    The red-hot, sold-out five-issue miniseries from Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert is back in a new hardcover!

    This is Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It's a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war – but where are Earth's Greatest Heroes to stop it?

    It's a place where America's last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of The Outsider, The Secret 7, S!H!A!Z!A!M!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar-yet-altered faces! It's a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can't find the villain who altered the time line!

    Back Blurb

    BARRY ALLEN IS A HERO. He protects the innocent and battles evil as The Flash --- the world's fastest man.

    But this is not the world he knew. This is a world where Wonder Woman and Aquaman have plunged millions into the darkness of war...where no human has ever wielded the Green Lantern's light...where Batman has as much on his hands as his enemies do...where no one has ever heard of Superman...

    ....where the Fastest Man Alive is just another man.

    Powerless and alone, Barry Allen remembers reality as it once was. Now he must convince its strange, dangerous heroes --- warped versions of the men and women he once fought alongside --- to rally to his cause and set the world to rights. It will take time, but time is the one thing he doesn't have. Because whether he succeeds or fails...


    The superstar creative team of Geoff Johns (BLACKES NIGHT) and Andy Kubert (BATMAN) proudly present FLASHPOINT --- an unforgettable event that takes the DC Universe past the point of no return!

    What would happen if the Flash's mother never died? If Batman's parents never died, but instead it was Batman who died in that fateful night? If Superman's ship crash-landed in Metropolis not Smallville? Well, Flashpoint answers those questions in a unique way and gives readers new and interesting takes on iconic characters. Flashpoint is by far the best Flash story I've read and that's thanks in large part to its a compelling story, the cast of character, and artwork.StoryIn Flashpoint the Flas...
