Comic News: DC Comics Ending The New 52

Don’t worry, we are not getting another reboot.  However, the New 52 imprint that has tagged all of DC Comic’s series will be going away as of this coming June according to a press release today.

Coming out of their next big event, Convergence which finds Braniac bringing together different universes from the DC’s multiverse, there will be 24 new series launching and 25 remaining ongoing series that will retain their original numbering from the start of the New 52.

“This heralds in a new era for the DC Universe which will allow us to publish something for everyone, be more expansive and modern in our approach and tell stories that better reflect the society around us,” said DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio in a press release. “Whether you’ve been a DC fan your whole life, or whether you are new to comics – there will be a book for you beginning in June.”
