Bleeding Cool did get the debut date wrong though – May, not September. Artists will include Ethan Van Sciver, Jesus Merino, Aaron Lopresti and Dan Jurgens.

The New 52: Futures End will debut on Free Comic Book Day in May, with the series beginning later that month.

The PR piece has Keith Giffen quoted as saying "Just look at the talent roster that's been gathered. How could you not want to be a part of that?"

Well, maybe ask Greg Rucka and Brian Keene that question…

Characters will include Batman Beyond, Frankenstein and Firestorm, looking at not just the future of the New 52 but its past and present as well.


DC Entertainment is owned by Time Warner Inc.
