“DC Universe Rebirth” stands revealed. DC Comics has pulled the curtain back, revealing the shape and scope of their line of superhero comics after the status-quo redefining “Rebirth” launches in May. Following the release of the $2.99, 80-page “DC Universe: Rebirth” #1 on May 25, DC Comics will begin to roll out “Rebirth” specials” and new #1 issues for their ongoing series, except for two series — “Detective Comics” and “Action Comics” — will return to their original numbering. The line will include two types of books: those published twice monthly and those published on a monthly basis. Every DC Universe book, regardless of their publication schedule, will be priced at $2.99. The line will consist of 32 total ongoing series, 17 twice-monthly and 15 monthly titles. DC will also publish 23 “Rebirth” one-shots ahead of launching the new ongoing series.
All of this starts on May 25th at Midnight (actually late on May 24th) with the release of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH one shot that will set up the new universe and tell the story of how everything is the way it is. This book will be amazing, and DC is giving stores the opportunity to release it earlier than a traditional Wednesday release. They are also allowing us to sell ALL OTHER DC comics that come out that week at Midnight together with the special. Not to be outdone, Marvel announced that they will allow all of their books to be sold at the same time. This means that you can come early and pick up all your Marvel AND DC book at 11:59 (+1) on Tuesday, May 24th. To commemorate this fun event, we will have a HUGE sale:
