Comics To Rot Your Brain: DC Comics REBOOT coming in September 2011

What - DC Worry?

Howdy gang! Well, all the rumblings are true - the folks at DC Comics have decided to reboot their universe yet AGAIN (that's right kids, remember Crisis on Infinite Earths back in 1985?). This means that ALL your favorite books are getting their slates wiped clean, starting all over again at issue number 1.

Along with the reboot, DC Comics is also offering their titles in both digital and traditional formats (iPad fans rejoice)!

As expected, there are some fanboys that are crying in their Underoos, worried that the beloved continuity of their favorite titles such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the DC family of titles will either become completely convoluted or disappear entirely.

With that said, here are the boys from DC Comics: Dan Dido and Jim Lee, Bob Harras, Eddie Berganza, and Grant Morrison as they do their best to calm all your fears regarding the new reboot starting this September.
