In June Superman’s life is getting a huge shake-up with his identity exposed, a new costume and him coming to terms with a new power which all leaves him essentially human for short periods of time. These changes will be explored in the upcoming “Truth” storylines, which will encompass Superman, Action Comics, Batman/Superman and Superman/Wonder Woman. To make this Superman event easier to digest I have created the Superman: Truth Reading Guide, which lists all the titles involved, lead-in titles, dates, creative teams and more.

Earlier in the month Stjepan Sejic put has put up his charming dark fantasy, Death Vigil, up online for free. The intention of doing so is to get it in front of as many eyeballs as possible in order to keep the series alive, and further than the originally intended 8 issues. From there there readers can decide if they enjoyed the series and pick it up digitally or when the trade paperback comes out in July. I’m here to tell you where you can find these free issues and, hopefully, in the process help you discover what could be your new favorite comic.
