I trust Geoff. Whatever he has planned, I'm in.

He's also SO cute in person.

I'm not even going to comment on Barry coming back. :roll:

I typically like EVS's art, but that's not a very good rendering of any Flash, imo. The projected energy logo thingie and unique energy signatures were excellent additions for the Green Lantern, but why do the chest logo thingie for the Flash? I understand Wally's crackling energy when he was with the Speed Force, but this makes The Flash look like a Tesla machine.

Plus, the composition is so... static. Yeah, he's pulling on his boots, but does all the energy mean he's charging up to run?

And the facial expression--why so serious? That's probably my main gripe about most of EVS's work: the characters always look pissed off or at least grim. Can't he portray someone happy just once?

While I don't think they should bring Barry Allen back because his death was so intense, at least they're doing this with a character who's been dead 23 years as opposed to a character who's been dead for two months.

As I said.. I just don't like the setup of that book.

It's like a Batman fan having to read Justice League to get his Batman fix, if the Batman in the Batman ongoing was replaced by Jason Todd. It sucks.

As long as Wally doesn't get the shaft I'm ok with it. Marvel brought back Bucky and he's one of my characters.

F'N hate it.

I can't put it into words.

Wally will no doubt be given the Kyle treatment now.

Can we expect Martian Manhunter: Rebirth in 2011?


I really don't see the point in this at all. Wally is a great Flash and has been going strong for 22 years which is only 8 years less than Barry. Replacing him sucks.

I can understand bringing Hal back, because Hal was only dead for a relatively short time, and a messed up character for only somewhat longer..

But like you said.. Barry's been gone for a long time. There are fans who don't even know him as anything but a name and a character that appears every now and then, then disappears again.

It's just pointless nostalgic fanwankery. As much as I like Johns sometimes, he can be TOO tied to the past.

I might have to stop being lazy and become a writer for DC so I can kill Hal Jordan and Barry Allen again.

True. But let's be honest..

Bucky as he is now.. the Winter Soldier/New Cap Bucky.. might as well be a brand new character with all the changes.

He is basically what Wally was. A legacy.
