Up first in DC news, Geoff Johns has announced DC’s next massive event, “Doomsday Clock.” Johns will return to write the assumed finale of DC Rebirth, which will see Superman go head to head with Dr. Manhattan. The long awaited series follows the events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH and THE BUTTON.

Elsewhere, we’ve got the exciting announcement of the first annual Wonder Woman Day, to commemorate the release of the Wonder Woman movie on June 3rd! Free copies of WONDER WOMAN #1 will be available at comic book stores around the country to commemorate the day.

Meanwhile, BATMAN writer Tom King is preparing to launch a 12-issue series starring Mister Miracle. The new story of the famed escape artist will be inspired by Tom King’s own near death experience.

Marvel news is a bit sadder this week, with the cancellation announcement of BLACK PANTHER AND THE CREW. The series was struggling in sales despite critical and fan approval. Marvel is allowing the series to finish its first 6-issue arc before it ends its abbreviated run.
