DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan Didio appeared in an online Q&A with ComicVine. Didio teased a controversial moment taking place in the DC Universe: Rebirth #1 one-shot which kicks off the brand new slate of titles for DC dubbed “Rebirth.” The comic is written by Geoff Johns (Justice League) with art from Ethan Van Sciver (Green Lantern: Rebirth), Ivan Reis (Aquaman), Gary Frank (Batman: Earth One) and Phil Jimenez (Wonder Woman) slated for release May 25.
Didio also teased the announcement at WonderCon with creative team reveals. He called Rebirth a “return to greatness” further revealing that the special contains: “the single most controversial scene in DC Comics since the time I have been there.” For more on Rebirth here’s criticism on the reveal of the announcement and a cry for comics creators to be recognized instead of just the intellectual properties.
What’s the shocking moment going to be? Something akin to Identity Crisis (I hope not.) Another callback to the spine-shattering Batman: The Killing Joke bullet? Dick Grayson as Batman again? Do you think Rebirth will re-ignite your love of DC Comics…I think it might be worth a shot (and I hope that none of the moments I alluded to above actually transpire in the story.)
