MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

DC Rebirth has been on of the biggest events in comics, and our own Ryan Mayer is here to give his breakdown of the first issue.

The biggest problem DC Comics has had over the years is that by going through with big reboots, back in 2011, and starting the New 52, they alienated some fans by bringing in a world that was more cynical than what fans have known for years. Some new readers to comics who started New 52 liked it, while a majority of veteran readers disliked the direction in which these characters were going. Finally, it was announced that DC Rebirth was coming and fans immediately assumed the worst about YET. ANOTHER. REBOOT!

Luckily for fans Geoff Johns, the Chief Creative Officer at DC Comics, confirmed that this issue was not a reboot at all.

This issue became something fans have been waiting for, an event that instilled what had been missing in the New 52. This would be a tall order for Geoff Johns, who has been one of DC Comics top writers and the go-to-man when it came to any projects involving these characters. It was announced that not only would DC Comics Rebirth #1 begin the event but the issue would be 89 pages long. This issue became very hard to get as the release date came closer, due to the implications it would have on the DC Universe and for Superman fans who just watched what happened to him in Superman #52. The day finally arrived when this huge issue would land at local comic book stores and fans could start to take everything in and see if Geoff Johns succeeded. or if they'd dropped the ball.
