Flash 41 Cover

DC’s June solicitations are rolling out. We’ve already seen the design for the Flash’s new costume post-Convergence, and now we see Professor Zoom (apparently separate from the new Reverse-Flash?) and his new look.

And the Flash’s costume, but not the Flash…

Flash/Jay Garrick New Look in Earth 2: Society

Category: Covers — By

Earth 2: Society #1

CBR has the solicitation and cover for the post-Convergence debut of Earth 2: Society.

EARTH 2: SOCIETY #1
Written by DANIEL WILSON
Art and cover by JORGE JIMENEZ
1:25 Variant cover by PAULO SIQUEIRA
On sale JUNE 10 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED T

The survivors of Earth-2’s war with Apokolips find themselves on a new world, but can Green Lantern, Power Girl, a new Batman and the other heroes of Earth-2 create a new world that’s better than the last, or will their interference and good intentions doom this world, just like the old one?

I had to do a double take, but the lightning makes it clear that’s the Flash on the right. What do you think of the new look for Jay Garrick?

This extra-sized issue includes a sneak peek at what’s coming up in the DC Universe!

Well, that cover confirms that he’s fighting the Tangent Superman.

As mentioned in the Convergence: Speed Force post, the Flash appears to be coming back from the event relatively unchanged — or at the very least, the numbering in June is picking up where it left off in March.
