Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: January 12, 2021


Future State hasn't been kind to Kara so far, but maybe being Superwoman will buck the trend.  I mean, it's not like she's going to be stuck in a Moon Colony with a shapeshifting alien who can steal her powers and is on the run from her power-hungry relatives, right?  Oh no...

Justice League is one of the Future State books I've been looking forward to because, while it's nice to see heroes kick ass in their solo books, I love seeing them together, especially in the Justice League.  So, what does this Justice League look like, and do they work well together?  Let's find out...

It's the year 2035 and the Green Lantern Corps.. or what's left of it is in a bad way. Mostly because there hasn't been a Green Lantern for some time, what with the power battery going down, but beyond that idea, it seems kind of mysterious about what actually happened to the emerald cops of the Universe. For this issue, we'll be seeing John Stewart for our main story and Jessica Cruz and Guy Gardner for the backups so let's get to as we take a peek into the Green Lanterns' future. Let's check it out.

No One Is Born With Wisdom, And Some Never Learn It

Written By: Marguerite Bennett
Art By: Marguerite Sauvage
Cover Price: $3.99

Future State: Kara Zor-El Superwoman #1 follows the titular character after she relocates to the Moon to assume the role of protector of a large colony of displaced individuals. Kara struggles with her past, her unsettled conflict with the Kents (Jon and Clark), and her new role of protector over a colony that doesn't fully welcome her presence. When a refugee on the run from her own family issues crashes on the colony, Kara's burgeoning philosophy of "helping without harming" is put to the test. It's tons of emotional baggage. It's a lot of talking. It's Future State.

Gods and Monsters

Release Date: January 5, 2020

Future State: Superman / Wonder Woman #1 brings the future namesakes together to fight a visit from Solaris... but not exactly. Despite this comic being billed as a team-up story, the two characters barely interact with each other besides two mildly tense conversations. Each character has their own problems to deal with regarding the Sun (it gets a complicated) and each go about dealing with their problems in their own way. It's a disjointed story. It's a book with some rough art. It's Future State.
