I am gonna be optimistic about this and hope that somehow things will turn out okay... But, deep down, I'm not hopefuly :oldyella:

Still no Red Hood or Red Robin solo books. *sighs* Nightwing, though! :D

Not really liking the sound of this at all tbh.
Ill reserve full judgement til creative teams are announced, but the initial lineup of titles is extremely dull and the double shipping on 50% of the line will i imagine, pretty much kill it for me regardless.

It sounds pretty exciting, really. They seem like they're really trying to fix things. So, I hope that really will be the case. Both previous "Rebirth" stories were great, so maybe this will be good too.

Some time ago someone wrote that Damian is going to lead the Titans... what was the source of the information? All I could find was a little article on Bleeding Cool.

This new move absolutely reeks of financial motivation and editorial incompetence. What is DC doing, honestly?

Nope, and I don´t even think he is their leader in the movie.

Here is the article I mentioned:

Are you refering to Teen Titans or Rebirth in general?

DC Comics Rebirth Special Will Have The Single Most Controversial Scene Since Dan DiDio Started
During his long run as head of DC Comics, co-publisher (previously Editor-in-Chief) Dan DiDio has never steered away from controversy.

From killing Sue Dibny and revealing a long-standing conspiracy of silence within the superhero community in Identity Crisis to rebooting the entire universe with the New 52, Dildo has overseen some of the most polarizing moments in DC's publishing history...

...and, apparently, there's more to come.

(I cant embed the video lol just go on the link above to watch it)

During a video interview with ComicVine about DC's forthcoming event DC Comics Rebirth, DiDio said that the project "is about getting back to the core of what DC characters are all about," and teased a "return to greatness."

While he said he believed fans would be pleased with May 25's DC Universe Rebirth #1, he also said "It's going to have what I believe is the single most controversial scene in DC Comics in all the time I've been there."


Yeah by controversial you mean it'll actually be good for once

Huh, I wonder how this will actually effect the way Dc comics will be written, especially Batman, since he is about the only hero at Dc whose own ideology gets constantly questioned by people.

Manapul having his own Trinity book sounds cool, as does Albuquerque on a gap-year Batgirl book as well as Rucka on Wonder Woman, but I still can't be bothered to pick up DC again.

The universe just doesn't feel as rich, y'know?
