DC’s November 2019 Solicitations

DC has posted the full complement of solicitations for November 2019, and here are all the ones relating to the Flash. That month sees the “Year Of The Villain” story in full swing, with the villains on the offensive and the heroes very much on the defensive, and the Rogues have all been powered up with technology to deadly effect.

You can see that month’s solicits in their entirety at Newsarama.

THE FLASH #82

acetate cover by GUILLEM MARCH
variant cover by KAMOME SHIRAHAMA
“Rogues Reign” part one! The speed force is dead, doom has gripped the earth, and the FLASH lives in a nightmare! Powered-up by Lex Luthor’s offer, Captain Cold led his team of Rogues to ultimate victory over Central City. Through the might of Mirror Master’s amplified abilities, the rogues have re-shaped reality itself into their own kingdoms of cruelty – Heat Wave’s volcanic territory, Weather Wizard’s floating armory of the elements, and at the center of it all, the icy castle of Captain Cold. But with the villains stealing the show, why is the greatest threat to their reign one of their own?

To do that he must venture out in the path of the tumultuous terrain of the Weather Wizard Kingdom— where ice dogs and lightning monsters lurk in the darkness at every turn!
