The best part of “Flash War” to me is also what makes the REBIRTH era so much fun – we are finally recognizing everything in the rich history of the DCU. Most especially here, we are seeing the best of both Barry’s Silver Age time and Wally’s era as the lead Flash as well. While a lot of fans are picking #TeamBarry or #TeamWally, you really don’t have to pick a side to enjoy THIS ride. We are in the middle of what could well be the most significant story arc since before the New52 began, and that’s exceptionally good news! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!

I didn’t catch nearly as many Flash-themed cosplayers at this year’s WonderCon as I did at last year’s, but I get the impression from looking online that there were a lot more, and I just missed them! Here are the people I did find wearing Flash and related costumes. I actually saw at least three Killer Frosts, though I only caught two on camera. You can see my full WonderCon gallery on Flickr.
