I was thrilled to see […] Its name is taken from the earlier series' Green Lantern: Rebirth and The Flash: Rebirth, both written by [[Geoff Joh DC Rebirth is a massive DC Universe initiative published in 2016. We cannot load the video because your browser does not support JavaScript. More titles will continue to be released each week, with each comic added 12 months after its initial publication date. It’s also probably unwise to read this as Geoff Johns and the rest of the creative team “blaming Watchmen” for the struggles of DC Comics over the last decade. The go-to source for comic book and superhero movie fans. Someone must be following his career with great interest... All the latest gaming news, game reviews and trailers. After the heavy tease in DC Universe: Rebirth #1, that Dr. Manhattan is likely responsible for the heroes' lost decade, some have posited that the Empty Hand from The Multiversity is, in fact, Manhattan himself. The thing is, DC Universe: Rebirth is a remarkably efficient comic, and one of the best single issues of anything published by the struggling DC Comics in the last 5 years or more. During its first 50 years, DC Comics was plagued with continuity issues, such as Superman suddenly acquiring the ability to fly. Over the course of its twelve chapters, Watchmen had a representation of the Doomsday Clock as a recurring motif. Due to the effects of Flashpoint, the Superman everyone knew and loved was gone. Abnett admitted he couldn't help but throw in the not-so-subtle tease at the end for the former Kid Flash's potential return in Rebirth and, subsequently, Titans: Rebirth. The first issue, DC Universe: Rebirth #1, is reasonably newcomer-friendly and does a tremendous job of introducing characters and explaining past events to first-time readers, though it undoubtedly leaves some of those readers in quite a conundrum. But a funny thing happened on the way to the finale. Sales,gift ideas,geek gifts,Funko Legacy,Pop!,back issue comic books, SDCC 2014 exclusive,and more! It's there that the heroes (and the readers) meet the mysterious Empty Hand, who banishes the heroes without breaking a sweat. It may even answer some questions regarding DC Universe: Rebirth #1, especially considering that Wally West, who narrates the first Rebirth issue, is the missing tenth Titan from Titans Hunt. In other words, it’s not important how it fits into the story, any more than it matters which stories from your comic book collection still “happened” in continuity. Heroes that were legends became novices. The ongoing eight-issue monthly miniseries (which concludes in July 2016) chronicles the history of Superman, Lois Lane, and their nine-year-old son, Jonathan Samuel Kent, in the post-Flashpoint universe, leading up to the events of Rebirth. Ahead of Rebirth, DC Comics commissioned writer Dan Abnett to bring the pre-Flashpoint Teen Titans -- Nightwing, Speedy, Wonder Girl, Herald, Caveboy, Aqualad, Lilith, Hawk, and Dove -- back into continuity with a 12-issue series (not to be confused with the 1991 Titans Hunt story arc). It’s definitely not a 10-part crossover.”. If reading the comics isn't in the cards for you, alternatively, in 2014, Warner Bros. gave the six-issue run a faithful direct-to-video adaptation -- sans Aquaman, who was replaced by Shazam -- titled Justice League: War. Interestingly, based on the events of the season two finale of The Flash TV series, there is a high chance season three will contain some elements from the famed story arc, albeit with some modifications, because, for all we know, Batman doesn't exist in The CW's Arrowverse. This places them further back than they ever were in Watchmen, indicating that the current DCU is no longer constantly on the brink of existential annihilation or terminal realism. I haven't read it yet because I was late on Rebirth.

Besides the overarching war between the world's finest heroes and Darkseid, the final issues in The New 52's Justice League series contains revelations that trickle over to Rebirth. If you want to continue on with a “literal” take on Rebirth, then this “darkness” that has “infected” the DCU happened before Flashpoint, and thus, before Dr. Manhattan interfered in the timeline. This will set you up for a few comics even more fully, especially Batman, Superman, and, most importantly, The Flash. Enable JavaScript support in your browser and reload this page. The Superman that took over in The New 52 (we'll call him post-Flashpoint Supes) never married Lois Lane and was, instead, in a relationship with Wonder Woman. But the clock hands visible in the final image of Rebirth are a solid 15 minutes away from doomsday. Bonds between them were weakened and erased. TIME lists the novel on as being one of the 100 Best English Novels released since 1923, as well as one of the 10 Best Graphic Novels ever made. Even when Dr. Manhattan “speaks” later, it’s just quotes of old dialogue, echoes from an earlier work, nothing new, strangely devoid of context, perhaps indicating that there’s no actual place for it here in the DCU. The story is set five years in the past and sees the seven heroes reluctantly come together in a time of need when the world is being invaded by extraterrestrial forces. DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers & Review follow for Green Lanterns #6. Unfortunately, the series was shortened down to just eight issues that concluded in May, leading directly into DC's Rebirth. Which of these comics do you deem essential reading? The story arc is the first confrontation the Justice League has with Darkseid, who is revealed to be the mastermind behind the invasion. This is the chronological watch order for the DC Animated Universe that's based off of DCs New 52 concepts and stories (with the exception of parts of Son of Batman, Batman: Hush, Constantine: City of Demons, The Death of Superman, Reign of the Supermen, and Teen Titans: The Judas Contract). Thanks to DC Universe: Rebirth #1, though, it seems the Watchmen story is now officially canon. It's seen in DC Universe: Rebirth #1 that post-Flashpoint Superman has disappeared and is presumed dead. DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Gary Frank and Phil Jimenez will be available May 25 in print and as a digital download. Ever since DC unveiled its line-up for Rebirth, we’ve had some questions about why the classic Superman of the old DC universe will replace New 52 Superman in the comics. Sometime in 2016 (just before Rebirth), Johns was named President and Chief Creative Officer for DC Entertainment. That’s not a damning indictment, but rather a statement as to the future of that publisher and its titles. Instead, it says that while continuity did change in the wake of Flashpoint (which was the catalyst for the last five years of DC’s publishing strategy), it didn’t change how or why we thought. Adding back those ten years should also help make these relationships more believable. After all, it's not easy to explain how Batman knows there are three Jokers, where the pre-Flashpoint Superman came from, and why The New 52 Superman is now missing. I’ll let Wally West, the narrator of Rebirth and a key legacy character who was eliminated from the “reality” of the New 52, take it from here: “But someone outside of time watched it all happen…as our timelines reformed, someone stole ten years from us. I also think Rebirth is starting to lose steam. Mike Cecchini | This battle eventually leads into the massive crossover event, Darkseid War, which itself leads into Rebirth. Reading those spoilers completely out of context from a comic that has a lot of work to do within its pages was bound to set the internet on fire, especially when you consider that it involves two things guaranteed to drive fans to their keyboards: it involves messing with DC Comics continuity (again), and it brings in one of comicdom’s sacred cows in order to do it. Get the best of Den of Geek delivered right to your inbox! The first sets up the next “Phantom Ring” and “Phantom Lanterns” arcs. Incidentally, the real Doomsday Clock currently sits at 3 minutes to midnight. While the events of Flashpoint do not directly affect Rebirth, many of its elements do, such as the letter Thomas Wayne asks Barry to give to Bruce and the introduction of Pandora, both of which can be seen in DC Universe: Rebirth #1. This has not been (read: never will be) confirmed, though it does present an interesting twist. And while continuity resets are nothing new at DC (the joke is that they happen every five years or so…and that’s becoming less and less of a joke), DC Universe: Rebirth is not another reset of DC’s timeline. A decade was removed like a Jenga piece…it changed everything. Though Green Lantern: Rebirth released four years before The Flash: Rebirth, it's the latter's story arc that played a vital role is setting up The New 52, which eventually led to the latest Rebirth event. The company-wide event Rebirth aims to change that perception by not rebooting but rather relaunching the DC Universe, merging the pre-Flashpoint/pre-New 52 continuity with The New 52 continuity. This has not been (read: never will be) confirmed, though it … For instance, in Justice League #42, to stop Metron's Mobius Chair from booming away, Batman sits on it and consequently feels a surge of energy (ultimate knowledge) rush through him. Watchmen‘s symbolic Doomsday Clock began at 12 minutes to midnight, and got as close as 1 minute. Interestingly, before taking on the DC Extended Universe, Zack Snyder's first superhero film was the R-rated Watchmen adaptation in 2009. However, DC Comics Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee still reported directly to Diane Nelson, also President of DC Entertainment. Maybe we need to take some cues from the heroes of the DC Universe to do something about that. Q: “What's the difference between "The 52", "The New 52", and "DC Rebirth"?” Okay. The initial lineup included Doctor Fate, Hour-Man, the Spectre, the Sandman, the Atom, the Flash, Hawkman and Green Lantern.Now, if you’re a comics reader or a #DCTV fan, there’s a very good chance you recognize some of the names in that list, but there’s an equally good chance that you’re t… I’m a reader with little use for anyone playing around in the Watchmen sandbox, but reading Rebirth for the first time, completely spoiler free, as the big reveal became more apparent as the story unfolded, it never really occurred to me that “they’re putting Watchmen in continuity.” Dr. Manhattan may or may not “really” be gazing down at the DC Universe’s primary Earth from Mars, and button or no button (and to be honest, this is perhaps the only genuine misstep in the entire comic), you’re not going to see Batman fight Ozymandias any time soon. Along with The New 52 reboot came new origin stories for several characters, which meant a new origin story for the Justice League was required. You’d have to treat that very, very carefully. He joined the team as a freelancer back in 2016 and somehow managed to fail upwards. When I was outside of time, I felt their presence…we’re being watched.”. After years and years of investigating, Barry finally knew who killed his mother, and it's this revelation that eventually convinces the Scarlet Speedster to change the past. Following the events of 2016's DC Universe: Rebirth #1, much of this history was restored, and DC's heroes again received new series. To understand why that is, and what perilous situation Superman was in that resulted in his death, one must read the eight-part crossover story arc The Final Days of Superman, which consists of the final two issues of The New 52 Superman, Superman/Batman, Superman/Wonder Woman, and Action Comics series. Instead of solving one of the oldest mysteries in comic book history, the chair just made the Joker's history all the more perplexing -- which is something Batman will use his detective skills to uncover the truth about throughout his Rebirth run. I was fortunate enough to be able to attend my top choice for panels at New York Comic Con, DC Rebirth – What’s Next? DC Comics produced two sequel story arcs, Infinite Crisis and Final Crisis, which released in 2005 and 2008, respectively, eventually leading to the return of Barry Allen and a conclusion to the trilogy of multiverse-altering crises. It just happens to be that they chose to use Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ creation Dr. Manhattan, from the often imitated but never duplicated Watchmen, as the force behind this change. @wayoutstuff, Mike Cecchini is the Editor-in-Chief of Den of Geek. Instead it was altered by an outside force with godlike power. I’m a reader with little use for anyone playing around in the, and the newly appointed co-chair of DC Films, The Sandman Audible Original Review: the Dreaming Comes to Audiobook, Mangamo: New Manga Streaming App Launches, DC's Strange Adventures #1 Lives Up to the Hype, the real Doomsday Clock currently sits at 3 minutes to midnight, DC Universe: Rebirth Brings Hope and Optimism Back for Fans. The thing is, DC Universe: Rebirth is a remarkably efficient comic, and one of the best single issues of anything published by the struggling DC Comics in the last 5 years or more. Rebirth ended with the No Justice thing and then well it was a downhill decline after DKM. To amend his mistake, Barry travels back in time to prevent his earlier self from changing the timeline. : Mai Vs. Yugi - Who Is The Better Duelist, Ethan Hawke’s Gem Blaze & 9 Other Directorial Sleeper Hits On Netflix, Naruto: The Main Characters, Ranked From Worst To Best By Character Arc, The Vampire Diaries: How Old The Heroes Really Are? In order to rectify their missteps, DC devised a story that would result in all the parallel Earths merging into one continuity. “That would be a future conversation,” he said. This isn’t Dr. Manhattan or some cosmic apotheosis of Adrian Veidt or Edward Blake. Geoff Johns got a promotion. Those earlier rumors of DC embarking on a publisher-wide reboot or relaunch just became a … I’ll let Wally West, Rebirth‘s surrogate for both writer Geoff Johns (who got his start in comics writing Wally’s adventures in The Flash) and frustrated DC Comics fans, take over again: “A darkness from somewhere has infected us. Unlike the other comics on this list, Grant Morrison's The Multiversity story arc isn't directly connected to the DC's Rebirth, but it could be. But as the reputation and influence of Watchmen (and Dark Knight Returns, which was released at virtually the same time) grew, so did everyone’s collective desire to create “another Watchmen,” despite the fact that these are the kinds of generational works that aren’t easily duplicated. In the ninth and final chapter, The Multiversity #2, the combined heroes travel to Earth-7 to finish off the Gentry, but are met with an unfathomable legion they could not hope to defeat. Green Lanterns #6 had a two-fer ending. Manhattan actually affects nothing in the story, even the death of Pandora (which is like a plot device getting murdered by another plot device) is laid out like the death of Rorschach from the end of Watchmen. Before Flashpoint, the DC Universe was divided into pre-Crisis and post-Crisis continuities, created by the quintessential crossover event, Crisis on Infinite Earths. Does Rob has a pattern? Legacies were destroyed.”, Considering that this is likely to be the last comic that Geoff Johns writes for quite some time, as his duties with DC Films are going to take up the bulk of his time over the next few years, I don’t think there’s any danger of Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver (or Gary Frank, or Ivan Reis, or anyone else for that matter) foisting a Justice League vs. Watchmen monstrosity on the reading public. Does Rob has a pattern? It was never intended as the kind of comic you give to someone and say, “you want to know what superheroes are all about? The Rebirth of DC Comics, is officially over. Of all the comics on this list, Darkseid War (consisting of Justice League issues #40 thru #50 and several one-shot tie-ins) directly impacts the end of The New 52 branding and relaunch of the DC universe. Have you ever seen the word "rebirth" used so many times in one article? Suicide Squad, Superman Reborn, The Lazarus Contract First Appearances: None Coming directly after the end of the DC You reading order is DC Rebirth. Issues #1 through #6 were collected in the Justice League: Origin volume, telling the origin story of the new Justice League of America -- consisting of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg, and Aquaman -- within the post-Flashpoint universe. Personally, I would have to highly suggest Batman, Supergirl, Superman, and Teen Titans' Dc Rebirth series'. He disappeared along with several other characters, who later returned in either the Convergence arc or in Rebirth. As rebirth is a series, this reading order contains comic book issues from DC’s entire rebirth library and often issues may not even relate to each other. The real clock was first set at 7 minutes to midnight, and has never been closer than 2 or further than 17. If you’re after a character specific reading order then this list may be confusing to follow and we may create separate guides for those. This is going to act as a sort of bridge between the two universes, and is sort of a very, very brief Flashpoint, Final Crisis, or Convergence type story. Even before the Flashpoint.”. But virtually the entire superhero comic industry (and several misguided movie efforts) have spent the last 30 years trying to duplicate these two works, bringing all of the violence and cynicism and often little else to the party. Unfortunately, readers weren't privy to the chair's answer. I’m about to outline years of “continuity”. DC Rebirth: What's Happend So Far! Which is why we put together a list of comics that can help answer some of the lingering questions new readers may have. Watchmen didn’t spring fully-formed from the minds of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Fans of The CW's The Flash will recognize some of them, notably Eobard Thawne aka Reverse-Flash being responsible for the murder of Barry's mother, Nora Allen. The problem with the DC Universe is external, and it’s a problem with writers, artists, editors, filmmakers, and audiences who have continued to chase the ever-shrinking shadow of two brilliant, but irreplicable works of comic art. The event follows the ending of The New 52, a publishing era that rebooted DC continuity in 2011 after the Flashpoint crossover. Rebirth is arguably the biggest event to occur since the first Crisis, because it doesn't reboot the DC universe, but rather relaunches it with multiple continuities consolidating into one universe. While the Convergence spinoff is not required reading, it is one of the few comics that will surely answer some lingering questions emerging from Rebirth. The New Age of DC Heroes is, even before all the books have released, a flop. Infinite Frontier #0 is the jam book spearheaded by Josh Williamson, but with samples from much of the rest of the DCU, functioning the same way that DC: Rebirth #0 did. All your nerdy needs from Intergalactic Comics. As a result, The New 52 is born by the merging of the DC, Vertigo, and Wildstorm comic timelines. Love and apathy. And I use that word far more loosely than you could ever imagine. This article will list several different types of reading orders to make it easier for people to purchase them quickly and cheaply (trade reading … The reset was explained by an event known as Flashpoint, in which Barry Allen’s attempts to prevent his mother’s murder unmade the timeline, and when it was all being put back together, everything was condensed. After the heavy tease in DC Universe: Rebirth #1, that Dr. Manhattan is likely responsible for the heroes' lost decade, some have posited that the Empty Hand from The Multiversity is, in fact, Manhattan himself. As I’ve outlined elsewhere, The New 52 was an attempt by DC Comics to appeal to new readers by jettisoning extraneous continuity in favor of a more movie and TV friendly approach. Along with numerous other changes, fans of the pre-Flashpoint Superman were irked by the incarnation. While Superman: Lois and Clark reveals what happened to pre-Flashpoint Superman during The New 52, The Final Days of Superman story arc shows what happens to the post-Flashpoint Superman. It wasn't until DC Universe: Rebirth #1 that Geoff Johns reveals what the chair told Batman -- that there are three Jokers. The Multiversity is a rather convoluted story arc (it is written by Grant Morrison, after all), with each issue being drastically different from the rest, so you may want to reread them a few times to fully grasp everything. Rebirth feels like an attempt to set things right. After weeks of speculation and teases, DC Comics has revealed its plans for its next major event: DC Rebirth. Watchmen was a self-contained graphic novel published by DC Comics (read: separate from DC Universe) as somewhat of a parody of the superhero genre. But it does very much feel like they’re saying what many readers have known for a long time: if all you got out of enormously impactful books like Moore and Gibbons’ Watchmen or Frank Miller, Klaus Janson, and Lynn Varley’s Dark Knight Returns was that superheroes need to be damaged and cynical and that violence must be realistic and bone shattering at every turn, you missed the point of the books entirely. The six-issue monthly series successfully reestablished Barry Allen as the Silver Age Flash in a world that had moved on since his noble sacrifice in Crisis on Infinite Earths. So if you were wondering about post-Flashpoint Superman's absence in DC Universe: Rebirth #1, The Final Days of Superman story arc should help absolve you of your bewilderment. The JSA’s first appearance came in 1940 in the pages of ALL-STAR COMICS #3, making them the very first official super hero team to exist. We have been treated to an endless procession of increasingly cynical and graphically violent narratives involving any number of mainstream superheroes, each one more watered-down than the last and more transparent in its attempts to “deconstruct” their characters in an attempt to ride on Rorschach’s coattails. It seems that at least this time around, Superman's death is indeed definitive, which is something fans probably could have deduced from the glaring title. The Flash: Jay Garrick Returns to DC Comics Continuity! To test the all-knowing Mobius Chair, Batman asks what the Joker's real name is, but he receives an answer he cannot fathom. It was a commentary on what was, in 1985, still generally a children’s medium, back when kids still actually bought mainstream superhero comics on a regular basis. Shortly after, DC revealed that in April 2017, all of the monthly titles releasing at the time (Batgirl, Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, Batman Beyond, Batwoman, Blue Beetle, Cyborg, The Hellblazer, New Superman, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Super Sons, Supergirl, Superwoman, Teen Titans, Titans, and Trinity), would increase their price to US$3.99, with All-Star Batman continuing to maintain its US$4.99 … Instituted at the start of the Atomic Age in 1947 by scientists, the real Doomsday Clock advanced or retracted based on how close to the end of the world they felt we were at any given moment. I think that’s an intellectual and emotional story. In 2013, DC animation launched a series of films that only just culminated with the new film Justice League: Dark Apokolips War.The 15 films in this new saga are adult-themed stories loosely based on the New 52 line of comics.Like that series, the DC Animated Movie Universe, as it’s been branded, ends with a high-stakes showdown between Darkseid and the Justice League. 10 Big Movie Scripts That Got Their Start on The Black List, 10 Comics To Read After DC Universe: Rebirth #1, but he receives an answer he cannot fathom, the former Kid Flash's potential return in Rebirth, before taking on the DC Extended Universe, MCU Villains, Ranked Least-Most Likely To Win The Hunger Games, The Sopranos: The Best Episode Of Every Season Ranked, According To IMDb, Disney Princesses: The 10 Best, Ranked By Style, Arrowverse: 5 Characters Who Got Fitting Endings (& 5 Who Deserved Better), Yu-Gi-Oh!

After a short run following The Flash: Rebirth, Barry goes back in time and saves his mother, Nora, from being murdered by the Reverse-Flash, and boy was that a terrible decision. You’d have to treat that very, very carefully. Similarly, Dark Knight Returns played with Batman’s history and iconography to tell a story steeped in the urban and political anxieties of the 1980s to return Batman to his vigilante roots, but it was also created to combat the prevailing pop culture perception of Batman as the Adam West TV series, which was inescapable in syndicated re-runs at the time.
