Everything this week ranked

  1. Flash #50 - Big in scale with lots of heart.
  2. Hawkman #2 - Mysterious with each question asking more questions
  3. Detective Comics #984 - The teams development is fun and jefferson Pierce learned ALOT
  4. Superman #1 - Superman feels tragic and heartbreaking.
  5. Titans #23 - Misses the mark due to its confusing focus. The ideas in the comic haven’t been reflected in a single other series so its off putting.

Flash 50 is next on my list… I seem to recall it’s super-sized, so I’ll need some time tomorrow to get that in!

It’s like 8 pages longer. Not that big of a deal.

Flash 50. Very satisfying end of this particular storyline. Even if they did lose horribly, can no longer travel in time and two of their worst villains are now on the loose… other than that, great story lol.

They haven’t really explain much about all these different forces and you know the slow for us and all that you have obviously Justice Leagues in a dig in real well on all that.

  1. You better believe I was glad to see him pulse come back one of the saddest things in the flash point event was Impulse being Lost in Time at the end.

  2. For Wally 2 is, it’s kind of nice to see him developing his own personality, warts, anger issues and all.

  3. Concerning Wally 1, the story makes it obvious he is now the fastest Flash; however, he may not have the most endurance. So Barry can still run longer than Wally but not as fast, kind of like The Tortoise and the Hare story I suppose.

Don-El I like that idea for 3 about endurance. I may be a good sprinter but in a long race I might not be as good.
