Unless you’ve been living under a rock for most of the summer, you have to know that DC Comics is renumbering (or is it rebooting, relaunching, or restarting?) their entire main DC Universe.  A few of the characters and titles will see little change and a few will see more dramatic changes while several titles will not be returning, at least not in the foreseeable future.  Initially, we were sad knowing that some of our favorite titles like Secret Six, Zatanna and Batman Beyond were not coming back but on the opposite end, we were excited by new titles like Justice League Dark, Swamp Thing, Blackhawks and Men of War.
