We’ve got some changes shaking things up beginning in January! First off, even though we don’t cover the title, we’ll be saying goodbye to Superwoman. Beyond that, we’ve got some creative changes taking place with Batwoman, Suicide Squad, and Trinity, with a change in art for Titans.  Ch-ch-ch-changes! And I’m pretty certain we’ll learn of even more creative changes in the coming months considering Chang is still listed for Batman Beyond.

Alright, let’s get to business! Below you’ll find the solicitations for each issue, the creative team behind the issue, and the cover art (if DC has released it). Make sure you share your thoughts in the comments section below! I want to hear what you’re excited about, worried about, your predictions, etc… If you have something to say, we want to know!
