Flash: Divergence Sneak Peek

Category: Flash News — By

flash-divergence-preview-splashpageDC has an eight page preview of the post-Convergence direction of the Flash in which we see Barry Allen’s new costume, his new living situation (with a surprise roommate), plus a reminder of his family history…which looks like it may be important, now that Professor Zoom (the Reverse Flash) is back — and the Professor has brought his students along.

I’m not sure if this is part of the upcoming The Flash #41 or if it’s an independent preview.

According to Brett Booth on Twitter, this is a stand-alone preview that is not part of The Flash #41.

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?

This wraps up the softcover collections (it’s available in hardcover already) of the original New 52 Flash run by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. Manapul had already left to start on Detective Comics, but Buccellato stayed on for a few more issues to wrap up remaining plot threads from their run, including key questions about Barry’s parents and his mother’s murder. Deadman and Green Lantern guest star.

Follow the adventures of Barry Allen from issues #1-12 of this new series as he struggles to balance his job as a police crime scene investigator, his unrequited crush on Iris West, and his new life as Central City’s guardian angel!

A few things of note:

  • It’s 12 issues — a whole year’s worth of comics.
  • They’re not calling it volume 1. That sounds to me like Season Zero will be done after 24 digital chapters, collected into 12 print issues, collected into one book. Though I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Flash Season 1.5 comic next year.
  • Based on the current schedule, issue #12 will also be coming out in September, most likely the first week of the month. So either the release date here is wrong, or DC is releasing the collected edition the same day as the final print issue. That’s unusual, but maybe the audience for digital-to-print media tie-ins breaks down differently and the publisher doesn’t feel the need to postpone the collection they way they do with the print-first books. Or they’ve gotten positive data from Vertigo’s schedule of releasing collections during a skip month after each arc’s last chapter.
