DC Comics Relaunch

DC comics is making big changes to the DC Universe in September 2011 by restarting 52 of their titles.  Popular comic books like Superman, Batman, Green Lantern and Justice League will be going back to issue number 1.  The new versions are supposed to introduce readers to a more modern and diverse DC Universe and the writers will change some of the characters’ origins stories. Starting at the beginning will also give readers that are new to comic books an opportunity to experience a series without having to catch up on years of back issues.  If you don’t already read comic books, this relaunch would be a perfect time to start.

Here is a video from DC comics describing the changes:
