Pardon our dust

April 18, 2009

Sorry for the lack of updates: things are getting busy for us this time of year, as they often do. We’ll be updating as we can throughout April and May, but I have a feeling we’ll become much more active near the end of May. We’ve also got a big announcement coming up (for serious), so stay tuned!

Flash: Rebirth #1 review

April 2, 2009

Flash: Rebirth #1 sees the first story focused on Barry Allen — the Silver Age Flash — since his return in Final Crisis.  Barry had died over two decades earlier during the first Crisis, so people were eagerly awaiting his return (albeit with some trepidation from the fans of Wally West, his successor, who feared their Flash would be replaced).  Since Barry was such an iconic character and has been gone for so long, Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver face a fairly daunting task — how to update the character and make him relevant, and to justify even bringing him back in the first place.  Rebirth is our first look at how it’s going to happen.

 

There will be spoilers in this review, so you’re warned!
