|Cover to Flashpoint #4 (shipping on August 3rd).|
DC, seemingly saying that Flashpoint is a game-changer for the DCU, is planning to solicit a single book for August 31st: Flashpoint #5. Being the final issue of the publisher's big event, you might expect that this is the issue that Flash saves the day and puts everything back to normal.
Apparently that is not the case. The official solicit reads as follows:
"Because of its impact on the DC Universe, Flashpoint #5 is the only title that DC Comics is currently soliciting to arrive in stores on August 31."
Wow. That is a lot to live up to, but it pretty exciting to see DC taking such bold steps to refresh their titles. I think this move might also solidify the importance of the supporting Flashpoint titles now that it seems apparent that there is going to be carryover into the current DC continuity.
This also solidifies Reverse Flash as a major villain in the DCU, considering he is the single villain responsible for the resulting Flashpoint continuity shift. I think I just got a little more excited for DC's big event.
More to come!
