You know, I really want to believe DiDio and company fooled all of us with those false Flash #14 and #15 solicitations, but something in the back of my head keeps saying “I don’t buy it, this was a last minute change to placate fanboys”.
For those of you concerned about the fate of Flash and the possibility of going months without another issue, DC has released information regarding The Flash #231 and All-Flash #1.
Scheduled to arrive in stores on July 18, ALL-FLASH #1 (MAY070162) is written by Mark Waid with art by Karl Kerschl, Ian Churchill, Manuel Garcia, Joe Bennett and Daniel Acuña. This issue features covers by Joshua Middleton and Bill Sienkiewicz, which will arrive in stores in a split of approximately 50/50. This issue spotlights the aftermath of THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #13.
In addition, the ordering incentive on THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14 remains in effect on ALL-FLASH #1. Retailers who already placed orders on THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14 equal to or greater than 200% of final orders on THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #10 (JAN070287) will be allowed to make full returns on this issue at a later date. Retailers still may increase orders on ALL-FLASH #1 through the Final Order Cutoff date of June 28 to qualify for this offer.
Scheduled to arrive in stores on August 15, THE FLASH #231 (JUN070188) is written by Mark Waid with art by Daniel Acuña and covers by Doug Braithwaite and Acuña which will arrive in stores in a split of approximately 50/50. This issue features the start of a new story arc that takes the Flash family in an unexpected new direction.
