With the release of today’s eleven new Convergence titles, we’ve reached the climactic final week of this unprecedented world-shattering—sorry, make that worlds-shattering comic book event. With all of reality unraveling, it’ll fall on a collective of heroes from all eras and avenues of the DC Universe to do what they can to save our existence. Will they be able to do it? What sort of universe will await us when it’s all over?
When new weekly series THE NEW 52: FUTURES END was announced last month via the ASSOCIATED PRESS, not many details were revealed. Fans learned that characters Batman Beyond, Frankenstein and Firestorm, would be involved and that the story would take place 5 years from the current DC Universe storyline.
Yesterday, DC ENTERTAINMENT announced THE NEW 52: FUTURES END will be one of their Free Comic Book Day titles for 2014. In addition, TEEN TITANS GO! #1 will be available at participating comic shops across the country for children of all ages.
So get ready for Free Comic Book Day 2014, which takes place the first Saturday of May!
Today, the ASSOCIATED PRESS announced that DC Comics will be publishing a
new weekly comic book series titled THE NEW 52: FUTURES END. Written by
Jeff Lemire, Dan Jurgens, Keith Giffen and Brian Azzarello THE NEW 52:
FUTURES END is set five years in the future.
Launching in stores across the country on Free Comic Book Day in May 2014,
this series will be accessible to current fans and new readers alike.
This Christmas Eve, see the Dark Knight like you’ve never seen him before.
In FOREVER EVIL #4, Batman must deal with the guilt of Nightwing’s identity being revealed. And even if Dick Grayson returns from the Crime Syndicate alive, will his life be forever ruined now that his deepest secret is out?
They say that a hero is only as good as his villain—which is arguably what makes Batman so dang amazing. After all, let’s face it, the Dark Knight holds, hands down, the most infamous and recognizable Rogues Gallery in the history of comic books.
From the Joker, the Riddler and Catwoman to Mr. Freeze, Poison Ivy and Two-Face, to Penguin, Scarecrow and oh so many more, the ill-famed inmates of Arkham, the criminally capricious citizens of Gotham both frighten and fascinate comic fans of all ages with their complexity, depth and completely insanely bazonkers gimmicks.
