DC Comics Reveals June Comic Book Releases

DC Comics has announced that it will continue with its New Comic Book Tuesday initiative through June. This summer will see the debut of two of the publisher's most anticipated titles of the year. On June 9, James Tynion IV continues his run on Batman with artist Guillem March. The issue will continue to explore the new villain the Designer. The criminal architect was involved with a mysterious heist involving some of Gotham's greatest rogues, including the Joker, the Riddler, Catwoman, and the Penguin. In the meantime, Batman must find his way out of the Riddler's most deadly death trap ever.

On June 16, writer Scott Snyder, artists Greg Capullo, FCO Plascencia, and Jonathan Glapion reunite for the debut issue of Dark Nights: Death Metal. The sequel to Dark Nights: Metal sees Earth consumed by the Dark Multiverse. The Justice League finds itself at the mercy of the Batman Who Laughs. Humanity struggles to survive and Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman do the same.

June will also see the releases of two new middle grade and young adult original graphic novels from DC’s Books for Young Readers program. You Brought Me the Ocean is a coming-out romance set in the DC universe. It releases on June 9. Primer introduces a new superhero with an array of powers. It releases on June 23.
