    Default DC Next Dawn - June Solicits!




    We present to you DC Next Dawn, a collection of all new fan-made issues on “sale” this month, JUNE 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 #8
    Plot by EXCITER & H-E-D
    Written by GEOFF JOHNS
    Art by JIM LEE
    “AMAZONIA-ATLANTIS: WEIGHT OF THE WAVES” part five “TONIGHT THERE’S GONNA BE A JAILBREAK”
    Now.
    Atlantis versus Amazonia! War wages on the sea above Xebel. With Amazon reinforcements appearing, will King Orm have no choice but to... release the Kraken?
    Or can an unlikely hero, Crablad, deescalate the situation?
    Then.
    Eight Others embarked upon their quest, only three returned. The Atlantean sorcerer Arion, the Amazonian kanga-rider Exposta, and the cursed human Claw the Unconquered emerged as heroes, having imprisoned the mad gods Triton and Enyo. Their fellows, Palardan, Killaristos, and the Green Lantern Garin Mar, were slain. Worse still, two of their number were betrayers: tide priestess Jarax and the archer Valari. Their shame would be hidden from history, as the survivors chose to omit that detail after imprisoning them with their masters. Arion, however, would never forget - and, with his magic, he ensured a few others never would either...
    Now.
    The Cerulean Lanterns of Triton and the Saffron Lanterns of Enyo gained the might of their Olympian benefactors... but also fell under their mental influence. How far has this cult’s corruption spread through both Amazonia and Atlantis? Too far. And they’ve been preparing for this day for a long, long time....
    It’s Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Mera and Kahina in a creepy subterranean prison against an ancient cult that uses bootleg power rings amped up by divine energy from two insane Greek gods! In the chaos, not even the quasi-Justice League is fast enough to stop Jarax from using the Seal of Clarity to open the prisons...
    After millennia, the God of the Depths and the Goddess of Bloodlust are free! Will the oceans run red?
    Opening their cells, however, triggered Arion’s long dormant spell - a summoning of Others! The spirits of Arion, Claw, Exposta and her kanga Jumperoo, Palardan the man-of-war, General Killaristos, and Garin Mar arrive to aid the heroes in their time of need! Can the ethereal, original Others and the loosely aligned new Others together confront the existential threat before them?

    CRISIS ON EARTH-2 #2
    Plotted by randomideaguy
    Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
    Art by STEVE RUDE
    Bruce Wayne of Earth-0 finds himself mysteriously warped to another world entirely : Earth-2! President Preston Rickards has tasked one of his top scientists (Natasha Irons) with establishing contact between the two worlds. Well, if these people would kindly let him return to Earth-0, Bruce could introduce Natasha to the Earth-0 scientist Karen Beecher and establish a cross-dimensional brain trust that could sort all of this out.
    In the meantime, it's exciting and heartbreaking for our Earth-0 Bruce Wayne to go to dinner and the movies with his (living) Earth-2 parents. Earth-2 seems pretty nice. Does this mean Earth-0 is the "bad Earth"? Well, lets not dig too deep in that hole. I doubt we will like what we find. A welcome respite before he and Natasha return to Earth-0 - just moments after he had been warped away.

    DETECTIVE COMICS #16 *Earth-2 tie-in*
    Plot by EXCITER
    Written by MARK MILLAR
    Art by JOHN ROMITA, JR.
    “ANOTHER WORLDLY DEVICE”
    Bruce’s interrogation of “the Joker” reveals seemingly intense delusion... or does it? The Clown Prince of Crime’s diabolical scheme was to trick Batman into a “boner” while trapping Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a giant cream pie. He thinks it’s 1942. Is he literally from another world?
    Following the Joker’s trail back to an abandoned warehouse in Gotham, Batman is attacked... by Batman? This imposter feels as anachronistic as the Joker, though in the opposite direction. An advanced suit of armor with glider wings, thruster boots, and who knows what else. The fight ends when “Batman” recognizes Batman. “Bruce?”
    Apparently, in another dimension, (Earth-2), Bruce Wayne lived and began his crime fighting career in 1939. As he aged, others took on the mantle while an older Bruce supervised from afar. In the year 2021, the cowl rests with Terry McGinnis, a handpicked successor. But why is he on this Earth?
    Apparently, the Earth-2 Joker has a legacy too. His heirs are also in this universe, having travelled through a time-space device somehow first uncovered by the same Joker that Bruce has in custody. But who are the heirs of this Joker? What are they doing on Earth-0? And was capturing the original Earth-2 Joker all part of their plan, making it Batman’s biggest boner of all?

    Writing & Art by MIKE MIGNOLA
    “INTO THE DEEP”
    Earth-2. 1941.
    Arthur Curry is an all-star water polo center at Hudson University. Little does he know, he’s also a very distant descendant of King Atlan - the one-time ruler of the lost Kingdom of Atlantis! The amphibious Atlanteans were possessed of fabulous, advanced technology. Long ago, prior to the last Ice Age, they left Earth in search of a new, more hospitable home amongst the stars. Now, however, their cosmic Kingdom is imperiled - and prophecy foretells that only the heir of Atlan can save them!
    Aboard a spaceship that more resembles a whale, Arthur Curry is taken to the seven worlds of the Constellation Aquarius! Yet these stunning vistas and strange new worlds bring danger in myriad forms!
    The current King - Orm - believes himself to be the rightful heir of Atlan and has no need for a pathetic old-worlder like Curry!
    Nanaue, of the shark-like Carcharodon race, sees him as a threat!
    And the mind-controlling Starro lurks just beyond the farthest planet, assembling a legion of starfish to descend upon Atlantis!
    Against these impossible odds, all Arthur’s got is a space-seahorse named Storm, a trident that shoots lasers, and a beautiful redhead named Mera assigned as his bodyguard - so lets save the universe!

    Detective Renee Montoya managed to get herself and the other occupants out of her building when it was torched by the drug gang last issue. The GCFD did a fine job.

But while the Question is on the warpath, her ally Jill Carlyle, the Crimson Avenger has seemingly forgotten all about the gang situation and has monopolized her time with the mysterious I Ching and the mirror that shows what the missing for decades Lee Travis sees.
    As a special added bonus, we see the origins of our heroes as Renee searches for a spare Pseudoderm mask and the origins of the Crimson Avenger as Jill and I Ching discuss Lee Travis.

    Plot by EXCITER
    Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN

    “CAT SCRATCH SPEEDSTER”
    Earth-2. 2021.
    The God of Speed, Mercury, died. His powers passed on to forensic scientist Barry Allen. But the one murder Barry never thought to investigate... was Mercury’s. Until now.
    After defeating the high priest of Chione, killer Goddess of Frost, Barry begins to suspect a cross-pantheon conspiracy at work that may have also been responsible for slaying his speedy benefactor!
    Flash myth: Mafdet (also Mefdet, Maftet) was a goddess in the ancient Egyptian religion. Depicted as having the skin of a Cheetah, Mafdet was the deification of capital punishment.
    Fast as hell, the Cheetah-looking goddess Mafdet is a retributive executioner - kind of like a divine bounty hunter who always brings ‘em back DOA. As enemies of the Egyptian Mafia in Central City start turning up dead - and partially chewed - it appears that prayers for vengeance are being answered. Can the Flash stop these killings and find out why gods are coming out of the woodwork?
    Usually he’d ask the ghost of Mercury, but he’s gone incommunicado. Is he just busy running circles in the Elysium afterlife, or something more nefarious? Is he unable to manifest on Earth... or unwilling?

    “The House that Lara built”
    Brainiac's evil has been vanquished!
    As the millions of nano-Super-Bots defeat the millions of nano-Metallo,
    their program also invade the system of Brainiac's ship, destroying the consciousness of Brainaic-12.
    Superman and Zod emerge from the Phantom-Zone victorious, the scientists of Futuresmiths taken prisoners.
    Jor-El smiles as he walks into a secret chamber to inform his wife, Lara Lor-Van.
    For over thirty years, Lara has planned for this.
    When Krypton exploded, Lara was sent through time, and she has been trapped in time, the Time Trapper.
    The Eradicator of Krypton was re-designed by Lara so that it can collect the genetic material of Kryptonians before Krypton falls,
    The Phantom Zone projector was re-designed by Jor-El so that it can also collect lost souls of Kryptonians when they die.
    New Krypton is a plan in the making for many years.
    When Jor-El was resurrected with the mind crystal and his genetic material,
    he reclaims control of Eradicator and Phantom Zone projector so he may restore all minds back into their bodies,
    even the tiny people of Kandor can be restored into cloned bodies at their proper size.
    As Lara has been the Time-Trapper for many more years, she has traveled many timelines,
    fought the Legion of Superheroes, witnessed the end of time, and survived so many Crisis.
    Every-time, she takes the information collected from the last timeline,
    and she prepare for a better new timeline,
    when Jon and Cir-El were defeated in the last timeline, they gathered enough information
    enough to destroy Brainiac-12 before his birth in this new timeline.
    This timeline is the one She has been searching for, and they are victorious.
    Jor-El believes this is the time for celebration,
    but Lara knows this is not the final victory, as each change to timeline lead to another.
    Nano-Metallos are free of Brainiac's control and begin to build a kingdom of their own inside the Phantom Zone.
    Kryptonites in Lex Luthor's labs begin to move as these Kryptonites become sentient and a new type of Kryptonite Men is born.
    And Cir-El is sent through time back to the House of S with a piece of Brainiac's consciousness in her body?

    Our two Mr. Terrifics arrive in the Aleutians and meet another gang of Earth-0 superheroes: the Outsiders! It's a good thing they got here, too. While the Outsiders were close to defeating the Brain and Monsieur Mallah (two Earth-0) villains, they have now teamed up with several Earth-2 villains to form the Brotherhood of Evil. Their goal? To bring two worlds to their knees.
    They have been testing for months trying to connect the two worlds - hence the litany of prisoners here that the Outsiders initially assumed to be clones of some sort. For their part, the Outsiders are welcome to the extra hero help, considering there's extra bad guys running about now. What did they stumble into, anyways?

    “Do You Know Where You're Going To?”
    Vic has found himself being held in a secure hospital room run by Edward Thriller. If you read last issue, you saw his incredible escape into the night.

However, being unconscious during the crash inhibited Vic’s ability to gather details.
    Luckily only a couple of days had passed and Vic was able to get back into his life. See Vic actual squelch a conspiracy theorist about a mind controlling satellite on air. But while the satellite remains a generally suspect urban myth, the Illuminati have sent Lorelei Circe, the Siren to investigate the situation. The Aquarius Corporation uses their personal cyborg Ronin, Billy Challas to defend their right to secrecy.
    Despite both Merry Pemberton, the Girl with a Googleplex of Gimmicks and Lee Travis, the Crimson being located by Vic, Valentina Vostok is among the missing.
    And Wesley Fermin is a debate master, rising to lead the polls in the governor’s race with the election only a few weeks off. And Myra is positive that the candidate is not her husband after she finally allowed him back into her bed.

    SENSATION COMICS #21
    Writer: Vita Ayala
    Plot: H-E-D & EXCITER
    Art: Rod Reis
    WEIGHT OF THE WAVES PART 6: TOWARDS THE EYE OF THE STORM
    The forgotten gods cut a bloody swath through the forces of Amazonia and Atlantis, but for the moment, there is peace. Or at least something resembling it. The Others, Old and New, are left to ponder their failure.
    Enyo and Triton are on the warpath towards Olympus, bent on finishing what they started so long ago. Their Lanterns followed them. The armies of Amazonia and Atlantis meant nothing to them; they simply left the battlefield behind.
    Even Orm cannot dismiss their threat, much as General Ocina, de facto leader of Venturia now that the treacherous Queen Clea has absconded, might urge him to press the advantage against the Amazonians.
    Following the truly virtuoso diplomatic appeal of the young Crablab, King Orm declares a ceasefire and calls for a summit between the leaders of both nations, to be held on a glacier in the North Atlantic.
    The Fenris Glacier Summit promises to bring Amazonia and Atlantis together to solve the problem they unwittingly caused... or to push them even further apart. Crablab will need to be on his A-game.
    Meanwhile, the Others know that a head to head confrontation with Enyo and Triton is likely to end in failure. Kahina comes up with a promising, if risky, gambit.
    What better way to confront Enyo... than with the advice of her sisters. Deino and Pemphredo have long become accustomed to the Graeae being a duo. They offer secret knowledge to aid in defeating their rogue sister. All they ask for in exchange is the return of their eye, which happens to be the Seal of Clarity.
    Jarax absconded with the Eye when the dark gods departed.
    Diana stands ready to travel by Starlight, to the Saffron Warcamp at the base of the very real Mount Olympus, and bring Arthur, Mera and the other Others along. But can the Graeae really be trusted to betray their Sister?

    TEEN TITANS #13
    Plotted by randomideaguy
    Written by FELICIA HENDERSON
    Art by FIONA STAPLES
    It's the start of a brand new era for our band of teenage heroes! Donna Troy leads the team into space on their very first mission assisting the Guardians of Oa restore peace to the galaxy. Their first target is a short trip to Alpha Centauri where the Martian villain Malefic has been sending out a psychic call to assemble an army of evil aliens to finally destroy that pesky Earth.
    There's certainly a lot of new problems to conquer for our Titans as only two of them can breathe unassisted in space. Something as simple as a tear in a space suit can spell death. And that's before we consider the danger of sending hormonal teenagers against a mind reading psychopath.
    Donna is experienced in handling stuff like this, but can she coach her team into navigating these challenges? Or perhaps their weakness (intense feelings) might be the key to toppling this psychic villain?

    Quite an excellent month. My pulls:

    AQUAMAN #8 (heading into the close of this big crossover!)
    BAT-WING #23 (Steve Trevor ALWAYS gets the benefits)
    CRISIS ON EARTH-2 #2 (let’s say Detective #16 was a prequel to this)
    DEADLY HANDS OF CONNOR HAWKE #23 (smashed that like button and subscribed)
    DETECTIVE COMICS #16 *Earth-2 tie-in* (I took a high-brow approach to drafting this one, as you can tell)
    EARTH-2: ARTHUR CURRY OF ATLANTIS (made this one with extra pulp)
    EARTH-2: BAT-WING #2 (Steve’s worth whatever consulting fee the Congo is paying)
    Earth 2: BRAVE AND THE BOLD, “Law and Order” #2 (GCFD are the real heroes)
    EARTH-2: THE HAUNTED TANK (more than meets the eye)
    EARTH-2: THE LONG-BOW HUNTERS #2 (not Bruce! He’s old and uses his billions for good!)
    EARTH-2: SAGA OF THE SUPER SONS #2 (M+ love triangle!)
    Earth 2: SEVEN SOLDIERS OF VICTORY, “Truel” #2 (Jackie will save the day!)
    Earth 2: SEVEN SOLDIERS OF VICTORY, “Truel” #3 (you can ALWAYS count on Lee Travis)
    EARTH-2: SUPERMAN #2 (Bru-Al \m/ - love this premise)
    THE FLASH #23 *Earth-2 Tie-In*
    GREEN LANTERN #23 *Earth-2 Tie-In*
    HAWKWOMAN AND HAWKMAN #1 (interesting legal loophole! Can’t prosecute a ghost)
    HOUSE OF S #4 (whoa Lara was the Time Trapper? Twist!)
    JUSTICE FOR ALL SEASONS #7 (oh man! There’s at least 31 flavors! This is my favorite book!)
    OUTSIDERS #20 *Earth-2 Tie In* (double trouble)
    THE QUESTION #23 (Myra REALLY gets into the investigation)
    TEEN TITANS #13 (never read a teenager’s mind…)

    My review of Justice For All Seasons #7:

    Do you know the Ice-Cream Man? The Ice-Cream Man? The Ice-Cream Man!

    It looks like Earth is headed for a Rocky Road with the attack of the Ice-Creamonites! I would have liked to have heard more about the African Ice Cream man but I guess the heat was on. I heard the Canadian Ice Cream got captured because he left Moose Tracks but I guess that's how the Cookies and Cream crumbles. I don't know if the JL can hand the Ice-Cream man because the team is a little too Vanilla. What can the League do to handle such pint-sized foes?
    I think a lack of vision and cones could have been a threat to this story but the plot didn't waffle. There were sprinkles here and there that kept the story from melting away.

    I give it two scoops up.
