It seems like just yesterday that I was flying back from San Diego Comic-Con and now here we are and it’s time for the next stop on the 2010 DC Nation tour – Fan Expo Canada at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Canada from August 27-29. Actually it was just yesterday that I flew back from San Diego, but thanks to the magic of comics you’re reading this weeks from when I write it. I’m jealous because when you read this it’s almost football season and you’ve seen a certain action movie that hasn’t come out yet as I’m writing this.
The original Captain Boomerang returns as BRIGHTEST DAY continues. Meanwhile, Barry must prove his innocence to the Renegades, cops from the 25th century. Discover what connection they have to the Rogues and what travesties have occurred in the future.
THE FLASH #4 hits tomorrow.
The thing I love most about Wonder Woman is her roots. Raised an Amazon warrior, her very essence combines the very best of mythology and modern day heroes. You could say she bridges the gap between the heroic tales the Greeks used to tell, to the modern day feats of the heroes that roam the DC Universe. In one word she is EPIC. Best of all she just plain kicks ass!
We interrupt your week-long Superman awesomeness for a few stunning pages from THE FLASH #3. I think you’ll forgive us, right?
It may be BRIGHTEST DAY, but when a mysterious group of so-called heroes turns up, another Rogue ends up dead. Plus, the mystery deepens as The Flash witnesses another murder — his own. Wait, what?
We’ll all find out more when the issue hits – 6/30. Until then, enjoy a batch of pages, courtesy of Mr. Johns and Mr.Manapul.
Lovely covers by amazing artists. Simple enough, right?
So, here, for your end-of-day clicking are the variant covers for ZATANNA #2 by Brian Bolland, GREEN ARROW #2 by Ethan Van Sciver, JUSTICE LEAGUE: GENERATION LOST #4 by Tony Harris and THE FLASH #3 by Greg Horn.
Geoff Johns and artist Francis Manapul continue to speed up the tension – yes, pun intended – in the second issue of THE FLASH series, as Barry Allen continues to investigate the “Dastardly Death of the Rogues.” But when the case takes a dramatic turn, will even the Fastest Man Alive have any idea who the main suspect is?
THE FLASH #2 hits 5/12.
