Just what is DC: Rebirth? Is there another DC comic universe in the works?

DC are laying down the gauntlet as far as the mystery factor goes, with their co-publishers both Tweeting out the same image, with the same hashtag, leaving fans to ask the question: is something big about to go down over at DC Comics? And by big, do we mean a complete relaunch big?
The rumours have been flying since Tweets emerged from DC’s co-publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, and the Internet is desperate to know what’s going on inside the DC camp. The Tweet looks like this…

Rebirth can mean a great many things, and DC – who are no strangers to multiverses – could well be hinting that another is in the works. Though nothing is concrete yet, as backed up by this Tweet by their Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns…


One possibility is that we will see a brand new line of first issues across the board, with the focus obviously on the characters that are finding popularity on film or TV, especially ahead of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and with the debut of Legends of Tomorrow. That’s just us speculating at this point, but who wouldn’t want a brand new Legends run, or all new, all mad Harley Quinn series?
Looking at DC’s recent history with the word Rebirth, Green Lantern’s Hal Jordan and The Flash’s Barry Allen were reintroduced through respective titles under the name “Flash: Rebirth” and “Green Lantern: Rebirth” mini series, both of them written by Johns. Could it be that we’re seeing a company wide relaunch, or a specific silver age hero return to the page?
Stay tuned for all the details as we get them.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
