DC Comics March 2016 Solicitations are here and are once again headlined by Frank Miller’s Dark Knight III: The Master Race. There are also a number of milestone issues with Batman, Superman, The Flash, Detective Comics, Action Comics, Aquaman, Batgirl, Catwoman, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, and Wonder Woman all reaching the 50 issue mark. I’ll be honest I haven’t been pulling much from DC except for Batman, Justice League, and Dark Knight. Are there any books you recommend that I should be reading in preparation for the March releases?
