Preview: FUTURES END #0 Free Comic Book Day Special Edition

DC creators will be all across the country in shops to sign books for you!

In one gigantic, awesome tie-in to Free Comic Book Day, DC Comics will have creators from their company signing books at multiple locations in 18 states across the United States and one shop in Australia.

While it may not be officially recognized as a holiday, among comic fans, Free Comic Book Day holds just as much social significance as New Year's Day or Halloween. Free Comic Book Day 2014 is this Saturday, May 3rd. On that day, comic book stores worldwide will welcome thousands of eager fans through their doors with free comics and in-store events geared towards new readers and old alike. Many of these events will feature DC Comics writers and artists, signing copies of their books and often providing sketches for attendees. Perhaps one of these signings is near you?

Check out the DC page and their interactive map to find out where the signings are!

DC is offering two books on Saturday, May 3rd: THE NEW 52 FUTURES END FCBD SPECIAL EDITION, which is the start to their new weekly series and puts Batman Beyond, Terry McGinnis into continuity, and TEEN TITANS GO #1 FCBD SPECIAL EDITION, which is based on the Cartoon Network show and geared towards younger readers.

Get down to one of THESE LOCATIONS to meet and greet some of the DC talent on Saturday, May 3rd.

Click on the following to check out the preview:

Note: This is not a sponsored event through DC. They are simply giving everyone a heads up where their creators will be.

I'm really tempted to drive up to Muncie and meet Scott Snyder.

Pretty cool idea!

Cullen Bunn is going to be coming my local comic shop. Too bad I don't have any comics he wrote. I'll probably buy a Sinestro comic for him to sign. That series looked interesting. I doubt I'll get to go though. I have to work on Comic Book Day.

It sucks being a physical reader because if you don't get to the comic shop right when they open, you don't get nice things.

This preview is disturbing.

I had very little interest in Futures End and didn't have much intention of picking it up, but after that preview I am officially adding this to my pull list! I'm even happier now that I didn't add Batman Eternal to the list so I have room for this book.

Holy $#!‡!!

I have to see if I can drop something from my pull to buy this... I can't trade-wait for this book after that preview :O

I'm not intrested into many future superhero things (well apocolypse type futures stuff like DD 50th birthday future is different) this series doesn't seem much different or better getting a very AOU feel from it already especially since like AOU they're just killing everyone because it's a non canon future. I'll give the series a try if not for that art alone that is some amazing art we need more of that DC enough with the same generic art style for every comic and if your going to use only one art style for some stupid reason use that art style not the generic crap your using because that art is breathtaking.
