On Tuesday, we made the announcement in USA Today that DC was undertaking a historic renumbering of 52 superhero titles across the line, starting with JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 by our superstar creators Geoff Johns and Jim Lee.
We've spoken a lot about the editorial side of yesterday's historic announcement, with our editors Bob Harras and Eddie Berganza taking lead on things like new stories and finding the perfect writers to handle each of our books. I'd also like to call attention the visual side of this major initiative.
This year, change is in the air at DC Comics.
