    Well let’s see I’m probably getting the following, but this list is subject to change based on a whim

    DCeased: Dead Planet #2-I was already a huge fan of this series, no way I’m skipping the sequel.
    Dark Nights: Death Metal #3-I’m already in on Snyder’s stories
    Death Metal Guidebook- I’m interested in both the stories being told but also Zdarksy writing for DC on Death Metal
    Legion of Superheroes #8- I’m already reading Legion
    Young Justice #17- Again, I’m already reading

    I am wondering where Shazam is at though.

    I should probably wait for the trade for 3 Jokers, but I might not be able to wait...
    otherwise:

    - Green Lantern: Earth One #2
    - The Question

    Kinda interested in giving the new JL team a try. Its something different, at least.

    It does look like a bad month, so much of this stuff come off as "grim dark" as the worst of the New 52. Batman events featuring an unbeatable Joker (TWO at the same time), evil Supermen, apocalyptic alt-takes, DC really hasn't changed its mindset all that much, despite trying to distance themselves from the New 52.

    There are some gems though.

    I guess my list is short enough to post, but between coronavirus and my own apathy, who knows if I'll stick with them?
    1) Batman and the outsiders#15; the ras al ghul storyline has gone on for too long.
    2) Batman/ Superman #11; resolicit.
    3)passing on joker war But the detective comics solicit sounds interesting.
    4) legion of super heroes; have no clue when issues 4-7 are supposed to come out; what's the holdup?
    5) Superman 24
    6) teen titans 44 and annual 2; again, wasn't the annual supposed to kick off this story? I hope Damian is grounded for life after this.

    Supergirl and the Terrifics are now digital exclusive for their remaining issues. They're both also ending soon.

    issue 4 is already out, and I think 5 comes out June 6 ? So 6 should be out in July, possibly with 7 ?

    Batman, Superman, Action, Wonder Woman, Hawkman, Young Justice, JL, Teen Titans, Legion, Death Metal for me. And would have picked up Shazam.

    Much shorter list than I used to have. After a 2 month forced break, I am definitely editing down my list. No more picking up titles out of habit, especially if the main characters are being mistreated or the title is perpetually treading water. I'm also done with revolving doors of writers...when I see a writer committed for the long haul I'm going to be far more interested, since that's where great series emerge.
    Rereading my older favorites during the shutdown has reminded me of this hard! (Morrison JLA, Johns JSA, Robinson's Starman, Wolfman's TT).

    Can't help but notice how many titles are ending (or ending the run of the writer): Final writer's arc for Flash, final issues for Harley Quinn, Supergirl, The Terrifics.
    Wonder how much of this was positioning for the now ill-fated 5G?

    Issues 4 and 5 are out already. You can buy them now. Issue 6 is coming out in the second week of June (the 9th) and issue 7 is coming out July the 28th.

    Hope that helps.
