Well, DC’s got you covered with this handy-dandy recap! If you had any worries about the consequences of DC Future State, rest assured that it will pay dividends, with the first of many announcements of new talent teams and series debuting in March.
Here’s what you missed:
New names will be hitting the mean streets of Gotham City as well! Future State: Harley Quinn writer Stephanie Phillips and artist Riley Rossmo will deliver new adventures of the Clown Princess of Crime in an all-new Harley Quinn ongoing series, launching March 24, 2021.
Following both their story in Detective Comics #1027 and Bruce Wayne’s clandestine battle against The Magistrate in Future State: Dark Detective, award-winning writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Dan Mora will continue the adventures of the Dark Knight and his allies as the new team on Detective Comics, beginning with issue #1034 on March 24, 2021. Not to be outdone, award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang and superstar artist Ivan Reis continue the adventures of the “World’s Finest” in Batman/Superman #16, also on sale March 24, 2021.
Superman/Wonder Woman Family:
New adventures featuring the Amazon warrior princess arrive on March 10, 2021 as co-writers Becky Cloonan, Michael W. Conrad and artist Travis Moore are the new Wonder Woman team, starting with issue #770. In this new story arc, Diana has to endure endless fighting – and partying(?) – as she tries to figure out why she’s in Valhalla, and why nobody seems surprised that she’s there.
Justice League Family:
On March 3, 2021, the Future State: Swamp Thing team of writer Ram V and Mike Perkins will be continuing the adventures of the Protector of the Green in Swamp Thing, a 10-issue limited series. Also on March 3, Peacemaker takes center stage, leading an Amanda Waller-controlled Task Force X in a new Suicide Squad ongoing series, by Future State: Suicide Squad writer Robbie Thompson, with art by Eduardo Pansica. This series starts off with a bang, as Waller sends Peacemaker and Task Force X to recruit its next member – Talon, the master assassin from the Court of Owls. Meanwhile, she has her own hands full as she tries to recruit – Superboy?
Class is in session on March 17, 2021, as the Future State: Teen Titans duo of writer Tim Sherridan and artist Rafa Sandoval join the original Titans – Nightwing, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy – school a new generation of teenage crimefighters in a new ongoing series, Teen Titans Academy. Pay close attention, because one of these novice heroes will become Red X!
In April, Future State: Green Lantern writer Geoffrey Thorne continues to uphold the oath of the Green Lantern Corps with a new Green Lantern ongoing series spotlighting John Stewart.
