A slew of creators filled the seats of a crowded WonderCon press room with surprises that started before the event began. Perched in one of the seats was a former Marvel exclusive creator and current writer of Marvel Comics’ Star-Lord. The event was streaming across multiple platforms, but the audience was still encouraged to make noise and take photos with ‘Green Lantern’ photography. DC All-Access host Tiffany Smith came on-stage to introduce the event.
The publisher showed a video showcasing some of the most popular moments in the publishing history, including panels from Flash: Rebirth, Final Crisis and much much more. DC Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee were welcomed to the stage. Lee thanked the various teams that put the show together including the WonderCon staff, live-streaming team, DCE President Diane Nelson, and finally…the fans.
Getting straight to the point, DiDio explained the reasoning behind their upcoming Rebirth event. “What this is about, is to show you that we care as much as you do about these characters.”
DiDio introduced DC’s Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns. Johns’ recalled the story of DiDio first telling him about the “Rebirth” of DC. Johns’ shared part of the cover to DC Universe: Rebirth #1 by Gary Frank. Lee introduce new costumes for various characters, including Supergirl in a brand new jacket!
DiDio addressed the price point of double-shipping titles, stating that they would maintain the line-wide $2.99 price point.
Finally, we got to the moment everyone has been waiting for: the announcement of talent behind DC Rebirth titles. In order to introduce the various creatives on each book, artists and writers told stories about their favorite moments in DC history.

looks much stronger than the initial new52 pool of creators. let’s hope for the best.
Looks stronger than the initial new 52? Except for bringing in Rucka, it’s the same gang of idiots.
PRE-FLASHPOINT SUPERMAN IS SUPERMAN!!!!!
Hey, Scott Lobdell is down to one book a month now. That alone is a victory. Maybe Harras will finally have to not give him any more writing assignments after he runs Red Hood further into the ground.
Overall I like Snyder, King, Jurgens and Seeley staying on the Batverse side of things and it feels like the books will just organically grow into the new status quo for some reason. Otherwise until I see some real descriptions of concepts behind the titles not really overly interested in any of these titles just based on a marketing burst.
And so we have Barbara Gordon still as Batgirl. So much for the hopes of a return to the old continuity.
Can’t say I’m blown away by the old-new mismash going on above, but I can see a couple of books I’m definitely picking up and a couple more I’ll keep an eye on. That’s more interest than I was able to scrape up for Marvel post-Secret Wars.
Also, how the hell did DC managed to score Christopher Priest on Deathstroke?! That’s amazing.
Comics are synonymous with habits. For those of us who’ve been away, it might just be easier to maintain the habit than go out of the way to look in on DC’s characters again. Especially since such irrevocable damage has been done to them.
That includes the travesty of the cinematic universe.
More for everyone else, I guess. :)
Yep, I sure do remember Tom King, Christopher Priest, Hope Larson, Gene Luen Yang, Simon Oliver, Phil Jimenez, and Dan Abnett’s total of 0 comics in the New 52 launch.
Yes, many of these writers are *now* writing DCU books (though not Larson, Priest, Oliver, or Jimenez, let alone relatively new writers like Percy, Semper, or the Bensons) but there’s a lot of people with titles coming out this summer that weren’t at DC post-Flashpoint.
Sorry to see SECRET SIX, BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE, and DOCTOR FATE go (along with the promised second PREZ series, most likely), but turnover is inevitable. Sigh.
PRIEST! HOLY CRAP!!!
I’m not a Deathstroke fan, but I’m looking forward to Priest’s take. Good to have him back.
This feels like a pretty conservative list; not a lot of surprises or risks. It feels like, as some people have been saying, DC’s shying away from its last round of launches, and trying to appeal to old fans instead of new ones. I don’t think that’s a good sign.
Of course, this isn’t everything DC’s going to be publishing; I hear Gotham Academy is coming back too, and it’s a great example of a book that’s not like anything else the company is doing. (Albeit, yes, another Batman tie-in.)
Going by these images of Superman, I get the feeling they’re killing off the New 52 Superman, and replacing him with that middle-aged Superman who has a son. There you go, says it all, the target audience for these books
@Kevin – Abnett was writing a post-Flashpoint book – Resurrection Man. Yang was writing Superman during the new 52 era.
@Kevin PREZ is coming back in October, as confirmed by the creatives on Twitter. Same is true for Gotham Academy, and I imagine a few other non-superheroic DC books. DC is sidelining them, likely in an attempt to focus the market on the mainstream “meat and potatoes” until Rebirth is well and truly out of the gates.
OK so they changed some of the creative staff. fine. But will the content of the stories be any different, or just the same stories for they have been doling out for the last 30 years? How much editorial interference will be made by the studio heads to keep characters in line with the other DC products( movies, and merch).
How will the marketing of DC books be handled? Are they going to diversify their marketing plan, and I mean spreading the word and getting specific books to different target audiences? These are the things that may help them, because otherwise, this does not look any different than what they have been doing before.
