We’ve been updating the DC Comics May 2019 solicitations (we missed out on a few pages and have finally found them again). Which also includes the re-solicitation of Batman And The Outsiders #1, which was solicited last year for Black History Month, but then disappeared. Well, it’s back, and planned for May 2018.
This was the previous solicitation for the first issue.
BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS #1
(W) Bryan Hill (A) Dexter Soy (CA) Tyler Kirkham
When the quest for justice drives Batman into some morally ambiguous areas, he calls in the most moral man he knows: Jefferson Pierce, a.k.a. Black Lightning, and his team of operatives known as the Outsiders! Several years ago Batman personally put the Barrera family into hiding after they suffered through terrible experiments at the hands of an organization called the Ark. Now all but one of them has turned up dead…and Batman needs to locate Sofia Barrera before the wrong people get their hands on her-and her surprising power! But it wouldn’t be Batman without a hidden agenda, would it? And when Black Lightning, Katana, the Signal and Orphan find out what Batman is really up to, their every loyalty will be called into question!In Shops: Dec 19, 2018
Final Orders Due: Dec 03, 2018
The delayed Batman Damned #3 is also resolicited. Though we know much will have changed there–with pages repainted.
Note it’s on sale for the 22nd of May, while the collected edition of Batman Damned that is in the same catalogue…
This will be out in September. Probably. This will be the first reprinting of that infamous first issue–with a few colouring printing amends made, I am sure. One day a future DC Comics regime will reprint what caused all the fuss in the first place.
