DC cancels Flash, and keeps making a joke of themselves

As part of their latest foisting of a crossover (Flashpoint), they're ending the current volume with issues 12-13.

On the one hand, it's an open signal that forcing Wally West out for the sake of Barry Allen didn't work in the long term (sales dropped to the 50,000s if anywhere, and they led to additional loss of interest with the delays in publication of a few issues). On the other hand, it all stinks of something not unlike Age of Apocalypse, where the titles for X-Men series were altered as part of the alternate timeline story.

And on top of all that, Bob Harras, as the new EIC (and he was also Marvel's EIC at the time Age of Apocalypse was published), really is turning out to be bad karma.

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.
