Solstice: ACHIEVED. Now we’ve got three months of awesome comics before the autumnal equinox. Here are some things we’re looking forward to…
The deluxe hardcover collection of Greg Rucka and J.H. Williams III’s remarkable serial. (Look for an interview with Williams here next week!)
Wonder Woman #600
Gail Simone says goodbye, J. Michael Straczynski says hi, and Geoff Johns and George Pérez drop by.
Sometime in July:
The Wild Kingdom
Kevin Huizenga’s spectacular, nearly (but not quite) free-associative Glenn Ganges story, which appeared in its initial form in Or Else.

Batman: Odyssey #1
Neal Adams returns to Batman in this long-awaited miniseries.
Blackest Night, Blackest Night: Green Lantern and Blackest Night: Green Lantern Corps
The core titles of Geoff Johns and company’s best-selling sci-fi superhero zombie crossover epic, all collected in hardcover. (Four more collections later in the month wrap up the tie-in miniseries and a few other significant issues.)
The return of Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá and Fabio Moon’s career-making series, now in color and with extra material.
A new creator-owned series by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev.
Judge Death: Death Lives!
An American edition of some kick-ass early Judge Dredd stories, many of them drawn by Brian Bolland.
I don’t know much about this Eddie Campbell/Daren White collaboration about a lonely man’s sex life, but everything Campbell draws is worth looking at.
Matt Kindt’s original graphic novel about a man caught between two worlds looks pretty promising.
Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour
Yes, the sixth and final volume of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s fantastic series will be in comics stores on a Tuesday. Monday at midnight, in some cases.

Amazing Spider-Man #638
Just in time for Comic-Con, Joe Quesada and Paolo Rivera’s long-anticipated “One Moment In Time” storyline begins, with a backup by Stan Lee and Marcos Martin.
B.P.R.D. Vol. 13: 1947
Anything Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba draw is worth a look.
DC Universe Legacies #3
Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez doesn’t draw a lot of comics these days, but he and Dave Gibbons are doing this issue and the next of this Len Wein-written miniseries. Which means they’ll be gorgeous.
Werewolves of Montpellier
It’s a new graphic novel by the Scandinavian artist Jason. It has werewolves in it. It is, as usual, hilarious.
Ex Machina #50
The conclusion of Brian K. Vaughan and Tony Harris’s political superhero thriller.
