DC Universe Rebirth #1> It all begins here. Do not skip to the last page. Do not let a friend or message board ruin this comic for you. The future (and past) of the DC Universe starts here. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
THEY SAID IT: “Rebirth is about focusing in on the core of the character and their respective universe,” says writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. “It brings back what has been lost, the legacy of the characters, the love and the hope of the DCU!”(W) Geoff Johns (A) Gary Frank & Various (CA) Gary Frank
Justice League #50> This is it!! The massive, 48-page conclusion to the critically-acclaimed “DARKSEID WAR” can hardly be contained between two covers! Don’t miss the final fates of the world’s greatest heroes and villains, along with world-changing revelations for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. It doesn’t get bigger than this as DC’s monthly super hero event comic sets the stage for the next year and beyond! Geoff Johns (A/CA) Jason Fabok
Smurfs Take> The colossal end to one of the best Justice League series and what better way to end it than with Darkseid. I don’t know how this leads into Rebirth, I am curious what Batman saw and how it affects the team but the one thing I know for sure is Geoff Johns never disappoints in telling a story. I loved is run on GL and it’s never been the same I wonder if the same will be said about the League.
