If you’re anything like us, we know what you’re thinking. It’s a Monday. You’re tired from the weekend and facing a long week at work or school. Well, John Constantine is here to help. No, he’s not going to cast a spell to shift time so that the weekend arrives sooner (though he probably can). Rather, he’s the subject of one of our newest Rebirth playlists.
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 maybe you’re looking to add a new book 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.
One of the more interesting aspects of Rebirth is that while Wally, Bruce and the rest of the DC Universe may not know who’s been messing with their reality, readers do. Or rather, they do if they’ve read Geoff Johns’ DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH.
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.
For the past three years, Robert Venditti has taken Hal Jordan through a war with the New Gods, a self-imposed expulsion from the Green Lantern Corps and a mindbending battle with his former self, Parallax. But he’s about to take Hal somewhere that’s new for the veteran writer—the pages of a brand new Green Lantern comic.
This July will see the “Rebirth” of a new bimonthly Justice League featuring perennial favorites like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and the Flash, along with not one, but two rookie Green Lanterns. In fact, the only thing more impressive than the team on the page may be the team behind it. Written by current JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA writer and artist Bryan Hitch and drawn by Tony S.
Sam Humphries has made a name for himself in sci-fi comics, but he’s brand new to DC and the world of the Green Lanterns. But that’s okay, so are his two heroes.
