The First Details on DC Comics’ Rebirth
After about a month of rumors, speculation, and just made up shit, DC Comics has released the first details of their next initiative, “Rebirth.” More information will be released at ComicsPro, but the initiative takes the concept of DC’s miniseries Green Lantern: Rebirth and Flash: Rebirth and applies that to the entire DC Universe.
In other worlds, the initiative continues to blend the old with the new, exactly what DC Comics began to do post their last event Convergence.
The shift begins on May 25 with DC Universe: Rebirth, an 80 page one shot written by Geoff Johns and art by Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Gary Frank, and Phil Jimenez.
he DC line will be renumbered, again, with new #1s. Action Comics and Detective Comics will return to their original numbering, so issue #957 and #934. DC Comics books will be priced at $2.99, and some comics will come out twice a month.
So, most of those rumors? Bunk, as expected.
