Way back in the day, the one writer who made me a huge fan of everything Flash was Mark Waid. He had a super run (pun intended) on the series, and today DC announced Waid would be returning to Flash this fall.
But wait, that’s not all! Flash: The Fastest Man Alive will be ending with issue #13, and the new series will pick up with Flash #231 written by Waid, with penciler Daniel Acuna. This September we’ll also get a one shot called All Flash #1 with a slew of artists.
But what Flash will Waid be writing about? What will happen in next week’s Flash #13?
In an interview with Newsarama, Waid said, “Yeah. Those who pick up the last issue of Flash: The Fastest Man Alive next week will get a big part of it there, and those who pick up the end of the Justice League/Justice Society team-up the same day, when it ships, will get another gigantic part of the puzzle right there too. And then we just continue the momentum from there. We talked about a million ways to go with it, but this is going to be huge. It’s really, truly huge.”
Ooo! Ooo! If you read that in the right frame of mind with everything else we’ve been talking about on this little site of ours, it does look like we may be seeing the return of Barry Allen next week! Remember, as someone pointed out, Wally West technically isn’t dead.
Welcome back Mark! You were really missed on this series.
Wanting to maintain our embargo on the cover information (even though it has been posted on another site), I’ll just say this “Stay tuned for the complete DC rundown on Monday, which will feature the full cover image and the solicitation info as well.”
