The DC September Solicitation Hunt Begins! Detective Comics, Dark Knight And Batman Get Four Issues Each

np060313_arcane_articleUPDATE: The cover to Swamp Thing #23.1/Arcane #1 appears… of all places…in Maxim.

We’ve seen some covers. But here come the solicitations! First up from DC Comics,  Crave Online and CBR. We’ll update this article as and when we can…

But this is the answer as to how DC is going to get 56 issues out from 42 monthly comics, I guess…

We start with the four issues of Detective Comics for September’s Villain Month. And yes, Batman is tied/chained/gagged on almost every cover… for some reason it seems to be the same Batman again and again.
