There are big changes ahead for our Batman books, and if you’ve read BATMAN #40 and DIVERGENCE #1, you know what we’re referring to. It’s one of the reasons we held a special Twitter Q & A with Batman writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo on Friday—to help you get some answers about what lies ahead for Gotham’s greatest hero and for the star creative team who are responsible for his latest adventures. But if you missed out, don’t worry.
Who doesn’t like free comics? Certainly no one that we know if the tweets and photos that hit Twitter and Instagram this Saturday are any indication. Some of you celebrated Free Comic Book Day 2015 by dressing up as your favorite hero or villain (that’s a pretty awesome Wonder Woman, @TheComicSource), while others got sketches and autographs from your favorite comic writers and artists.
As many of you know, this past Saturday was Free Comic Book Day, that beloved geek holiday when we celebrate comic books by giving a whole mess of them away for free. This year, DC Comics had two free books on offer, including the first installment of The New 52: Futures End, our brand new, timeline-shattering weekly series featuring the DCU debut of Terry McGinnis.
Unfortunately, this future-ending greatness is now in the past, but thanks to all of your tweets and Instagram posts, we’re able to relive our Free Comic Book Celebrations. Hey, it’s a lot safer than using a time band.
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!
