[New to DCUI Book Club] June 8th 2021 Curated Selection
The [New to DCUI Book Club] presents: a curated selection of what to consider reading from this week’s new releases on DC Universe Infinite!
Six months ago the Death Metal epic had just wound down, and that December the eight part “Endless Winter” crossover event started up!
We’ll be covering all 8 issues of that storyline starting this week with: Justice League: Endless Winter #1 (Chapter 1 of 8) DC UNIVERSE INFINITE (12/1/20)
We are also featuring this week two or three of the Batman titles as they lead directly to Future State and, later, Infinite Frontier or are already part of it:
The Next Batman: Second Son #1 DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
and #2 DC UNIVERSE INFINITE Meet Tim “Jace” Fox, estranged son of billionaire Lucius Fox and man of mystery…what has the eldest son of one Gotham’s premiere families been up to for these ‘missing’ years and how does he find himself getting shot at in the jungles of Vietnam?
Batman #104 (Ghost Maker) DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
This is a major new hero in the Batman universe, so jump on now as things get set up! Be sure to check out the first appearance of Ghost Maker in Batman #100 along with issues #101-103 to learn more about the connection between Bruce Wayne and Ghost Maker if you find Ghost Maker a compelling new character.
And…from where we left off a few months ago, let’s continue to enjoy two widely-acclaimed titles, one of which ties in to the new Green Lantern title!
Far Sector #9 DC UNIVERSE INFINITE Jo’s investigation into the conspiracy at the heart of the City Enduring takes her to Platform Solid Ground, an alien farmland where most of the City’s food comes from. Now one of the stars of the current Green Lantern series too!
Strange Adventures #7 DC UNIVERSE INFINITE Adam Strange was right! The the Pykkts have come to Earth, and they plan to claim the planet as their own!
If you didn’t already, be sure to find DC Nation Presents DC: Future State DC UNIVERSE INFINITE from last week!
Much of what will be suggested here the next several weeks is to prepare us all for the upcoming Future State and Infinite Frontier on DC!
There are one or two others from last week we’ll highlight later this month when their next issue arrives on DCUI, but one other for now you want to review from last week is: The Other History of the DC Universe #1 DC UNIVERSE INFINITE
This first issue features the story of Jefferson Pierce, the man who will one day become Black Lightning, as he makes his way from being a young track star to a teacher and, ultimately, to his role as a hero.
