From Lazarus Planet to Knight Terrors, 2023 is the Dawn of DC

DC Comics’ next big push is dubbed Dawn of DC, which is set to see both a number of relaunches, as well as some classic books hitting #800.

Comes the dawn

With DC Comics currently going through Lazarus Planet, fans have plenty of comics to read, not to mention keep up with. But of course that crossover event isn’t it for 2023, as goes the publisher.

Lazarus Planet is just the first part of an overarching initiative called Dawn of DC, which will be loaded with fresh directions for the DCU and its heroes and villains. As was revealed last week too, it’s also lining up to place Suicide Squad’s Amanda Waller right at its center.

For years, Amanda Waller has seen the heroes of the DC Universe as a dangerous threat that could lead to the end of the world. Ever since Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths, Amanda Waller has operated in the shadows to collect deadly weapons and to create an army of allies who agree with her. Now she’s forced to bring some of the worst enemies of the DC Universe an offer they can’t refuse. The Dawn of DC Primer, written by Joshua Williamson with artwork by Leandro Fernandez, reveals Dawn of DC’s secrets, threats, and connective stories in 2023 and beyond. This free special issue will be available at comic shops on May 16.

DC Comics press release

Eventually, Dawn of DC will lead into a second major 2023 crossover, called Knight Terrors, though that dreamscape tale is still a ways off. What isn’t, are some pretty key issues for both Flash and Wonder Woman.

Fans can expect both Flash #800 and Wonder Woman #800 this year, hitting June 6th and 20th, respectively. But past that, both heroes will see fresh runs kick off in September as a part of the aforementioned Dawn of DC.

Stay tuned DC fans, there’s a lot to watch for this year from the publisher.
