Flash #35 Monster Variant Cover

Category: Covers — By

DC is going to be doing monster variant covers for October, including a zombie Flash by Ryan Ottley and FCO Plascencia. It’s a bit more gruesome than some of the other monster covers I’ve seen, so I’m putting it after the cut.

Category: Covers — By

DC has released animated mock-ups of more of their Futures End event covers, including the one for The Flash. (The before and after images were revealed a few weeks ago.) It’s a big download (800K), so I’m putting it behind the cut. Read the rest of this entry »

A New Kid Flash in Teen Titans / Future’s End

Category: Covers — By

Teen Titans Five Years Later

Also among the Futures End covers revealed today: Teen Titans, by Karl Kerschl (Wednesday Comics: The Flash and Teen Titans Year One). And if a future Wally West wasn’t enough, the “after” team lineup includes what looks to be a new Kid Flash… though her costume looks a bit reminiscent of Speed Freak, a member of the alternate-reality Love Syndicate of Dreamworld who appeared in Grant Morrison’s “Second Crisis” way back in Animal Man #23 (1990).

Also, it looks like we’ve got Lagoon Boy, Klarion the Witch Boy, not sure about the figure in the back, and up front…um…the Tattooine representative of Batman, Inc.?

Future Wally West on the Cover for Flash/Future’s End

Category: Covers, Flash News — By

DC has revealed the remaining Future’s End covers for September’s New 52 anniversary event. These will be motion covers, like last year’s 3D covers except showing a before-and-after pair of images. The pair for the Flash issue is…well, take a look!

Flash - Five Years Later - before: Barry Allen

Flash Five Years Later - after: Wally West

They’ve also confirmed that the issue will be written and drawn by the usual creative team. This should come as no surprise to those who’ve been following interviews with Robert Venditti and Van Jensen, as it fits right into the current time travel storyline.

So what do you think of the new look for Wally West?

Brian Buccellato & Noel Tuazon’s FOSTER – TPB in July

Category: Covers, Creators — By

Foster TPB

While co-writing The Flash, Brian Buccellato self-published Foster, a six-issue horror miniseries.

Only five issues saw print, though he published the conclusion digitally as a PDF. This July, OSSM is releasing the whole story as a trade paperback. Fanboy Comics has the cover and a preview of the book.

FOSTER, a haunted war veteran trying to forget the world at the bottom of a bottle, becomes the guardian of a 6 YEAR-OLD BOY who is the offspring of a woman and a PRIMAL RACE OF SUPERNATURAL CREATURES that lurk on the fringes of society and need him to repopulate. In a world where technology is stuck in the analog ’70s and danger lurks around every corner, three rival factions want the half-breed child. Now Foster must navigate the shadow world, twisted scientists and his own past in order to keep the boy safe while winning his trust, nurturing his humanity, and trying to prevent him from giving in to the monster within.
