Default THE FLASH and the FUTURE!

First off, Flash fans read BLACKEST NIGHT #5 this week.

Also, I just got a copy of BLACKEST NIGHT: THE FLASH #1. Scott Kolins returns from last year's ROGUES' REVENGE! Of course, whenever Scott is illustrating it's hard for the Rogues not to steal the spotlight, but there's one old friend in particular that I think gives Barry a shiver down his spine in #1. I'll come back to talk about #2 after BLACKEST NIGHT #5 is out.

Also, the ending might be my favorite line Captain Cold has ever uttered.

So March we see THE FLASH SECRET FILES 2010 #1 and then in April, in the wake of BLACKEST NIGHT, you will see not one, but two new Flash titles. There have been a few minor top secret alterations that will be revealed soon, I think, about the books.

The first arc of THE FLASH is called THE DASTARDLY DEATH OF THE ROGUES and should be self-explanatory...kind of. Other arcs will include MURDER IN GORILLA CITY, THE RETURN OF ### ######## and a brand new Rogue with a power unlike anyone in comics, but perfect for the Flash.

And, of course, how can I NOT mention the delays of THE FLASH: REBIRTH. It's as frustrating for me as anyone (especially because Blackest Night: The Flash #1 is shipping before #6...sigh...) but after much debate, we didn't want to hand the series over to another artist or spilt up the book. He's working hard on #6 now so when he pops up on facebook tell him to get back to work!!! lol

I do thank all of you who are reading REBIRTH and just be assured everyone is already working on the future of the Flash universe at triple-speed which is why we decided not to hold back BLACKEST NIGHT: THE FLASH (despite some spoilers!).

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

Geoff

NOTHING can kill Grodd.

Except maybe Titano.

Marvel's doing the zombies vs apes thing right now.

I would easily pay 3.99 to see Black Lantern Titano. (see also: Black Lantern Chemo)

He can slow the flash down in his goo trail................

I'm still waiting to see if we find out that the Turtle is the engine for the Slow Force.

Can you tell us anything about the title of some of Wally's arcs? And will Hunter Zolomon be making a return?

RETCON.

The Turtle is an agent of the SNAIL.

As is the Hedgehog. His speed spikes are nasty little things.

I still think the Ringmaster will be revealed as the big bad of Rebirth AND Blackest Night when all is said and done. Mark my words.
