The gang’s all here…including some blasts from the past no one would have expected (unless you’ve seen all the promos, trailers, articles and other spoilers for who would show up). It’s the 100th Episode of THE FLASH! We have a VERY wild ride ahead, so let’s just go straight to the review, right? Right!
Joshua Williamson has delivered an amazing end to FLASH WAR, with all the elements one needs for an epic conclusion. The battle ends with major consequences for all. Not all the outcomes are good…but some are outstanding! We set the stage for HUGE adventures going forward without diminishing the impact of this arc. And, we finally answer the question, “Who IS the Fastest Man Alive?” Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
SPOILERS AHEAD! If you haven’t read THE FLASH #50, STOP HERE and read it first! You will be glad you did!
FLASH WAR is turning out to have a massive scope – the entire Justice League is out to stop Barry and Wally as they race around the world. Zoom has sent Wally on a mission to break the Speed Force itself, thinking that this was the only way to save his family. Will it work? Can Barry stop him? Can anyone stop Wally? Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
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!
Are you #TeamBarry or #TeamWally? The BIG storyline we’ve been waiting for is finally here, as FLASH WAR begins right here in THE FLASH #47! This issue gives us a glimpse of people we haven’t seen since the New52 began, but not for the reasons you might suspect. This should be a very wild ride – want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
I only made it to one afternoon at Long Beach Comic Con this year, so my experience was really rushed. Even so, I managed to attend a panel on the Lawyers of Hell’s Kitchen, caught up (briefly) with several artists and writers, picked up some toys for the kid and checked out a ton of artwork. This is the con’s eighth year, and they’ve moved to a bigger section of the convention center. That involved moving the entrance to the other side, which had a bigger impact on the feel of the show than you might expect.
No Flash news, unfortunately. There was a DC panel the previous day, but not the day I was there. And while I did meet Brett Booth (he had set up next to Norm Rapmund’s regular table in Artist’s Alley), I had to cut the visit short in order to make it to the one panel I mentioned. He was telling a story about having to redo covers and redesign characters at the last minute during the Rebirth launch.
There was some impressive cosplay, including this Zoom. I’ve seen photos on Instagram, but his costume is even more impressive in person. (Staying in character, he leaned toward me after the photo, pointing an intimidating finger at my Flash T-shirt, and growled menacingly.)
