Today marks the day DC Comics starts all over. Today Wednesday August 31, 2011 is DC Comics reboot called the NEW 52. Every one of their titles is starting over with issue #1. This is the best time to dive into a certain DC comic book that you have been waiting to check out. All the new 52 are available in print as well as digitally. So this means no matter where you live you can purchase any of these new titles. And the biggest title of the whole re-launch has to be Justice League #1. JL has two of the biggest names working on this book. Jim Lee and Geoff Johns team up to tackle the Justice League. Jim Lee’s artwork with Geoff Johns great writing could mean great things to come. Time will tell how well this comic and all the other DC comics are received. Here are two other big books getting some star power: Wonder Woman and Action Comics. Wonder Woman is being written by Brian Azzarello who is the writer of the gritty crime tale 100 Bullets on Vertigo. Then you have Action Comics written by the madman of comic books himself Grant Morrison. Grant Morrison brings new life to Clark Kent aka Superman. Will this HUGE reboot work for DC? It already has in this short amount of time. Many big news websites have been talking about this from CNN to MSNBC, that kind of coverage is not only great for DC Comics, but for comic books in general. It is being reported that DC expects to sell over 200,000 copies of Justice League #1 alone. So they are hoping for a similar effect on all their other titles.

If you are looking for local area comic book stores to pick up these brand new DC Comics, I would suggest Collectors Corner and Third Eye Comics. These two stores are two of the better comic book stores around Baltimore and it is always a good thing to support local businesses. So go out to either or both of these shops for the NEW DC comics.
