pic Relaunch? Reboot? Is there a difference?

In case you haven't heard: DC Comics announced they are renumbering their comics line starting with Justice League #1 from Geoff Johns and Jim Lee - 52 of them.

I suppose if DC was "rebooting" their entire Universe, everything that came before would be nixed.

That doesn't appear to be the case, as CBR reports the new Green Lantern #1 will still be by Geoff Johns, and the effects of the previous GL events will still stay in place.

However, Dan DiDio stated the characters are going to be younger. How this is all going to fit, is anybody's guess.

But here is some info on the relaunch.

Superman Info: Grant Morrison on new Superman; George Perez and Rags Morales may be involved; marriage will be nixed; romantically involved with Wonder Woman

Green Lantern Info: Geoff Johns still on new GL #1, previous big events still in place; New 'Green' Lantern team book with current GLC artist Tyler Kirkham on board, consists of one member from all the different colored lanterns


From CBR:

Birds of Prey #1 - Writer Gail Simone will not be a part of this.

Teen Titans #1 - Written by Red Robin scribe Fabian Nicieza.

Justice Society of America #1 - Will not involve current JSA writer Marc Guggenheim.

Wonder Woman #1 - Nothing from JMS' WW will be a part of this.

Aquaman #1 - Already announced by Johns and Ivan Reise.


From Bleeding Cool:

Adventure Comics #1 starring Deadman - wonder if he will be a White Lantern?

A new Omac #1 and Legion Lost #1

Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo) apparently dropped from a new Firestorm book.

Hawkman #1 - Reportedly will be drawn by "Batman & Robin" and "Outsiders" artist Philip Tan.

Noticeably absent is any news of the new Batman.

I'll update as news becomes available.


Update: Full Justice League image revealed

Update: USA Today posted a second article; among of which it states the costumes are getting a makeover; new creators and creative teams are being brought on; there will be a diversity in the products they sell

"In addition, three-quarters of the creative teams will be shuffled around — series that are successful and writer/artist combinations that work well together won't be tweaked too much," said DiDio.

Update: Green Lantern has no power ring in the image! (Thanks to Darth_Andrea for that one!) Simple mistake? Or a sign of what's to come?!
