Flash #8 Preview Available

DC has posted a preview of Flash #8 (arriving next week), along with the final covers by Scott Kolins and Stanley “Artgerm” Lau. It’s the second of two Rogue Profile issues by Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins. Francis Manapul returns next issue for the second story arc, “Hot Pursuit.”

For some reason I didn’t expect them to actually call the book “Reverse-Flash Rebirth.” Read on at the Source or at CBR.

    Looks good! I am looking forward to this issue. I wasn’t going to get the variant cover for it, but it just looks too cool to pass up.

    Um…What? Does that actually say that Barry was struck by lighting in the 21st Century? Did I miss something? Because if Barry was struck in -say- 2000, then when was Wally struck by a bolt?

    I am confused.

      Sliding scale of comics time. The start of the silver age seems to fluctuate between 10 and 20 years ago, and this fits the short end of that cycle. In a couple of years it’ll be solid, and calling him the 20th century’s Flash will seem odd.

      Anyway, Wally was struck by lightning pretty early in Barry’s career. Say 2001 for now?

    Something I’ve not mentioned before… “Eobard”?! If my parents had named me that I’d likely have ended up a super-villain as well. As unusual a name as little bro, “Robbern” is, at least he can shorten it to “Rob.”
