Welcome everyone to Week 1 of Future State!!! It’s HERE!!! Now before I tell you the weekly reading, I want to give you some advice reading the event.
The Goal of the event is kinda to put together a puzzle. There are a lot of small clues to find that will tell you the story of the different families: Justice League, Batman, Superman, and Teen Titans. Which stories go where, I’ll leave that up to you to figure out! (But I’ll give you a hint each week to guide you down the right path). If you want my answer key (as I interpreted the event), check out my Future State Reading Order on Comic Book Herald (where my reading orders now go).
So this week, we are reading
Future State: The Next Batman #1
Future State: Harley Quinn #1
Future State: Swamp Thing #1
Future State: Wonder Woman #1
Infinite Frontier Books:
The Next Batman: Second Son #7
Out of Continuity stories:
Legends of the Dark Knight #2
I cut Future State: Superman of Metropolis #1 (Because it’s not great) and Future State: The Flash #1 (Same reason), but both stories have some interesting moments in the way they work with the event as a whole.
Some thoughts to think about:
- In Future State: The Next Batman #1, how do you feel about the magistrate? Do you like the inclusion of the smaller back-issues? Which one did you perfer?
- In Future State: Harley Quinn #1, how do you feel about the art style? People tend to go either way with it.
- How amazing is Future State: Swamp Thing #1?!?!?!?!
- In Future State Wonder Woman, how do you feel so far about Yara Flor. It’s early, but as a new character for the DC Universe. How are you feeling about her.
Can’t wait to see what you guys have to say!!! Enjoy the prelude to the next ERA of DC Comics!!!
