For many fans, the announcement that June would bring a new ongoing Batman Beyond comic was—to borrow a term from the show—very “schway.” While the world of Terry McGinnis has lived on since the animated series ended in 2001, most recently as a popular digital first series written by Kyle Higgins, this is the first ongoing Batman Beyond comic series set within DC Universe continuity.
Look, up in the sky! It's the return of DC All Access!
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.
DC All Access is back with another all-new episode. This week we’re hitting the mean streets of Starling City for an on-set interview with David Ramsey and other members of the cast.
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!
