Before a packed house of media and WonderCon fans, DC Entertainment showed off its plans for the DC Universe: Rebirth relaunch at a special event held in Petree Hall in the Los Angeles Convention Center. In addition to the more than 500 fans jammed into the hall, the event was also streamed live on the DC Entertainment YouTube channel to a worldwide audience online. Hosted by DC All Access co-host Tiffany Smith, a mix of DCE executives were on hand to give fans the lowdown on this brand new universe, along with a stellar lineup of writers and artists for the first wave of titles launching in June.

DCE Co-Publishers Dan DiDio and Jim Lee greeted the audience with an overview of the major motivation and themes behind the Rebirth initiative; building on the accomplishments and fan appeal of The New 52 relaunch of 2011 and returning to the essence of the stories and characters that have made the DC Comics imprint a favorite of fans for the last 80 years.

For fans that weren’t able to attend WonderCon in person, or catch the livestream, they will be able to catch up on all the news and see the Rebirth press conference in its entirety on the DC Entertainment YouTube channel.
