Each week, DC Comics will be releasing a free—that's right, FREE—digital comic book issue featuring a sample chapter from one of our 25 Essential Graphic Novels as well as sample pages from the 2014 Essentials catalog. This week: JLA #1!
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.
In the world of DC Comics, you don’t need super powers to look into your future. You just need Scott Snyder and Dustin Nguyen. In this week’s eagerly awaited BATMAN #28, we take a break from the ongoing “Zero Year,” and jump from the past deep into the future with a special standalone “spoiler” issue that looks at what lies in store for Batman in the months ahead.
The Justice League is known for many things: uniting the World's Greatest Super Heroes under the banner of battling evil and upholding truth and justice; multiple incarnations throughout the various years featuring heroes from all across the DC Universe; even amazing animated programs and original animated films worthy of re-watch after re-watch even though you can quote every line by heart.
However, one of the best things the JL is known for: awe-inspiring fights and kick ass throwdowns against some of the biggest and baddest villains in the DC Universe.
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?
