Cover for "Futures End" #0.

Two months in advance of the normal solicitations release schedule, DC Comics has partially revealed its September 2014 solicitations via the official DC Comics blog, centering around tie-ins to the publisher's big weekly series "Futures End." While the tie-ins range from the old and familiar like "Superman" to the newly announced ongoings like "Grayson" and "New Suicide Squad," one particular surprise does rear its head: a "Booster Gold: Futures End" #1. CBR News has confirmed with DC Comics that the issue is just a one-shot at this time.

Additionally, September heralds the return of DC's 3D motion covers, which first debuted during Villains Month. In fact, September is usually a special month for the publisher, marking the anniversary of the New 52 launch. "Futures End" flashforwards are the latest September initiative from DC, following Villains Month in 2013 and #0 issues in 2012, which both took over the publisher's normally numbered ongoing series.

While the information doesn't contain any of the creative teams or covers, there are more than a few hints at things to come for DC's upcoming weekly series and the new status quo.

Check out the partial DC Comics September 2014 solicitations below. "Futures End" begins in May.
