September is always a special month for DC Comics’ New 52. The first year it was the launch. The second year it was #0 issues. Year three was Villains Month. And next up is a Futures End tie-in month.
Welcome to the future – FUTURES END, that is! This September, DC Entertainment takes you five years into the future of DC Comics – The New 52, where the heroes of the DC Universe face challenges unlike anything you’ve ever seen!
THE FLASH: FUTURES END #1
Advance solicit • On sale SEPTEMBER 24
32 pg, FC • RATED T
3-D Motion Edition: $3.99 US
2-D Standard Edition: $2.99 US
It’s the final showdown between The Flash and his future self for control of the Speed Force – with Wally West’s life hanging in the balance!
According to Newsarama, the advance solicitation is due to the special motion covers, to try to prevent the shipping debacle of last year’s Villains Month covers in which DC didn’t print enough of the 3D covers to fill orders.
Fortunately for us, it looks like the Flash issue fits right into the series’ regular storyline, just like the Reverse Flash one-shot fit into the middle of Reverse.
