After numerous efforts to make 70 years worth of material more approachable and inviting for younger audiences, DC Comics has announced its historic renumbering of the entire DC Universe line of comic books with 52 first issues going back to #1, by August 31st. Though rebooting titles is a common occurrence in the comic book industry as X-Men has done it on several occasions with its secondary titles over the years, this is the first time that a major company has updated their entire line at once.

While significant, the decision doesn’t mark a complete departure from years of developing characters and plots; Dan DiDio, one of the DC co-publishers, explains:

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.

DC Comics has also announced that on August 31st, they will release all of their superhero comic book titles digitally the same day as in print.
