There's nothing like online rumors. When it comes to comics, there's always rumors flying around. There's been some buzz this morning, and I've had people ask me if I knew anything about the possibility of DC Comics rebooting or relaunching their entire line of comics with new #1 issues.
Possibly in response to these rumors, both co-publishers of DC Comics tweeted the same image:

Is this a confirmation to try to control the rumors or is it a nice tease to stir things up and get people talking?
We reached out to DC and the response was, "No comment."
What are your thoughts?
Perhaps this Rebirth is something on a smaller scale? Ethan Van Sciver tweeted the following this morning.
I'm so glad I re-upped with @DCComics. #Rebirth @geoffjohns @dandidio1 @JimLee— Ethan Van Sciver (@EthanVanSciver) January 25, 2016
Geoff Johns replied to Ethan with:
@EthanVanSciver @DCComics @dandidio1 @JimLee It would not be #Rebirth without you, Ethan!— Geoff Johns (@geoffjohns) January 25, 2016
Dan DiDio added the following response to both:
@geoffjohns @EthanVanSciver @DCComics @JimLee does this mean you're both involved in this mystery project??????— dan didio (@dandidio1) January 25, 2016
And one final tweet of reassurance from Johns:
Lots of questions about #Rebirth! More info soon but for now please know how much this word and @DCComics means to us. Undying passion!! ⚡️— Geoff Johns (@geoffjohns) January 25, 2016
