Early Preview is up for Flash #30

Flash #30The first issue of The Flash by the new creative team won’t hit shelves until the end of the month, but DC has released a preview already (Newsarama). The issue opens five years into the future, with the Flash making a horrifying discovery, before the story jumps back to the present day.

An all-new creative team makes its debut to show the deadly consequences of The Flash’s speed powers. During the traumatic events of FOREVER EVIL, Central City suffered the worst that the Crime Syndicate could dish out. Now The Flash has returned to make things right, but there are limits to what even the Fastest Man Alive can do!

    Wow, really like the artwork for this! Looking forward to it, hope it’s good. Hope they do a good job with Barry.

    I like the artwork acccept for one thing. This is really dumb I realize but the hands bend too far out. It throws me off, and its just like he did for Kid Flash. Which works for that character (or did is he gone for awhile?). Other than that very petty personal critique I I am super excited! Wally is finally coming back soon!!!

    Isn’t Wally supposed to appear in the Flash Annual? I wouldn’t be surprised if it was just another tease like with the future Flash from the cover.

    I don’t think it’s Wally. I think it’s Wally’s dad, which will lay the groundwork for Barry “repairing” his relationship with the son of the man he couldn’t save. If this happens, I won’t be mad that Wally’s black, but I will be mad that orphanhood has been thrust upon another Flash character that does not need it.

      Then again, this is the future-prologue part of a time travel story. Anything that starts out “You could have prevented this!” right before time travel is usually at least in part about trying to prevent it. (Not that it worked out very well in Flashpoint…)

      Remember the spray-painted graffiti on the walls of the Central City police building? I have a theory that Wally is responsible for that (assuming he’s the kid spray-painting “Flash Sux” on the cover of the annual). Maybe, however, Wally isn’t a punk. Maybe he’s an activist. “Occupy Central City” anyone? Perfect way for him to cross paths with Piper.
