Our Flash series wraps up with “Rebirth” by Geoff Johns, a controversial book about the return of Barry Allen after his sudden return to the living in “Final Crisis.” We talk about the decision to boot Wally West in favor of a character who hasn’t been in the DCU for a couple decades. Plus, we delve into the character of Barry Allen, Hourman’s cojones, and how Professor Zoom liked to invent new modes of time travel to push people down stairs.

The Rogues invade our Flash series with “Rogue War” by Geoff Johns. In this trade, we get a couple great vignettes of the rogues, delve into the characters that define their social club, and take an horrific ride through the time stream with Professor Zoom & the Reverse Flash. We talk about the convoluted future family tree, character development, and doing crack cocaine in the bathroom. Wait, what?

Our first speedster story, “Terminal Velocity” by Mark Waid kicks off the new Flash series. As Kobra sets a plan into motion to use Keystone City to power his minions across the globe, Wally West comes home from a vision of the future — a vision of his own death. We talk about all the silly, stupid secrets and the great burdens and joys of carrying the mantle. Plus, Impulse is a strong character to love or to hate, but he’s hard to ignore.
