Upcoming comic book solicitations and reviews of key titles along with comic book publishing industry news.

DC Comics First Issues Onsale In July 2014

So as you can obviously tell, these comic book solicitation posts are now fully integrated with the main PiercingMetal.com content after our morphing into WordPress last month. I didn’t make any fuss about it in the previous post about the Marvel Comics offerings but yeah this is how we roll with this stuff from now on and when it comes down to it, this is going to be a lot more fun. That said here are the July first issues from DC Comics. As with these posts of the past the artwork and overall description come care of the press team at the company and then I will toss my thoughts in at the close. Let’s go.

“Grayson” #1

GRAYSON #1: Dick Grayson. Former sidekick. Former Super Hero. Former dead man. And now…agent of Spyral?! A thrilling new chapter of Dick Grayson’s life begins in this new, ongoing series. It’s a super-spy thriller that will shock you and prove one thing: You might think you know Nightwing – but you don’t know Dick.

DC Comics “The New 52” Titles Onsale In May 2014

I’ve been posting broadcast blog items when Marvel Comics has new debut issues hitting the stands and after offering up so many summaries of the DC Comics offerings I felt that I should add their new first issues or beginning mini-series as each month goes along. That being said here are the premiere editions coming out this May from DC Comics “The New 52” grouping.
