I only will pay attention to the books that are already on my pull list..and then scratch my head and probably feel as if I just tossed money into a fire.

If the Batgirl issue is like any of the issues I've picked up so far... you'll be completely lost, it won't make a bit of sense.

What Xylob said. All of these issue jump about 5 years ahead of where the books are at now. Many of give some back stories as to how characters in the Futures End weekly series got to where they're at in that series, but some are completely stand-alone. Since Batgirl hasn't been seen in Futures End yet, I'm guessing that one's a stand-alone book.

IMO, the Batgirl FE issue was the only one I read/browsed through that made even a lick of sense. And it was nice seeing a couple of old friends again. >.>

That was a fun stand alone issue. Some of the FE books have been like that - completely self-contained. Some have tied into their regular series. And a few, like Superman and Green Arrow, tie in pretty heavily to events in the regular Futures End title.

Was there ever a Dick Grayson in the Animated Universe? I remember Tim Drake getting Dick Grayson's origin in the cartoon.


Dick was Robin all during the Fox run of the cartoon. When it moved to WB (and Batman lost the yellow oval), Dick became Nightwing, and Tim Drake was introduced with Jason Todd's origin.

I've liked the Superman and Booster Gold issues so far. Red Lanterns was OK too.

I've been reading Futures End from the beginning so its not an issue of "what the heck is going on here/" but am I the only one rather disappointed in most of the one shot issues that came out. Granted I haven't read all of them but the vast majority of what I have read has been utter crap. The only two that I have cared for so far are Green Arrow (which ties in heavily to the main Futures End story) and Green Lantern. The Harley Quinn issue was garbage, of course I should have known that before reading the first page. New Suicide Squad seemed to be nothing but a low quality fan fic. Wonder Woman had me confused to the point my brain hurt. Grayson tried to rip off the movie Momento, as far as how the story was told, but failed miserably. Justice League United was so so and I honestly only got it because its part one of a two part story with Justice League so I didn't want to be lost when I read that issue. Still haven't read the Batman ones, Flash or Aquaman so maybe they will be better. At this point I'm not holding my breath.

I didn't pick up the JLU issue, but found the writing and artwork in the JL to be sub-par (at best).
But, then again, I don't care much for the Legion either.

I agree that the art was sub-par. That's probably my biggest complaint against the Futures End tie-ins. But I enjoyed the story. I can see how not reading the first part of the story might put a crimp in that. And yeah, being a Legion fan helped a lot. Winking

Okay read a few more of the one shots and they were slightly better. First up was Aquaman, its part 1 of a 2 part story. This was actually a pretty good issue. It is near the tops of these one shots I have read. Batman & Robin, again a pretty decent issue. We get to see a new Robin (who apparently made his comic debut in the Zero Year storyline). Superman/Batman, okay now this one has me really confused. In it Bruce has a broken back from a butt whopping from Superman. Apparently Batman done something that ticked off all the super heroes, especially Superman. Batman being Batman doesn't give the broken back proper time to heal and completely breaks it beyond repair and is bound to wheelchair in the end. In the other Batman one shots I read or scanned through he doesn't have a broken back. So my question is when does the broken back happen? All the one shots are 5 years in the future. I'm assuming taking place during the Futures End weekly comic time line. If anyone knows let me in on the secret.

IIRC, the Superman/Batman issue takes place further into the future than the 5 years where everything else is set.
