Last week, we went over a handful of Marvel’s releases for the month of July. This week, it’s DC’s turn.
And DC will definitely be in the heart of Flashpoint come July, but since we’ve already talked about Flashpoint (see last month’s column for all the mini-series), I wanted talk about the non-Flashpoint titles for the month. Sadly, that only left me with a few. I even had to break a rule for this first one! It’s a hardcover!
NEW TEEN TITANS GAMES HC

Twenty years in the making, Teen Titans: Games is a can’t-miss for fans new and old. Harking back to the era when New Teen Titans was the best-selling monthly comic series comes this lost tale from legendary creators Marv Wolfman (Crisis on Infinite Earths) and George Perez (Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds) starring their fan-favorite characters just in time for the New Teen Titans’ 30th anniversary!
Set in the 1980s during the height of the New Teen Titans popularity, this stand-alone hardcover features a mysterious villain playing a deadly game with New York City as the game board-and the Teen Titans as the pieces! Like something out of a time capsule, this never-before-seen epic is the New Teen Titans story from their original creators that has never been told… until now!
It’s true; this one definitely comes from the "Normally Not Included in This Column Dept." But I feel like I’ve been hearing about it for years (20 years according to DC) and it seems like something that would definitely pique people’s interest. Plus, I love the retro vibe of the cover.
