Friday, September 30
And so we come to Week Four–marking the end of September, the month that ushered in the debut of DC Comics-The New 52 and the unprecedented transformation of the entire DC Universe. It’s hard to believe we’re finally here because for us September started a long time ago. Let me explain:
It’s been quite a ride since the writers conference that initiated this evolution. It’s been a year of pitch meetings, story conferences and design sessions that often went far into the night. It’s been a year of hard work on everyone’s part and truth be told – it’s been a lot of fun.
Lost in the speed force, Kid Flash is trapped in a distorted future world. After a startling revelation, Bart Allen realizes he must surrender himself to the criminal mastermind, Braniac. Only then will he be able to manipulate his way back to a point in time that he (at least somewhat) recognizes and seek out his grandfather. But what happens if Braniac catches on to Bart’s plan?
1) Alien menaces
2) Mysterious underwater creatures
3) Unexpected visitors from other worlds
4) An unsolved kidnapping
5) An international special forces team
6) All of the above
Think you know the answer? Find out this October when the second issues of the Justice League and Young Justice group titles in DC Comics’ The New 52 are published.
When a scorned enemy reveals the identity of the Secret Seven to the world, it’ll be up to Shade the Changing Man to hold the team together. But as he struggles to lead them, he’ll need to find the confidence to understand his incomplete memories. Otherwise, he may lose grip on reality and turn into a madman--the very kind he intends to stop.
