Wow, DC must be desperate to get an audience for the Flash as it stands now

I don't think I've seen this kind of promotion in publishing schedules that often:
THE FLASH: THE FASTEST MAN ALIVE #14
Written by Marc Guggenheim
Art by Tony S. Daniel & Art Thibert
Cover by Joshua Middleton
DC Comics announces the second month of a special FLASH promotion as the Fastest Man Alive’s world changes forever! Retailers: please check your the Previews order form for a special incentive designed to help you meet the demand for this story. Fans: remind your retailer early and often to order you a copy!
On sale July 18 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US
Something tells me that, with the way sales have plunged for the Scarlet Speedster's title sometime after the forced replacement of Wally West with Bart Allen, they are desperate to try and get people to come back. Sorry, but, only if they're willing to be honest and say clearly that they'll bring back Wally and Linda West, little the worse for wear, will I be willing to consider. This news clip doesn't say anything beyond what we see, other than the superficial "changes forever" cliche, and so I see little reason to be tempted to fall for this rather absurd-looking type of advertising.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
