Just a quick note since I’m kind of swamped today. DC has posted the first half of a two-part interview with Geoff Johns where he talks about his history with the Flash back to watching Challenge of the Super Friends and what he likes about the character. On the new series, he says:
All you need to know when you read the Flash #1 is how to read. Flash 101, and a few twists and turns, are within the pages. Francis did a stunning job, raising his art even from the amazing Adventure Comics.
On a key characteristic of Barry Allen:
Barry Allen is someone who has made a decision to help others during his own life and he made that decision even before he became the Flash.
The Rogues of course will be a big part of the new series, but they won’t be the only villains:
Barry will be meeting some new villains, one in particular that is going to be the strangest killer he’s ever faced. And I think with 64th Century magicians and talking gorillas that’s saying a lot.
Head over to The Source to read the whole interview. Or the whole first half, anyway. Part two goes up tomorrow.
