This Week: Dark Flash Returns to Digital (Plus a Flash/Superman Race)

It looks like DC Comics’ digital Flash back-issues are back on track, with Flash #157 available on Wednesday. With Wally and Linda apparently gone, Abra Kadabra recruits Replicant and sends him after Walter West. The rest of the speedsters have a plan…but what does the Reverse Flash have to do with it all?

After this there are only two issues left of the Dark Flash saga (it wraps in #159), and then one more issue by Waid and Augustyn (#161, an epilogue in which disasters seem to follow everywhere Wally and Linda try to honeymoon). Two one-shots fill in the gap before Geoff Johns’ run begins with #163.

Update: As Wayne points out in the comments below, DC has also released Adventures of Superman #463, the first race between Wally West and Superman from way back in 1990. (Superman/Flash races are a looong tradition.)

    I’m still angry that digital is the death knell for them ever making trades of the Wally/Flash stories other than the Geoff Johns ones (more than 2/3rds of which I found inferior to the Waid and Messner/Loeb tales.) Still haven’t touched digital.
    Maybe if they have a really, really good sell on them during the (if it ever appears) Flash movie promotion then I’d buy some of my favorite stories so I could print out my best loved scenes.
    Would rather have physical paper even if it does cost me more.

    Don’t forget about the digital release of Adventures of Superman #463 (from 1990), when Superman races Wally West (for the first time, I think)!

      I can’t believe I missed that! I guess that’s what I get for skimming for “Flash” and “Impulse” rather than actually reading the whole list.
