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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
