Geoff Johns Finally Introduces DC’s New Rebirth
Making things nice and easy for me, Geoff Johns made a little video for Comic Book Resources about the new Rebirth at DC Comics. It’s not a reboot.
Johns also sat down for a big, explanatory interview with CBR. You can read it here!
So basically, to sum a lot of it up, there’s going to be a big one-shot coming out in May to kick this whole thing off. Then all the comics are going to get a new #1 issue, except for Detective Comics and Action Comics, which will be going back to their original numbering. That means we’ll soon get to #1,000s! That’s pretty darn cool.
In fact, CBR also has the full list of comics coming out of DC in Rebirth!
Among the news, it looks like Dick Grayson will go back to being Nightwing, which is cool (unless someone else is going to be Nightwing). There will be more Titans, which is cool. They’re going to try again with Blue Beetle, which is fun, but sadly, no sign of Batwoman yet. She’s always been a favorite.
I’m fine with whatever DC has planned, as long as they keep putting out enjoyable comics. I long ago gave up on caring about continuity or legacy or whatever. As long as you’re producing good comics with characters I like, I’ll keep reading.
My only complaint is that I think the Batgirl creative team is changing. That’s borderline unacceptable.
