The Flash better pack his bags, because Barry Allen is heading to one of DC’s most dangerous tropical destinations, Corto Maltese. As revealed in DC’s January solicitations, Barry Allen will head to the fictional island to stop the super-strong Powerhouse from overthrowing the country’s oppressive government in an upcoming storyline in The Flash.
The Flash’s trip to Corto Maltese comes in the middle of “Force Quest,” where he’s trying to unlock the secrets of the newly-revealed Strength Force and untangle its history with the Speed Force. Starting in The Flash #60 and continuing into The Flash #61, Barry’s quest for discovery will take put him on a crash course with Powerhouse, a young Strength Force user who’s trying to topple her country’s corrupt government.RELATED: The Flash: The Strength and Sage Force Explained
Since Frank Miller introduced Corto Maltese in The Dark Knight Returns #3, the tiny fictional island has been a hotbed of geopolitical activity. In that iconic tale, the U.S. government sent Superman to stop a band of Soviet Union-funded rebels before the situation boiled over. After Superman saved the island from nuclear destruction, Corto Maltese, which is named after Hugo Pratt’s famous European comic book adventurer, was folded into the background of the main DC Universe.
Corto Maltese has also been predominantly featured in several live-action DC productions. The island has had a fairly prominent role in the Arrowverse, where it’s been used as a training ground and linked to a few major villains. In Tim Burton’s Batman, Kim Basinger’s Vicki Vale documented a violent rebel uprising on the island, and her photography work caught the eye of Jack Nicholson’s Joker. In Smallville, Tom Welling’s Superman had his first Justice League mission on the island.RELATED: The Flash Introduces a New Strength Force User The Flash #60 is written by Joshua Williamson with art by Rafa Sandoval and Jordi Tarragona and is on sale Dec. 12.

It’s not every day that a new comic book character instantly becomes a fan-favorite. And yet, such was exactly the case for The Batman Who Laughs, a villainous and frightening character that made his comic debut last year in writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo’s Dark Nights: Metal event series.
The Batman Who Laughs was introduced as one of the main villains in the Batman-centric event. Hailing from the Dark Multiverse, this twisted, evil version of Batman was a Bruce Wayne who was infected with a special concoction of the Joker’s laughing gas to become a mixture of both the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime. He is a murderous and grinning genius who keeps ravenous Robins on a leash. The character’s unique, demented look and his crazed and sinister antics made him an instant fan-favorite that managed to outlive the miniseries that introduced him.
A few statues of the character have already been announced or released, and now the popular toy collectible manufacturing giant Funko is joining in on the fun. The company has unveiled a new Pop! vinyl figure based on The Batman Who Laughs, a figure that is sure to add a bit of fright to your Batman display.RELATED: DC Reveals the Name of Batman Who Laughs’ Bat-Punisher Sidekick
The Pop! figure of The Batman Who Laughs is highly-detailed, and shows off the pale skin and nefarious grin of the character. The costume is lifted straight from the comics, from the caped coat to the spiked visor. However, there are no chained Robins to accompany this figure — but that doesn’t mean that a future deluxe exclusive will not include the terrifying Boy Wonders. The collectible is a PX Previews exclusive, and it’s up for pre-order now, with an expected release date of Janurary 2019.RELATED: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Gets Its Own Funko Line
Although other evil Batmen were introduced in Dark Nights: Metal, The Batman Who Laughs is the only  one of the bunch who has made comic book appearances beyond the event series. The villain has already appeared in writer Scott Snyder’s Justice League series, where he has now joined Lex Luthor as a member of the Legion of Doom. On top of that, Snyder will pen a Batman Who Laughs solo miniseries, which will be illustrated by frequent collaborator and superstar artist Jock. Not much is known about the series itself, but it’s set to introduce another evil version of Batman, a lethal, Punisher-inspired character called the Grim Knight.

It looks as though the current iteration of DC’s Suicide Squad will be going on one last mission together, as the fan favorite team’s current book will be coming to an end with a special extra-sized anniversary issue in January.
One of the inaugural titles in DC’s Rebirth initiative, the current Suicide Squad series has been written by writer Rob Williams, and featured a line-up based on 2016’s film. As with previous incarnations of the group, the series featured a group of incarcerated villains and anti-heroes performing black ops missions for the U.S. government in exchange for pardons for their crimes, under the leadership of Rick Flag, and the watchful eye of the morally ambiguous Amanda Waller.RELATED: Young Justice Solicit Offers An Intriguing Clue About Superboy’s Return

The sequel to artist and writer Sean Gordon Murphy’s acclaimed Batman limited series Batman: White Knight, Batman: The Curse of The White Knight, is set to hit shelves next year and will pit the Joker against the Avenging Assassin himself, Azrael. In the meantime, Murphy, with help from a friend of his, has given fans a glimpse of what the story may feature in the form of an 8-bit trailer.
Uploaded on Murphy’s Twitter account, the trailer opens with the image of a sword embedded in the ground, as a shadowy figure approaches it. The figure, later revealed to be Azrael, lifts and swings the sword, which then lights on fire. The camera then moves to reveal the hand of the Joker, holding a Batarang, before the video cuts the comic’s title logo, with the words “Coming 2019” flashing beneath it. To add the mood of the video, the sound of what may be an 8-bit version of the classic Danny Elfman Batman theme fills the air.

THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE #1
written by JOHN RIDLEY
art and cover by ALEX DOS DIAZ
variant cover by TB
Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) examines the mythology of the DC Universe in this compelling new miniseries that reframes iconic moments of DC history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups.
This unique new series presents its story as prose by Ridley married with beautifully realized color illustrations from a selection of exciting illustrators and comics artists. Alex Dos Diaz provides art for #1, which follows 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.
Future issues focus on characters such as Karen and Mal Duncan, Tatsu Yamashiro and Renee Montoya.
Extensively researched and masterfully executed, THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE promises to be an experience unlike any other. You may think you know the history of the DC Universe…but the truth is far more complex. THE OTHER HISTORY OF THE DC UNIVERSE isn’t about saving the world—it’s about having the strength to simply be who you are.

SUPERMAN 100-PAGE SUPER-SPECTACULAR #1
written by MARV WOLFMAN
art and cover by CLAUDIO CASTELLINI
“This is the best Superman story I’ve ever written.” So says living legend Marv Wolfman, and when you’ve written hundreds of Superman stories as he has, it means a great deal. This gem of a tale—written and drawn from 2006-2009 for the SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL series—explodes from the DC archives as a triumphant tale of Clark Kent’s fateful first days in Metropolis, which were far from easy. His early failures almost ensured there would never be a hero called Superman. Powerful writing and stunning art combine to conjure an inspiring story that needed to be published, one you will never forget, from a pair of master storytellers.

The first details about John Ridley’s upcoming DC Black Label comic, The Other History of the DC Universe, have been released online by DC Comics.
Ridley, who previously wrote The American Way for Vertigo and the Academy Award-winning 12 Years a Slave, will pen The Other History of the DC Universe as a part of the DC Black Label imprint. The imprint was established earlier this year as a place where creators had creative freedom to tell self-contained, mature stories. Although it garnered controversy with the first title under the banner (Batman: Damned), the next Black Label book is still scheduled to be released early next year.RELATED: DC Wishes Batman: Damned Nudity Had Never Happened

The solicitation also reveals that the series will run for five issues, and that each issue will focus on different characters. These include Renee Montoya, Katana, Bumblebee and Herald.The Other History of the DC Universe is scheduled to be released Jan. 30, 2019. Check out the cover art below.

Ahead of the launch of the highly anticipated comic book series this November, BOOM! Studios has provided a brand new look at Firefly #1, by Greg Pak and Dan McDaid.
“Mal has always been classified as a lovable rogue,” BOOM! Studios executive editor Jeanine Schaefer said in a statement. “But in revealing his past, we’re able to really dissect that, to accept him at his worst as well as his best. Greg and Dan are crafting a story that really springs out of what made the show great: that these characters are complex and flawed, and that their faults make them as much of who they are as their strengths. The war wasn’t kind to Mal, but neither was he kind in it, and it’s going to inform how his crew — and the reader — see him.”RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Mal is Still Too Pretty in Sienkiewicz’s Firefly #1 Variant
BOOM! Studios’ Firefly #1 marks the long-awaited return of the crew of the Serenity from the television series Firefly. Firefly, created by Joss Whedon, aired for only one season on Fox from Sept. 20 until Dec. 20 in 2002 but has since gained a massive fan following. A follow-up film, Serenity, was released in 2005.
The upcoming comic series, written by Greg Pak (World War Hulk, Mech Cadet Yu) with art by Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd), will again focus on Mal Reynolds, captain of the Serenity. When a mission goes wrong, Mal finds that his past has caught up with him and a new breed of Alliance terror, the Unificators, are hot on his tail. Whedon serves as a story consultant on the series.
Firefly #1, by Greg Pak and Dan McDaid, goes on sale Nov. 14 from BOOM! Studios.
