DC Comics Is Rebooting Their ENTIRE Line-up

According to The New York Times, sometime last year, always-in-second-place DC comics said “screw it all” and decided to reboot every single one of their 52 comic book titles, from Superman and Batman to The Green Lantern and Justice League. And not only are they rebooting the story lines, but they’re re-starting the issue numbers! So Batman will see #1 issue again for the first time since 1941.

Not that this is DC’s first reboot: they famously cleaned up decades of story cruft in the ’80s with their Crisis on Infinite Earths reboot. But this is the first time they’re pushing the reset button on the issue numbers. Because they’re just getting lazy.
