DC Comics Pride Month Celebration Continues…
It’s been over a month since we’ve dropped a full-length preview ost like this one for DC Comics and that’s all due to the overwhelming amount of work that needs to be covered here at The Nerdy Basement, in addition to the much-needed break from reality that I took a couple of weeks ago when I went on vacation. It goes without saying that I had no intention of coming back to reality, I mean who does, right? Especially when the vacation is that much more memorable than anticipated.
This week’s batch of DC Comics releases are small but hefty, from Batgirls #7 to Naomi: Season Two #4, The Sandman Universe to Batman Urban Legends, and the ongoing celebration of Pride Month with DC Pride: Tim Drake Special #1, there is something for everyone. As per usual, DC Comics is always generously providing us with previews for their weekly releases, so take a look down below, check out each preview, and feel free to reach out via social media to let us know which titles you will be picking up this week!
