts in Cataclysm #0.1. I'm not even sure how much of this stuff will be totally overlooked when you consider
Sandman Overture #1 will be on the shelves with them. The FIRST NEW Sandman story in over a decade, looks to be the biggest seller of the year. My advance pre-orders are already dwarfing anything I've seen in years. And with good reason, advance looks have been popping up on the internets and it looks amazing. Don't wait for the trade on this one, buy it as it comes out every 2 months.
