Batman and Flash have several things in common – a nose for detective work, a desire to right the wrongs that bad people do…and a single-mindedness that at times blinds them to the feelings of others. What is…the price of that? We are finding some of those answers right here, and they aren’t pleasant. That’s where we stand in Part 2 of “The Price”, in THE FLASH #64. Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
Batman and the Flash share a great sense of loss…and guilt. Batman was one of the architects of Sanctuary, the healing place for heroes where Wally and so many others died in HEROES IN CRISIS. Barry Allen carries guilt for sending Wally there. Now, can they work together…or will they tear themselves apart for good? We begin with “The Price of Justice”, the first of four crossover issues with Batman and The Flash. Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
While the announcement makes no mention of the “Gotham” TV show launching soon, ComiXology is running a Gotham Central sale with over 100 issues of the series and other Batman books discounted to 99 cents each. That includes the 4-part “Keystone Cops” story in Gotham Central #28-31, which sees Detectives Montoya and Allen pursuing a case to Keystone City and the captive Dr. Alchemy, who may be the source of a bizarre chemical weapon used on a Gotham City police officer. Keystone City Detectives Chyre and Morillo and Rogue profiler Ashley Zolomon guest star as well.
With any luck there will be a Flash sale in the coming weeks as well, especially since DC stopped releasing the 1987-2008 series without finishing it. (Most of the Geoff Johns/Howard Porter run is missing, plus for issues of Waid/Augustyn).
