DC Announces Post-“Flashpoint” Details, Relaunches All Titles

DC's Starting All Over "AGAIN"In the wake of its summer “Flashpoint” event, DC Comics will re-number its entire superhero line, debuting more than 50 first issues in September while introducing “a more modern, diverse DC Universe.”

The sweeping line-wide change debuts on Aug. 31, when the pubisher releases just two comics — the final issue of “Flashpoint,” and the first issue of “Justice League,” under the new creative team of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. According to DC’s Source blog, the premiere of “Justice League” will also mark the beginning of same-day digital release for all of the ongoing titles, “making DC Comics the first of the two major American publishers to release all of its superhero comic book titles digitally the same day as in print.”

USA Today announced that the changes include costume redesigns for more than 50 superheroes, sprearheaded by Lee, intended “to make characters more identifiable and accessible to comic fans new and old.”

“We looked at what was going on in the marketplace and felt we really want to inject new life in our characters and line,” Co-Publisher Dan DiDio told the newspaper. “This was a chance to start, not at the beginning, but at a point where our characters are younger and the stories are being told for today’s audience.”
