Happy Halloween, everyone! Here’s the cover to Impulse #44 (January 1999) by Craig Rousseau and Wayne Faucher, featuring everyone’s favorite hyperactive teen speedster bringing home treats from around the world… much to his guardian Max Mercury’s dismay. (cover image via GCD)
Last question – something that wasn’t mentioned as one of the pieces of 2009, but yet, fans know it’s coming – what’s the timetable for Flash: Rebirth by Geoff and Ethan Vansciver?
DD: Flash comes back in April. The reason, and I’ll be very frank here – we’ve got so much going on with [Batman] “Battle for the Cowl” that I didn’t want Flash to get lost in the shuffle, so to speak. So April will see Flash: Rebirth #1, and by that point, we’ll also be talking about the big plan for the Flash universe, and the other Flash characters.
Now we know.
I’m looking forward to hearing more about the plans for the Flash franchise, though it’s going to be frustrating to wait. Keeping them under wraps has caused an awful lot of anxiety for fans of Wally West, contributing to the friction among the still-fractured Flash fan base.
This week’s Flash appearances include Justice League of America — as Impulse! — a Justice Society of America trade paperback, and possibly DCU: Decisions and Trinity.
Justice League of America #26

The JLA stands helpless against the power of Anansi, the African spider god who has warped their histories. Vixen makes her final stand, brokering a deal with the powerful villain. But will she be forced to sacrifice the JLA and Animal Man? Or does her last-ditch effort mean something far worse?
Justice Society of America Vol.1: The Next Age (paperback)
