Barry Allen is a man divided, forced to either help his father remain on the run from the law, or bring him to justice. As Barry grapples with that impossible choice, The Flash becomes a target of the Folded Man, a mysterious deadly new villain to Central City who’s hell-bent on tearing The Flash apart—literally!

I forget, is this the first New 52 appearance of the Folded Man?

Variety Cover Berlanti Flash Supergirl

Variety profiles series producer Greg Berlanti with a cover featuring two signature DC Comics heroes. This may be the closest we’ll see the two characters for a while, though, as CBS currently plans to keep Supergirl separate for now.

Flash #43 DC Bombshells Variant Cover Featuring Killer Frost by Ant Lucia

Category: Covers — By

Flash #43 Bombshells Killer Frost Variant

DC is launching a second round of DC Bombshells variant covers featuring retro pinup versions of its characters — and a digital-first series — this summer. The Nerdist has several covers including The Flash #43 by Ant Lucia, featuring Killer Frost.

Newsarama has a round-up of all the covers released so far. One notable difference from the first round is that while the first round was all women, some of the covers feature men this time, including Sinestro, Dick Grayson, and Aquaman (and probably more, but I haven’t looked through the whole list yet).

Update: Apparently the the Bombshells series features “retro-bombshell versions of Batwoman, Wonder Woman and Supergirl in an alternate reality where super-powered female heroes are on the front lines in WWII” as well as “Monsters, magic, mayhem, & Marguerites” (the last item being a reference to the writer and artist on the series, Marguerite Bennett and Marguerite Sauvage).

Prof. Zoom and his “Hunting Party” in Flash Annual #4 (July)

Flash Annual 4

HitFix has the covers and details for several DC Comics annuals coming in July, including….

THE FLASH ANNUAL #4

Written by ROBERT VENDITTI and VAN JENSEN
Art by BONG DAVO and NORM RAPMUND
Cover by BRETT BOOTH and NORM RAPMUND
On sale JULY 29 • 48 pg, FC, $4.99 US • RATED T
Meet the new hunting party gathered by Professor Zoom – and see how The Flash’s nemesis recruited each of these deadly players to plague the life of Barry Allen.

Hmm, lower left might be an updated Folded Man or Shadow Thief. The cloak reminds me of New 52 Shazam, so maybe a related character. The woman with the headdress doesn’t ring any bells, but the one with the visor reminds me a bit of one of the future Cobalt Blues. And someone sure seems to be spinning a lot.

Flash #42 Teen Titans Go Variant

DC Comics’ July variant covers are all themed around Teen Titans Go, the wacky cartoon version of the characters currently airing on the Cartoon Network. In this one, released through Geek Mom, the Flash seems to have confused Beast Boy for Gorilla Grodd.
