A short time ago the fine folks at DC Comics held a little social networking competition that challenged fans to identify as many heroes as they could in a series of four images. Now that the competing is done, I can safely share the full on image with you and can introduce you to the cast that will be featured in “DC Universe: Rebirth” – Take a look below.
About Rebirth: 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, including its continuity. It will also see many of its titles move to a twice-monthly release schedule, with all titles releasing at US$2.99.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I plan on picking up the first issues of these “Rebirth” titles and seeing what I like the most from the bunch. I was only half interested in “The New 52” when they offered that up five years ago. There was some that I loved and some that I was sitting with a quizzical look about how it even got a title in the first place. When titles that I enjoyed started getting cancelled I was pretty much over the whole thing and longed for a continuity that was pre-“Flashpoint”. We got a glimpse of the way before during “Convergence” and now here we are at a shift in the comic book balance with “Rebirth”. Let’s see what happens. A twice monthly schedule at $3 a copy is still $6 a month on any bunch of series you wish to collect and that can get pricey. I’m hoping that we get some solid storytelling and that too many changes are not straight ahead of us. That image above sure will make a great poster so I hope that the comic shops will be giving one away during the early weeks of the “Rebirth” process. What do you think of the whole thing and what titles do you think that you will collect in this new move. Below you will find the cover for the lead in title “DC Universe: Rebirth” which comes out tomorrow 5/25 so be sure to grab a copy or order one via the Amazon.com code below.
