With DC Rebirth around the corner, Geoff Johns, DC’s CCO and writer of the upcoming mini-series, has stated that he will personally buy back any copies from fans disappointed with the story.
This news came from comicbook.com, in an interview with the longstanding writer. Johns stated in the interview, “If anyone wants to check out comics, wants to check out DC Universe Rebirth #1 and doesn’t like it, they can mail [the comicbook] to Warner Bros., to me, and I will send them a check, I literally will, for both postage and for the book. I will buy all these books back because I believe in this issue a lot. I think it’ll do very well. I hope it does well. But I seriously will; I’ll buy back this book.”
This will also be Geoff Johns’s last writing in the comic book as his recent promotion to co-heading DC’s film division, as well as running the television projects already on the air, will take too much time to attend to the writing of several comic book franchises. However, Johns is more than excited for this storyline, stating that this would help bring back the sense of hope and optimism missing from the comics following the New 52 introduction. This is also something he is hoping to fix in the DCEU as soon as possible.
