Series: Rebirth Round Up

Rebirth Round Up: Everything from December 6

The Rebirth era is over, though my column will remain titled such for alliterative purposes. With the end of the Rebirth branding comes a new cover dress for DC Comics. We see the return of corner boxes, which honestly, is an iconic look. Titles that are canon will have DC Universe branding, while titles that aren’t will have DC Comics branding. Each book is also given its own snazzy logo in the corner box. I took umbrage with one title’s logo, but not enough to prevent it from being this week’s Rebirth Royalty.

Rebirth Round Up: August 9

Welcome to the first Rebirth Roundup! Here I’ll do quick reviews of most DC Comics published books. I’m not entirely caught up on everything, but am working on that front, so some titles are not included yet. But as soon as I can I’ll be reviewing everything, right here, every week. That said, there will be some spoilers (and not just in Detective Comics), but I will try to keep them minimal. I will also make a Rebirth Royalty pick of the week–this week’s pick being Mister Miracle by Tom King and Mitch Gerads. 👑REBIRTH ROYALTY👑 Mister Miracle #1...

Rebirth Roundup: Everything from August 16

In this week’s Rebirth Roundup we have a sexy Riddler, three fascist futures, and a tribute befitting a King. There was no Scooby-Doo this week, so there will be less punning in this column. No Detective Comics this week either, but there will still be Spoilers. (Okay, I swear that’s the last time I use that joke). This week I’m happy to say that the Rebirth Royalty is The Sandman Special. 👑REBIRTH ROYALTY👑 The Sandman Special #1 Written by Dan Jurgens and Steve Orlando Art by Jon Bogdanove and Rick Leonardi Cover by Paul Pope I have to confess,...

Rebirth Roundup: Dark Nights: Metal #1

The Black Album. The Number of the Beast. British Steel. Ace of Spades. Back in Black. Every so often, there comes a piece of art that becomes so seminal it almost defines the artist. By first indication, Dark Knights: Metal will be that for the team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. While it is certainly a part of DC Rebirth, and absolutely deserving of this week’s Rebirth Royalty, it’s so important to the overall DC Universe that it didn’t seem fair to cover it in brief during the round up. There will certainly be major spoilers in this...

Welcome back to Rebirth Roundup! This week we have lots of Batfamily guest spots in books that aren’t their own. Batman’s in Blue Beetle and Suicide Squad, and Nightwing’s in Batgirl. There are spoilers below, especially in this week’s Rebirth Royalty, Detective Comics.
