Complete “Futures End” One-Shot Solicitations & Covers for September 2014

by  in Comics News
Comment

DC Comics’ July 2014 Solicitations contained a rather large surprise: advance solicitations for September’s “Futures End” one-shot tie-ins, with pricing and story descriptions but no creative teams. The one-shots were solicited far in advance with a final order cut-off of May 29, due to the return of the labor-intensive 3-D lenticular covers that made their debut during the publisher’s Villains Month in 2012.

During the course of May, DC revealed creative teams and partial covers for the “Futures End” tie-ins and followed up this week with the rest of the tie-in cover reveals.

CBR News has compiled all the information for the “Futures End” tie-ins — including covers, creative team and solicitation information — into a single place for the best look at what much of DC’s publishing slate will look like come September.
