The DC comics Universe is getting another reboot. The first issue comics in the new Rebirth series are now available for pre-order. It hasn’t been that long since the last major rewrite of the DC Universe, The New 52, but I think it was a wise decision to scrap The New 52 and start over. I’m excited for the Rebirth.
I’m hoping to see a return to the way that DC comics used to feel. That indefinable atmosphere that had made me a die-hard DC fan, and still keeps me watching every animated movie, live-action movie and tv show that DC release. The comics lost their DC-ness with the New 52. It seems like DC themselves have realised this.
There are 15 new titles available for pre-order that specifically focus on the rebirth. One of which, called “DC Universe: Rebirth #1” appears to be 70 pages dedicated to explaining the Rebirth and how it affects the characters in general. The other titles include perspectives from Batman, Superman, The Flash, The Red Hood and the Outlaws, and the Hellblazer John Constantine. At $2.99 each, I think I might just pre-order them all.
