Check out our article on the Flash exclusive figure packaged with Justice League: Doom, now in stores. Devin has updated the post with photos of the actual figure as shipped.
The Flash: Move Forward, the first hardcover collection from the “New 52″ run by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato, is up for pre-order on Amazon with a November 13 release date. That means it should hit comic stores the previous Wednesday, November 7.
The listing states that it collects Flash #1-6, but that seems unlikely, given that Flash #6 is the first part of a two-parter. The most recent statement from DC said it would feature The Flash #1-8, which will cover the opening 5-part “Mob Rule,” the two-parter with Captain Cold, and the story featuring Turbine and the speed force. Contents, descriptions and covers do of course change quite a bit up until the point that a book is finalized, but I’d expect to see this volume run through either #7 or #8 by the time it’s released.
Green Lightning is a speedster from the future, a descendant of both Wally West and Kyle Rayner, who has inherited both super-speed and the Green Lantern ring. The two sides of her family insist that she follow their legacy alone, so that she can use only one set of powers each day — much to Adam Strange’s annoyance as they try to protect Rann from Oblivion!

The second issue of Flash co-writer/artist Brian Buccellato’s creator-owned horror/thriller series, Foster, is available in a limited convention special edition at Image Expo right now. Or, if you’re not in Oakland, you can buy it from his website, where you can also buy the regular edition of Foster #1.
Green Lantern blog The Indigo Tribe has recruited a group of comics bloggers to review the chapters of Green Lantern: Circle of Fire, a fifth-week event from 2000 that featured established heroes teaming up with a group of all-new Green Lanterns to face the threat of Oblivion, a new villain who has some strange connection with Kyle Rayner’s past.
I’ll be reviewing Green Lantern/Adam Strange, in which the space-going hero teams up with Green Lightning, a speedster Green Lantern from the future who is a descendant of both Kyle Rayner and Wally West.
The other guest bloggers featured are Frank from The Idol-Head of Diabolu (Green Lantern/The Atom), Shag from Firestorm Fan (Green Lantern/Firestorm), and Michael from The Fortress of Baileytude (Green Lantern/Power Girl).

The New 52 designs have been filtering into the costuming community since they were revealed last summer. David Ngo spotted this one, the first I’ve seen featuring Jim Lee’s revised Flash design, at MegaCon this past weekend.
Chin guard? Check. Seams? Check. Gold circle around emblem? Check. V-cut boots? Check.
Now if someone can just figure out a practical way to make the seams glow…
The Newsarama piece discusses the reintroduction of Captain Cold, the new character Turbine, as well as the vision for Speed Force as it appears New 52 version of Flash. They also discuss the pacing of the title, noting stories will be told in one-to-two issue sets for the next few months. The article features preview pages from issue #6, out today, as well as the first announcement of a new Flash Annual, due before issue #12 hits stands.
On their upcoming portrayal of the Speed Force:
Manapul: Inside the speed force itself will be quite different. I think before, it’s always been portrayed as just these speed lines and light and stuff like that. We really want to make it a world that’s fully realized, you know? And when the Flash enters this world, we want the readers to be in awe just as much as Barry Allen is.
It’s really going to be quite different visually.
