Back in January, I helped share the news about the comic book milestone issue #750 for DC Comics “The Flash”. For this special edition one-shot, there would be a series of “Decades” variants much like the ones we saw for “Wonder Woman” #750. My variant covers “reveal” post for “The Flash” #750 can be examined HERE. The standard edition of this special edition is presented for you below and then I decided to have a little fun.
Since it was New Comic Book Day and since we were in our local comic book shop (Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn), I decided to have some fun and capture a quick video of all the individual issues on the racks and say a little bit about the whole batch. It makes for some good YouTube Channel content and we’d love to have you as subscribers on this medium so be sure to click HERE, choose “subscribe” and click the bell to be alerted to any newness.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I noted that was likely to do when this hit the stands, I picked up a single copy of the issue that you see in this post because I don’t have the space for “8” additional issues of a single title anymore. Let me add to the fact that there is also going to be a special edition “Green Lantern” and “Joker” issue coming and those will also run between 8-10 dollars apiece. I miss the days when this hobby wasn’t as expensive as its become. So what do you readers think about this announcement? Will you be purchasing this special edition of “The Flash” or its multiple variant covers? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
The Press Release:
On March 4th, the landmark The Flash #750 hits comic book stores and participating digital retailers, spotlighting the Scarlet Speedster and including incredible stories from Flash’s past, present and future. This oversized tribute to one of pop culture’s speediest heroes is guaranteed to become a collectors’ item when it hits stores!
Hey there my fellow geeks, this is just a quick reminder that tonight’s episode of “The Flash” will pit him against Arrow on The CW. It will continue with tomorrow’s episode of “Arrow” so set your DVR’s for both if you are enjoying these shows.
I recently finished the second season of The CW Network’s show “Arrow”, the one based on the DC Comics character “Green Arrow” and during that run we met Barry Allen. Allen was a forensic scientist for the Central City Police Department and at the close of his appearances was the victim of a lab accident that will lead him to becoming The Flash. Comic book fans everywhere know exactly what I am talking about but this “Arrow” cameo was the not so subtle lead into his own series as “The Flash” appears in his own show tonight. Check out the poster below and then we can review the premise and cast.
As its been previously reported, DC Comics’ own “The Flash” who in real life goes by the name Barry Allen is getting his own solo series after being introduced on the action packed CW Network series “Arrow”. The show stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash and I will get more into the cast when the show debuts on its announcement post.
The trailer was released earlier today and it looks pretty good even though they took some obvious liberties with the origin and his overall reason for choosing to become a hero. I am sure that we shall see lots of villains from his famous Rogues Gallery and as any reader of the comic book will attest, The Flash had some really wild adversaries.
What do you think of the clip? Did you like what you saw? Chime in on this post and lets discuss.
