It’s safe to say that DC Comics owned WonderCon ’16 with the amount of announcements they’ve made for their books. I can also positively say that I might be fervently picking DC books again when the “Rebirth” begins.

DC Universe Rebirth by Gary Frank

Everything starts with the 80 page one shot book DC Universe Rebirth written by DC’s Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns with interior art by Gary Frank and Ethan Van Sciver. This book is scheduled to be released May 25.

Action Comics

action comics dc rebirth

Action Comics will return to its original numbering with creative team Dan Jurgens and drawn by Patrick Zircher, Tyler Kirkham, and Stephen Segovia. The book is scheduled to be released twice a month.

This is going to be the story of Superman, Lois and Jon that we have seen in Lois & Clark [the story Jurgens has been writing about the pre-New 52 Superman] coming to Metropolis. But prior to that, Lex Luthor has declared himself the Super-Man of Metropolis. And that’s kind of what gets Superman there.

Holy crap! That’s a ton of promising titles! Sure, sure it’s pretty much incomplete but you have to admit some of the creative teams are uber-talented. I mean I’m a Jim Lee fanboy so you can expect me to pick up the new Suicide Squad book.

Good job DC Comics, you have officially raised my interest.
