Heartbroken to hear the passing of WildStorm artist Oliver Nome. Oliver was one of the last artists to join the studio but his "origin story" was one of the more unique, memorable ones. Winner of a major talent contest we held during the early days of the internet, Oliver made his presence felt immediately, taking stage at a comic con panel with us in his first public appearance as the winner. Appearing poised, charismatic and playful, he surprised us with his wit and confidence.
In order to catch up to his grandfather, Bart Allen will have to race against the speed force itself. As he is bounced around through time collecting multi-dimensional speed force energy from various members of the Flash family, Bart needs to gain all of the necessary tools to reach Barry in time to deliver a message that could save the universe.

Geoff: Anyone see FRINGE last night? If you did, or if you’ve read this blog this week, you saw the RED LANTERN/RED ARROW cover. And maybe the bizarre SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL RETURNS in the style of Frank Miller’s BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS.

For real.
