It’s that time of the week again! Welcome to the weekly previews for June 22nd, 2011 here at Bloody-Disgusting.com! The truth is everyone would read all the books if they had the time and money, but in reality most of us don’t. Here you will find a little taste of some major comics being released each week, my take on them, and, as always, feels free to discuss below. Whether you have been into comics since you were a little one, or are new to the game, I’m here to help you decide which books are for you. I’ve picked out some comics I feel will stand out in the coming week and listed them under their respective publisher, with over a dozen previews of some of your favorite books such as CAPTAIN AMERICA, BATMAN: GATES OF GOTHAM, 68, HACK/SLASH, and more. Read on for the skinny…
Now that the long running (and highly successful) “BRIGHTEST DAY” story-arc is finally coming to an end, publisher DC and the rest of their Uni are going to have no choice but to sift through the aftermath for the months, maybe years, to come. One such title is the newly announced “BRIGHTEST DAY AFTERMATH: THE SEARCH FOR SWAMP THING”, and no, you didn’t read that wrong, it actually does say “SWAMP THING”. Below you can check out the cover art and get the full synopsis, but details on the project thus far are pretty sparse.

“Following the events of Brightest Day, the new protector of Earth has been chosen. But one reluctant hero making his return to the DCU is trying to convince Batman, Superman and the others heroes of the DC Universe that this may not be a good thing, because he can see that things are not right and mankind’s brightest days are indeed over.”
