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.
The idea of what could have been always intrigues. It’s literally the basis of fictional storytelling. Those magic words: what if?
What if a stranger visitor from another world came to Earth and our yellow sun granted him amazing abilities far beyond that of normal man? What if a young boy with unlimited funds and resources saw his parents gunned down in front of him and began a never-ending quest for justice? What if a dying alien gifted a young pilot with the most powerful weapon in the galaxy?
Writer Marc Guggenheim and artist Scott Kolins are working on a big canvas with their "Supertown" storyline. Issue 47 sees events play out in Gotham City and Jacksonville, FL and features appearances by Manhunter and Blue Devil and a sinister development with the appropriately named Dr. Chaos. The JSA is already reeling from recent events. Can the team survive what happens next?
JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #47 goes on sale Wednesday. Here's an advance look at the issue.

Magog has a mommy? Who knew? Well, I'd imagine writer Keith Giffen and artist Howard Porter did. That's all the info we have for you, Source-ers, but we do have a lovely Porter design sketch for you to look at. We also managed to corner MAGOG editor Mike Carlin into giving us a tad more info on who this lady really is. Take it away, Mike:
"We’ll meet Magog’s Mom, Alba in issue #4...When she calls Magog back home to Albion. Where the demigod’s roots are!"
Fair enough. MAGOG #4 hits in January.
