#DC News! The Post-Crisis Pre-New 52 DCUniverse is coming back... for a short time

Looks like I'll be buying my first new DC Comics since August 31, 2011 next year!

DC Comics announced a return to the pre-New 52/Flashpoint universe next year. Not only are we getting back the pre-reboot characters but also most of the original creative teams!

The New 52 will be put on a short hiatus the time to see this previous "reality" which has been apparently put "Under the Dome" (ha!).

How does that work? Does that mean a giant dome is now around America or the entire planet Earth? The sky/solar system? The entire galaxy? The whole DCU?? I have no idea, and I don't care.

All I care is that we'll havve both Atoms Ryan Choi and Ray Palmer running around again. Superman married to Lois. Tim Drake in his Dr Midnight-inspired Red Robin costume. Donna Troy and armless Roy Harper (Fabian Nicieza writing that reassures me though). Harley Quinn finally back in a decent costume since the Arkham games forced DC to change her look every month. Wallly West and his family! And most importantly they even got Greg Rucka picking up Renee Montoya!The Question where he left things up! That's fantastic!

Much better creative teams on this short PR stunt than in most books DC publishes at the moment! I can't wait to pick these mini-series!

Here's the official solicitations:
