DC Turns the Dial Back To Zero
Once September rolls around, DC Comics is rolling out the #0 issues of all the 52′s. The zero issues aim to fill in any gaps in the character’s history. All of the issues will be stand-alone comics and could be interesting as collector items. According to DC Comics Editor-In-Chief Bob Harris, “Some issues will tell the origins of a character or a team, or in some case where an origin has already been told, they will fill in the blanks in terms of questions readers may have about the New 52 DC Universe.”
“Each of these issues promises to reveal something surprising.”
After September the issues will return to their regular numbered order. But that’s not all, DC will be including 4 new titles to their repertoire.
