Flash: Rebirth to Conclude December 23

Flash: Rebirth #6 (thumb)Once Flash: Rebirth #5 was pushed back to November 11, I don’t think anyone really expected the final issue to come out just two weeks later. Now DC has made it official, rescheduling Flash: Rebirth #6 for December 23. Merry Christmas, Flash fans! :-|

Dates for Blackest Night: The Flash have not changed.

Some interesting facts:

  • That’s 6 weeks after issue #5′s current release date.
  • It’s 12 weeks after the issue’s original release date (September 30).
  • Oddly enough, it’s 3 weeks after Blackest Night: The Flash #1 is scheduled to ship. (Thank you, DC, for not postponing it!)
  • It makes the miniseries 38 weeks, or almost 9 months, from start to end.
  • That makes it an average of 7.6 weeks between issues. The first three issues, which shipped on time, were 5 weeks apart.
  • Last year, the final issue of Wally West’s solo series, The Flash #247 was released on December 24. If this sticks, that means that two years in a row, a Flash series will have ended the Wednesday before Christmas.

Thanks to @kukheart for spotting this change. I’ve been checking daily, but he got there first today!
