Wrapping Up Rebirth

Wrapping Up Rebirth

By Tim Beedle Monday, December 5th, 2016

For DC fans, Rebirth was THE event of 2016. A line-wide reset of many of DC’s ongoing titles that has brought new relevance and creativity to the entire DC Universe, Rebirth has driven discussion among fans since it launched at the end of May with Geoff Johns’ DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1.

Since then, Rebirth has expanded through a series of special one-shots which shepherded in a new era for DC’s core family of heroes. Going strong for half a year now, Rebirth has already brought us the return of the original Wally West, a reunited Titans, a “new” Superman, Dick Grayson’s return to Nightwing, the “death” of Tim Drake and much more. But if you haven’t been reading and would like to go back to the start, you might want to take a look at the DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH OMNIBUS.

This generous hardcover collection is thick, but far less heavy or unwieldy than your average hardcover omnibus, meaning that it’s not just a collector’s piece—it’s meant to be read. And there’s plenty to read here, starting with Johns’ now classic prelude and followed by all of the Rebirth one-shots, written and drawn by the likes of Tom King, Peter J. Tomasi, Greg Rucka, Joshua Williamson, Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Phil Jimenez, Doug Mahnke and more.

It’s a handsome gift, perfect for anyone who’s ready to dive into the world of ongoing DC comics, or devoted readers who’d like to commemorate one of DC’s most successful events with a beautiful, conversation-worthy collection. Best of all, it features all of DC’s major heroes, so no matter who your favorite character is, he or she likely has a story in it.

Look for the omnibus at your local comic shop or bookstore starting next week.
