Preview Up for Flash Annual #2

Flash Annual #2 (via Comic Vine)Comic Vine has a 7-page preview of Flash Annual #2, on sale next week.

Find out how The Flash and Green Lantern first met when a case they teamed up together to solve years ago rears its head again in the present! It involves a foe neither of them can defeat on their own, and they might not have much luck together either! The outcome of this will affect The Flash for years to come… Plus, a backup story by Nicole Dubuc (the Young Justice cartoon)!

Flash Annual #2 First Look

DC has a preview of its July annuals, including Flash Annual #2, shipping July 31. The main story by Brian Buccellato and Sami Basri guest-stars Green Lantern, looking back at the first meeting (in new 52 continuity) of Hal Jordan and Barry Allen. Judging by the preview page, they don’t start off very well. (Do two heroes ever meet for the first time and start by, you know, working together?)

On a related note, last week Newsarama interviewed Nicole Dubuc about her back-up story in the book, about “a man who has lost his wife in a fire — and he blames the Flash for not saving her.”

DC has a spotlight article and a preview of the issue.

Flash #111As far as back issues go, ComiXology is releasing Flash #110-111 and Impulse #12. This concludes the “Dead Heat” crossover started last week. The Flash and his allies have tracked Savitar to his lair, but can one Flash and a team of powerless speedsters stand against an army of super-speed ninjas? And how can Wally West defeat someone who has dedicated his life to studying the speed force?

In the aftermath, time-lost Legionnaire Jenni Ognats (XS) joins her cousin Bart Allen trying to fit in as a 20th-century teenager.
