Here are my most anticipated DC Rebirth comic books! When I started reading comic books, I mainly stuck with Marvel because they had more POC heroes like Sam Alexander and Miles Morales, but I always wanted to read DC. I started with Doctor Fate and Prez but those were relatively low-key. Now with Rebirth, I cannot wait to read more DC. So here we go!
The one I’m most excited for is Green Lanterns. When on the fringes of DC, I was most interested in the Green Lanterns because of Moviebob’s crazy Green Lantern comic videos and I love outer space stuff. This series also has two POC heroes, Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz, that I wanted to read but were very obscure and not featured at all. Sam Humphries is also one of my favorite writers (Weirdworld, Jonesy, Star-Lord) so I am very excited for this book. It’s a lot like Nova so I guess all you need to get me to read a comic is set it in space and have Latinx star, haha!
I was first introduced to Blue Beetle in the Batman the Brave the Bold and Young Justice cartoon but I wasn’t that familiar with the comic stuff so I will definitely be reading this.
I’ve never been a huge Batman guy but after @hellyeahteensuperheroes recommendation and award for the Robin: Son of Batman series, I have become a big Damian Wayne fan so Teen Titans and Super Sons not only sound super fun, but also feature a character I really like. I’m very excited for those two.
New Superman has my money purely based on the premise and Gene Luen Yang as the writer. He wrote graphic novels that were very helpful in helping me come to terms with what my race meant, despite me being Latino, and a Superman based in Chinese culture sounds super awesome and right up his alley. I’m staying in the dark on this one because I want to be wowed.
