52 was 5ish years earlier

Yes 52 was first. It rebooted almost the entire DC universe.

I think 52 started around 2011 and Rebirth started in 2016.

Ok, Thankyou guys. :slightly_smiling_face:


Reaganfan, here’s a little more in-depth information for ya:

I figure you’re asking about The New 52 and not the comic series 52, as that ran from May 2006 to May 2007.

The New 52 began in the last week of August 2011 and from a labeling standpoint (but not organizational) ended in the last week of March 2015 before Convergence began a week later in April of that year. The label was dropped due to the fact that there would be less than 52 books in the main line after Convergence concluded at the end of May '15.

Rebirth began on May 25, 2016. The Rebirth label began to be removed from the books at the end of 2017 to be replaced by the current DC Universe branding.

Hope that helps you :slight_smile:


Thankyou Vroom. :slightly_smiling_face:
