The Flash’s New Boots Explained

They help me run faster.

The webcomic Shortpacked! explains all the extra detail on the Flash’s new, post-relaunch boots. Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?

Read the whole strip for Batman’s reaction.

Hmm, I wonder if the chin guard helps him breathe in space?

    That was so cute! And Batman…oh, Batman. lol

    Only thing is that’s something silly I’d imagine DCAU Wally doing and not Barry (any version.)

    Plus, am I the only one finding the webcomics based on DC characters to be more fun and beloved than anything DC has been putting out of late with all the dark, grim & gritty? I find myself actually pining for the days of Super Friends, bad animation and all. gah.

    That IS hilarious in a Wally West sort of way. Now in a related subject, different color footwear works for The Flash; not so much for The Man of Steel. I’m guessing it’s too late to make Superman’s boots BLUE like the rest of the otherwise GREAT new costume. Yes, I said it. AND I like the new Barry Allen costume as well… including the chin guard.

    Okay, I’d start laughing my ass off right now, but will refrain in order as to not snark off the solely Barry fans any more than they are going to be….

    But the cartoonist at Tumbler just did another cartoon at his site where he explains why Barry is acting more like Wally.
