DC Comics June Solicits With ‘Batman’ #92, ‘Dark Nights: Death Metal’ #1 And Joker Anniversary

by Olly MacNamee

DC Comics rescheduling continues to take form and the one thing that will reign constant going forward seems to be that Tuesday is now new comic book day. Well, we’ll see how that plays out in the months to come, given that one trip a week to a comic book store should be nigh on impossible at the moment, but two a week?
Anyway, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves and focus on what DC Comics will be delivering to shops that are open throughout June 2020, including the highly anticipated Batman #92 and the first ‘proper’ look at Punchline as well as The Joker: 80 Years of The Clown Prince of Crime one-shot.

That’s a very optimistic slate and here’s hoping that there isn’t any more health care upsets by then. But, given the rates of deaths in the States at the moment. I still find I’m pinching myself to check this is all real. Will life really be back to some kind of pre-coronavirus normality by then as DC Comics, and other by then too, think? I’m still not too sure that a trip to the comic book store is worth the gamble at the moment. Maybe it’s time to set up that pull list you were always thinking about.
