We know that you want more details on the creative teams and their title-by-title assignments for the launch. . (And by the way, let me just reiterate this point: this is the launch of the New DCU. It is not a “reboot.” I think you will soon discover why that is.)
This set my mind at ease

While I understand them having this Returnability program to help retailers recoup from ordered books that don't sell. It absolutely destroys the back issue market. While I understand not every retailer will qualify for this it will still suck so many back issues out of the market that when a new reader or collector does come into the market their going to find it extremely hard to find relatively new back issues.

And the complete SACRILEGE OF DESTROYING THE BOOKS!!!! That Is A Abomination !!

Not mine. I think he is avoiding the term "reboot" because it has a negative connotation, not because it isn't apt. We are hearing about too many changes for this to simply be a continuation of what we had before. It is, at the very least, a PARTIAL reboot, it seems to me....

I understand that but what I took from it was that this may simply be their Ultimate universe. At least that is what I hope

I have to agree. In recent times the term "reboot" has become loaded with the connotations that A: The previous was horrible or no longer desirable and needed to be wipe from history completely and B: This new version will be the end all new continuity. Hell even in the movie reboots, the directors and writers before haven't held back in bashing the older franchises.

Even if it is a reboot completely from ground one they'll never call it that, they'll give it a cutesy title like "Reimaging" but even so I think the claim a couple of pages back that it'll be an Abrams styled Star Trek redistribution of time is probably closer to the mark....

I can only imagine what will happen to Wally and Kyle due to the reboot, Good to see Guy comes out relatively unscathed

Posted on Twitter, A possible root for the DCU Ver 5.0.1

From JLA Vol 4 #0 2006



Quote:
Friend of the blog Joe Khachadourian reckons he may just have cracked the secret behind the DC Universe reboot announced early this week.

He’s tracked down this pic which he tells me is from 2006′s JLA Volume 4 #0, and says it would explain why DC are insisting this is the launch of the new DCU and not a reboot. Also, the heroes in the pic look younger, and that is a Jim Lee page. Lee is of course spearheading the new DCU.

Good spot Joe! Time will tell…

I would think not. I think they need to maintain focus on FLASHPOINT. And Jim did tell Ethan that the news rollout would be a gradual process.

Bleeding Cool said he would be on Superman starting with the #1 so who knows their reporting on this has been hit and miss.

Yea, they did. That article has already been wrong though (Fabien won't be on Teen Titans) so we really don't know what he'll be on.

I'll just watch the evolution of events and decide what to do after. Sometimes too much change is not so good.

I only wait to see what happens, and then make my mind after (Especially after browsing through several comics).

Just saw the JL pic on the first page on a different website. Why do Aquaman, Supes and WW look like Teenagers??

Because their going to be. Most of the main characters are being de-aged in the relaunch. So they will be more "Hip" and identifiable for today's techno-hippster crowd.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this. Azz is hit and miss miss miss with me so I'm worried, but Chiang is a good(unconventional) choice for art. I really want Wonder Woman to be a consistently good book. There's no excuse not to now.

I don't know why de-aging is big news now. The Silver Age started in the 50s. Keeping 'em young has been going on for a very long time.

If anything, he'll bring something fresh to the table. My big problem with Azz is I've never read anything of his with a strong core female character. In fact, while thinking on it I've never read anything of his when a female was presented in a positive light.

All my faith is with Azz though. The greatest there was, and greatest there ever will be.
