The End is nearly here…
The End…is now in sight.
We’ve been talking about The New 52: Futures End a lot here lately, and for good reason. It’s an action heavy tale with serious implications for the entire DC Universe that’s utterly unlike anything else we’re publishing right now. We’re now four issues into the storyline, and each new chapter has only deepened the intrigue, offering up a mix of explosive sci-fi action, post-apocalyptic horror, far-reaching conspiracies, startling twists and revealing character moments.
Who says there’s no way to get a glimpse of the future?
The future’s a lot closer than you think.
The future is in some very good hands.
With all of the action and explosive twists the writers of The New 52: Futures End have managed to squeeze into the comic’s first two issues, it’s almost surprising to realize that the book’s only on its second issue. (Second as far as numbering goes, at any rate. The Free Comic Book Day installment was a zero issue!) However, that’s precisely where we are. Today, THE NEW 52: FUTURES END #2 hits stores, and brings with it a marked change of tone for the series.
Last Saturday marked not only Free Comic Book Day—a day comic book fans put away their wallets, storm the stores for free books, and immediately whip out their wallets again to splurge on amazing FCBD deals—but also the launch of the all-new weekly series The New 52: Futures End.
A hero lost in time. A devastating threat unknowingly unleashed by a genius. A desperate mission, critical stakes, startling twists and a cast of some of the most unique characters in DC Universe. The New 52: Futures End kicked off on Free Comic Book Day with a special edition zero issue, and the series continues today with THE NEW 52: FUTURES END #1, an issue that somehow manages to be even more shocking than the issue that preceded it.
