Welcome everyone to Week 2 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 are written for now).
So this week, we are reading
Future State: Dark Detective #1
Future State: Justice League #1
Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #1
Future State: Green Lantern #1
Infinite Frontier Books:
The Next Batman: Second Son #8
Static: Season One #2
Infinite Frontier Secret Files #1
Out of Continuity stories:
Legends of the Dark Knight #3
I cut Future State: Robin Eternal #1 (Kinda Unimportant) and Future State: Kara Zor-el, Superwoman #1 (Same reason), but both stories are decent.
Some thoughts to think about:
- In Future State: Dark Detective #1, Rate Dan Mora’s art? What pops the most for you?
- For Future State: Justice League #1, how do you feel about this team? Who do you like in it the most and the least?
- In Future State: Superman/Wonder Woman #1, describe Yara Flor’s personality as it’s currently defined.
- In Future State: Green Lantern, give me your thoughts on the two backup issues, which issue did you like more? (The Main Story is kinda bad, but the premise of the story is REALLY important for Green Lantern #1-4)
Batman Timeline spoiler: Dark Detective is the last story in the future state batman timeline until Future State Gotham which starts in May.
Can’t wait to see what you guys have to say!!! Enjoy the prelude to the next ERA of DC Comics!!!
