Are you ready for DC Generations? The road to DC’s biggest initiative since THE NEW 52 begins here!
DC Comics is the kind of Universe where when they do something big — it’s going to reach out to every corner of their worlds, and their upcoming relaunch (rumored to be called 5G, but not yet confirmed) is going to be the biggest thing they’ve done since the NEW 52, and we’re telling you now, Third Eye Faithful: it’s time to get on board.
Starting this FREE COMIC BOOK DAY (5/2/20), DC kicks off their GENERATIONS mini-series, which is set to be this generation’s (no pun intended) version of the now-classic LEGENDS mini-series that followed in the wake of CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, and helped reinvent the DCU as we know it.
What’s the scoop on GENERATIONS?
GENERATIONS: AGE OF MYSTERIES is a series of one-shots that will focus on key aspects of the DC Universe, while defining and cementing exactly what the official timeline of the DC Universe is.
We saw a glimpse of this timeline in the pages of Wonder Woman #750 (in stock and available now at all Third Eye locations), and with the GENERATION one-shots, each super-sized issue will follow the points-of-view of key DCU icons during major moments throughout DC History.
And, this isn’t just a re-telling of old stories, Third Eye Faithful, this is the revealing of a secret history of the DC Universe, and it all kicks off on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY in the prequel: GENERATION ZERO: GODS AMONG US.
The march toward DC’s future begins here! By an all-star team of writers and artists!
In May, DC launches a series of special one-shots that detail the history of the DC Universe starting with the debut of Wonder Woman, DC’s first superhero, and leading all the way to a bold new era unlike anything you’ve seen before. before.
It starts on Free Comic Book Day with Generation Zero, and continues in May with Generation One-with each subsequent month seeing a new one-shot spotlighting the next generation of DC’s super-heroic legacy.
The secret history of the DC Universe unfolds before us as seen through the eyes of Wonder Woman, Lucius Fox, King Faraday, and more!
What is the previously undocumented “big bang” of the heroic age?
What was the real reason behind the Justice Society’s retirement?
Which hero of the Golden Age makes a shocking transformation into its greatest villain?
The answers set up the boldest DC storylines ever told in this, the first of five one-shot issues that chronicle the history of the DC Universe and lays the groundwork for excitement yet to come!
What’s even more exciting is where the GENERATION one-shots are set to take us, as a new timeline is refined and finalized for the DCU as we know it.. and the rumors swirling around what will be left once that final GENERATION one-shot comes out — are CRAZY AWESOME!
