Welcome to August my comic loving friends and I hope that the summer has been treating you well so far. Can you believe that we are almost done with it? Before you blink, September is going to be here and it’s back to school for the readers who are doing that and more focus on the workaday world for the folks that enjoyed some quality break time during the summer months. I’m starting our comic book solicitations narratives with the stuff coming out from DC Comics this month because we are going to find the movie “Suicide Squad” opening up at the end of the week. This will be the third film in the growing DC Extended Universe and there are plenty of titles with characters from the film on the stands this month. We posted the films “Blitz Trailer” some weeks ago which you can see HERE if you missed it. As before I’m using the provided to the media press copy and artwork to bring all of this coolness to your attention. I’ll return at the close to offer up some additional personal Geek opinion. Here we go, and believe me you will want a new coffee or water for this since there are quite a few titles to line out. Please remember that these are for across the whole month and have not been broken down into a week by week availability.
