People will tell you DC Comics isn’t publishing “Rebirth” anymore, and I will tell you they are chumps 🙂 Like it or not, this is the Rebirth era of DC, and we enter year four with some major events, a linewide theme, and the return of some iconic DC characters.
Rebirth year three was defined by creative changes across major titles, including Scott Snyder on Justice League, G.Willow Wilson on Wonder Woman, and Brian Michael Bendis on Superman. At launch, year four continues building on those creative directions, including the Bendis-driven events like Event Leviathan and the return of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Likewise, Scott Snyder’s Justice League is kicking off a linewide Year of the Villain throughout all DC comics.
Below you’ll find a guide to the comics of Rebirth Year Four, broken out into sections that I’ve been tracking since Rebirth Year One!
