Nearly three years after its debut, DC Comics is pushing its New 52 five years into the future to examine how heroes change with the passing of time and technology.
The weekly title, "The New 52: Futures End," debuts on Free Comic Book Day in May with a free zero issue, with the first issue of series hitting shelves and digital storefronts later that month.
Writers Jeff Lemire, Keith Giffen, Brian Azzarello and Dan Jurgens all have deep and historical ties to DC Entertainment and its roster of heroes and villains. They've been working to craft a story that focuses on the past, present and future that will have implications across the DC universe. Lemire calls it a "high concept" work.
