DC Comics has slipped us a promo image for Flash #13 that could spell the end of Bart Allen, or the return of Barry Allen. As usual, when DC sends these things out, it generally means something big is ahead (see Emo Superman post from several months ago that teased Countdown), or it could mean you need to take the jump and do some sleuthing yourself.
If you believe the literal meaning of the tag, then it has something to do with the goings on in the current Countdown story, which I’ve already mentioned in those reviews.
From the solicitation information for Flash #13, DC sent the following:
THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #13
Written by Mark Guggenheim
Art by Tony S. Daniel & Art Thibert
Cover by Tony S. Daniel
The Flash must make the choice he was offered at the beginning of “Full Throttle.” And you won’t want to miss the stunning full version of this cover — but you only can catch it when this issue races into stores!
On sale June 6 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US
Check out the cover that features certain elements missing:
What is being blacked out? could we be seeing a story featuring multiple Flashes (Flashii?)? Could this be the “Whatever Happened to Wally West?” story we’ve been waiting for, or something else entirely?
We’ll find out next week!
