To keep the #1′s going, this October (2011), DC will be releasing more #1′s. Although these will be one-shots and mini-series, they are still #1′s. Some for sure will be big sellers, Batman Odyssey Vol 2 and Huntress. Others titles like Spaceman and Supernatural look very interesting. Questions remain: Will the current 52 titles DC plan to release in September last as ongoing series? Were these October titles eliminated from the September release because they exceeded the magical “52″ number, which holds so much significant to DC?
