DC Comics July 2021 Full Solicits And Solicitations

Comic News

Over a week later than expected (thanks to Adam Philips at DC Comics being made redundant a couple of months ago), DC Comics’ full July 2021 solicits and solicitations are up… you may also notice as well as being late, now that DC Comics is no longer part of the Diamond structure, they can play faster and looser with schedules, so a number of series are being retrosolicited with their first issues for June, such as Static: Season One #1 and The Conjuring #1 with #2 listed for July. This is the way of things going forwards.

SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #1

Story by Tom Taylor

Art by John Timms

Covers by John Timms, Inhyuk Lee, Stephen Byrne, Jen Bartel.

Jonathan Kent has experienced a lot in his young life. He’s traveled the galaxies with his Kryptonian grandfather and lived in the future with the Legion of Super-Heroes, who were intent on training him for the day his father, Clark Kent, could no longer be Superman. There is a hole in the Legion’s history that prevents Jon from knowing exactly when that will happen, but all signs point to it being very soon. It’s time for the son to wear the cape of his father and bear the symbol of hope that has told the world who Superman really is. Ushering in a whole new era for the House of El!

Also, “Tales of Metropolis” continues. Jimmy Olsen gathers his misfit heroes, including Ambush Bug and Gangbuster, to find out who the Projectress really is and why she set her sights on Bibbo!

SUPERMAN AND THE AUTHORITY #1

Story by Grant Morrison

Art by Mikel Janin

Covers by Mikel Jani­n, Bryan Hitch, Jen Bartel.

Sometimes even Superman finds a task almost impossible. Sometimes even the Last Son of Krypton needs to enlist help. Some tasks require methods and heroes that don’t scream “Justice League.” So Clark Kent, the Metropolis Marvel, seeks out Manchester Black, the most dastardly of rogues, to form an all-new Authority tasked with taking care of some business on the sly. Not only will Black know the right candidates for the team, but if Superman can make him behave himself and act in service of the greater good, then he’ll prove literally anyone can be a hero! They’ll have to move quickly, however, as the Ultra-Humanite forms his own team to take out the Man of Steel. This new limited series helps launch an all-new Superman status quo, setting up story elements that reverberate across both Action Comics and Superman: Son of Kal-El in the months to come.

At long last, the most famous face of the Milestone Universe is making his shocking return! Bullied nerd Virgil Hawkins wasn’t the kind of kid you’d normally find on the streets at a protest– but like everyone else in the city of Dakota, he was fed up. Unfortunately, the first time he stood up to raise his voice, the world turned upside down. The experimental tear gas released that day left some of his classmates maimed or dead…but it left Virgil, and others, with stunning new abilities. Virgil has power inside him now — real power, the ability to channel and manipulate electromagnetic fields.

But there’s anger burning inside him, too. What is he supposed to do about all of this? And first and foremost — what is he supposed to do about his bullies, now that they’ve got superpowers too?

A dynamic creative team of new comics voices and Milestone Media veterans join forces to open up a new chapter in the story of the most iconic Black teen superhero in comics history.

Long ago, the stranded alien known as Arnus gave up hope of returning to his home planet. Tragically, he’d also realized that his adopted home of Earth was beyond saving. Content to waste away his long life in a human guise, Arnus was past caring…until the day a young woman named Raquel Ervin crashed into his life. Soon she’d convinced him to put his incredible power to work again as the heroic Icon…and to transform her into his sidekick, Rocket! But an innocent question on Rocket’s part — “Why can’t we do something about the drugs on my corner?” — quickly set a chain of events in motion leading to the pair becoming the most hunted beings on Earth…and they’re not just being pursued by Earthlings, either!

Unleashing a tale of power and responsibility that will stretch from the boardrooms of corporate America to the jungles of South America and the depths of deep space!

As the free Fables struggle to regroup following the destruction of their New York City stronghold, Mr. Dark grows more powerful than ever! Sitting amid the wreckage that was once Fabletown, this sinister figure is building a web of fear and anger that threatens to ensnare any Fable who strays too close. Who among the Fables could defeat such a foe? The witches and warlocks formerly of the 13th floor? A damaged Rose Red with nothing to lose? Or perhaps it’s a job…for a super-team! This third of four compendiums collects stories from Fables #83-113, the original graphic novel Fables: Werewolves of the Heartland, and “The Great Fables Crossover” chapters from Jack of Fables #33-35 and The Literals #1-3.
