WTF Moment Of The Day | DC Comics To Restart The Entire Line | Comics

Blame it on Jim Lee.

Granted he is one of the leading and withstanding artist to come out of the 90's, but when Mr. Lee was given the job of redesigning 50+ major characters in the DC Universe, who'd have known it would be with a revamp of the ENTIRE UNIVERSE. Well it is DC. They had 2 Crisis storylines with over 600 different parallel dimensions. A Kingdom Come Universe where the world was filled with Meta-Humans. And countless incarnations of the Solomon Grundy (Fave Grundy Vid 1, Fave Grundy Vid 2 ) within the same universe.


Official DC Comics Press Release

On Wednesday, August 31st, DC Comics will launch a historic renumbering of the entire DC Universe line of comic books with 52 first issues, including the release of JUSTICE LEAGUE by NEW YORK TIMES bestselling writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns and bestselling artist and DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee. The publication of JUSTICE LEAGUE issue 1 will launch day-and-date digital publishing for all these ongoing titles, making DC Comics the first of the two major American publishers to release all of its superhero comic book titles digitally the same day as in print.

DC Comics will only publish two comic books on August 31st: the final issue of this summer's comic book mini-series FLASHPOINT and the first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE by Johns and Lee, two of the most distinguished and popular contemporary comic book creators, who will be collaborating for the first time. Together they will offer a contemporary take on the origin of the comic book industry's premier superhero team.

BTW... Wonder Woman's pantsed costume from the would be tv series would have reflected her new one in the comic book ->
