Steel and Penguin's new "Dawn of DC" series begin, a Titan gets murdered, Wonder Woman and Flash celebrate milestone issues and more in DC Comics' solicitations for June 2023.

The publisher's yearlong "Dawn of DC" storytelling initiative continues in full swing throughout June with new series like Steelworks and The Penguin. The former is written by Star Trek and Superman: The Animated Series' Michael Dorn and follows John Henry Irons/Steel and his niece Natasha as they try to bring Metropolis into a new age. Tom King, Stefano Gaudiano and Scorpio Steele's The Penguin, meanwhile, picks back up with Oswald Cobblepot after his recent "death" in Chip Zdarsky and Jorge Jiménez's Batman run.

Elsewhere, the second issue of Tom Taylor and Nicola Scott's new Titans series is teasing a major death. The solicitation teases the Titans are about to find "one of their own" dead while Scott's cover shows Nightwing, Starfire, Cyborg and Donna Troy all kneeling all over a body, meaning either Beast Boy, Flash or Raven could be on the chopping block.

Wonder Woman and the Flash are also both celebrating their 800th issue milestones in June. Each oversized anniversary issue comes from a bevy of artists and writers who previously worked on the character's respective titles, including Mark Waid, Geoff Johns, Scott Kolins and more for The Flash and Becky Cloonan, Joelle Jones, Todd Nauck and more for Wonder Woman. Additionally, both issues will begin to setting the stage for Diana Prince and Wally West's upcoming "Dawn of DC" reboots.

  • Demon club the King of Pain offers the Corinthian a chance to indulge his most murderous tendencies, and the walking nightmare finds himself ravenous after years of guarded restraint. And though the first taste is free, what starts as a snack quickly escalates to a feast, and there will no doubt be hell to pay. Are the club’s offerings enough to keep the Corinthian satisfied? Or will blood spill across the streets of San Francisco just as the immortal witch Thessaly enters the fray, seeking to satiate a hunger of her own?

In the Hugo Award-winning prequel series The Sandman: Overture, illustrated by J.H. Williams III, Gaiman returns to the Sandman Universe after a 17-year break to spin a tale in which Morpheus must save the universe from a rogue star. The comic book version of The Sandman: The Dream Hunters adapts the Dream Hunters prose novel into a lush four-part miniseries drawn by P. Craig Russell. And in The Sandman Universe, plotted by Gaiman, writers Simon Spurrier, Kat Howard, Nalo Hopkinson, and Dan Watters expand upon the characters and worlds Gaiman created for a new generation of readers.
