DC Comics has some big plans for 2016! DC Comics Co-Publisher announced DC Comics’ Rebirth on social media that had the comics industry and fandom atwitter.
While many have speculated this a line-wide ongoing series relaunch with new #1, which seems plausible, the question is when such a relaunch would occur? And will it be a one-month affair like the launch of the DC New 52 was?
Along with a line-wide impact, seemingly to position its titles more in line with how its TV and movie projects are portrayed as well as continue to expand the diversity of the line, it would appear that there will be an “event” series as part of #Rebirth helmed by DC Entertainment Chief Creative Office and writer Geoff Johns with DC Comics exclusive artist Ethan Can Sciver.
Folks will remember they helmed the successful Green Lantern: Rebirth mini-series over a decade a go that brought back Green Lantern Hal Jordan to the fore of DC Comics.
Rebirth has some resonance for DC Comics and has been used in arc names and was used in another Geoff Johns and Etahn Van Sciver project called The Flash: Rebirth (thanks to Lorenzo Bonilla for the memory twig).
What is this new Rebirth about? More on that soon.
