Oh Future State is amazing so far…- I was gonna wait til they all dropped & read em in the reading order instead of release date. But, as soon as they dropped I nailed em’. Forgot, I went back to clean up the Rayner Green Lantern & didn’t realize I had so many unread. That’s why I’ve been nailing those GLS lately. I love it, I just didn’t know there were any besides super old ones I hadn’t read yet?

I love when that happens! Super cautious about Future State based on the “mask and cape” angst it’s gearing up with, although I’m always down to watch our heroes face challenges and triumph through it all. It’s a nice surprise that DC is scraping their catalog for some of the lesser known characters, tying them into these new stories in meaningful ways.
