Coming this summer from DC

I received a copy today of DC Comics’ catalog of graphic novels coming this summer. Most of them are trade paperbacks collecting previously published stories, but there is “Sloth,” a graphic novel from Gilbert Hernandez, the co-creator of “Love & Rockets.”

There also are some fun blasts from the past. “The Metal Men Archives” Vol. 1 collects the earliest adventures of Doc Magnus and his charming robotic Metal Men. And “Showcase Presents: Elongated Man” Vol. 1 features over 500 pages of stories featuring Elongated Man, the stretchable sleuth who has a key role in the current “52” series from DC.

Other collections that caught my eye include “Showcase Presents: Haunted Tank,” “Green Lantern: The Greatest Stories Ever Told,” a hardcover collection of the just-ended “Infinite Crisis” and an oversized “Absolute Edition” of “Kingdom Come” on the 10th anniversary of that groundbreaking series.
