    Default DC Next Dawn - May Solicits!




    We present to you DC Next Dawn, a collection of all new fan-made issues on “sale” this month, MAY 2021!

    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.

    AQUAMAN #7
    Plot by EXCITER & H-E-D
    Written by GEOFF JOHNS
    Art by JIM LEE
    “AMAZONIA-ATLANTIS: WEIGHT OF THE WAVES” part three “WHAT LIES BENEATH”
    Now.
    As the territorial dispute continues to escalate, forces from the United Realms of Amazonia arrive in Xebellian waters. King Orm, however, is resolved to defend Atlantis’ sovereignty. The tense stand-off could erupt into open combat at any moment - and King Shark of the Fisherman Kingdom smells blood in the water! Will he ignite a war with “the bite heard ‘round the world”?
    Meanwhile, in an attempt to negotiate a truce, the captured Diana offers to show Mera what truly lies beneath Aurania and Venturia... but after so many ages in isolation, are either of them prepared for what they actually find there?
    Millennia Ago.
    Many noble warriors had fallen to give their greatest heroes, the Others, a chance to slip through enemy lines and complete an impossible quest to imprison the mad gods themselves. The Others - of Atlantis: the sorcerer Arion, the tide priestess Jarax, the man-of-war Palardan; of Amazonia: the archer Valari, the kanga-rider Exposta, and the general Killaristos; Garin Mar, the Ungaran Green Lantern of Sector 2814; and the human warrior with a demon hand, Claw the Unconquered - were the last, best hope to defeat Triton and Enyo. Though fated to succeed, two among them would betray the others and fall in combat, their shame hidden from history. But who? And why?
    Now.
    The Others were named after a legendary assemblage of heroes. Led by Aquaman, each bore and protected an artifact from ancient Atlantis. The Amazonian seer Kahina possessed the Seal of Clarity, a cypher capable of deciphering any code... even the combination to unlock the god-prisons of Aurania and Venturia! Can Arthur safeguard Kahina and the Seal from those hunting them - a clandestine coven still loyal to Triton and Enyo? And could this coven really be led by two long-deceased traitors from ages past?

    It's a day of the week ending with a Y, so Batman's found himself a new protege to train in the arts of vigilantism. Carrie Kelley is having a bunch of fun, but what's up with these villains? They seem pretty lightweight even for "training week".
    Well, turns out Batman thinks it's weird too. The Joker is in prison, so who is this guy with a surfboard calling himself the Joker and slapping people with a plastic fish? The Master Detective thinks an alternate Earth might be involved, but he'll need some bigger brains on deck to verify his theories.
    Question is, will Carrie get along with her replacement trainer Cassandra Cain? And what will Batman find as he follows the trail of this alternate Joker?

Her key witness is newly promoted GCPD detective Renee Montoya, a long-time ally. The current case is complicated by a street gang looking for revenge against Jill and Renee for being successfully prosecuted years ago. The gang’s plan is upset by an elderly man of Asian descent who is attacked by them, yet manages to dispatch them easily. The man, I Ching, has a small device, a mirror in a locket which doesn’t reflect but allows one to see what someone else is seeing. That someone, Lee Travis, former newspaper publisher who disappeared mid 20th century without a trace. The mystery gets Renee to put on her face-covering mask and Jill to don her red mask, leather trench coat and midriff baring top. The two are otherwise known as the Question and the Crimson Avenger.

    "Family Affair"
    •THOMAS REESE BLAKE and his wife LOIS LANE unexpectedly visit their twin boys at Metropolis University. LOUIS and LAYNE are very similar even though not identical: tall, intelligent dark eyes and hair, and handsome features. The problem is that the boys want to go to a fresher party. Ditching loving parents might be difficult for regular teens. Luckily Louis and Layne aren't regular teens. They're SUPERBOY & ROBIN!
    •18 years ago... CATMAN went with SUPERWOMAN to her Earth-2 home, a world eerily similar to his own Earth, and the pair very quickly started their pride. Louis inherited strength, invulnerability, and leaping tall buildings in single bounds from his Amazon mother while Layne's flight, claws, regeneration, and enhanced senses came from both parents.
    •The Sigma Xi Chi fraternity's parties are legendary, and the boys want to attend the first one of the year but their first experience with ΣΞX may be their last.
    •From the 31st Century, the FETISH FIVE strike! Powered by mystic fetishes from an ancient dungeon in what was once called West Hollywood on Earth, the quintet will make the future what they want it to be. For the FF to succeed, the saga of the Super Sons must stop before it truly begins!
    •While Superboy fights for his life against blows from monstrous DOOMSDAY LAD, Robin battles TOY BOY's sybaritic simulacra and the bio-duplicate living weapons named MÉNAGE À TROIS!
    •Loving parents never let their children be endangered... unless the experience will improve the children's strengths and skills. Thomas and Lois were ready to watch until BONDAGE BOY and LEATHER GIRL tried to tie up the couple in magic ropes and chains. Looks like it's time for spankings all around!

    Plotter: CaptCleghorn
    Writer: HOWARD CHAYKIN
    Art: TONY HARRIS
    7SV: “The Black Dahlia”
    January 1947. It’s been nearly a year and a half since the end of WW2 and America is getting back to business. No war, no depression. Life is looking optimistic, except for one murder mutilated and bisected young woman in Los Angeles. Helping out the Los Angeles Police is the Vigilante (secret identity – Greg Saunders), celebrity adventurer with a music career. However what catches the Vigilante’s eye are certain characters with known nazi and Soviet connections. It turns out that the Soviets have a team of agents called Geroi Budushchego, or “Heroes of the Future”. Remaining nazis have put together operatives known as “Kinder von Hitler” or Children of you know who.
    What do the Russians and Germans want? Greg does what he sees as the only possible thing and calls his team, the Seven Soldiers of Victory. Vigilante, cowboy detective, Green Arrow and Speedy, archers extraordinaire, Star-Spangled Kid and Stripsey, America come to life, The Crimson, noir adventurer and his sidekick Wing, and the Shining Knight, time lost knight from King Arthur’s Roundtable. Can three teams solve a grisly homicide or will their own differences bling them to what’s happening in the world around them?

    EARTH-2: VANDAL SAVAGE #1
    Plot by EXCITER
    Written by ALAM MOORE
    Art by DALE KEOWN
    “THE UNDYING ENMITY”
    Earth-2.
    “I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and anyone who meets me may kill me.” Then the Lord said to him, “Not so! Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.” And the Lord put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him.
    - Genesis 4:14-15.

    The first human born. The first murderer. The first king. Cursed to eternal life, his time on Earth has spanned all of human existence. And since he believes God is cruel and won’t protect humanity, he will. His way. Known by many names, he is... Vandal Savage!
    1350.
    Since founding the kingdom of Nod after his banishment from Eden, he’s been chased. The fact that Savage didn’t die frustrated and enraged Death itself, who sporadically bonded to a mortal host in order to assail him. Those hosts ceased to be human and became legendary nightmares. They became... the Black Racer!
    Through sword or sorcery or force of arms, Vandal Savage had fended off the Racer for millennia. This time was different. Vandal “Savauge” had become a ruler in Europe, extending his reach internationally. His hubris invited punishment. The Racer struck indirectly, bringing with it the deadliest plague in human history: the Black Death! Threatening to take the lives of an entire continent, Savage must assemble a party of medieval heroes and strike down the Black Racer in its lair before it’s too late! Or... is it already too late? Has the Racer finally discovered a way to kill him?

    Plot by EXCITER
    Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
    Art by FRANK CHO
    “GODSPEED TO YOU”
    Earth-2. 2021.
    My name is Barry Allen, and I am the fastest man alive! As a young forensic scientist, I performed a routine autopsy on the corpse of an elderly man named Jay Garrick. Unbeknown to me, Jay was a superhero from the golden age, the Flash! Unbeknown to anyone, Jay was also secretly the Roman God, Mercury! The experience left me forever changed and made me the impossible. To the outside world I am an ordinary man, but secretly, guided by Mercury’s ghost, I use my speed to protect humanity from the petty and cruel gods and demigods that would plague mankind with suffering and that still walk among us. I am... the Flash!
    Central City lives up to its name. In the center of a nation of immigrants, the city is a crossroads for people from around the world. And those people often bring their ancient gods with them...
    Case in point: Leonard Snart. An ex-Army Captain last seen at Fort Wainwright in Alaska, Snart disappeared in a blizzard years ago... only to reappear today at Star Labs. His attempt to steal all data on the anti-global warming project nicknamed “Cold Gun” has gone awry - and quickly turned into a hostage situation. This looks like a job for the Flash!
    But when Snart reveals cryokinetic powers capable of slowing down the Flash, it’s clear he’s no normal terrorist! Jay Garrick’s Speed Force Ghost has seen such gifts bestowed before... by an old enemy from antiquity. Snart must have become a high priest of Chione, the goddess of Frost and a remorseless Killer!
    Flash Myth: In Greek mythology, Chione (Ancient Greek: Χιονη Khione from χιών chiōn, "snow") was the daughter of Boreas, the god of the north wind.
    Can the Flash thaw this Captain Cold out before he enacts whatever plan his goddess has concocted? Or is Earth-2 overdue for its next ice age?
    Elsewhere, Chione’s aggressive action begins to embolden other deities to make their presence known...

    GREEN MAGIC MEN”
    Earth-2.
    In eons past, after a seemingly endless war, the mysterious Guardians finally defeated the sorcerous Empire of Tears through great sacrifice - draining all magic from the universe and imprisoning it within the heart of a star. That magic eventually spat out a burning emerald chunk of itself, falling to Earth in the Orient where it was fashioned... into a Lantern! Since then, those who touch metal rings to the Lantern, if possessed of sufficient will, can wield the magic of the green flame! Sworn to use this power for good, a group of caretakers arose. Wizards. Vigilantes. Heroes. They are... the Green Lantern Society!
    1965.
    Operation Rolling Thunder. The USAF’s sustained aerial bombardment campaign against the North Vietnamese. Nobody, and I mean nobody, was better behind the stick of a Douglas A-1 Skyraider than ace pilot Hal Jordan. But not even he was prepared for the Viet Cong to summon Lạc Long Quân, king of dragons! No plane could stand against the flying serpent, and Jordan quickly found himself recovering from a near fatal crash. That’s when his life would forever change thanks to a visit from an old wizard named Alan Scott, a veteran himself. Scott understood that Hal was a rare soul possessed of great will... the kind that would allow him to become a Green Lantern!
    Hal’s first test, however, is not to slay a dragon... but to liberate it! Lạc Long Quân is not acting of his own volition - he’s been enslaved by a group of Viet Cong wielding mystical weapons provided by a malevolent cult called Qward, sorcerers who consider themselves the true heirs of the lost Empire of Tears.
    Can Hal, stepping into a completely foreign world of magic and mysticism, overcome great fear and save both a legendary dragon and his fellow airmen? Moreover, can Hal prove himself a worthy successor to the Green Lantern mantle?

    Metallo-1000, these metallo are made of nano-metallos, they are basically liquid metal,
    Superman and Zod cannot destroy them, and there's something worse about these nano-metallo.
    The Metallo-1000 model was designed to infect human and make them Metallo.
    Superman came prepared, because his Super-Robots are also made of nano-Superbots,
    it's a million micro-Superman vs a million micro-Metallo.
    In the future, 1000 years from now, the universe is ruled by Brainiac-13, every human on Earth is now cybernetic beings controlled by Brainiac,
    Jon Kent and his sister Cir-El, lead the last resistance against Brainiac's science police.
    The resistence were Kryptonian hybrids created by Conner Kent many years ago,
    human-Kryptonian, Amazon-Kryptonian, and even New God-Kryptonians.
    The legends are that a thousand years ago, the Futuresmiths unleashed nano-metallo on to the Earth,
    and these nano-metallo infected every human on Earth, transforming all of humanity into Metallo to fight the Kryptonians.
    But that plan failed when a fragment of Brainiac's mind awakens and takes over all their bodies,and Brainiac-12 was reborn.
    Jon El and Cir-El lead the final charge to steal the information about the rise of Brainiac, where the Futuresmiths build the nano-metallo.
    After an impossible fight, Jon was able to obtain the information and take it back to the Time Trapper.
    "This timeline is over, Brainiac has won, you must take this information to my father, grandmother!"
    And the Time Trapper reveals her face, Lara Lor-Van, the mother of Superman.

    The Outsiders leave their ship as it docks at a small town in the Aleutian Islands - apparently the source of all of the recent disappearances across the Pacific Ocean. Donning heavy winter gear, the Outsiders head for the mountains.
    What they find is a mysterious base seemingly populated by identical prisoners - clones, twins, or what they cannot tell. At least one of each pair matches a missing persons report.
    They stumble upon The Brain and his henchman Monsiuer Mallah, working a machine of nefarious intent. Can they stop the dastardly duo in time?

    THE QUESTION #22

    Plotter: CaptCleghorn
    “And You May Say to Yourself, "My God! What Have I Done?"”
    Brother Eye’s anti-gravity controls have been set to maximum and as a result, the satellite is heading out of orbit in a straight line on a course tangent to its previous orbit into deep space. Meanwhile our fantastic foursome (AOM-NU lawyers strongly advise this term never be used again) need to hit a microscopic window in order to neither bounce off the atmosphere, or burn up upon re-entry. Luckily, Valentina Vostok had managed to steal much of Brother Eye’s data and was able to directly access much (but would it be enough?) of the data to plan a trajectory. Then everything went dark and we had a very powerful solid black page.
    Vic wakes up in a hospital bed, bound to it and unable to leave or even get up. People with featureless masks come in and out, adjusting his IV and asking him questions. But their identities are a secret and Vic has no idea where he is. Or even if he’s dead and this is the test to pass through the pearly gates.

    The Teen Titans return to Titans Tower in San Francisco to find a mysterious package. You see, after the Green Lantern Corp was screwed over by Starro, there's quite a bit of vulnerable space left unattended.
    In an attempt to cover their bases, a lone Guardian has re-activated the Darkstar Program. The chosen hero? One Donna Troy. She asks the group if they'd be willing to head to space - it'll be dangerous, but the Titans have done it before.
    Everyone takes the day to pal around San Francisco and enjoy what could possibly be their last day on Earth. They must make their decision by the end of the day.

    SENSATION COMICS #20
    Written by Vita Ayala
    Plot by H-E-D & EXCITER
    Art by Rod Reis
    WEIGHT OF THE WAVES Part 4 “FORBIDDEN COLORS”
    Diana knows that as Realms of Amazonia, however obscure, Aurania and Venturia hold dangerous prisoners deep within. A war between Amazonia and Atlantis could let those foul beings free.
    But when the underbelly of these territories is revealed to be an Escherian nightmare, warped by the dark influence of Triton and Ma-Enyo, she can’t help but to wonder: are they free already?
    The sight of the corruption convinces Mera of the threat posed by shackled gods — but it’s too late to stop the war! King Shark, reinforced by General Ocina of Venturia, has shed first blood, and lots of it!
    Meanwhile, Aquaman and Kahina are hunted by… the God Lantern Corps?!
    What?
    Kahina’s Seal of Clarity, made from the Graeae’s single eye, can find the answer to any question. As these old teammates take refuge in a desert oasis, the Seer seeks the truth of the enemies that hunt them. Visions of the forbidden truth of the past!
    Eons ago, the Others were betrayed when Jarax and Valari were seduced by the promises of the rebel gods. Garin Mar was slain, his Power Ring pilfered. The traitors were sentenced to share the prisons of their patrons... but, truth is, a god in a cage isn’t so different from a Central Power Battery!
    The Power Ring, reverse engineered and duplicated, proved to be more than capable as a conduit for divinity – and capable of escaping divine prisons. And thus, slowly but surely, have grown the ranks of Triton’s Cerulean Lanterns and Enyo’s Saffron Lanterns.
    Recently, they’ve recently found eager recruits among the disaffected pro-conquest Amazonians. Not to mention the loyal retainers of Venturia’s power hungry Duchess; or as she prefers, Queen Clea! She’s been a large fish in a small pond for too long. In the mad machinations of Enyo and the prospect of War with Amazonia, she sees long awaited opportunity.
    Outmatched by the God Lanterns, Arthur and Kahina are taken to the prisons so that the Seal of Clarity can at least free their gods… but the cult didn’t expect Wonder Woman and Mera to be there already! Can these proud warrior women free their allies and stop the release of the vengeful deities?
    And as Amazonian reinforcements arrive above, does it matter?

    Expensive but rewarding month! Earth-2 event is off to a really fun start, I love the different takes! My pulls:

    AQUAMAN #7 (I’m personally enjoying this colab with H-E-D! Adds a different feel to drafting solicitations!)
    BAT-WING #22 (I hope there’s a running sub-plot of Steve Trevor just getting things completely wrong)
    CRISIS ON EARTH-2 #1 (“Terrific” start to the event!)
    DEADLY HANDS OF CONNOR HAWKE #22 (I loved the original Cold Cut Turkey albums before they went mainstream!)
    THE DEMON OMNIBUS (coming up with rhymes every month for this book was extremely difficult but it’s still one of my favorite runs!)
    DETECTIVE COMICS #15 (the city’s have become so dangerous, you can’t even go out without getting slapped with a fish these days).
    EARTH-2: BAT-WING #1 (oh wait, does Steve Trevor think he’s on Earth-2?!? It all makes sense!)
    EARTH-2: BRAVE AND THE BOLD #1 (of 4) (is it even a top if it doesn’t bare midriff?)
    EARTH-2: SUPERMAN #1 (I give this Book of the Month for going through the back catalogue and bringing back my original character Bru-Al from Justice League Dark! An honor.)
    EARTH-2: THE LONG-BOW HUNTERS #1 (excellent premise, and hell yeah Diggle!)
    EARTH-2: MARTIAN MANHUNTER #1 (MM always struck me as a great western hero name)
    EARTH-2: SAGA OF THE SUPER SONS #1 (lol earning that M rating!)
    EARTH-2: SEVEN SOLDIERS OF VICTORY, “Truel” #1 (Beat those Germans and Russians!)
    EARTH-2: VANDAL SAVAGE #1 (thought this was a cool twist on the VC character, hope you like it)
    THE FLASH #22 *Earth-2 Tie-In* (mythic Flash)
    GREEN LANTERN #22 *Earth-2 Tie-In* (fantasy Lanterns)
    HAWKWOMAN AND HAWKMAN #0 (excellent premise!)
    THE HERO HOTLINE #1 (an auspicious Next Dawn debut! Look forward to seeing how this unfolds, and welcome Atomicskull!)
    HOUSE OF S #3 (nano-tastic!)
    JUSTICE FOR ALL SEASONS #6 (I have to say, this has become one of my favorite books. Extremely fun!)
    OUTSIDERS #19 (we need to enforce those clone labor laws!)
    THE QUESTION #22 (solid black pages always make me feel the power)
    SENSATION COMICS #20 (a twist I didn't see coming!)
    TEEN TITANS #12 (excellent continuity usage!)

    Why does everyone keep questioning Steve Trevor? He's eventually going to be right about something. One day.

    I sit with a Guinness and decide which DC Next Dawn's books to buy this month. Although I know I'm getting them all, it's still nice to think I have some self-control. And then I see another wild crazy linewide crossover and I give myself over to just getting them all. You're all enablers of my habit... err, hobby!

    AQUAMAN #7 (Remember when there were such things as "phone books"? Companies used to call themselves AA and AAA to get listed first. Did Amazonia and Atlantis do this>)
    BAT-WING #22 (spoilers:
    Steve Trevor is really Batwing and going through all this to draw attention away from himself.
    end of spoilers)
    CRISIS ON EARTH-2 #1 (Unlike the other DC, this Crisis will have an ending, right? Am I bitter? Nooooo)
    DEADLY HANDS OF CONNOR HAWKE #22 (I'm not going to have to link or subscribe or follow of like to get updates, am I? Hey, GET OFF MY LAWN!)
    THE DEMON OMNIBUS (Rhyming? This solicit is rhyming? How the &^%& am I supposed to compete?)
    DETECTIVE COMICS #15 (I smell a surfing contest and Bat-Shark Repellent)
    EARTH-2:BAT-WING #1 (I've actually run out of Steve Trevor jokes. )
    EARTH-2: BRAVE AND THE BOLD #1 (of 4) (And the question everyone [well, me anyway] is asking: Are they gonna do it?)
    EARTH-2: SUPERMAN #1 (You had me at Kal-L)
    EARTH-2:THE LONG-BOW HUNTERS #1 (Wait, Earth 2 isn't a wonderland of Golden Age goodness?)
    EARTH-2: MARTIAN MANHUNTER #1 (Despero sounds Mexican. I'm actually surprised someone actually reworked this epic tale as a superhero story.)
    EARTH-2: SAGA OF THE SUPER SONS #1 (My vote for Book of the Month. Do I need a safeword to read it?)
    EARTH-2: SEVEN SOLDIERS OF VICTORY, “Truel” #1 (of 7) (But this looks just like our 1947! UM, yeah, but stuff happene worthy of comic bookery. Read it, please.)
    EARTH-2: VANDAL SAVAGE #1 ("Why don't you just shoot him?" Black Racer: "I have an even better idea. I'm going to place Vandal Savage in an easily escapable situation involving an overly elaborate and exotic death.")
    THE FLASH #22 *Earth-2 Tie-In* (Flash fact: At absolute zero, all motion stops.)
    GREEN LANTERN #22 *Earth-2 Tie-In* (Are Alan and Hal part of the branch of the service? Because that could be an area of conflict.)
    HAWKWOMAN AND HAWKMAN #0 (I wonder, do Katar and Shayera play good cop bad cop with their daughter?)
    THE HERO HOTLINE #1 (Good start to a promising series. How does Dodds pay anyway?)
    HOUSE OF S#3 (Amazon-Kryptonian? Sounds good to me.)
    JUSTICE FOR ALL SEASONS #6 (So Ice made them all chill out. Sounds good.)
    OUTSIDERS #19 (How'd the Outsiders fall into trouble in Alaskan waters? they couldn't keep their bearings straight.)
    THE QUESTION #22 (Seriously? Pulling an introspective sing;le plot over an entire issue? Where's Wesley?)
    SENSATION COMICS #20 (This is getting very interesting with the two civilizations long storied histories. )
    TEEN TITANS #12 (Do teenage curfews still apply deep in space when Earth days aren't applicable anymore?)
    Why yes, I do enjoy hearing myself talk. it is very kind of you to notice>

    When I first had the idea for the series, I was like "ohh, I'll do the entire solicitation in rhyme and it will be cool and different." How foolish I was to think that would be easy lol.
