New comics arrive this week from Tim Seeley, John Timms, Stephanie Phillips, Ram V, Anand RK, Mike Hawthorne and more.
Welcome to Can’t Wait for Comics, your guide to what comics are arriving in comic book stores, bookstores and on digital.
The list of comics distributor websites has become quite the cornucopia lately. Here are some options to get the full picture of what’s arriving this week:
Something to keep in mind, though, is that the list of what is actually arriving at your specific local shop may vary from what’s on anyone’s official website for a myriad of reasons — so always check with your comics retailer for the final word on availability.
And on that note, I’m afraid there’s bad news: this week will again bring delays for products shipped by Diamond, as they continue to recover from a ransomware attack.

On one side you have Robins, by the creative team of Tim Seeley, Baldemar Rivas, Romulo Fajardo Jr. and Steve Wands. They made it past Green Lanterns: Underworld on Fire in the previous round. On the other side, you have Suicide Squad Seven, by Rex Ogle, Diogenes Neves, Rex Lokus and Tom Napolitano, which beat out Blue Beetle.
They’re two different kinds of stories; on the one hand, you have a bunch of former Batman proteges teaming up; on the other, El Dorado! If you’re having a hard time deciding, DC has provided 10 page previews of both titles, starting with Robins:

Four pitches remain in DC’s competition that allows fans to choose their next title.
DC Comics has opened up voting for round three of their Round Robin competition, where fans vote on which comic book concept they’d like to see made and published. They’ve also released preview pages for each of the four concepts to give you a better sense as to what exactly you’re voting for.
The competition started about a month ago, as DC pitted 16 comic book pitches against each other, March Madness style, and let fans vote on the one they wanted to see become a real comic. After two round of voting, they’ve narrowed it down to four pitches:

For round one, they revealed the pitch, but refrained from identifying the creative teams until voting for that round closed. Fans went into round two knowing who would be working on each entry, and here’s how the voting landed:
