    Flash Fact: Flashpoint has begun

    The Good

    This is an interesting idea to put on this large of a scale, and I really want to see where they will take this. We got to see Barry's mom, which is something that has been a conflict in the recent Flash issues. And the differences between our DCU that we know and this one that Barry has found himself in are very interesting and I am excited to see them explored. I like seeing these new twists on classic characters, and the new characters and dynamics. Also Kubert's art on this is spectacular.

    The Bad

    For supposedly being this huge shocking issue, I had predicted much of what was going to happen. Even what was supposed to be the big ending "surprise" (I won't spoil if for those of you who haven't read it) had been thought of. Despite liking to see these new twists I do not want any of them to stay, (except maybe the part about his mom...) so I hope things go back to normal after this is all said and done with (except maybe some good retcons). Overall this didn't really feel like a good kick off to a big event.

    The Verdict

    Pick it up? Despite the negatives that I have said about it there is no question, you definitely need to pick this up and see where this new event is going!

      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...

      Flashpoint is finally here 0

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