Flashpoint #1 Cover Revealed

DC has another Flashpoint tease today: the cover to issue #1.

We’ve seen the image before. It’s the one they used to announce the 14 miniseries last week. This time, the Andy Kubert/Sandra Hope art is in full color.

That’s clearly Aquaman, Cyborg and Batman in the background. I can’t place the one in armor on the right – maybe Wonder Woman? Update: Thanks, Lia. Definitely Wonder Woman!

The red/blue contrast really makes the Flash pop out of the cover.

I’ve got to admit, it’s cool to really see the Flash at the center of one of DC’s big events!

Flashpoint: An Epic of Epic Epicness?

For today’s Flashpoint Friday, DC Comics said a few words about the scope of the event, which is “so big and ambitious that there will be fifteen mini series expanding on the events, along with several important one shots.”

Yeah, you read that right.

  • One central 5-issue miniseries by Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert.
  • 15 tie-in miniseries.
  • “Several” “important” one-shots.

DC will be announcing 14 of the 15 miniseries’ titles this afternoon.

They also add, for those readers who haven’t quite tumbled to the fact, that “This isn’t a parallel Earth. This isn’t a mirror world. This is home.

There may be something to last week’s Bleeding Cool rumor that DC will alter their publishing line during the event. With 15 miniseries, I can imagine DC putting 15 titles on hiatus for a few months and publishing the minis instead. Not necessarily the best timing with the Green Lantern movie coming out, but there’s undoubtedly more to the plans.

Also of note: The creative team was described as “Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert and Sandra Hope.” I don’t remember Sandra Hope being mentioned in connection with the title before. It may be that she’s been doing the inks all along and they were only publicizing Andy Kubert’s more-famous name, or it may be that she’s been brought to ink the later issues so that Kubert has more time to finish the pencils.

(Apologies to Scott Pilgrim for the headline.)

Flash #6 Variant Cover by Ale Garza

DC has posted four variant covers on The Source, including Ale Garza’s cover for The Flash #6. Edit: The solicitation credits Ale Garza and Sandra Hope. I can’t read the signatures, so I’m guessing she’s the inker.

The first four issues of the series featured alternate covers that had little to do with the story: the Flash running, or changing into his costume. The fifth (coming late September) will be part of the massive 12-part White Lantern image for Brightest Day. This is the first one to relate directly to the story, featuring the Flash vs. the Renegades.

The Flash #6 is currently scheduled for October 27.
