DC announced some interesting (and in some cases exciting) changes for February! Jay covered some of these creative changes, and there are a few other announcements you’ll find below! DC will also release Neal Adams themed variant covers in February. The final versions of the covers haven’t been released yet, so we will save the Variant Themed Cover Poll for a later date.
Alright, on to business. Below you’ll find the solicitations for each issue, as well as the cover art (if DC has released it). As a reminder, I’m not putting the talent credits in this post because there’s already a ton of information here. Make sure you give me a piece of your mind in the comments! I want to hear what you’re excited about, worried about, your predictions, etc… If you have something to say, I want to know!
