COVER SHOTS: The Best From DC Comics' August 2013 Solicitations

Well that moment all Legion fans are familiar with has finally rolled around. In August the latest Legion series comes to a close, along with Etrigan's Demon Knights, Dial H and Threshold. While we wonder how long it will be until we see the magic of the 31st century again, looking at the rest of their August 2013 solicitations, these are the best covers.


If the composition is clean and the angles are working, sometimes that's all it takes for a cover to work. While Green Arrow and his buddy may have each other's backs to ward off DC's cancelation team, with a hit TV series in the works, I think they're pretty safe.

DC says:  Ollie learns the secret origin of Shado, and Count Vertigo attacks!

Earth 2 #15

Maybe the reason why the folks from Apokolips like to rule so much is it gives them a great opportunity to display their graphic design super powers in a range of domineering posters? Is typography Darkseid's true super power? Seems like it!

Superman/Batman #3

Says Batman 'Hey, I usually stand infront! I'm Batman!' Replies Superman 'Yes, but now I have a cool movie coming out' 'Okay' admits Batman 'You stand infront'.

 What do you think?

Sound off below. For DC's full August line-up, follow the jump!


  1. Oh God I was dreading this; its been on the cards for a while that DC was planning to secretly pare down the LSH to make them into the 31st Cen version of the JLA.
    I just hope the next iteration of my second fave comic [after the FF] is good enough.

  2. Forgot to sign off with 'LLL' [Long Live the Legion'].

  3. Thanks Karl, yeah it's a pretty sad loss. I don't know if I could do a big 7 of the 31st century... I think part of the appeal is you never know who'll come flying (or even bouncing) in. Feel kinda sad for Etrigan and Dial H too as they are both really wicked concepts. I thought the aim of the 52 was to diversify types of stories. With these cuts there is no more sword and sorcery and no more far flung futures...

    LLL for me too.
