UPDATED: DC Announces September Event, Return of 3D Covers
Keeping with tradition, DC has announced their big September event for 2014. Read on for early details and a look at the first preliminary 3D cover. Updated with info on DC's October plans.
Since launching The New 52 in September 2011, DC has decided to do a big event contained to the month of September each year to celebrate the reboot's anniversary. 2012 saw Zero Month, which told origins of various DC characters and 2013 saw Villains Month. That one resonated with fans because villains took over each book and brought sensational 3D covers with them.
Today DC announced, via Newsarama, that this September they will tie each book into the upcoming weekly series The New 52: Futures End. Not only that, 3D covers will return. It will also lead into a major project to be released this October.
"It gives some exciting teases of potential storylines that might be coming for our characters in the near future ," Dan DiDio told Newsarama. "These stories aren't going to just be tied into the weekly. But what you'll be seeing is a lot of the writers who are working on series right now projecting forward — their ideas, their storylines, where they think their character might be five years from now.We really wanted to show things that seem like the logical progression of the characters and where the story lines are going."
Basically, this shows us a possible future. DiDio continues:
"Ultimately, what you're going to see is the potential of where the futures can be going. And also, I'd like to say, what direct impact it has on stories set in the current timeline in the DCU."
Below is a preliminary 3D cover for Superman #35.
UPDATE: The October project spoken of will, in fact, be yet another weekly book by DC. It will have "direct implications on what's happening with the 'five years later' storyline".
