DC Comics has announced a decision to renumber the entire DC Universe line of comic books and release 52 first issues beginning Aug. 31.
In addition, DC plans to launch day-and-date digital publishing for all these ongoing titles, making it the first publisher to release all of its superhero comic book titles digitally the same day as in print.
Under the direction of editors Bob Harras and Eddie Berganza, storylines will be re-imagined. With the leadership of Mark Chiarello and Jim Lee, logos and costumes will be tweaked and updated.
Justice League issue 1 will be the first reboot to be released, with the other 51 following over a five-week period.
