Annotations: The Trial of The Flash, #s 337, 338 & 339 – The “Lost” Issues

Welcome to the latest installment in our annotations of the collected edition of The Trial of the Flash!  A while back, we analyzed related stories leading up to the release of Showcase Presents: The Trial of the Flash.  In addition, we interviewed author Cary Bates about the buildup and the Trial itself, plus showed you what wasn’t included in the collection (important to this post).

Hey Speed Readers,

So a couple days ago Wizkids announced via ICV2 their very first exclusively Flash-themed HeroClix set. The Flash is scheduled for release in the Fall and Wizkids is going all out for this set. Not only will we be getting a standard 68 piece set, we can also look forward to a 24 piece Primer Gravity Feed set featuring rare and unique sculpts (kind of a sneak peek/sampler) and a 6 piece Fast Forces set spotlighting the Rogues to kick things off. Take a look after the jump.

Media Blitz!: Booth on Wally, Johns on Cold (via Newsarama)

Newsarama has been busy with Flash-related news and interviews over the past few days, and you can find links and relevant snippets here (read the articles for the full details).  Some of this information should be considered spoilers, so proceed with caution.

First, they talked to Brett Booth about how Wally West will be handled in the New 52.

Nrama: Let’s talk about what you guys are facing now. We’ve had two and a half years of the New 52 with no Flash except Barry Allen. What’s the biggest challenge about introducing Wally West at this time, with Barry already established?
