DC Future State - what it isa> and how it will be published

DC Future State will be composed of various mini-series, one-shot and one-shot anthology books of larger foliation that will be released in January and February 2021. Writers and illustrators known in the DC publications will participate in the event but there will also be space for writers from other media such as TV series and animated series and for designers who have worked in other areas such as the successful graphic novel line aimed at young adult audiences.

Among the names involved: Mariko Tamaki, Brian Michael Bendis, Gene Luen Yang, Joëlle Jones, Joshua Williamson, Nicola Scott, Cully Hamner and John Timms, along with new voices such as award-winning screenwriter John Ridley ( 12 Years A Slave), Brandon Vietti (Young Justice), Meghan Fitzmartin (Supernatural, DC Super Hero Girls), Brandon Easton (Thundercats, Transformers: War for Cybertron), Alitha Martinez (REPRESENT! It's A Bird!), LL McKinney (Nubia: Real One), Paula Sevenbergen (Stargirl) and Siya Oum (Lola XOXO).

The conclusion of the Dark Nights: Death Metal event, whose latest issue will be released on January 5, 2021, will bring a profound modification of the fabric of time and space and even though the Multiverse has been saved from destruction, its future has been rewritten indeed some of its futures!

Marie Javins, Executive Editor of the DC, stated:

DC Future State will help renew the DC Universe with new ideas and approaches. Some readers will realize that they had left clues in the months leading up to the event and will be able to pick up on others about the future of the series when they resume their release in March 2021.

DC Future State - Justice League

A new Justice League. None of the heroes know the identity of his companions and an old, now evolved, enemy will try to exploit this weakness in his favor. Meanwhile the members of the Justice League Dark are persecuted.

The Flash, Shazam and the Teen Titans are caught up in the attack of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse that destroys the Titans Academy and severes Barry Allen's connection with the Force of the Speed. Wally West will literally be possessed while Billy Batson makes a pact with the Devil. In space John Stewart and the last members of the Green Lantern Corps try to re-access the Central Power Battery, Jackson Hyde and Andy Curry are dispersed in a dimension that connects the Great Ocean. Amanda Waller instead finds herself on Earth-3 where she puts together the definitive Suicide Squad.

At the end of time, Swamp Thing dominates unchallenged while facing small pockets of human resistance. Black Adam instead senses that the past is the key to saving the future of the Multiverse.

DC Future State - waiting for a great relaunch

It is clear that DC Future State is an event that wants to test new narrative solutions also and above all from the point of sight of the talents involved. In March it is equally evident that we will have a profound restructuring of the editorial line as anticipated in an interview by Jim Lee himself, publisher and chief creator officer of DC.

On that occasion there was talk of a reduction of the quantified editorial proposal around 20/25% of the publications.

These are all those comics that could not reach such a breakeven point [for DC this usually means that the register was unable to keep around 25,000 copies - NdA] to have any kind of margin. We need to maximize revenue and align the series with the franchise brand they represent and have developed by ensuring that every comic we have released is released with a specific motivation.

In this it is conceivable a massive reshuffling of the creative teams with the rumors that want big names excluded including Grant Morrison, Tom King and Scott Snyder and only a few confirmed including for example James Tynion IV, the currently Batman writer confirmed at the helm of the series.

Superman and Action Comics are currently without creative teams after the conclusion of the management by Brian M. Bendis as well as Aquaman with the conclusion of the management of Kelly Sue DeConnick. Justice League, Green Lantern and The Flash also need high-profile relaunches.
