DC Unveils ‘Rebirth’ Starting in May

Yup, DC is at it again!  Here we have the new titles that will be running and re-leased through the summer and fall.  Update your pull lists, everyone!  It’s gonna be a heck of a ride!

After the release of the #52 issues of the “New 52,” which will ship in May, the relaunch will kick off with an 80-page DC Universe:  Rebirth one-shot, written by DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, which will street May 25.  DC Universe:  Rebirth will feature art by Ethan Van Sciver, Phil Jimenez, Ivan Reis, and Gary Frank on the Johns story.

The 80-page special will be value-priced at $2.99, the beginning of a value positioning that will see all DC Universe monthly and twice monthly titles priced at $2.99.  The special at the end of May will be followed by relaunches of the full DCU line, some to be published twice monthly, others to be published monthly.

And in a move that will undoubtedly please long-time collectors, DC is returning to the original numbering for its two original flagship titles, Action Comics andDetective ComicsAction Comics will resume with #957, and Detective with #934.  With both among the titles planned for twice monthly shipping, they will quickly reach the landmark #1000 issues.

DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio laid out the rationale for the relaunch.  “Rebirth is designed to bring back the best of DC’s past, embrace the stories we currently love and move the entire epic universe into the future,” he said.  “We are returning to the essence of the DCU. With Rebirth we are putting the highest priority on the direct market and we will continue to create and cultivate new opportunities for retailers to thrive and prosper, grow readers, fans and customers.”
