Mark Waid, Empire vol.2, and the Flash TV Show

Two quick updates on Mark Waid, who wrote Wally West’s adventures as The Flash for about 100 issues and almost the entire decade of the 1990s.

1. He’s seen the Flash TV pilot, and thinks it’s great.

Replying to Greg Berlanti:

Empire2. Waid and Barry Kitson’s Empire vol.2 launches next week on Thrillbent. The original miniseries told the story of what happens after when the world’s greatest super-villain conquers the planet. What’s left? The description for volume 2:

But where is his strength coming from? The sole loyalist who kept him anchored to humanity is one year gone, and on the anniversary of Golgoth’s loss, several seemingly coordinated new threats are surfacing around the globe. Each presents its own unique threat to the throne, and if Golgoth wants to maintain the crown, he will have to divide his forces–and his attentions–in dangerous new ways.

The out-of-print Empire volume 1 will also be available on Thrillbent as part of the all-you-can-read $3.99 monthly subscription for the entire catalog.

    How did he manage to see it? Did someone from WB send him a copy of the pilot?

    Either way, its good to know that he liked it. Here’s hoping the rest of the series lives up to the hype as well.

    – “My name is Barry Allen, and I’m the fastest man alive.” I can’t wipe this stupid smile off my face.-
    Well…(sigh) I guess if Mark Waid is not offended by the taking of that famous line for Barry’s use I guess I can let my lingering grudge slide.
    Or -try- to.

    Btw, is anyone else increasingly disliking the new costume rather than the other way around the more times they see it? It started with just being annoyed by the ear lighting stubs and the thickness of the fabric, the lack of much gold on the boots. Now even the helmet eye holes are making me wince. I’m starting to see the Batman cowl in red. Don’t know if its the humped edges on the eyes or the shape of the edge on his cheeks, but am liking it less and less.
