I decided today to jump on into Rebirth. I’m not sure to what extent I am going to immerse myself yet but I decided to start at what seemed to be a good starting point. The one shot DC Universe Rebirth. This comic was released on May 25th, 2016 and was written by Geoff Johns. I have been excited to see what this had in store for DC for quite some time but haven’t jumped in until today. So let’s jump in.
I jumped right into the pages and was almost immediately greeted by Superman, Batman and quickly after that The Flash. I was immediately impressed by the artwork of Ethan Van Sciver, Ivan Reis, Gary Frank and Phil Jimenez. I quickly gobbled up Chapter 1: Lost and was in love immediately. From the internal monologue of Wally West to the creativity of using the Flash Point was brilliant. I knew right then I was hooked already.
The second chapter just kept getting me deeper and deeper immersed into the story, or the Microverse. I don’t want to reveal too many spoilers in this particular blog but the story just keeps getting better page after page. I soon reached the end of Chapter 2, yearning for more! Chapter 2 was called ‘Legacy’.
Without slowing down I jumped head first into Chapter 3. And as quickly as it started chapter 3, titled ‘Love’, had ended. We got to see Aquaman in this chapter as well as Wally West finding Linda only to find out she didn’t remember him! So is he lost forever? What’s going on?! Let’s keep reading!
I jumped quickly into Chapter 4. I will say it straight up, chapter 4 actually hit at the heart strings. I thought Wally West was a goner and when Barry saved him it really made my eyes watery. And at the end of this chapter we get to see Batman again, we are learning more about the ‘forgotten’ time. The story is getting deep, The Watchmen. That’s all I will say about that for now, but THE WATCHMEN!
Then I quickly (and sadly) jumped into the Epilogue. It had a strong few pages to solidify The Watchmen and created even more intrigue and mystery!
In conclusion, if you haven’t read this comic, you should, now. I have put a link at the bottom of this blog that you can click and buy it for only $2.99 from Amazon/Comixology. That is an amazing price for a comic, and this is a very long one too. I’m not sure how many pages there was but it was probably twice or three times the size of a normal comic. Another great thing about buying it from there is you can read it immediately. No waiting for it to come in the mail! If I understand correctly DC is going to price all the comics across the board $2.99 now, which is amazing. In any case, here is the link to purchase your copy!
