    Default DC Next Dawn - April Solicits!




    We present to you DC Next Dawn, a collection of all new fan-made issues on “sale” this month, APRIL 2020!

    What is “DC Next Dawn” and how does it work?

    Next Dawn, previously known as “New Dawn,” is a fan fiction universe and solicitation game that has been in existence on the CBR boards for approximately ten years! It has gone through several iterations and has survived forum reboots! The way it works is that “plotters” write short solicitations for monthly comic books! Then participants “buy” the books they want to read! The books with the most buys get rewards. Sounds fun, right? So let’s do this! Which of this month's solicits interest and excite you? Let us know by posting which books you'd pick up in the virtual Next Dawn Store (this solicitation thread). You can pull as many as you'd like, but also consider your "virtual budget" when making your selections, as sales are used to reward our titles and plotters. Registers are open all month and sales are tallied at the end of the month.

    Absolutely anyone can make purchases right here in this thread - so please do!. It’s free and is basically just saying “I’d read this” or “I like this!” So let us know!

    If you want more information on Next Dawn or are interested in plotting yourself, please visit us at the Next Dawn Bullpen Thread.

    Behold! Our monthly archive!
    This is the repository of our prior work; a compilation of all the monthly solicitation posts since the forum was reset in 2014.

    “ELVEN BLOOD”
    Claw’s quest to find the fabled wizard, Arion of Atlantis, has taken him to the forests of Sornaii. Alas, the homeland of the Elves is a dangerous place - especially for a human, even one who is unconquered and cursed with a demon’s hand! For Pytharia’s King Vandar Adg, the future Vandal Savage, has decreed that Elvenkind is a threat to humanity’s dominance... and has ordered a pogrom. The farther the Elves are driven back into their forest, the more desperate and dangerous they become. Yet the immortal King has also placed a bounty on Claw’s head, meaning the swordsman now finds himself trapped between two warring peoples who both want him dead!
    His only hope may be a renegade Elven ranger, Narilla Rrab, as lethal as she is beautiful, yet sworn to peaceful coexistence with mankind. Alongside her faithful tiger, Bubastis, Rrab will risk it all to get Claw to his destination. Their journey will take them to unexpected and profound places, ultimately revealing the otherworldly true origin of the Elves...as refugees from the distant Graxos system!
    Plus, the young and inexperienced rhyming demon Etrigan remains on Claw’s trail... for he intends to prove himself by reclaiming the demonic hand of his father - Belial! But will he work with the King’s royal assassins... or against them?

    Meanwhile, a massive electrical storm appears over Central City. Massive bolts of lightning crash into buildings and homes, and massive fires are everywhere. Barry feels a bit overwhelmed, but he races into action as The Flash! He zips around the city, helping put out fires as best he can. Just when he feels like he has a handle on the situation, he's struck! He hits the ground, hard. Before losing conciousness, he glances up...and sees a person standing before him, dressed in black, her newly-long hair blowing in the storm: Faora has returned!

    THE FLASH #9
    Plot by EXCITER
    Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
    Art by FRANK CHO
    “KGB FASTER”
    Trapped by Vandal Savage, the Flash’s only way to escape... was through time. Troubled by the revelation that his grandfather was also metahumanly fast, the Speed Force (or is it his own subconscious?) brings Barry to a point where he can confront the currently deceased Mark Thompson: the 1970s!
    Flash Fact: During the Cold War, the rapid acquisition of intelligence on the opposing side's intentions, military, and technology was of paramount importance.
    Unfortunately for Barry, his grandad is a CIA asset engaged in a deadly game of spy versus spy with an Eastern Bloc speedster known as the Red Streak... Can the Flash Family overcome the fastest Soviet alive?
    Я самый быстрый человек в живых.
    In the present and with Barry out of the way, Vandal Savage can move forward with his plans. General Abioye Ezekwesili, the most powerful warlord in Africa, is commanded to launch a full-scale assault on Gorilla City. Wipe it off the map. But Grodd has prepared. His primate army is ready to go to war with Africa and with Savage’s Light... and to tear the Illuminati apart, piece by piece! It’s Gorilla Warfare!
    And in Central City, ace reporter Iris West continues to worry over Barry’s disappearance. When her CIA contact King Faraday shows her photos taken in 1972 of the Flash in Moscow, she fears he’s been lost in time. Fortunately (or perhaps, unfortunately), there’s one “hero” she can turn to for that kind of temporal problem... the illustrious Booster Gold! But if she can actually get past his agent, can she afford to pay his consultation fee?

    GREEN LANTERN #9
    Plot by EXCITER
    Written by MARK MILLAR
    Art by JOE MADUREIRA
    “SHOOTING STARRO”
    Warning! All vessels seeking entrance into Sector 0, the system containing Oa and the Green Lantern Corps Headquarters, must submit to a thorough scan and physical inspection to ensure that no Starro spores are present in or on any life-forms.
    Twelve entire galaxies are under the control of Starro. As an invasion looms, Kilowogg continues to supervise an evacuation of the sectors in Starro’s projected path. The planet Klax, however, refuses to evacuate. Normally they would be free to take their chances - but they’re a strong people, and everyone who falls to the spore swarm becomes another mentally-enslaved weapon in Starro’s arsenal. Kilowogg must make the Klax retreat, one way... or another!
    Meanwhile, the panic caused by Starro is proving dangerous itself. Is there a spore on your neighbor? On your wife? On... you? Who can you trust? As John Stewart desperately tries to maintain order, the authoritarian regime of one particular planet is making it uniquely well-suited to resist the Starro invasion. Warworld is now one of the safest places in the universe, with Mongul welcoming scores of refugees... on the condition that they assimilate to Warworld’s militaristic culture. Has the universal balance of power just shifted?
    And in a desperate attempt to discover Starro’s plans, Hal Jordan prepares to go undercover. The Corps has outfitted him with a “neutered” Starro spore that should allow him to infiltrate the swarm undetected. As a single spore is analogous to a single cell in a body, the plan is to avoid Starro’s notice while clandestinely recovering intel. But sometimes a small itch does get noticed... and sometimes it gets scratched!

    LEGENDS OF THE MULTIVERSE #9
    Plotted by Clark_Kent
    Written by Grant Morrison
    Art by Kenneth Rocafort
    "The Slayer of Earth 4" part 5
    Vicki Vale: Vampire Slayer. A decade ago, Vicki was a student at Ferris High School in Coast City, California. She had the all-American life for a girl her age...she was a cheerleader, she was popular, she had a girlfriend and a happy family. That is, until "Green Tuesday". What began as a regular day became a catastrophe for the citizens of Coast City when Green Lantern, infected by Vampire Batman, lit the skies ablaze with green flame. In an instant, the city became a crater. Only a handful of people survived.
    Wandering the ashy ruins of the city, Vicki was found by The Phantom Stranger. Though he was forbidden from interfering with the course of human history, he took pity on the young woman standing before him. He imbued her with an ancient power, making her the one human with the strength to stand up to the darkness. To be a light for the people. To be a modern day slayer.
    A decade later, and Vicki now wanders the world, fighting evil wherever she can find it. Though she has slain countless vampires, the Batman in Gotham has always eluded her. Perhaps now, with this party of super beings at her side, she may finally be victorious. Perhaps now, she may finally end the darkness...but there is another, watching from afar, who bears the crest of her new super friends...

    THE QUESTION #9
    Plotter: CaptCleghorn
    Writer MARK RUSSELL
    Artist BILL SIENKIEWICZ
    “How Does Your Garden Grow?”
    Vic is back in Hub City but Merry, the Girl of a Googleplex of Gimmicks is staying in Santa Prisca to help restore functionality to the hurricane ravaged island. Ace reporter Vicki Vale is also remaining on the Caribbean island of Santa Prisca, covering the island’s efforts after filing stories regarding the last couple of issues’ human trafficking situation.
    In Hub City, Professor Jason Woodrue’s efforts have had an unusual effect in that the amoebae he had hoped would help plants purify the water have infected him. Instead, Woodrue is sprouting leaves and other signs of plant life. Torn between his plant side wanting to find clean water and his human side knowing that’s unlikely due to the pipe problems, Woodrue comes to the obvious conclusion. He now calls himself the Floronic Man and swears vengeance against those in Hub City who either caused the problem or didn’t fix it. And that, unfortunately, includes just about everyone in the city.
    Because this villain is plant-based, Vic figures that his buddy Aristotle Rodor would be a great help. Tot, however, was infected by some of those amoebae and is currently fighting for his life in the Hub City University Infirmary. What is Vic going to do against this part-man, part-plant being? What can he do? Psst, buy and read the book to find out!

    Written by Marjorie Liu
    Plot by H-E-D
    Art by Riley Rossmo
    Dick is no closer to his goal, and now he has blood on his hands.
    Armando Guitez is dead, and Red X killed him.
    This time, it’s not a hoax. But how could Dick Grayson do such a thing?
    Dick is asking himself the same question. His memories of the event are clouded. He doesn’t remember trying to cut Guitez’s throat. It was like the Red X suit had a mind of its own.
    The stress of being undercover as a villain has been eating him for a long time. Now he’s been pushed to his breaking point.
    Or is he already broken? Has Red X killed the soul of Nightwing?
    Meanwhile, Emily Sung has uncovered the identity of the Green Dragon – Professor Chang, the very same one that supplied Dick with the Red X suit. Can she get this information to Dick before Meridian discovers her espionage? And given the state Dick is in, will it make a difference?
