Category: Reviews — By

This is what we’ve been waiting for…for Professor Zoom to show his hand. The hunt is over and the battle begins on several fronts. The police blame Barry for the recent destruction in Central City, and Professor Zoom blames Barry for…well, just about everything bad in history. Things are stacked up against the Flash in just about every Avway possible, which is where we pick up in “End of the Hunt”, THE FLASH #46!

New Legends Of Tomorrow Trailer

Category: Media — By

There’s no episode of The Flash this week, but the CW’s gifted us with a new lengthy trailer for Legends Of Tomorrow! It will premiere on January 21st, and is seemingly due for the Thursday night timeslot.

There’s no Flash in this trailer, but we’ve seen from the previous trailer that he may make cameo appearances here and there. The series does have Captain Cold and Heat Wave amongst its core cast, as well as both halves of Firestorm and Hawkgirl (who also made their debuts in The Flash series). And, of course, both The Flash and Arrow have spent a fair amount of time setting up this new series, so you could arguably look at LoT as the culmination of those plotlines.

What do you think, did you like the trailer? Are you planning to watch the series?

This Week: Flash #46 (Preview) & Flash by Geoff Johns TP

Category: Out This Week — By

Flash #46Multiversity Comics has a preview of Flash #46, out in stores on Wednesday.

Art and cover by BRETT BOOTH and NORM RAPMUND
LOONEY TUNES Variant cover by FRANCIS MANAPUL and Warner Bros. Animation
On sale NOVEMBER 25 • 32 pg, FC, $3.99 US • RATED T

Is the missing Heat Wave dead—or alive? The Rogues reunite to find out. But the search has gone so bad that they need to enlist the help of The Flash to find out!

This seems like an odd time to bring the Rogues back in, as the Zoom Crew’s story rushes to its conclusion next month. Maybe it’s a temporary description that stuck.

The Flash By Geoff Johns Book One is coming out as well (this Wednesday to comic stores, next Tuesday to bookstores). This softcover collection follows up on the hardcover Omnibus series from a few years back, and according to Amazon it collects:

  • The Flash #164-176: Wonderland, Blood Will Run, and Birth Right.
  • Iron Heights
  • The Flash Secret Files #3
  • The Flash: Our Worlds at War

Extended Flash/Arrow Crossover Trailer

Category: Media — By

The CW has posted a much longer trailer for the upcoming crossover of The Flash and Arrow. The episodes are due to air on December 1st and 2nd, and will feature the debut of some major DCU characters (you’ll see them in the trailer). We’ll be seeing more of them in Legends Of Tomorrow, so this is a bit of a prologue of sorts for that series.

What do you think about the teaser? Are you looking foward to the debut of Vandal Savage?

“Gorilla Warfare” – Review of THE FLASH Ep. 2.07

Category: Reviews — By

We get so many fun things in this episode that’s it’s hard to know where to start…but without hitting spoilers too early, let’s note that this episode has some elements of both King Kong (to be expected) and The Hunchback of Notre Dame (not so expected but very cool). Barry is trying to heal after Zoom’s attack last episode, but will he heal in time to deal with…Grodd? More about that after the jump.
