Flashpoint: Everything Changes in a Flash — 14 Miniseries Titles Announced

DC has posted a new Flashpoint teaser, including the titles of fourteen of the fifteen tie-in miniseries, broken down by category:

Whatever Happened to Gotham City?

FLASHPOINT: BATMAN KNIGHT OF VENGEANCE #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: DEADMAN AND THE FLYING GRAYSONS #1-#3

Whatever Happened to the World’s Greatest Super Villains?

FLASHPOINT: CITIZEN COLD #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: DEATHSTROKE & THE CURSE OF THE RAVAGER #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: THE OUTSIDER #1-#3

Whatever Happened to the Aliens?

FLASHPOINT: ABIN SUR THE GREEN LANTERN #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: PROJECT: SUPERMAN #1-#3

Whatever Happened to Science & Magic?

FLASHPOINT: FRANKENSTEIN & THE CREATURES OF THE UNKNOWN #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: SECRET SEVEN #1-#3

Whatever Happened to Europe?

FLASHPOINT: EMPEROR AQUAMAN #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: WONDER WOMAN AND THE FURIES #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: LOIS LANE AND THE RESISTANCE #1-#3

Everything You Know Will Change in a Flash

FLASHPOINT: KID FLASH LOST #1-#3
FLASHPOINT: THE WORLD OF FLASHPOINT #1-#3

So, they’re all 3-issue miniseries. DC might run some of them during the first part of the event and others during the second part, but I think it’s more likely to play out this way:

May: Flashpoint #1 and some of the one-shots.
June-August: Flashpoint #2-4 and the minis.
September: Flashpoint #5 and the rest of the one-shots.

Assuming, of course, that the whole thing stays on schedule. It’s also still possible that the related regular series will be suspended during June-August while the altered miniseries run instead.

Citizen Cold is obviously going to center on Captain Cold.

So, Kid Flash Lost. Wally West? Bart Allen? Or Iris “Irey” West II? As much as I’d like to see the Kingdom Come version of Kid Flash again, I think the best match with the title is time anomaly Bart Allen, who has a history of resisting changes to the timeline (Impulse: Bart Saves the Universe, the Dark Flash saga) and will once again be trapped in a world changed from the one he remembers.

    Wow, stunning. DC, you definitely get points for brashness and naked bold ambition.

    However, the CBR article covering this release states that at a $2.99 cover price, following this entire event could possibly cost a reader nearly $150.

    Sorry, DC, I don’t have that much cash available. If anything, I’ll only follow the tie-ins directly related to Flash.

      Agreed. As much as I’m looking forward to Flashpoint, DC can kiss my ass. Timeline changes or not, this is FAR too many tie-ins. I’m going to stick with the core series, the GL tie-ins, and maybe Kid Flash and Citizen Cold. Everything else I might – stress MIGHT – pick up in TPB form from Amazon.

          So long as that’s the case, I can live with it.
          The Flashpoint mini series HAS to be a complete beginning, middle & end of itself.
          Anything else would be a big F.U from DC.

    Bart’s the Flashpoint!

    Seriously, with all the weird stuff he’s caught in the middle of (family feuds, timeline changes, resurrection etc.), I don’t think it’s entirely out of the realm of possibility.

    This seems really unnecessary. The only books I have any interest in are Kid Flash Lost and World of Flashpoint. The Citizen Cold one might have ok as a one-shot, but seriously, 15 mini-series plus one-shots? Talk about overkill. Is it ambitious? Sure. Is it worth my money? Most likely not.

    I will definitely buy The Flash and Flashpoint, but wait for the trade on the others. I am just excited that Flash is getting all this attention, with his own event, after all these years.
