It all begins here. Do not skip to the last page. Do not let a friend or message board ruin this comic for you. The future (and past) of the DC Universe starts here. Don't say we didn't warn you!
THEY SAID IT: "Rebirth is about focusing in on the core of the character and their respective universe," says writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. "It brings back what has been lost, the legacy of the characters, the love and the hope of the DCU!"

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter May 26, 2016

    So why am I smiling like that 5 year old kid who used to get Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson SUPERMAN comics from the barber shop? Because, like that mysterious person in REBIRTH, I've seen the future. And everything is going to be all right. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Daniel Kalban May 26, 2016

    Lightning Strikes TwiceRebirth is definitely a step in the right direction. And as Johns rides out into the sunset (as his numerous duties, including heading up the DC Films department, will leave him little time to write), he should look back and smile. After all, he brought hope back to the DC Universe. This is a must read for fans old and new. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Leroy Dee May 26, 2016

    This book feels like a promise of good things to come. Will it deliver? Only time will tell, but as of right now I'm greatly anticipating the next title. Instead of shock value just for the sake of it (we ALL know what I'm talking about") DC simply delivers with a great story. It's very rare when an issue locks me in like this, but I've also learn to never underestimate Geoff Johns. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose May 20, 2016

    After reading DC Rebirth Special, it only feels appropriate to paraphrase a line from The Dark Knight: Geoff Johns is the hero we need, but not the one we deserve right now. It's easy to be a booster for a winning team - but it's much harder to generate the kind of enthusiasm and thoughtfulness Johns has when you know something's not right. This book in many ways is almost a kind of authorial activism against the perceived wrongs of an entire industry - if Johns has given his oversight over the rest of Rebirth the same level of care that he's given this special, this might finally achieve the potential of DC Comics that even the New 52 failed to deliver. There's something missing in the DCU, but Johns and company have undertaken one Herculean Hail Mary to bring it back. "I can't give up. I have to get back..." his narrator tells us. "So I can deliver a message...it's not over." This isn't a comic - this is a call to arms. This isn't just a Rebirth - it's a much-needed redemption. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Konrad May 25, 2016

    This issue was fantastic, truly one of the best comics I've had the pleasure of reading in recent history. With everything that it clearly sets up, with everything that it leaves in the dark, and all the cool sneak peeks it gives, it is something for New-52 fans, and for Die-hard old fans to love.

    CourtOfNerds - Grant Stoye May 25, 2016

    I can't thank DC enough for this book. Even if the next phase of Rebirth can't live up to this story (and Lord knows it will be nearly impossible to), this is a present for readers. This is the acknowledgement that long-time fans needed, the validation we wanted for our years of zeal. It's a book for fans, by fans, and so help me if this really is Geoff Johns last bit of comic writing, then by God did he hit a pitch-perfect note on the way out. Always leave them wanting more, and that's exactly what he did. Read Full Review

    Nerds On The Rocks - Earl Rufus May 25, 2016

    I've said it before, I'm a fan of the New 52 and what it stood for so for me this book wasn't as much an apology as it was a guideline for the exciting future course that has been plotted for the DC Universe. I'm stoked to see so many of the bread crumbs dropped in this book play out over the next few months and years. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero May 21, 2016

    There was a lot riding on Rebirth. It felt as if some books were in a holding pattern the past few months. We may have come to terms with certain changes in the New 52, but that doesn't mean they can't be tweaked. Geoff Johns is giving many fans what they want. New developments are being set up to set up to drive other titles forward to exciting places. This issue just really hit the right notes with me. There were some emotional surprises, and I didn't realize how much I had been missing certain characters. If this is any indication as to what we can expect in the Rebirth titles, it's going to be a fantastic time to read DC Comics. Read Full Review

    DC Universe: Rebirth #1 is a giant step in the right direction. The twists and turns were great. Bringing back the pre-New 52 Wally was the best thing that could have ever happened. This restored my faith in the DC Comic Universe as well as the DC Films Universe. With Geoff Johns steering the ship, I can feel confident that DC is in a good place going forward. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Bob Bretall May 25, 2016

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 30, 2016

    While the Watchmen integration is getting most of the mainstream press, I'm far more interested in the promise that Johns delivers with embracing the large corners of a wider DCU and giving readers more hopeful tales in the future. I know this is only a single issue, but after putting down DC Universe: Rebirth #1 I'm more hopeful than I've been about DC Comics than I have been since Bryan Q. Miller‘s Batgirl run. You lit the spark Mr. Johns, now lets hope the writers and artists to follow have a clear path about where to take this new version of the DCU (unlike what happened five years ago). You've delivered the best DC Comics' issue in years; don't screw it up. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 23, 2016

    If you go into this issue looking for big scenes with heroes and villains beating each other up with the fate of the Universe in the balance, then you will be upset.  The main villain is only hinted at and the issue tugs at the heartstrings instead of hitting you over the head.  Geoff Johns gives us a checklist of how far DC Comics has strayed from it's own legacy, apologizes for it and then shows us how it will be better.  The heavy lifting seems to be left for the individual Rebirth issues starting in June, but the groundwork is laid out and if this issue's mission is to make us remember what we loved about DC Comics in the first place ...mission accomplished!

    GWW - Casey Walsh May 23, 2016

    DC Rebirth #1 is an warm, heartfelt apologyto fans for the mistakes of erasing everything we loved. And while they acknowledge they made a mistake and are looking to right it, Johns and crew also look to the future and ask us to forgive, accept and move on. DC Rebirth #1 is the perfect comic for new and old fans alike, just like the master he is Johns expertly sinks in his hooks, reels us all back in and just like that we are 10 again, wide eyed and excited for the next adventure.

    DC Universe Rebirth #1 really did the unexpected and some may even say the impossible: it built excitement for the future of DC Comics. This comic was everything you want to see from a great comic and the hype surrounding this title release really built this book up. Impressively, the book certainly lived up to any and all expectations surrounding it and will certainly change the way DC is looked at in the comic world. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - Critical Blast Staff Jun 1, 2016

    DC does a terrific job getting everything back on track here. The return of a lot of characters and elements that have been missing from the DC Universe for far too long (Wally West, JSA, Legion, and a sense of hope). While there were a lot of artists on this one, they still managed to create a beautiful and consistent book, under the careful writing of Geoff Johns. And you get an 80-page giant for 3 bucks. Hard to complain about anything in this one. Read Full Review

    With this being said, DC couldn't have chosen a better name than Rebirth since that is literally what this relaunch is doing " it is breathing new life into the stagnant New 52. There are countless questions going forward, but that is the case in any comic relaunch for the Universe. It will be exciting to see where this goes, but for right now DC is on the right path.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas Jun 1, 2016

    DC Universe Rebirth #1is a manifesto, an opening barrage, and a masterpiece. In the return of Wally West and the introduction of Doctor Manhattan as the antagonist (not, he says, the villain) who stole time from the DC Universe and infected it with darkness, Geoff Johns has taken the gamble of his career. Given that theRebirthsaga is set to play out over the next two years, it will be quite a while before we know if he is a victor or not. But for sheer daring, Johns belongs in the company of the heroes whose stories he pens. Read Full Review

    I have no idea if "Rebirth" is going to work (New 52 certainly didn't). I applaud the change in tone, I think they're on the right track - but I don't like the idea of twice-monthly comics (even at $2.99 per issue), and some of the ads in the back of the issue leave me cold. But others show great promise! Read Full Review

Let's hope they don't waste it all with some cheap trick, or a sudden change of heart if the sales figures aren't what they expected in a few months. This could be a really exciting time to be into DC. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Derek Spicer May 31, 2016

    I think this is a wonderful develop for DC Comics. I also appreciate the idea DC is willing to take a shot at itself for the generally not well-received New 52 line. This will give them the perfect chance to correct any mistakes or unpopular elements of the New 52 while still holding onto some of their more popular elements. I'm really excited to see what DC has in store for us with all the new Rebirth issues. Most of all though, I'm really happy Wally West, the real Wally West, is back. In fact, I found this entire issue so thrilling I subscribed to several of the various DC character issue series just to make sure I don't miss anything. I never got into the New 52 all that much, but I'm completely sold on Rebirth. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Matt Santori May 24, 2016

    No, the final verdict, like with any review, has to be on story, on art, on the pages in front of me and the experience I had as a reader. And that, unequivocally, was supreme. Whatever happens next, whatever potential or danger that comes with where this comic leads us, at its root DC Universe: Rebirth #1 delivered a magnificent and moving comic book story by Johns, with cohesive, compelling line art by Jimenez, Van Sciver, Reis, and Frank. The experience of this book is one I will remember for years to come, and hopefully will lead to a new era of love for comics that will take me into my next 33 years as a fan. And if it doesnt, and Johns swan song is just that, Ill cherish it for that alone. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 20, 2016

    For all the great stories that came out of the New 52, there was always something about this version of the DC Universe that didn't sit right. DC Rebirth manages to break the fourth wall and turn that idea into a story. This one-shot is a wonderful showcase for what this universe can be when it's executed properly. It's both a fitting farewell for Johns and a worthy template for DC's new wave of comics to follow. Reading Rebirth feels like coming home again. Read Full Review

    Nerdist - Eric Diaz May 25, 2016

    Geoff Johns and company have created a small miracle with Rebirth, and it's a shame that it will be his last comic book work for a while (Johns is off to do for the DC movie universe what he's done for the comics: bring back optimism and hope. I wish him all the luck). The final two-page spread by Ivan Reis for Rebirth shows the heroes of the DCU posed heroically, and more importantly, smiling. That image sums this book up in a nutshell. How much mileage you get out of this comic depends on how invested you are in the DC Universe, but this fan is really excited for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk May 26, 2016

    How DC pivots and proceeds forward from this moment is vital. This is a defining moment for DC Comics. They can either someone fill Johns' shoes and take his blueprint mapped out in DC Universe: Rebirth #1 in order to rebuild the company and their line of comics. Or, they will flounder without Johns and fail to follow his blueprint in DC Universe: Rebirth #1 and continue to lose dollar share and market share to Marvel on their slide to irrelevancy. The next couple of years should be interesting. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 25, 2016

    Is that optimism I feel? Hope? Potential? I've felt it before but there's that sense about Rebirth that they have figured it out, that they are trying to do a course correct here. Not just a post-Flashpoint course correct but an industry-wide course correct going back to the darkening of the 80's comics. The comics industry as a whole is bigger and wider now than it ever was before in terms of the content produced and taking the chance, the risk, of trying to infuse more hope and optimism into the superhero side is hugely appealing.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton May 23, 2016

    If we're lucky, "DC Universe: Rebirth" #1 will truly herald what the title suggests. It's a very loud, almost forceful attempt at a course correction; as readers, we're told in no uncertain terms that the path of dark superheroes is detrimental. Based solely on the effort seen here, though, the future looks genuinely bright. Over the last few years, so many of DC Comics' big events comics have signaled doom and gloom; here, however, we're told that the only way to defeat a character known to personify dark and gritty storytelling is for everyone else to rediscover a brighter, more hopeful attitude. Here's to hoping it sticks, but -- judged solely on what we get here -- Johns, Frank, Van Sciver, Reis, Jimenez, Prado and Santorelli have done a good job of making that point. Fingers crossed, but this could really be the rebirth readers have wanted for years now. Read Full Review

    Although this wasn't a summer-long mini-series likeFlashpoint, it certainly did its job. Johns had 80 pages to tell his story and I feel this not only leads into what we can look forward to this summer, but also plants seeds that may not sprout for another few years. Big picture scenarios often lead to very rewarding conclusions and I can't imagine anyone not wanting to see where it all leads. Read Full Review

    Spartantown - Enrique Rea May 26, 2016

    At the very least, DC acknowledges there's a problem with the current tone of their books. The sales charts tell a grim story, continually coming in second to Marvel. This is an attempt to do a course-correction that hopefully ushers in a more successful era than the 'New 52' did. 'DCYou' was honorable but half-baked and not well supported. 'Rebirth' is off to a good start and will be judged on the books that follow. We've got our fingers crossed. Read Full Review

    Cynics will call “DC Universe: Rebirth” an overstuffed mess but it makes promises that the New 52 era never did. It teases the return of things that long time readers loved and it makes it clear that the old and new can coexist. In this regard it might be a bit safe but after a few years of not living up to expectations, being safe isn't exactly the worst thing to be. I'm excited for what's to come but with most things, I still have my fears.

    There are some encouraging teases about where the DC Universe can go as they move into this relaunch, but on its own, DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH #1 is a largely confusing mess that doesn't actually have a story to tell. Where other books lack purpose, this book is all about purpose, but lacks an actual story vehicle in which to tell it. What we're left with is a PSA from DC alerting all new readers that they are most certainly not welcome in the new DC Universe. This is a rebirth, a universe born again, and if it has to shove out the old one in the process, then it is all the better for it. Read Full Review

    As demonstrated by the emotional reunion between Barry and Wallyeasily the most heart-warming moment of Rebirth and beautifully drawn by Phil Jiminezmost fans are willing to forgive almost anything to see their favorites on the comics page once more. But with each rebirth, we run the risk of seeing an incarnation of the DCU that, even as it runs head first towards nostalgia, strays further and further away from what once made it such a fun place to visit. In Buddhism, we learn that the endless cycles of rebirth can only be stopped by insight and the extinguishing of desire. At what point will DC find enlightenment and finally end its samsara?
