Full April DC Solicitations

A few days ago I posted the nearly-full complement of Flash-related April DC solicits, and here’s the complete one courtesy of Newsarama. It includes TPBs and a plush Whatzit, and clears up the mystery of the Flash-Batman crossover solicits, so it’s behind the jump for length.
