INFOGRAPHIC: The DCU Relaunch

on Wednesday, Jun. 22nd

This awesome image [hi-res link], from graphic designer Joe Stone, captures the lineup of the 52 new DC Comics that will launch this September in icon form.

In something of a thematic follow-up to my family tree project, here is an infographic offering a visual guide to the DC Relaunch happening this September, completed for local comic shop Ace Comics. All of the new titles spin out from the centre of the DCU (where the Justice League sits), with the most integral characters being closest to the middle.

Hope you like it.

Oh we do, Joe, we do!

Check out more of Joe’s work at his website and Tumblr, including this awesome X-Men family tree.
