GOING THROUGH AN AWKWARD PHRASE DEPT.
Hey gang! It’s summertime, and the sunshine is beckoning! We keep very busy all year round here at DC Collectibles, but it’s important to take a break every now and then for some rest and rejuvenation. That’s why we’re letting our August collectibles take a short summer vacation. Looks like they’ve been making good use of it! Check out what they've been up to in the photos above.
Oh, and if you like what you see we suggest you take a break yourself…and visit our online store:

Yes, we know. You’re hungry for more “Trinity War.” Believe us, so are we, and the next installment will be here soon (next week, as a matter of fact).

SCOOBY-DOO, WHERE ARE YOU? #36 has monsters that need unmasking, ghosts that need dodging, and more than a few mysteries that need solving! Altogether, there are three different tales of mystery and suspense!
In “On Your Marks, Get Set, Ghost,” Terry the Terror is terrorizing the pit crew at the big races. Will Scooby and the gang figure out what this monstrous apparition wants … or will their day at the races end in disaster?

Powered up with energy rings and battling on Earth and in space, the girls seem to be all set to beat Sinestra back into the void she crawled out of. But what happens if their powers aren’t enough to defeat Sinestra? Will the secret weapon built on Rann be what they need to win? And at what cost?
