Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Flashpoint Story Announced

DC has announced an upcoming ‘what if?’ story in the Tales From the Dark Multiverse line, and this one is about an altered history of Flashpoint. The issue’s synopsis is as follows:

“Spinning out of the events of a world where a single choice by the Flash affected the entire DC Universe, find out what would have happened if Barry Allen had not put things right. If a world where the Flashpoint reality was never undone, where Thomas Wayne still haunts Gotham City as the Batman, and the Amazonian and Atlantean armies still prepare for war, will the Reverse Flash embrace this darker more deadly world and finally eclipse Barry Allen’s legacy?”

So obviously we’ll see just how bad the Flashpoint reality can get. The issue will be released on November 17th of this year.
