What the hell, DC? You had one job. ONE job. Put out a sampling from Futures End that’s gonna sell us comic readers on the rest of the series. It’s not like you were putting out any other free comics today, you could’ve made this your main focus.
Instead what comic readers, old and young alike, around the country get is a JLA/Terminator/Borg hybrid with superheroes getting massacred for 20 pages. It’s just being dark and violent for the sake of being dark and violent. Even Batman Beyond couldn’t save this for me. It’s too bad because the art I think is pretty good, which means it’s wasted.
I’m gonna borrow what someone else said about this: “DC Comics is fundamentally ashamed of making comics.”. That sums it up pretty well. Oh and so does this.
Happy Free Comics Day, Everyone!
