DC January 2022 solicitations
(Image credit: DC)

DC is gearing up for the start of 2022 with the release of the publisher's full January 2022 solicitations, which bring in the fan-favorite Peacemaker from The Suicide Squad, a meeting between the Justice League and the Legion of Super-Heroes, and of course more Batman than you can shine a Bat-Signal at.

We recap some of the highlights here or you can skip right to the action below using the 'Jump To' tabs to your left.

First off, Peacemaker is getting a spotlight across a set of variant covers depicting a version of the character based on John Cena's performance in The Suicide Squad crossing over with a variety of heroes and villains from around the DC Universe. 

From there, Peacemaker is also getting his own one-shot titled Peacemaker: Disturbing the Peace, which revisits the anti-hero's harrowing origin story with writer Garth Ennis, known for his subversive, violent work on Marvel's Punisher as well as DC's Hellblazer and Preacher. The one-shot will bridge the gap for fans of The Suicide Squad movie, reintroducing the comic book character ahead of his headlining HBO Max spin-off show.

Also in January, DC's previously teased Justice League vs. Legion of Super-Heroes breaks out into a six-issue limited series that will bring the two teams together in a story that invokes classic Legion of Super-Heroes tale 'The Great Darkness Saga' (one of the best DC stories of all time). 

And of course, January 2022 brings another expansion of the Batman franchise, with a new Batman Begins-influenced take on Bruce Wayne's journey to becoming a superhero in Batman: The Knight. At the same time, Detective Comics is going weekly in January, with a new World's Finest style Batman/Superman team-up backup feature from writer Mark Waid and artist Dan Mora.

And former superhero playmates Jon Kent and Damian Wayne reunite after a lot of personal changes in the Superman & Robin Special #1

So check out all of DC's January 2022 solicitations and covers and you can also check out the DC October 2021 solicitations, the DC November 2021 solicitations, and the DC December 2021 solicitations and/or scroll through all of DC and Marvel's most recent solicitations on our solicitations tab.

Some great romances are destined to be. The Batman/Catwoman series shows readers the romance between Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle as it changed over their lives, but what about their connections from before they became costumed adventurers? This special, meticulously illustrated one-off issue by John Paul Leon (Batman: Creature of the Night) traces the life of Selina Kyle from its earliest days to her entry into the criminal underworld, and reveals that Bruce was actually a presence in her life all along. Whether fate or coincidence, this story gives even more reasons why Selina and Bruce's connection is one of the most enduring love affairs in comics.
Now expanded to celebrate the legacy of iconic artist John Paul Leon, whose untimely passing after a long battle with cancer shocked the comics world, this special will feature his work completed for the original story and tributes created in his name by some of his closest friends and admirers.

When our heroes saved the Multiverse from Perpetua in Dark Nights: Death Metal, everything was put back where it belonged...and we do mean everything. All the damage from all the Crises was undone, and heroes long thought gone returned from whatever exile they had been in.
Most of them, at least.
Alan Scott, the Green Lantern of the Justice Society of America, has noticed some of his allies are still missing in action, and he's determined to find them. There are others, though, who would rather remain hidden than explain themselves, like Roy Harper, a.k.a. Arsenal, a man who should be dead but now is not. Plus, what does all this mean for the DCU's place in the Multiverse? On opposite sides of a dimensional divide, both Barry Allen and President Superman ponder this question. Not to mention the Darkseid of it all! Or a team of Multiversal heroes called Justice Incarnate!

It seems like years, but it's only been a few days since Raven Roth recovered her memories; trapped her demon father, Trigon, in her amulet; and had her heart broken for the first time. But she doesn't have time to worry about the past…she has to focus on finding a way to get rid of Trigon for good. Garfield Logan still can't believe he has the power to transform into animals. But controlling his newfound abilities is difficult, and their unpredictable nature could have dangerous consequences. Knowing his parents kept this secret hidden from him only makes Gar feel more alone. The heroes are both seeking answers from the one person who seems to have them all figured out: Slade Wilson. When their paths cross in Nashville, Raven and Gar can't help but feel a connection, despite the secrets they try to hide from each other. It will take a lot of trust and courage to overcome the wounds of their pasts. But can they find acceptance for the darkest parts of themselves? Or maybe even love?
