DC Comics is set to peel back the “Rebirth” curtain even further later this month, and has announced new details for its previously announced WonderCon event, which is planned to divulge further information on the publisher’s relaunched lineup — and the first word on creative teams for the June-debuting initiative.
The “DC Universe: Rebirth” event, open to press and WonderCon attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis, is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, March 26 at the Petree Hall at the Los Angeles Convention Center, as part of the first WonderCon held in LA. DC Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee are both scheduled to be in attendance, along with DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns.
While DC has announced its lineup of “Rebirth” titles — many of which will be shipping twice a month — the company has not yet announced any creative teams for the books. That will change at this event, with many of the still-unnamed creators planned to be there in person.
Fans at DC’s WonderCon event will receive a “DC Universe: Rebirth” lithograph illustrated by Lee. The event will be livestreamed on YouTube for those unable to attend in person.
The “Rebirth” relaunch starts with the “DC Universe: Rebirth” one-shot scheduled for release on May 25, written by Johns and illustrated by artists including Ethan Van Sciver, Gary Frank, Phil Jimenez and Ivan Reis.
