Flash Season Finale Official Synopsis

Category: Media — By

The CW has released the official synopsis for the last episode of the season, titled “The Race Of His Life”. I’ll get to that in a moment (it’s behind the cut for spoiler reasons), but there are a couple of news tidbits first.

IGN reports that Kevin Smith will direct another Flash episode in season 3. His first episode will air next week, and the cast and crew were reportedly energized by his presence on set.

The Hollywood Reporter talks with Flash visual effects supervisor Armen Kevorkian about doing twenty-three effects-heavy episodes per season. He discusses a bit about CGI characters such as Grodd and King Shark, as well as some of the ways they differentiated Flash and Zoom’s speed effects.

The synopsis is behind the jump!

The Digital Flash Backlist is Back in Action!

Category: Out This Week — By

Flash 80 Page Giant 2After several years adding more Flash back issues to their digital catalog on an almost weekly basis, DC stopped. Only the new comics would show up on ComiXology, so I stopped keeping an eye out.

It turns out DC has started up again. The main Flash series from 1987 onward have been complete for a ehile, and DC had been working on filling in the 1959-1986 series when they stopped. Over the past two months they’ve added:

Flash/Green Lantern: Faster Friends, a two part miniseries starring Wally West and Kyle Rayner as they find one of Jay Garrick and Alan Scott’s old cases comes back to haunt them. (Also one issue showed up on LOST, mainly I think because they find a polar bear.)

Flash 50th Anniversary  Special, in which three generations of Flashes battle the same villain across the ages, and a future Flash John Fox makes his debut.

Flash 80-page Giant #1 and #2, each featuring a mix of Jay, Barry, Wally and Bart, plus max Mercury and Jesse Quick.

DC First: Superman/Flash, featuring the first race between Superman and Jay Garrick.

Flash Secret Files #3, which introduced Hunter Zolomon.

Flash (1959) #107, which was skipped for some reason the when they started releasing the Silver Age Barry Allen issues.

And there’s also a digital collection of theMorrison /Millar /Ryan / Mhan run. The individual issues have been available already, but now you can get them all in one package.
