Long long ago, August 2011 to be exact, DC decided to reboot their universe through the Flashpoint event, a storyline leading up to something big. And it was a very intriguing and exciting time! Then it happened... Someone spilled coffee all over DC's papers and they scrambled to get something together forgetting all the facts and historic storylines of iconic characters. (Disclaimer: This is not what actually happened, that we know of, but is the best interpretation for the New 52’s mishaps.)

The New 52 lost and gave characters new powers, backgrounds, or in some cases completely erased the character. I for one can’t stand the Superman/Wonder Woman love duo or some of the changes to the Lanterns or the creepy Joker face. I’ll admit, some of it was for the better and I understand why they did the reboot. It gets intimidating trying to jump into a new comic series when it’s on issue 300+ because you've missed out on so much and starting from issue 1 would be costly and time consuming.

Needless to say, DC has noticed an error in their way. Here’s the news you've all been waiting for: starting in June there will be no more New 52. Yep that’s right, it’s another reboot. Kind of. They will be continuing only 25 of their current titles, discontinuing all others (we can only assume that the writers will be planning to end their stories by that point). With all of these new cuts we will be getting 24 brand new comics, hopefully pulling back in some of those lost characters that have been missing since the reboot. For those now aware or are poor with math 25+24 does not equal 52, so we will no longer be seeing the New 52 logo plastered on everything. All the continuity will remain though, so this is what I’d consider a soft reboot or a course correction after you've realized you hit the iceberg. But again, on the plus side you won’t ever see the tacky New 52 logo anymore!

Isn't this how we all felt about the New 52 at one point?
