Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and all of DC's June 2024 solicitations

DC's full June solicitations have finally arrived, and summer is heating up as the venerable publisher prepares to bring back one of its most classic imprints with the return of Elseworlds.

That's right - Elseworlds is officially coming back. And just like how the alt-reality imprint started way back in the early '90s, the new Elseworlds era is kicking off with a Gotham by Gaslight story, which shows an alternate reality Batman set in the Victorian era. 

In this one, the Gaslight Batman will meet Catwoman - but also his world's newly emerging Superman in Gotham by Gaslight: The Kryptonian era.

June also brings a whole slew of comics celebrating Pride Month, including DC's annual Pride one-shot, this year featuring stories starring Dreamer, Jackson Hyde, Jonathan Kent, Poison Ivy, and more. DC's 2024 Pride celebration also brings a Rachel Pollack retrospective, as well as even more Dreamer content with her own graphic novel - and that's just a taste of DC's big Pride month plans.

There's also the finale of House of Brainiac in June's Superman #15, which will lead right into DC's big summer event Absolute Power, which kicks off in July.

Also included in DC's June 2024 solicitations, despite actually being released in August, is the upcoming Amalgam and Marvel Vs. DC collections, which offer up new collected editions of all of the classic Marvel/DC crossovers, and even their late '90s mash-up comics where characters from both publishers were combined into new heroes and villains.

But that's just scratching the surface of another packed month of releases. Read on for a closer look at some of the biggest highlights from DC's June 2024 solicitations followed by all of the comics and trades. If you still want more, you can also check out all of Marvel and DC's recent listings here on our solicitations tab

DC are going all out with their Pride releases this year. The main DC Pride 2024 special looks full of great creators (and what's this? Al Ewing writing for DC?), but I'm especially pleased to see a special celebrating the life and work of Rachel Pollack. I still remember picking up a random issue of her Doom Patrol run when I was 14 (a quick search reveals it as being #73) and being both baffled and thrilled. That was my first encounter with the World's Strangest Heroes, a team I still have a lot of love for, so thank you Rachel.


Elsewhere, Chip Zdarsky's run of Batman is coming to an explosive head with #148 and #149 as Bruce Wayne finally tackles the combined threat of Failsafe/Zur-En-Arrh. It's been an eventful couple of years for Bruce Wayne and I can't wait to see how this arc pays off and what will be left of our Caped Crusader in the aftermath.


Finally for now, Melissa Marr and Jenn St-Onge's The Strange Case of Harleen and Harley looks like a really fun new take on Harley Quinn's story, with lush art - you can check out our preview of the original graphic novel right here. Until next time, happy reading!

And now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…please put your hands together for Zatanna Zatara! The greatest entertainer in the crappiest hotel and casino of Las Vegas!

Not that the ritzier spots on the Strip haven’t come calling, of course. But since a devastating instance of magic gone wrong that forever changed the course of her childhood, Zatanna would much rather live out her days as a top-hat-and-fishnets-wearing sleight-of-hand stage act than bother with real magic. These days, she doesn’t think much of the past at all.

That is, until an interdimensional vortex cracks open during Zatanna’s act, and a terrifying demon crawls out to kill her. If she hopes to survive the horrors that follow it, she’ll need to take herself and her power seriously for the first time in a long time—and fast. Because when it comes to your past, you can run…but you can’t hide forever!

When Harleen signs up to participate in a clinical research trial with her girlfriend, Pamela, her only goals are extra cash and a chance to control her anxiety.

Soon, Harleen discovers she’s sharing her life with Harley—a take-no-prisoners, who-cares-about-attendance, maybe-we-oughtasave- the-bunnies kind of girl. She is the opposite of Harleen in every way. And although she’s throwing Harleen’s life completely off track, maybe she ain’t so bad either…

Things could not possibly be worse for Fire and Ice, in Beatriz da Costa’s professional opinion. Superman sends the former Justice Leaguers packing for Smallville following an extremely public and utterly disastrous rescue mission (that was all Guy Gardner’s fault, thank you very much) and in doing so doomed them to a fate worse than death: irrelevance.

But Fire…well, Fire will do just about anything to get the heck out of dodge and back on the hero circuit including challenging the DCU’s biggest villains to a knock-down, drag-out, livestreamed brawl in the streets of Smallville!

A raucous, timely, unflinching comedy from rising star Joanne Starer (The Gimmick, Sirens of the City) and Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur co-creator Natacha Bustos about a decades-long friendship on the brink of disaster and what it means to be a superhero at a crossroads in your life, Fire & Ice: Welcome to Smallville launches from its Justice League International roots and introduces the iconic duo to a new generation of fans!
