This weekend DC Comics announced all the details of the upcoming Rebirth event at a highly-anticipated panel at WonderCon 2016.
The atmosphere in the packed-to-capacity room was surprisingly optimistic, despite fans having some serious problems with New 52 and Convergence. The DC higher ups took the right tone: when talking about DC’s recent history Dan Didio even said “sometimes you lose your way a little.” He said “something was missing” from New 52. The direction of Rebirth (on paper anyway, I’m a skeptical person) seems to be one of legacy characters, a re-commitment to fans, twice-monthly titles, and all books dropping to 2.99.
See below for more highlights, photos, artist lineups, and the full video of the panel.
