UPDATE 5:55 PM PT: DC Comics has sent an updated version of Batman's "Rebirth" look, designed by Greg Capullo and illustrated by Jim Lee, Scott Williams and Alex Sinclair.
DC Comics' "Rebirth" initiative is set to launch in late May starting with the "DC Universe: Rebirth" one-shot written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Gary Frank, Ivan Reis, Phil Jimenez and Ethan Van Sciver. "Rebirth" aims to bring back some of what's been missing from DC's recent output -- though exactly what elements and which characters are coming back remains mostly a mystery -- and relaunch every series with a new #1, except for "Action Comics" and "Detective Comics," which are returning to their old-school numbering (starting with #957 and #934, respectively).
The "Rebirth" relaunch also brings refreshed looks for many of DC's major characters, including Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman -- and CBR has a look at annotated character designs by artists Jim Lee, Tony Daniel, Pat Gleason, Brad Walker, Jonboy Meyers & Jorge Jimenez; covering the aforementioned iconic trilogy plus Aquaman, Green Lantern Jessica Cruz, the Super Sons and Harley Quinn & Killer Croc of the Suicide Squad.
DC Comics' "Rebirth" starts with "DC Universe: Rebirth," scheduled for release on May 25.
