Flash #24 Preview Art from NYCC

Flash #24 Preview

DC unveiled two pages of art from Flash #24 at their New 52 panel in NYCC today. Not much else came out about the Flash at this panel, except that the Reverse-Flash’s actions are twisting time, making him “more monstrous.”

No word yet on the new creative team.

When asked about Wally West, Brian Buccellato assured fans that “When the time is right, Wally will return. Don’t applaud–I don’t know when that will be” — basically the usual “hang in there” response.

    Art looks fantastic as usual with this creative team- can’t wait to see how “monstrous” the Reverse-Flash will become. I like the idea that this is a consequence of messing with time. Maybe the tampering with time thing will be a way Wally can be reintroduced. On the subject of Wally, I do believe Brian- but I also have a feeling it’ll be a long wait. Expect to see Flash Re-Rebirth with Wally West as the big event of 2025! 😛

      So long as it’s far enough in the future for it to be something that really matters, I’m fine with it.
      What made Wally interesting was his relationship to Barry, and his always having to live up to Barry’s legacy. We need Barry to have a huge legacy before Wally can take up the tights.

      After that? Hell yeah, let’s re-explore that aspect of the Flash mythos!

        You’re absolutely correct, there’s alot of character & legacy building to be done with this incarnation of Barry before Wally is introduced. If Wally is a teen, he could be introduced sooner, if Wally is more like the adult most of us are familiar with, then they definitely need to build up Barry’s history & legacy in this revamped universe.

    We don’t need Barry to have a huge legacy before Wally is introduced. Barry didn’t have a huge legacy the first time Wally was introduced; maybe only a couple of years. If Wally’s going to be the primary Flash again, yeah, they should build to that, but they really needed to start building it up much earlier. A character has to exist before relationships can be developed.

      I agree with this too- like I said above if Wally is a teen, then I see no problem with his introduction, but if he is to be brought back full-on Flash, Barry needs to be established more as a legend & have a legacy in this universe.

    Don’t want to see Wally brought back as Flash, would rather see him return as his own character if he returns at all.

      I agree with this 100%. I think that now is the time for Wally to have his own identity, like Dick Grayson as Nightwing. We all know the hero he can be, regardless of the name- I know Wally can forge his own heroic legacy beyond the Flash, as Dick Grayson did. Since Barry is going to be the Flash for the forseeable future(no complaints from me since the series is great), & Bart is Kid Flash, I think this is a logical solution. I always thought “Mercury” would be a cool name, kind of a nod to Max Mercury, but able to stand on its own.

    And I don’t see Wally as needing Barry at all. (Would have been nice to have had them together, but remember that some of us were introduced to Wally months and many trade books before we knew Barry even existed beyond this older guy named “Flash” in a Super Friends cartoon show. I don’t kneed a 2-pack potato sack race ensemble to enjoy Wally. For that, I’d be ecstatic to see adult Wally running with Jay or Max….eh, well, Max now. Earth 2 kind of ruined it for me on Jay. Linda would also be a major plus.

    DC52 Flash artwork continues to knock it out of the park.
