DC Comics Reveals New “Rebirth” Line-Up

dc comicsStarting in May, DC Comics will begin rolling out their new line-up of comics as part of its Rebirth event. As the name implies, these comics will try to get back to the essence of the characters.

According to Newsarama, the event will begin on May 25 with the release of DC Universe: Rebirth #1. Following this, the event will include 32 ongoing titles, with 15 of them shipping twice a month. Each month, there will also be various one-shots under the Rebirth title that focus on individual characters.

Besides the obvious inclusion of Batman and Superman, there are a number of other Dc comics that we are looking forward to.

If you haven’t been reading it already, the current Batgirl run has been incredibly well written. It’s less brooding and melodramatic than other DC comics. This makes it super refreshing for any DC fan. This time, it looks like she’ll also have a spin-off series titled Batgirl and the Birds of Prey.

For fans of classic Batman cartoons, you should look forward to the relaunch of Batman Beyond. That slick black costume fit in perfectly with the neo-Gotham vibe. It will be exciting to see how well this new series holds up to previous ones.
