Popverse's top stories of the day


There’s a lot happening in the DC Universe this May, whether it’s Metropolis being overrun by an army of Lobos, Gotham City being remade in Detective Comics, or Sovereign expanding its reach in its ongoing war against the Amazons — and that’s saying nothing about the launch of a new Robin series written and drawn by Juni Bathe start of Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo’s final Nightwing story, or new hardcover editions of Tom King’s Mister Miracle with Mitch Gerads and Supergirl with Bilquis Evely announced for later this year. Oh, did we mention a new collection of Kurt Busiek Superman stories? Because that’s happening, too.

Below, we’ve got the complete list of planned comics from DC for May (and beyond, because some books need to be advertised and ordered in advance for size and scale purposes), from Batman through Hellblazer and MAD Magazine. It’s a lot to take in, we understand, and so we’ve split them up into families for ease of use: Batman, Wonder Woman, Superman, DC Universe (basically, everything superhero that doesn’t fall under the previous three categories, even if it’s officially an 'out-of-continuity' or Elseworlds project), and Beyond the DC Universe (everything that isn’t a superhero book, or otherwise unrelated to the DC Universe).

These are what's called in the industry as solicitations - as in they're puting these out to solicit its customers (in this case comic book stores and book stores) to pre-order these. Somewhere in the past 15 years, these solicits became as much for readers as it was for retailers, but the name 'solicitations' stuck around.

It should also be remembered that May is also the month where Free Comic Book Day 2024 takes place, and that DC’s FCBD releases include one title that claims to be “30 years in the making” and leads into a summer 2024 launch. (Will it connect to any of our top 10 DC comic book stories? We can only hope.) If you’re making plans about what DC’s May looks like, don’t forget that release on May 4.

Ready to jump into what else to expect from May and beyond from DC Comics? Keep reading.

The young prince Damian Wayne was raised to be the heir to the fearsome League of Assassins—to follow in the footsteps of his deadly mother, Talia, and the Demon’s Head himself, his grandfather Ra’s al Ghul. But everything changed when his father, the Batman, reclaimed him and brought him back to Gotham City. As Robin, young Damian suddenly discovered he was merely one of a number of princes, preceded in the role by his “brothers” Nightwing, Red Hood, and Red Robin…and Damian doesn’t care to be merely anything. But when his father is forced to leave the city on urgent business, and a rash of abductions is accompanied by whispers of a demon stalking Gotham’s dark alleys, Damian will find himself battling alongside his adoptive brothers—and in the process, learning what the mantle of Robin really means! Visionary writer/artist Juni Ba makes his mark on the timeless story of Batman and Robin, synthesizing the characters’ complex history into an accessible and heartrending fairy tale!
