Full DC Solicitations For May 2013. Apart From Green Lantern And Edge…

Thanks to Comic Book Resources, IGN, Newsarama, Comic Vine, MTV, Comics Alliance and iFanboy, here’s the DC Solicitations for May 2013.

Except… there’s none of the Green Lantern group solicitations. And why? I don’t know. But someone thinks I should… something they don’t want to announce before the DC Creative Summit?

 

Also, no Edge solicitations. But no one (yet) alleging a reason for that!
