Heading into Summer, DC’s ready to turn up the heat with more New Comic Book Tuesday titles heading to open and operating stores across the U.S. and Canada. This title lineup includes the debut of two of the most hotly anticipated events of 2020.


On June 9, writer James Tynion IV and artist Guillem March take readers into the home stretch of their debut story arc featuring the Dark Knight. The greatest heist in history is underway in Gotham City, courtesy of the mysterious crimemaster known as the Designer! Batman knows what he needs to do, but in order to stop the plot, he must first escape the most ingenious death trap the Riddler has ever devised!


On June 16, it’s time to tune up your axes and crank the noise up to 11, as the fan favorite team of writer Scott Snyder, artists Greg Capullo, FCO Plascencia and Jonathan Glapion take the stage for the debut issue of Dark Nights: Death Metal. In this earth-shattering encore, the Earth is enveloped by the Dark Multiverse and the Justice League is at the mercy of the Batman Who Laughs. Humanity struggles to survive in a hellish landscape twisted beyond recognition, while Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman have all been separated and fight for their survival as well as the fate of humanity.


Also set for June is the debut of three new middle grade and young adult original graphic novels from DC’s Books for Young Readers program: Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed, a timely exploration of the refugee experience and activism on June 2, You Brought Me the Ocean, a new coming-out romance set against the backdrop of the DC universe on June 9, and Primer, which introduces a brand new superhero with a colorful array of powers on June 23.
