Ten years after the world changed, looks like the DC world will be changing too. Bleeding Cool has already talked about a major renumbering of DC's books post-Flashpoint. And it looks like that will occur the first week of September, across the DCU board, with everything going back to #1.
And the DC solicitations for August do seem to back that up. There's a lot of finality going around…
