STARRING HEROES FROM CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS! Barry Allen lashes out against the heroes of the Tangent Universe as he tries to protect Gotham City from Convergence!

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.

Three Wise Guys

Impulse #57

I was going to post a different cover tonight, but then I noticed Bart saying “Sweet Christmas!” on this one. With the recent Luke Cage casting announcement, it seemed appropriate.

Have a merry Christmas if you celebrate it, or just enjoy your day if you don’t. And check out our gallery of Flash Christmas covers through the years.
