    Looks like there will be a relaunch after all. I’m guessing we’ll get creative team announcements soon and solicits will have more details.

    Wonder if its possible that this is an imprint of future-specific stories. I'd kinda be concerned if its the name given to a wholesale relaunch effort as it suggests legacy and I'm so freaking tired of legacy.

    Ah... Future State. Typo alert.

    If it's a relaunch with an emphasis on long term dedication to titles, then it sounds cool.

    If it's another Future's End, DC One-Million or Armageddon 20xx, however...

    With the new management, I'm expecting the better of the two.
    Will pray that they succeed in putting all the broken toys back together.

    Yeah I only noticed after posting that it was “state” not slate. If mods can fix the typo it would be appreciated otherwise we’ll just roll with it.

    Now I'm suddenly worried "Future State" is the new form of the 5G imitative....

    At the end of the Generations story in Detective #1027 it said "To be continued in Generations: Future State".
    My guess would be another mini event(like Endless Winter) spinning out of Generations.

    Ah you could be right, although Endless Winter was a one month event, this looks to be spread over two months, so we’ll see.

    I'm fine with this being a relaunch so long as it's not a reboot or a retread, ya dig? DC definitely needs a come to jesus moment to establish a clearer direction for their books and characters, but I am not interested in another glorified reintroduction to whichever character they feel they wronged to "fix" continuity. nor am I interested in another do-over of the whole universe where they etch-a-sketch away everything going on. I just want some good stories to set the tone going forward; emphasis on forward.

    Yeah, Generations Shattered used art intended for Generation One, maybe the one-shot in December is Generation 2 and 3, and Future State is 4 and 5?

    Is it possible that this is the same separate imprint for 5G that BC wrote about?

    That’s what I’m thinking now is the case. If so that means Jan and Feb might be filler months before the “real” initiative in March.

    Giving 5G it's own Earth to do its own thing without having to muck with the main DCU would be ideal. Had they done this with the New 52, they could have avoided a lot of headaches.

    And if any of the 5G books end up being great, have them migrate over to the main Earth

    Yes, most likely this is just a two month thing, so the new creative teams can start in march. If we look at Superman, Bendis will be out in December, Future State will happen in January and February, comes March, the Superman titles will have a new creative team, Bendis will have a new title and so on.
