DC Comics has announced plans for a "deluxe" printing of DC Universe: Rebirth #1 with new cover art by Gary Frank and in a square bound format - and pushing the price up from the original $2.99 to $5.99. DC has scheduled this new deluxe edition for June 8.
Here is the new cover, with the outstretched hand detailed in what seemingly alludes to Dr. Manhattan:
With the first edition of DC Universe: Rebirth #1 sold out on the distributor level, some fans who might have missed the original one-shot might be surprised when this new printing rings up on the cash register at double the price of the original. Despite it's 80 pages, the original was sold for $2.99 in keeping with the publisher's public stance of keeping the price point on all of its books down to $2.99.
Now it's just a matter of time before the Steve Rogers: Captain America #1 reprint is announced.
