This Week: Flash #194-195

Category: Covers, Out This Week — By

The Flash was weird in 1970. Added to DC’s digital backlist this week (descriptions from ComiXology & Comics.org):

Flash #194: The Bride Cast Two Shadows – “Looking into the eyes of a strange woman gives Flash visions; he assumes another identity, battles demonic creatures, and gets married.” And there’s still room after all that for a backup story, The Man Who Televised Time!

Flash #195: Fugitive From Blind Justice – “Flash is ambushed by a group of crooks from his past but is saved by a mystery dog. Flash saves Lightning from being put to sleep after Lighting is accused of killing his master.” I Open My Mouth…But I Can’t Scream! – “Flash must overcome his fear of roller coasters.”

Flash vol.7: Savage World

Upcoming collections from DC include:

THE FLASH VOL. 7: SAVAGE WORLD HC

Art by BRETT BOOTH, NORM RAPMUND, ANDRE COEHLO and others

In these tales from THE FLASH #36-40 and SECRET ORIGINS #7, The Flash is trapped in a bizarre lost land terrorized by castaways from the past, present, and future—and that leaves Central City without a hero! Even worse, a murderous, new Flash shows up to take Barry’s place! Will the Fastest Man Alive make it back in time to put things right?

This picks up after the previous volume’s confrontation between present and future Flashes, which leaves our hero stranded outside time and a darker, alternate version of the Flash in a position to take over his life.

Amazon has the book available for preorder.
