DC Comics is enjoying a renaissance thanks to the success of the Rebirth line, and writer James Tynion promises that things are only getting started. Next up: Dark Days.

Tynion opened up about the upcoming storyline, which he teased will be the launching point for the next part of the year, which will serve as a stepping stone to DC's fall event. He said Dark Days is a jam-packed, over-the-top story full of dark things happening to the heroes, though Tynion said they're working hard to balance the lighter tone of Rebirth with the inherent "darkness" of Dark Days.

However, Tynion believes it's not exactly a dark story but a celebration of these characters. It's about taking the DC universe and making a leap forward into a new story that's fresh.
