First Look at DC’s ‘Digital First’ Releases for Week Commencing 20th July

This week’s DC Digital First release slate includes the second chapter of Shazam: Lightning Strikes, the return of Birds of Prey: Sirens of Justice and a new story from Robert Venditti and Scott Hepburn in Superman: The Man of Tomorrow.

It also looks like the original seven days a week schedule continues to reduce, with just four titles going on sale this week (well, five if you count the fifth chapter of Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red which drops on Friday), and it’ll be interesting to see if this trend continues, or reverses, in the weeks to come.

Either way, there’s some great standalone stories available for a knock-down price this week, and full details of all this week’s releases, including preview art, can be found below.
