Each week, we take a look at the highlights of the weeks DC COMICS titles available in stores and in digital, giving you a comprehensive guide to your comics pull list.

Slowly, slowly, catchy monkey. Here at An Englishman In San Diego, we’re making in-roads to talk to some of the biggest publishers in comics, primarily to bring you headlines of their convention misadventures. However, as part of the press access, most of them are being spectacularly generous in also sending us through preview materials of their upcoming releases. Isn’t that nice of them?

Good news. One of the Big Two has broken down from my incessant nagging and are now providing us with covers and pages of just a few of the weeks books – hey, it’s a start, right? It’s not like I was expecting a parcel showing up at my door with everything DC Comics, but I’m glad we’ve got the opportunity to bring you what we can. I’m hoping we can start providing reviews of DC’s comic books and graphic novels pretty soon, too: watch this space. In the meantime, here’s the full list from DC Comics available at your LCBS:
