Before I even get started, I want you to know that we’re going THERE with tonight’s column. So if you haven’t watched this week’s Flash yet, get out of here until you do. Trust me, MAJOR SPOILER AHEAD.
Part two of the four-part Rebirth event, “The Button,” dropped this week in THE FLASH #21 and, unsurprisingly considering the titular hero, it hit the ground running...but maybe not where you’d expect.
It’s been a year since Wally West escaped the Speed Force, and the DC Universe is still reeling from the after-effects. Luckily, both Batman and The Flash are on the case! In an epic team-up between the World’s Greatest Detectives comes “The Button,” and we have writers Tom King (BATMAN) and Joshua Williamson (THE FLASH) on hand to talk about the process.
One of my past editorials for the #DCTV Couch Club was called “My Name is Barry Allen and I’m Addicted to Changing the Timeline.” It’s a decent joke that fans of The Flash will understand immediately, particularly in the wake of Flashpoint, but it would have stood on its own two legs inside a red leather costume long before that.
In this week’s issue of THE FLASH #20, the bodies of Godspeed’s victims are disappearing. Iris West, with the help of Barry Allen, investigates the reason behind these disappearances.
Iris ends up at the Speed Force Training Center where she runs into Black Hole scientists. As she goes deeper, Iris discovers more about the missing bodies. But what else does she uncover? Find out more in this week’s issue of THE FLASH #20 from writer Joshua Williamson and artists Neil Googe, Ivan lascencia, and Steve Wands.
