When I was growing up, I loved 80-page Giants! In those days, these books cost like a quarter and were reprints from 5-10 years earlier. But I hadn’t read them, so I pored over each and every story! It was an adventure into tales I hadn’t read before, but still grew to love. DC Universe: Rebirth #1 is a lot like those wonderful comics. There’s a LOT going on, some of it touching on recent comics stories, others going back into previous DC storylines I enjoy remembering.
Even though the CW’s pilot episode of The Flash leaked online almost a month ago, San Diego Comic Con aired the episode today before their second comics-based show, iZombie, was slated to make it’s debut. In the end iZombie was a no show stating “cast changes” ominously – a similar fate which has befallen NBC’s Constantine given the early fan reaction to their own leaked pilot.
In the race to the relaunch, DC’s “Flashpoint” hits its half way point. With the trio of Flash, Batman, and Cyborg hunting for their hopeful Kryptonian savior, can this issue make it to the finish line without falling flat on its face? Take the jump, and find out!

For those wondering which Flash will be featured, one only has to look to the current Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns. Yes, it will be Barry Allen, the character Johns is all soft and mushy for. via THR
While DC has maintained Wally West and Bart Allen would continue to play a big role in the Flash Universe – there were statements made that BOTH Wally and Barry would continue to be the Flash – Dan DiDio quashed those claims in an interview with Newsarama.Â DiDio stated that Barry would be the only Flash in 2010, as the Wally West back up stories, and the Kid Flash title have both been dropped. When Johns brought Green Lantern back, at least Guy Gardner and Kyle Rayner had the Green Lantern Crops to return to where we could follow their
Our non-scientific poll has closed, and fans have responded: They want Wally West back in the pages of the Flash! Of course the poll ends just in time for Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #13 to arrive, marking the end of the series. Will Bart die? Is Wally really coming back, or will it be pre-Crisis Barry Allen? Come back on Wednesday for our first day release review of Flash for all the answers. And with the closing of the Flash poll, it’s time to turn our attention to Marvel and one Tony Stark. Is Tony a Skrull? Take the
