DC Universe Rebirth The Deluxe Edition by Geoff Johns

I have to say from the outset that I am not a huge DC fan but these rebirth/reboot issues can come up with some quite interesting stories. The fact that DC and Marvel do them regularly to mix up the heroes, their universes and to bring back the dead, can in fact get quite annoying - making it difficult to feel invested in any of the characters in any way.

Here we have an oversized format printed on matt finish paper with a few extra covers, etc. A very good looking graphic novel. As an introduction to the Rebirth saga and as a teaser it works. The artwork is great and you get enough of the story to make you want to continue with the series.

The story :
Something is wrong with the timeline. The Flash, Wally West, has been forgotten and a large period of time is missing, also there are references to The Watchmen so expect some sort of overlap into that universe.

Looks interesting but it all depends on how quickly the story progresses in the other graphic novels to whether it will keep my interest. Worth a look.
