Next week sees the release of DC Comics’ solicitations for September 2017. But, as ever, they have been sneaking out peeks of what’s coming up. And we’ve been collecting them from our PR inboxes ahead of next week’s full listings. This should give you an idea of some of their important launch titles for the month.

The launch of Dark Matter titles Silencer and Sideways, Mr Oz coming to Action Comics and Detective Comics and the Dark Multiverse invading the DC Universe and dressing up as Batman… with a little help from Comic Book and (UPDATE) CBR.

Dan Abnett with John Romita Jr.

Honor Guest was the world’s deadliest assassin, until she traded it all for a chance at a “normal” life in the suburbs, free from the constant death and destruction. But as her former life comes back to haunt her, Honor must strip away her suburban persona and protect her family as THE SILENCER.

Dan DiDio, Justin Jordan and Kenneth Rocafort

Forever changed by the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, a teenager struggles to live through high school as he comes in contact with Dark Matter and gains the power to teleport through the Dark Dimension.
