DC Comics have released their solicitations for books being published in August of 2020. Additional items include Dark Nights: Death Metal Guidebook #1 whose solicitation includes the mention of Batman having a Black Lantern ring. Two hardcover collections are of particular interest – one being a Grant Morrison Omnibus of this JLA run. The other is the huge box set collecting both the Blackest Night and Brightest Day series that we released information on back in March. That set is already available for pre-order from Amazon.
The solicitations also confirm the announcement that Green Lantern: Earth One Volume 2 had been pushed back to August 11th. This book is also already available for pre-order from Amazon, although as of the time of this posting they have a published release date of August 8th. Far Sector #7, which was going to start the series change to a bi-monthly schedule starting in June, has not yet been re-solicited and remains among the missing.
