DC Rebirth – Pre-Order Your Books!

DC Rebirth is a 2016 relaunch by DC Comics of its entire line of ongoing monthly superhero comic books. Using the end of The New 52 initiative in May 2016 as its launching point, DC Rebirth is intended to restore the DC Universe to a form much like that prior to the “Flashpoint” storyline, while still incorporating numerous elements of The New 52. It also see many of its titles move to a twice-monthly release schedule, with all titles releasing at US$2.99.

The first of the line is DC Universe Rebirth #1, released at the end of May 2016.

Geoff Johns described the 80-page one-shot as “re-laying the groundwork for DC’s future while celebrating the past and present. It’s not about throwing anything away. It’s quite the opposite.” On the initiative, which was described as a rebirth of the DC Universe, Johns call Rebirth more “in the same vein as Green Lantern: Rebirth and The Flash: Rebirth. Some things alter and change, but it’s more character-driven, and it’s also more about revealing secrets and mysteries within the DC Universe about “Flashpoint” and The New 52 that are part of a bigger tapestry.” The Rebirth initiative will reintroduce concepts from pre-Flashpoint continuity, such as legacy, that were lost with The New 52 and build “on everything that’s been published since Action Comics #1 up thru The New 52.”

Below are June’s releases from the Rebirth line.
