Tony Bedard, writer of DC Comics’ R.E.B.E.L.S. in on a mission - he must make comic fans read his series. Having passed the initial six issue arc of the series, Bedard is now taking his readership farther into the deepest reaches of space for more hard-hitting, less-than-scrupulous space misadventures featuring Vril Dox and his motley band of miscreants. With the threat of Starro the Conqueror raging throughout the galaxy, Dox continues to defy his programmed mission of assembling a modern equivalent to The Legion of Superheroes by gathering an antithetical group of rebels.

Newsarama spoke with Bedard about the current direction of R.E.B.E.L.S. and the return of a few familiar faces for fans of the "cosmic" corner of the DC Universe , some good and some not so good.
