Doomsday Clock: DC Will Reveal the Truth Behind 'Rebirth' in May

DC's May 2019 solicitation for Doomsday Clock #11 teases that the penultimate issue will reveal the secrets behind 2016's DC Universe: Rebirth #1, which became a launching point for a series of stories leading up to the events depicted in Doomsday Clock.

With hints and references to the universe-altering New 52, the Rebirth one-shot written by Doomsday Clock's Geoff Johns concluded with the appearance of Watchmen character Doctor Manhattan, who was responsible for significant changes to the DC Universe including the removal of ten years from the collective DC heroes' history following 2011's Flashpoint. Other stories such as the Batman/The Flash crossover "The Button" continued to ask questions that prepared fans for Doomsday Clock, which introduced characters from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen series to the mainstream DC Universe.
