Is this apparent Wally death #7 or 8. (although this time a body)
I stopped buying comics after the first two months of the new 52 (down from 25 a month) until Wally returned in Rebirth. I now buy about 20 a month again.
Wally is the best DC hero. He grew up, learned from his mentor and then surpassed him. Wally’s solo book is lauded as having some of the best comics runs of any hero, yet he is second-fiddle to a milquetoast hero whose greatest accomplishment was dying to save the world in CoIE (still a pretty good dad).
Rebirth is about Wally. Hell, DC is. He will be back. If not, then DC has lost its way again. The “Life Story of Wally West” issue of the Flash, preceding this storyline, included how Wally would become the greatest hero ever. I will believe.
BTW. The comic was an excellent hook for a murder mystery, played without overwrought emotionality or flippancy. King is pretty good.
Also, I have been waiting since 1987 for a “Blue and Gold” comic.
