After less than one week on the shelves, FLASHPOINT issue #2 has sold out. Congratulations to Geoff Johns, Andy Kubert, Sandra Hope, Alex Sinclair, Nick Napolitano, Kate Stewart, Rex Ogle, and Eddie Berganza. A second printing of the issue will feature the above newly recolored cover and will hit stores in July.
Like the saying goes, everything you know will change in a flash. It goes without saying that Geoff Johns is a talent to be reckoned with. For the past several years, Johns has been writing numerous FLASH titles – including the recently released THE FLASH OMNIBUS Vol. 1.
