When most people hear the name Bryan Hitch, they likely think of impactful, eye-grabbing art on an epic scale. However, as anyone who’s been reading his JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA knows, Hitch is just as adept at scripting action-packed tales driven by a deep understanding of the characters within them. JLA launched a year ago with a thoughtful debut arc that found Superman and the Justice League battling an enemy who used faith and belief as a weapon—the Kryptonian “god” known as Rao.
We’re now a full month into Rebirth, and if you’ve been reading, you’ve gotten a pretty good taste of it by now. Whether you’ve spent the last month speculating about Gotham and Gotham Girl, wondering how Metropolis is going to solve its Supermen problem or swooning over Ollie and Dinah fighting alongside each other again, you’ve hopefully had a very fun and fulfilling month as a DC fan.
With Rebirth now in full swing and so many exciting new titles to try, we can’t blame anyone for needing a reminder of what happened in the last issue. Or perhaps you’re looking to add a new title to your list and need to get caught up on earlier chapters? Either way, we’re here to help. Every Tuesday, we’ll be recapping the prior issue of that week’s new Rebirth and Hanna-Barbera comics, as well as sharing our favorite moment. It’s a quick, easy way to ensure you’re up to speed and ready for New Comic Day.
Who said comics are a silent medium? This week we introduced five new “Rebirth” playlists to the official DC Spotify account—one for each of Wednesday’s new “Rebirth” comics. These playlists have been personally curated by members of the book’s creative team and in many cases are songs that either inspired them or that they feel reflect the look, tone and message of the book in some way.
You can gain immediate access to new playlists like these by following us on Spotify. Or if you’re interested in one playlist in particular, just click the below links.
