You might remember a few months ago when DC Comics released the the Teen Titans Annual and the Animal Man Annual. This Wednesday, in honor of the fifth week of the month, DC is following up on those with FIVE more Annuals! The 48-page issues will all pick up on existing plot threads in the New 52, including Detective Comics Annual #1 written by Tony Daniel with art by Romano Molenaar and Sandu Florea, which pits the Dark Knight against the Black Mask, who was most recently seen in Night of the Owls; or Flash Annual #1 by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, which reunites the Rogues against both the Flash and Captain Cold. And one of the most exciting is surely the Green Lantern Annual, which reunites the creative team of Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver!
Look for all five Annuals this Wednesday! Much more info after the jump!

Next week is what we in the comic book biz refer to as a "fifth week." Why? Because it’s the fifth Wednesday in a single month! Not quite as rare a Blue Moon (which we’re also getting this month). but just as noteworthy.
DC Comics, for example, is offering up five Annuals for the week, including: Detective Comics Annual #1, Flash Annual #1, Green Lantern Annual #1, Justice League International Annual #1, and Superman Annual #1! Also look for both Aquaman #12 and Justice League #12! Finally, there’s Before Watchmen: Minutemen #3 (of 6) and National Comics: Looker #1, the second one shot in that series, which kicked off a few weeks ago with Eternity #1.
Over at Marvel, though you won’t see the main Avengers vs. X-Men title for a few more weeks, you will get AVX Vs. #5 (of 6) this week! Also from the X-books, look for Wolverine and the X-Men #15, Gambit #2, Uncanny X-Force #30, New Mutants #48 and X-Treme X-Men #2. Meanwhile, Journey into Mystery #642 continues the epic nine-part "Everything Burns" story arc!
There’s also Goon #41 from Dark Horse, X-O Manowar #4 from Valiant, Previews and much more!
