    Default DC Looking To Relaunch Everything In September

    DC recently stated that Flashpoint #5 would be the only comic they would be shipping on August 31st from the entire company. So what's to follow it on September the 6th?

    Ten years after the world changed, looks like the DC world will be changing too. Bleeding Cool has already talked about a major renumbering of DC's books post-Flashpoint. And it looks like that will occur the first week of September, across the DCU board, with everything going back to #1.

    And the DC solicitations for August do seem to back that up. There's a lot of finality going around...
    Brightest Day Aftermath: The Search For Swamp Thing (3 of 3)

    The search ends here as John Constantine finally finds out Swamp Thing?s dark motives

    Action Comics #904

    Now it all comes down to a weakened Superman versus the monster known as Doomslayer in this, the epic finale of ?Reign of the Doomsdays?!

    Detective Comics #881

    This is it ? the finale so twisted, so shocking we can?t even begin to give away details here! Be there for the extra-sized conclusion of the acclaimed run by Scott Snyder, Jock and Francesco Francavilla.

    Batman Gates Of Gotham #5 (pushing through two issues in August)

    And in issue #5, it?s Batman vs. The Architect! The downfall of a major Gotham family! The betrayal of Damian Wayne! It?s all here in this final issue, plus the untold fate of Gotham City?s first Super Villain!

    Superman #714

    Superman hits Seattle for his last stop on his ?Grounded? walk across the country, and it is in that city where everything will come to a head!

    Superman/Batman #87

    It?s the brutal final chapter of ?The Secret?!

    Add that the Green Lantern books are in "epilogue" mode, the Wonder Woman finale has been pushed to August,

    Gotham City Sirens #28

    A secret that goes back to the very first issue of GOTHAM CITY SIRENS will be revealed at last!

    Birds Of Prey #15

    In the concluding chapter of ?War and Remembrance,? Lady Blackhawk and the original Phantom Lady are in the clutches of an enemy whose evil has lain dormant for decades!

    Superboy #11 (pushing through two issues in August)

    Then in #11 Jeff Lemire and Pier Gallo bring the saga of ?The Hollow Men? to its explosive conclusion!

    Supergirl #67

    But before she can leave, first she has to save the kids of the Silk Pajama Society, stop the bad guy from unleashing his devastating plan upon the world, and attend one last orientation session!

    Wonder Woman #614

    The all-new Wonder Woman reaches the end of her epic ?Odyssey? and comes face-to-face with the malevolent force behind it all!

    Adventure Comics #529

    The final, fatal battle for the Legion Academy freshman class. Is this the end of the Academy at Cosmic King?s hand?

    Legion Of Superheroes #16

    The finale to the battle with the Legion of Super-Villains!

    T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #10

    The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents make a final stand against The Iron Maiden in the present, as a bitter truth about the villainess and Colleen is revealed in a look back at the past. One of the most critically acclaimed books of the year reaches the shocking finale of its latest chapter
    With Green Lantern books on epilogue, Teen Titans getting two issues out to hit and #100 in August and even more "things will never be the same again" solicitations than usual as well, everything is lining up for a big big change in September.

    So why is everything going back to #1? And what does the end of Flashpoint mean for the rest of the titles?

    But remember, The Dark is coming...

    God I hope not. Bad enough marvel seems to be doing across the board in different ways. That includes what I am will probably happen Uncanny X-Men returning with a new #1 after Schism (?) Please dc be smarter then marvel.

    All relaunching the numbering will do is give readers a good place to jump off titles. Restarting everything with accessible, brand-new storylines on the other hand...

    Why can't they leave it alone these marketing tactics have a very temporary boosts in sales. Don't do a Marvel please DC!!

    Some renumbering is fine. Hell returning to original or added together numbering would be fine too.

    But reverting everything including books like Detective and Action that have never been rebooted or relaunched would be devastating for me.

    Honestly I'd be looking for dropping books rather than adding if this happens.

    BTW rich you missed out on including the JLA solicit that essentially says this will be the final issue of the current team.

    Wonder what this means for solicits. Next month Flashpoint is scheduled to come out the week before the solicits drop (just like this month). Which means we'll either get at least a partial reveal of what the DCU will be going forward, or we'll have a zillion solicits where everything is [Classified]. Which would make the heads of every retailer in the world explode simultaneously.

    What's the minimum amount of information they have to give in the solicits? Is it simple the title, page number and price? (Where's Bob when we need him?)

    As devastating as 9/11?

    I don't even read Action or Detective but the thought of renumbering on titles that have been going this long is preposterous.
