This is going to be a big month for DC fans. First, 52 is over and the fallout can begin. Remember that strange image DC sent us a couple of weeks ago that hinted at the future of the DCU? Did you notice Batman was wearing some strange pirate/Arabic costume? Batman #666 looks like it reveals the tie between that mysterious DC image and the Bat. Also, check out the JSA/JLA crossover titles that were the hallmark of the Multiple Earth series from days of old. Second, May will be a month of direct figures from DC Unlimited including the new World of Warcraft action figures and the first wave of Afro Samurai action figures. Major Spoilers has the images and more in this month’s solicitations from DC Comics.

Don’t forget to click the thumbnails to see the covers in all their glory.
