DC Comics Presents: Rebirth

With the imminent launch of DC’s new long-term project titled Rebirth, a massive amount of news has been released pertaining to the event. DC’s Creative Chief Officer – Geoff Johns promised fans that this initiative is not a reboot. It is meant to combine fragments the universe prior to the New 52, all while maintaining the freshness of the stories in the current New 52 universe. A bold move indeed but if I know anything about Johns, it’s that he delivers.

Rebirth is geared to run 32 new issues, with some titles shipping twice a month. The titles will feature a one-shot rebirth issue before actually jumping into the main storylines. I understand their ideal behind wanting to bring in more revenue by giving the fans more to read on a monthly basis, however, this could be quit a burden on your wallet if you happen to be a completionist like myself; l tend to snag every cover that’s available for only 1 issue. #CollectorProblems

These are extremely exciting times for fans of the comic book franchise. I personally appreciate DC’s efforts in taking more creative risks to bring readers closer to their characters & stories. DC continues to pluck the right strings that make the magic happen. I can’t wait to see what new challenges await our heroes in the DC universe throughout the course of Rebirth, which is said to run through Aug 2018.
