How often do you get asked questions you can't answer about the world of FLASHPOINT?

Dan Abnett: I can’t answer that question.

Jimmy Palmiotti : About once a day on Twitter, at every convention and once at the airport coming into the country by homeland security.

There are a lot of unanswered questions about FLASHPOINT and, starting today, we're going to start laying out some of the answers. Many of the key creators working on the FLASHPOINT mini-series will be joining us, as we pull back the curtain on this summer's superhero event.

New variants for the week

We have some nice art to help you get through the midweek slump. First up, the cover to THE FLASH #10 by the incredible Francis Manapul followed by the variant of GREEN LANTERN CORPS #58 by Tyler Kirkham. Next up are both JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #22 covers. The standard is by Dustin Nguyen and the variant by Kevin Maguire. Rounding out the bunch is the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #55 variant by Dan Jurgens.

Dan Jurgens returns to BOOSTER GOLD (and kicks off a Flashpoint prelude story!)

Writer/artist Dan Jurgens will return to the character he made a fan-favorite in BOOSTER GOLD #44, which'll serve as a lead-in to the much-anticipated Flashpoint event.

See Rip Hunter's blackboard at the end of TIME MASTERS: VANISHING POINT #6? Then you know Booster's got his work cut out for him! Check out the cover to Jurgens' first issue below, chock full of Flashpoint clues.

This Just Happened: One Way or Another, These Things Come to Pass

WARNING: if you hate spoilers, stop reading now.

Remember the scribblings on the blackboard in 52? Well, they're back and in a major way in the final pages of TIME MASTERS: VANISHING POINT issue 6, on sale today.

How important might these mysterious scribblings be?

They lead into the pages of BOOSTER GOLD issue 44... And a comic book we call FLASHPOINT issue 1.

A look at the Blackboard is after the jump. This is your last chance to look away.

Mike Carlin on returning to an iconic Death of Superman image

[gallery link="file" columns="2"]

Do the above two images look similar? The first is the iconic spread by Jon Bogdanove and Dennis Janke from the classic Death of Superman storyline, the second is by Dan Jurgens and Jerry Ordway for next week's DCU Legacies #8.

A few words from the book's editor, Mike Carlin, who also edited the original Death of Superman story:

Michael Siglain on all things Halloween

Source-rers!

At long last, the day has finally arrived: All Hallow's Eve...eve’s eve. (All right, so it's not the big day, but it's in my own best interest to write this tomb today, and not tomorrow, during DC’s Halloween festivities, as there is a very good chance that I will be covered in blood tomorrow. I may also be in costume, but that's another story.)
