96-page book gives fans a look at DC Comics: Rebirth and other titles
We’ve heard at last month’s WonderCon about DC Entertainment’s initiative to connect the New 52 versions of their famous characters with their roots through Rebirth. And there is even a 52 page online version of the June Preview book available. Now we learn the actual hardcopy, 96-page edition will hit newsstands on April 13.
The physical version will acquaint fans with a behind-the-scenes look at DC Universe: Rebirth, including an prelude by DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, the “mastermind” behind Rebirth. Johns also previews his DC Universe: Rebirth Special (available May 25), as well as interviews with artists and writers who are also taking part in this ambitious effort.
Written by Johns with art by Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Phil Jimenez and Gary Frank, the DC Universe: Rebirth Special gives readers 80 pages of a mystery surrounding the current DC Universe for only $2.99, and will set the table for a complete re-launch of character-specific Rebirth titles, followed by new issue #1’s featuring the heroes and villains that make up this new universe. Beginning in June, 17 titles will ship twice monthly, with an additional 14 titles shipping monthly, all at a new, lower price of $2.99. Throughout the summer and into October, additional titles will get the Rebirth treatment – a Rebirth one-shot, followed by a new issue #1.
