The advance solicitations for DC Comics’ September 2014 event month
hit today, giving us a glimpse four months into our future, and five years into the future of the DC Universe.
And it’s a doozy.
Whether it’s new aspects of the world joining the Green, Red, and Gray, or Harley and Joker getting married, or Catwoman taking on a second identity, Heretic’s return, or even something hopeful and unexpected like The Phantom Stranger being a single step from redemption, there’s enough in these solicitations to fill two columns full of hints. In fact, there were so many major hints, teases, and revelations that we had to forego our usual countdown posting time of 9pm to make sure this information was readily available as soon as possible.
Luckily, we only have to do one, and that means those things you see above just get their “honorable mention” in the introduction, and the ten we focus on are the real meat and potatoes. Read on to see the ten things we thought were most interesting, important, or world-shattering in these advance solicitations, and see what’s in store for the DCU.
