DC Comics reveals July schedule: ‘The Joker War’, ‘Strange Adventures’, ‘Death Metal’ and more

DC Comics is releasing some big-ticket books later this summer.

I’d be lying if I said DC Comics didn’t completely blow me away with their June release schedule. I said as much on the AIPT Comics Podcast when I said it’s almost a shock to see how many comics are coming out each week, too. It’s like the pandemic will be long behind us by then, but then DC revealed their July schedule and I’m even more in love with the publisher.

The schedule includes some big-ticket items like the beginning of “The Joker War” storyline kicking off in Batman #95 (plus a few tie-in issues coming out too), Joker gets even more love from Kami Garci in a special profiles one-shot, and Death Metal continues with issue #2 which was originally set for a June 10th release. Tom King, Mitch Gerads, and Doc Shaner’s much-discussed Strange Adventures continues as well with issue #3.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Possibly the most shocking element of the schedule is how new comic book day continues to be Tuesday for DC Comics. How this will change customer behavior remains to be seen–all other publishers will go back to a Wednesday release schedule–and without a doubt it makes the DC Comics feel a bit more special. Only time will tell if this Tuesday schedule change will continue.

Read below for the complete schedule which includes four new comic book day releases in July.
