While visiting your comic book shop after midnight to buy comics isn’t exactly a norm for me, my local enticed me with free donuts, coffee and some Rebirth! The empty roads and the easy parking was pretty nice too. And so here we are, burning the midnight oil at EB.
The DC Universe Rebirth officially launched 12:00AM May 25th with the release of DC Universe Rebirth #1, an 80-page one-shot comic which will pave the way for what’s to come. The story takes place after Justice League #50 and Superman #52 (DC recommends reading those first). It was written by DC Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns, and features art from a number of different artists.
The new theme in the Rebirth will be divided into four chapters: Loss, Legacy, Love, Life. With the premiere issue featuring the mysterious death of a character, three characters will also be reintroduced, along with other “secrets” which I’ll let you find out for yourself.
The last few pages show off some of the Rebirth covers we’ll see rolled out next, with the last page showing a complete checklist – see below. In closing, because my pillow is calling me, shoutout to my local shop, A & S Comics, for always going above and beyond for its customers.
