This week* sees the release of the second issue of Flashpoint, as well as four of the tie-in miniseries.
Written by GEOFF JOHNS; Art and cover by ANDY KUBERT and SANDRA HOPE; Black and White Variant cover A by ANDY KUBERT; Variant cover B by IVAN REIS and GEORGE PÉREZ
The world-changing miniseries continues! Where are the World’s Greatest Super Heroes? Barry Allen is on a mission to find out or die trying – and that may be what’s happening as he tries to make lightning strike twice! Meanwhile, around the submerged Paris, the pirate Deathstroke confronts Emperor Aquaman!
*(There’s a bit of confusion on this point. DC’s website has said from the start that Flashpoint #2 comes out next week, and there’s no preview out, but Diamond says it’s shipping this week, and my local comic shop expects to get it in as well.)
- Flashpoint: Abin Sur, the Green Lantern
- Flashpoint: Batman, Knight of Vengeance
- Flashpoint: Secret Seven
- Flashpoint: The World of Flashpoint
Coverage at Speed Force
Since the event is so huge, we’ll be focusing on the directly-Flash-related series here. Flashpoint itself, of course, plus Citizen Cold, Kid Flash Lost, Legion of Doom (starring Heat Wave), and the Grodd of War and Reverse Flash one-shots. That’s still a big job (and yeah, I know I’m late with Flashpoint #1), so we’ve broken the books down among our regular contributors.
I work at a comic book shop: I can attest that Flashpoint #2 came out today. Along with Abin Sur, Batman Knight of Vengeance, World/Flashpoint and Secret Seven, too.
yep it came out today… but that’s strange because DC hasn’t teased the release…
Maybe it is a conveniant error (the same day that Fear itself 3) ?
If Barry is teaming up with Batman, wouldn’t that FP title likely heavily feature Barry as well and thus warrant a review on here?
But knowing DC I could be completely wrong about that. It might be worth consideration for a review if it turns out I’m right though.
Flashpoint has had great cliffhangers so far. Glad I’ll have Citizen Cold, Grodd, Legion of Doom and Kid Flash to tide me over until #3!
