    Flashpoint is finally here


    I love this cover because we finally see that Flashpoint is here and that makes me excited.


    Barry Allen is in a parallel world and every thing he once known is not true. He is not married to Isis, his mother is still, and most importantly he is not the Flash.

    Best Part

    I did not know what this story arc was going to bring us and the Road to Flashpoint only gave us hints. So, when I finally picked up this issue I did not know what to expect. The last issue of Road to Flashpoint there is a flash of lighting and they leave us on a cliffhanger. So, now seeing in this issue that Barry is in another world I was pretty surprised and I was glad of that. A lot of things surprised me in this issue. Which is good because that means it is fresh. Just seeing Barry’s whole world upside down just makes a good story. The question of “How is he going to fix everything?” is very vital. Something that was also exciting to see was to see our other heroes be something they are not. Batman never kills and I read that today in a comic , Batman Arkham City #1, that was not even connected to Flashpoint. So, it is a known fact. Then the first thing we see is Batman killing someone that was surprising. But the most surprising for this issue was Batman in this world is not Bruce but his father. That just made my jaw hot the floor.

    Worst Part

    When the heroes of this Parallel World came together. It was kind of boring because I did not know who half of them were. So, I could of done without that part.


    Even though we did not receive the art that has been in the Road to Flashpoint issues I still liked this art. But I wish we had the art from the Flash series.

    Pick it up or not

    Pick it up!!

      A whole new world. 0

      Flashpoint #1/5 So when I first read this I felt utterly confused and just thrown into this whole new story arc. But when I re-read this I realized this is how Barry is feeling as well and so that changed my whole opinion of this entire issue. Okay so Flashpoint is here and a lot is going on in this issue. A lot has changed since last issue of The Flash which was released the same day as this issue. Atlanteans are going to war with Themyscerians for the world. Batman has become a much more vicio...

      Barry Allen, Not The Quickest Guy 0

      It's finally here. Like Age of X, Flashpoint starts off by throwing us into the deep end of a reality unlike the one we know, where familiar faces aren't so familiar and with it unclear why this world is the way it is.I should say now that I'm a sucker for alternate reality stories, even sometimes when they are not done so well. Flashpoint is done fairly well, though. It is made clear in this issue that Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert have put in the effort to make the Flashpoint world a deep and ri...
