Barry Sounds A Little Like…Someone Else (Review of Justice League #18)

justice league 18Justice League #18 begins a story arc centering on Cyborg, with interesting parallels to some pre-Flashpoint tales.  But, rather than Batman having files on all the heroes in the DCU, it is now Cyborg who has been tracking and filing info on every hero operating in the New52.  While this is most useful in sending invitations to potential League members, there is always some danger in keeping those kinds of files…and that obviously will lead us into the next few issues of JL.  The moments of most interest to Flash fans, however, concern Wal…I mean Barry’s interactions with the other League members and with the potential members invited to the Watchtower.

Flash #19 Fold-Out Cover Revealed

Flash #19 Fold-Out Cover by Francis Manapul

DC Comics has unveiled the Flash #19 fold-out cover at Newsarama. To no great surprise, it turns out to feature the new Reverse-Flash, who recently debuted in Flash #17.

Actually, I do find it a bit odd that the Reverse-Flash is holding a bloody bicycle helmet.

DC’s April covers all feature a fold-out with a surprise twist on the right side of the image (at one point they were referred to as “WTF Certified,” but that terminology has been dropped), though how many are really surprises is hard to say. The Flash is featured on the “surprise” side of Dial H #11 cover, and Kid Flash on the Vibe #3 cover. The Flash also appears on the teaser sides of Justice League Dark #19 & DC Universe Presents #19, though the full covers to those comics haven’t been released yet.

Flash #19 also has a MAD-themed variant cover.
