Click the links to order from Amazon. Details from the publishers.

This tabloid-sized epic from 1978 tells the tale of a forgotten chapter of World War II in which Superman and Wonder Woman cross paths while the United States stands at the brink of developing nuclear weapons. And while Superman sees their potential to stop the Axis, Wonder Woman is determined to destroy them before innocent lives are lost! But before this powerful twosome can settle their differences, they will have to face the super-powered menaces of Baron Blitzkrieg and the mysterious samurai known as Sumo!

Originally introduced in 1967, Deadman was a circus performer known as "Boston" Brand who was murdered while on the high-wire. In the afterlife, a mysterious being known as Rama Kushna gifted his spirit with the ability to possess the bodies of the living so he could discover the identity of his killer and bring him to justice. Featuring spectacular art by Neal Adams, José Luis García-López and others, these tales take Deadman across the DC Universe in search of justice.

"The Flash character fans have seen teased as part of Future State is, in fact, a grown-up Kid Quick, who's an analog for the idea of Kid Flash in a world where Jesse Quick is the definitive speedster," said Cohen.
