DC Comics November 2007 Soliciations

Monday, August 20, 2007

Newsarama's got DC's November solicitations up at their website. Not much new on the collections front (maybe we'll see more 2008 next month), though a couple of interesting nuggets.

* We get the first Tales of the Multiverse here with Batman: Vampire. What other Tales might we expect? Me, I always liked the ones where they switched the characters origins, like Superman raised by the Waynes or Batman getting a Green Lantern ring.

* Batman/Superman: Saga of the Super Sons has a story from the late, lamented Elseworlds 80-Page Giant.

* Batman: The Man Who Laughs hardcover collects this Ed Brubaker graphic novel, largely we're guessing to capitalize on buzz for The Dark Knight movie. The three-part "Made of Wood" story is by Brubaker with Patrick Zircher.

* Harley Quinn: Preludes and Knock-Knock Jokes - DC's shooting for the stars with a hardcover collection of this series, though Karl Kesel and the Terry and Rachel Dodson have a lot of pull. We'll have to see if this one gets a volume two.

That's all for now. Remember, if you'd like to guest-write a column for Collected Editions, send an email to the address at right. Later!

  1. I thought the November solicitations were a massive disappointment collections wise. The only TPBs that jumped out at me were All-New Atom vol.2 and the first Welcome to Tranquility trade (coming out a year after the first issue hit) - both written by Gail Simone.

    And still no sign of the final Last Son story.

  2. Yeah, the only mainstream releases were Flash, Atom, and The Spectre. Last month's solicitations were pretty heavy though, so my wallet actually doesn't mind so much.
