This Week (Dec 17): Tangent & Trinity

This week’s Flash action is mostly uncertain or in reprints. Tangent: Superman’s Reign and Trinity have both regularly featured Wally West. Showcase Presents: The Brave and the Bold: The Batman Team-Ups Vol.3 appears to have a Barry Allen team-up. And there’ll be at least one man in a red suit racing around the world in the DCU Holiday Special 2008

Notes: There’s no telling whether there might be a Flash story in here, but with Alan Burnett as the current writer it wouldn’t surprise me. Flash stories appeared in last year’s Halloween special and 2006’s Christmas special. Update: No sign of the scarlet speedster, though there is another super-fast guy in red.

Also likely:

Flash has been appearing regularly in Trinity, and Kid Flash appears frequently in Tiny Titans.
