The different paths we take define our lives. Twenty-three years ago, a simple walk home changed mine in ways I couldn’t imagine.

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 previous 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, our new “Reader Recaps” should 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.
