There’s another comic series John Stewart fans should look into, and that is the upcoming weekly title Futures End. This series features a post-apocalyptic (or just straight apocalyptic) future, in which many heroes have become bug-like androids controlled by Brother Eye. It seems a few heroes have managed to avoid that fate, such as Grifter, Amethyst, Batman, and… Green Lantern John Stewart. Bleeding Cool has gotten a hold of issue #0 of the book, and has taken the liberty of spoiling a bit of it. You can view more images and get more of a lowdown on what’s going on there.
First Look: DC Comics’ Futures End #0 (BIG TIME SPOILERS)
Green Lantern John Stewart appearing as a hero in a high profile weekly title? You can definitely count me in! However, some art that was released (showcased in this update’s “Oa, by the way…) leads me to think that John may get assimilated. Yet, a spoiler caption on Bleeding Cool reads:
“John Stewart has managed not to die or become a bug. High five to Joshua Hale Fialkov? Sadly we can’t say the same for Blue Beetle.”
So, maybe John will avoid being turned into a robot slave? Let’s hope so.
Look for Futures End #0 to be released on May 3rd, 2014, free of charge!
The preview for Green Lantern Corps #30 has been released on Newsarama. This issue will give us the origin of the shape-shifting Durlan menace. I must admit that I’m somewhat disappointed, because this issue was solicited as having Bernard Chang doing the art, but Bernard’s work is absent here, sans the cover. In my opinion, the weakest Green Lantern Corps issues in Van Jensen’s run have been the ones without Bernard Chang on art, and I don’t think that’s at all a coincidence.
We’ll see how this goes.
Green Lantern Corps #30 will be available April 9th, 2014.
