DC’s REBIRTH continues to bring amazing new stories of the DC Universe to fans, igniting the heart and soul of our favorite superheroes.

Moderator Jason Inman from DC All Access talked with the talent of these fascinating books and discussed their ambitions to bring new life to these characters, and the inspirations behind them.

BATGIRLs latest writer Hope Larson and artist Rafael Albuquerque talked about taking Babs Gordon on a new journey, leaving Burnside for Asia, and the challenges of adapting to a new environment. The first of these monthly books will debut next Wednesday, July 27.

The stalwart BATMAN BEYOND team of writer Dan Jurgens and artist Bernard Chang were on hand to discuss the upcoming Rebirth issue, the return of original future-Batman Terry McGinnis and what will happen to Bruce Wayne in the conclusion of the current series. BATMAN BEYOND: REBIRTH #1 will be hitting shelves on September 28.

SUPERGIRL will soon be flying into our hearts with SUPERGIRL: REBIRTH #1 coming this August.  Writer Steve Orlando tells more about Kara Zor-El, and her quest to restore her lost powers once and for all. This book will debut on 8/17. Orlando was also on hand to discuss his recently announced miniseries MIDNIGHTER AND APOLLO, which debuts October 5.

SUPER-SONS may not be coming to comic stores until 2017, but the fans were no less thrilled to hear more from artist Jorge Jimenez and his fresh take on the future Supers of the world.

And the TEEN TITANS are back! Artist Jonboy Meyers shows off the favorite group of friends recruited by Damian Wayne including Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and the new Kid Flash! TEEN TITANS: REBIRTH #1 will be out September 28.

Fans at the DC ALL ACCESS PANEL earlier today also got to hear from writer John Semper Jr., discussing his take on the cybernetic hero CYBORG, debuting September 7 with his own Rebirth one-shot.

And fan-favorite HARLEY QUINN writer Amanda Conner was on hand to describe the wacky, often psychotic, certainly loveable, daddy’s little monster Harley Quinn. She’s got a heart of gold, but its misplaced half the time. HARLEY QUINN #1 hits shelves August 3.
