Impulse TPB Gets Release Date & Description

Impulse #1

Thanks to Collected Editions for spotting this: The Amazon listing for Impulse Vol. 1: Runs in the Family features a new description and a release date of March 5, 2013. If the date is not a placeholder (and doesn’t change), the collection should arrive in comic shops the previous Wednesday, February 27.

The teenage grandson of the Flash, Impulse was born and raised in a “video game” virtual environment in the 30th century. But when the rash teenager was transported back to the 20th century, his entire life changed. This humorous book profiles Impulse’s earliest adventures in rural Alabama under the tutelage of elder speedster Max Mercury. Oblivious to the concept of actions having consequences, the reckless youth must come to terms with both his incredible powers and the absurd situations that their use can result in, all the while trying to cope with the insanity of high school. In this new edition of Impulse’s adventures, the teen speedster meets teen villain White Lightning, Blockbuster, and, from the 30th century, Legion of Super-Heroes member XS.

DC’s announcement last month indicates that the book will collect Impulse #1-6, 8-9 and 12-13.

    I’m wondering if this has anything to do with Impulse turning up in the Young Justice cartoon series or if maybe DC has plans to bring in a new Impulse in the comics.

    Great for new fans, but I think I already have all of those issues in Flash trades and Mercury Rising. Will have to check.
