Not explicitly saying the books will be one-shots but that's what it sounds like it to me.

Most likely, since Villains' Month was just an issue, and you can tell a lot of story in a 32-page comic.

So I'd give issue #1 a 3.5/5. I enjoyed most of it but the dialogue during the ending felt kinda ham-fisted to me. Art was good, liked Firestorm's new costume.

I love that the first weekly book I check out it has two former Wildstorm properties.

I forgot that this is taking place five years from now. Threw me a bit off when Firestorm showed up.

Can Patrick Zircher draw a Grifter ongoing? I would buy the hell out of that.

Yeah, I hope the series doesn't limit itself to five and 35 years from now, and that it will explore the present as well.

Every solicit and interview I've read suggested it will not be in the present. Isn't that kind of the point?

What point is there to explore the present?

Probably to explore the creation of Brother Eye and stuff though technically wouldn't that be in the past?

One other thing I liked in this issue, Terry and A.L.F.R.E.D.

It would be in the past. But I think Heide is referring to the time line that present DC books take place.

They're probably will be a flashback issue at some point to show that though.

Can't wait til someone at DC realizes no one gives a fuck about Stormwatch and they can stop throwing them in our faces. That will be a good day.

While I enjoyed Issues #0 + #1, and will continue to read this series, I can't help but feel a resounding sense of deja-vu.

It was only a short time ago that Final Crisis came out, where Darkseids Anti-Life Equation corrupted the minds of heroes and civilians and led to a dystopian present.

Then we had Blackest Night, where Nekron and the Black Rings re-animated both heroes and civilians and led to an almost dystopian end.

Shortly after that, Rise of the Third army, where, you guessed it, the Guardians used their powers to convert the minds of heroes and civilians into an army bent on creating a perfect (dystopian) future.

Nu52 rolls around, and in the pages of Swamp Thing and Animal Man, Rotworld takes place, where the Rot/Black infects the minds/bodies of heroes and civilians to create a, wait for it...*drum roll* Dystopian Future!!

Couple that with the early 90's Cable and Bishop/X-Book stories over in Marvel, where mutants were sent back in time to stop the events that would cause their dystopian future.

Obviously it is hard to be 100% original in any fictional media source these days, so I"m not using the above as a complaint, merely an observation.


The only major complaint I have, and not with Futures End itself but with the Nu52 and the timing of this event, is that we haven't had much time to spend in the "present" with the "Nu Heroes" yet. 5 years ago the Justice League forms, then we fast forward to Trinity War and Forever(unending) Evil, and now jump ahead 5 years into the future. I don't feel like we have a solid enough base to stand on with the Nu characters yet to have an event like this. They have very little history together that actually been seen by the reader, only implied histories.

What would have worked better for me is if 5 years of actual real time had gone by before setting up a "5 years later" story in comic time, just to flesh out all the characters and give us a good base history of them being in the same world together.

Even still, this gets 3/5 for me, because despite everything, I love dystopian futures and time travel, and not to mention B-List characters headlining comics. I"m hoping it turns out as good as 52 was, and better than Countdown.

I was going to used this as a springboard back into DC and they do that to Apollo.
And yes Stormwatch is the only reason I decided to read this

A couple of questions since I haven't read DC books in over a year
Wasn't Mr Terrific stuck on Earth 2 and was he always such an ass

He is stuck on Earth 2. Futures End takes place five years from now. The story in-between will be told in the third weekly series, "Earths End". And that will probably tell us what changed him.
