The New 52 Bart Allen has a dark secret, one that is finally coming to light as we prepare for the “Trial of Kid Flash” in Teen Titans #25. But, just what DID he do…and how did he end up in our present time? There’s a LOT more to this story, and that’s where we pick up with the latest issue of Teen Titans.
LIGHT SPOILERS ONLY
DC has posted a preview of Flash #9 (out next week), along with the final covers.
FLASH issue nine, on sale next Wednesday, kicks off the much anticipated Prelude to FLASHPOINT storyline. Writer Geoff Johns and artist Francis Manapul are crafting a murder mystery with a heck of a twist. Who dies? We won’t say here (yet), but we’ll let this question linger: “You recognize the costume?”
Interestingly, it seems they’ve swapped the primary covers for Flash #9 and Flash #10 to keep the “character-focused” theme running through January’s books as close to January as possible. And while the book was originally solicited with a Scott Kolins variant cover, it’s being shipped with one by Tyler Kirkham.
They’ve also replaced the “Brightest Day” banner with “The Road to Flashpoint.”
Read the preview at The Source or at CBR.
Update: Francis Manapul has been posting scans of the uncolored interior artwork on his DeviantArt page: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, Page 5, and Page 6.
