Brian Keene Confirms He Was On DC Comics' Five Years Later/Future's End

futureLast year we reported that Brian Keene and Greg Rucka were originally part of the writing team for the Five Years Later weekly comic event Future's End from DC Comics, but both pulled out.

We couldn't get him to talk about it then, but now he's confirmed the story.

I'd previously said "No" to many other projects for 2014, because at the time (as reported by Bleeding Cool and The Outhousers), I was meant to be one of the writers for a weekly comic series from DC Comics launching later this year (I'd also been in talks to take over Animal Man at the end of Jeff Lemire's run, and possibly do something with Booster Gold). Unfortunately, two months into the weekly project, I decided that I wouldn't be a good fit. Professionalism dictates I say no more than that, but the split was amicable, and I've nothing but respect and good regards for those still involved. However, it does leave me in a unique position. I'd declined to take on other work for this year, anticipating the churn of writing a weekly comic book series. So, now I find myself able to truly look at the list of books I'm already contracted for (mentioned above) and confidently say that I can complete them all this year

unless I get hit by a bus or something. But that's not a resolution.
