THE FLASH ANNUAL #4

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/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?
