Alright my friends, we are up to the DC Comics offerings for June 2016 and this is the big one, or well at least the start of the big one because the “DC Universe: Rebirth” event is here. Yep, there is no more “The New 52” series running and it’s time to go back to the basics and start anew. This new initiative is going to find brand new first issues coming out en masse and many of them will be available twice a month once the series get started. Many of the titles will bear a $2.99 cover price which is cool since it’s a little cheaper but remember you will be getting two issues each month so it probably doesn’t matter if you collect a lot of titles and buy that “reserved for posterity” copy as well. With “Rebirth”, the core titles will each get a special one-shot “Rebirth” issue that will lead us into the new series. Since the new comics have already hit the stands a couple of days ago with my timing of this post, I can say that I read a bunch and its really off to a promising start. I highly recommend that you start your own journey into “Rebirth” with the special edition one-shot that came out last month entitled “DC Universe: Rebirth”. Its already up to a third printing as it’s been that well-received. As always the press and images come care of our friends at DC Comics and we only showcase the first issue in the narratives. There are other titles running concurrently. Here we go.
SUPERMAN: REBIRTH #1: The world needs a Man of Steel, but can Superman protect the world while raising a super-son with his wife, Lois Lane? IT BEGINS: Now it’s Clark’s turn to be Pa Kent and teach his son what it means to be super, but who is hunting Superman’s son—and why?
