On August 31st, the fifth and final installment of Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert’s bestselling series, FLASHPOINT, hits stores. That day will also see the launch of DC Comics-The New 52, with the release of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee’s JUSTICE LEAGUE #1. During today’s FLASHPOINT panel at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that in order to transition into this exciting and historic new era for the comic book industry, FLASHPOINT #5 will provide a bridge that will lead to DC Comics-The New 52. “When FLASHPOINT started, we said ‘everything you know will change in a flash!’” said FLASHPOINT editor and DC Entertainment Executive Editor, Eddie Berganza. “Look through FLASHPOINT as well as the various mini-series and you start to get a hint at what that change means with DC Comics-The New 52! And with FLASHPOINT #5, you will clearly see how it all comes about … and we give you other things to ponder as the DC Comics-The New 52 start to come out. August 31st is just the beginning!”
