    Default A general relaunch in January?

    Death Metal will end in December (Issue #6 and #7 will be released this month).

    Also, all Endless Winter event will happen on December.

    Do you think we will have a general relaunch in January?

    Given the fact that the January 5th final issue of Death Metal was solicited in the December Solicitations I’m going to say yes because what else is there unless they plan on just doing an entire filler month post the first week of January. I’m expecting new series will get #1’s and series they don’t want to end will get to continue with new creative teams.

    You're right. I only see that Death Metal #7 was in the solicitations for December, I should see the exact date.

    That said, I think they putting a comic released in January with the solicitations for December increase the possibility es of a general relaunch in January.

    Yeah, looks like new creative teams without a renumbering for Superman, Action Comics, Flash, Justice League, and maybe Nightwing (November wraps up the Ric stuff and December is a filler issue). New status quo for the Gotham books judging from the Detective Comics solicits (looks like they copied Champions, lol). Green Lantern will relaunch in March, and at some point between January and March I would also expect relaunches for the following: Teen Titans, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Suicide Squad, Aquaman, Green Arrow, Justice Society, Shazam, and a third Justice League book to replace Odyssey.

    I'm sure I must've missed something out.

    I mean, it's about time Action, Detective, Flash, and Wonder Woman had new #1's...

    The fact those four are on legacy numbering is exactly why they won't. Action and Flash will get new writers though.

    I think it is pretty possible Superman, Flash, Justice League, and Nightwing (if it gets a solo) have new #1. Not so much Detective Comics or Action Comics.

    I mean, the solicitations don't mention Final Issue, but it wouldn't be the first time solicitations don't announce final issue before a general relaunch (the solicitations for August 2011 and May 2016 didn't have Final Issue announcements either).

    Also, a new #1 will increase sales for a while.

    Flash has legacy numbering, so like Action and Tec, it would make sense for it to keep it's existing numbering.

    I get the feeling that March might be more likely. That's probably when we'll get new Green Lantern and it gives us time to allow the books that aren't finished their current runs or arcs yet to finish.

    No way there isn't a relaunch until March. After December, there are only 12 actual ongoings left. And several of them read like they are wrapping up without DC actually saying final issue.

    Probably because they'll still have an issue in January. They usually use Final Issue for anything that's stopping, even if it's just a few months before getting a new #1. I don't think Final Issue will have ever been used on a Superman or Batman solicit, for example, just before New 52 or just before Rebirth.

    I'm expecting some new #1s, hyping up of linewide new creative teams and directions, that sort of jazz. I'd like more change, for Superman in particular, but I'm doubting that'll be the case. I'll see what they have in store either way.

    My hopes:

    Let titles that are visible stay as they are. People who are willing to give a new Aquaman creative team a shot are going to do it whether you do a #1 or not.

    Don't put a big banner on it. Making a relaunch sound like an event creates expectations that are never met.

    Stagger the new, untried books so shops can order them without gambling on what will catch on and so can readers with buying them. Maybe Boom is a good recent example as a couple hot titles create buzz and allow expectations to grow, and launch a couple more a few months later.

    Think it's painfully obvious they're getting ready to relaunch. Won't be surprised if Fandome answers some of it.
