Not the official title, mind you.  But, as previously speculated, FLASHPOINT IS PRETTY FRIGGIN BIG, and the entire DC Universe is going back to #1 starting this September, as officially revealed to USAToday.  The first book out of the gate?  Justice League #1, by the incredible team of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee.  Some important points?

  • This doesn’t sounds like a renumbering … it sounds like a RESTART.  Specifically noted is that Lee redesigned over 50 characters, and that characters will be reimagined with more modern takes.
  • Per Dan Didio, “This was a chance to start, not at the beginning, but at a point where our characters are younger and the stories are being told for today’s audience.”
  • DC is going LINEWIDE Day-And-Date digital distribution.
  • There will be 52 first issues in September.
  • DC has no current plans to undo this change.  This is for real.

I would like to note how young Superman looks (actually, they all do) in the graphic above from the new JL title.  Perhaps younger and unmarried?  Just sayin…suck it Wayne! 🙂

UPDATE: Full JLA art revealed, and more info on some of the new titles/creative teams here and here.
