SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER1 of 12DC's Rebirth rolls on in September, with more new titles launching, more classic heroes returning, and the company's first big crossover since its relaunch.
As always, Newsarama has delved into DC's September solicitations to track down the biggest news hidden within in the form of the Batman family's "Night of the Monster Men."
THE REMASTERED RACE2 of 12The Dark Knight II: The Master Race has been plagued with delays for the last several months, with issue #6 hitting in August, and no date announced for #7. But September won't pass without an issue hitting shelves.
In September, DC will release a "director's cut" of The Dark Knight III #1, which includes the original mini-comic reprinted at standard size.
GUN IN HAND3 of 12Green Lantern Simon Baz certainly has his own style - he even carries a gun, which seems paltry in comparison to the powerful weapon he keeps on his ring finger.
Green Lanterns #7 will address Baz's tendency to pack heat, using his gun as a focal point for the level of trust not just between Baz and his fellow Earth bound GL Jessica Cruz, but between Baz and his own Power Ring.
CYBORG Vs. ROBOT4 of 12Cyborg's new Rebirth ongoing series launches in September, and pits him against no less an enemy than "every robotic threat" in the DC Universe.
Given the number of evil robots in the DCU, that could mean everyone from Brainiac to L-Ron. Seems like Vic will have his shiny, metal hands quite full.
BACK FROM THE DEAD5 of 12Six-Pack & Dogwelder: Hard-Travelin' Heroz may occupy the weirdest corner of Rebirth, but with #2, the series will bring back a classic DC character in the Spectre.
The Spectre hasn't been seen since running afoul of John Constantine and vowing to take his soul - will their paths crossing in Hard-Travelin' Heroz mean he's coming to collect on his debt?
SUPER-ENEMIES6 of 12Superman and Aquaman may be old pals (Super Friends, even?) but come Aquaman #6, the two heroes will be clashing when the Man of Steel comes calling for Arthur and Mera, who are on the run for a crime they didn't commit.
Maybe this is Aquaman's chance to prove why he can go toe to toe with the Justice League's biggest big gun.
FREEDOM FIGHTERS7 of 12New-Superman #2 introduced the Chinese Justice League, and in September, #3 will introduce the Chinese equivalent of another venerable DC team: The Freedom Fighters.
DYNAMIC FILL-INS8 of 12Only six issues into DC's Rebirth and its relaunched Batman will already have a fill-in artist as Ivan Reis steps in to pencil a one-off issue between the story's first arc and its "Night of the Monster Men" crossover.
It's unclear whether this is a hiccup in scheduling between Batman's two ongoing artists David Finch and Mikel Janin, or simply an opportune moment to transition to the next story. Interestingly, Batman #7 will also have a fill-in, as Riley Rossmo draws the first part of the aforementioned "Night of the Monster Men."
Btw, the crossover and the creative shuffling it brings may be a preview as to how DC plans to keep up with the twice-monthly shipping schedule of its key titles.
TWO-FACES, ONE CURE9 of 12Almost since Harvey Dent had one side of his face scarred and became the twisted Two-Face, Batman and others have been searching for a way to fix him and bring back the old Harvey.
Judging by the solicit for All-Star Batman #2, the Rebirth era is no different, as the story that has Batman and Harvey on the run together will apparently focus on finding a "cure" for Two-Face. Let's hope this one sticks better than some previous attempts.
RIP OLIVER QUEEN10 of 12Could DC already be headed for the first major shake-up of the Rebirth era? If the solicit for Green Arrow #6 is to be believed, it looks like Oliver Queen may be murdered this summer.
Or does it? Despite teasing his apparent death in #6, #7's solicit seems to indicate he's going to be just fine. And let's be honest - it wouldn't be the first time Ollie's cheated death.
LIKE FATHER, LIKE DAUGHTER11 of 12Commissioner Gordon may have just finished a stint as Batman, but giving up the cape and cowl doesn't mean he's giving up fighting crime.
In fact, with Rebirth, he's back at the head of the GCPD (mustache intact) and springing into action alongside his daughter Barbara, A.K.A. Batgirl, and her team in Batgirl & the Birds of Prey #2.
