'Rebirth' Roundtable: Breaking Down DC's Latest Announcements
'Rebirth' Roundtable: Breaking Down DC's Latest Announcements
The biggest news to come out of last weekend's WonderCon was unquestionably the announcement of DC's new "Rebirth" initiative, which featured an all-new lineup of DC titles that mix familiar faces with a few surprises --- in terms of both characters and creators. With a few months left before those titles actually hit stands, we're due for weeks of speculation, conjecture, and reaction to the new titles. And that starts with us. We convened a roundtable discussion for a quartet of ComicsAlliance staffers --- Elle Collins, Kieran Shiach, Chris Sims, and Andrew Wheeler --- to offer up their thoughts about the announcements, including what they're looking forward to, what they're skeptical about, and how they think the upcoming Rebirth titles compare to DC's last few new directions.

Today, DC Comics revealed the first details on the "Rebirth" that creative heads Geoff Johns, Jim Lee and Dan DiDio had been teasing for the past few weeks. During the annual retailer convention ComicsPRO, DC pulled back the curtain on its plans for the future of its publishing line, including restoring the "legacy" of heroes like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the DCU. Johns, who helmed previous "rebirths" for Green Lantern and the Flash, claimed the linewide switch in creative direction will be a back-to-basics approach, and we'll even see books like Action Comics and Detective Comics return to their original numbering.
