Well, this is going to be short and sweet! DC doesn’t have any new, physical comics hitting shelves this week other than a few graphic novels. As bummed as that might make some of you, keep in mind that there is a logistical reason for this since DC will no longer use Diamond as their distributor going forward. That being said, you might be excited about some of the graphic novels hitting shelves!
