DC unveils Rebirth variant covers

I’m excited about DC Rebirth. The mandate to get back to basics should result in better stories that will more organically attract more long-term readers as opposed to a short-term boost from a relaunch. The more I read and see about Rebirth, I’m feeling more confident that DC leadership really gets it this time.

DC Entertainment shared some new details on the highly anticipated event as well as some stunning variant covers. I’m especially digging the Green Arrow (with Black Canary!!) and Green Lanterns covers.

DC Entertainment’s line wide titles relaunch, REBIRTH, starts this month with the DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH SPECIAL, written by Geoff Johns with an all-star roster of some of the greatest artists in the game – Gary Frank, Ivan Reis, Ethan Van Sciver and Phil Jimenez! This 80 page blockbuster, priced at $2.99, sets the stage for an all-new universe of epic superhero storytelling beginning in June, featuring the characters and titles that have made DC Comics a favorite of fans for 80 years!

In June, fans will see the first of 17 titles that will ship twice monthly, also at a new lower price of $2.99, beginning with a series of “REBIRTH” themed one-shots. Today, DCE is revealing for the first time the variant cover images that will be available for fans when these books go on sale:
