I get if it was just comics that are in the DC mainstream universe, I mean don't they have other kinds of comics they con get out so they don't see a huge dip in sales?
No I was yelling cause I was going to go research, not telling you too. I know you old people don't do much.
Did they reboot EVERYTHING though? It looks like even Action Comics is going back to #1.
What? Speak up.
In 1986, after Crisis on Infinite Earths, DC Comics revamped the history of Superman (as well as most of their other heroes) and retold his origin in the miniseries The Man of Steel.
At the same time, Superman (vol. 1) was renamed Adventures of Superman with issue #423, and continued with the original numbering. Superman (vol. 2) was launched with a new #1, and World's Finest Comics was cancelled with issue #323.
In 1991 a fourth ongoing Superman title was launched: Superman: Man of Steel (not to be confused with the previously mentioned miniseries with a similar name). It ran concurrently with Action Comics, Superman (vol. 2), and Adventures of Superman for 136 issues before being cancelled in 2003. Shortly after its cancellation, Superman's origin was updated once again in a 12-issue miniseries Superman: Birthright.
At last, DC Comics has shown their hand after weeks of speculation. The rumors of a massive DC Universe reboot have been confirmed. In September, comic fans will be the recipients of 52 #1 issues as the entire line of DC Universe titles gets a relaunch. Everyone from Superman to Booster Gold will be getting a revamp, which includes redesigns and a "younger" continuity.
DC Comics co-publisher Dan Didio told USA Today, "We looked at what was going on in the marketplace and felt we really want to inject new life in our characters and line. This was a chance to start, not at the beginning, but at a point where our characters are younger and the stories are being told for today's audience."
