DC unveils its next big event today with Flashpoint Friday.
FLASHPOINT spans the DC Universe from the dark streets of Gotham to the ruins of Big Ben. It’s an international tale of action and intrigue that impacts an entire universe.
Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert and Sandra Hope are creating an epic five issue series, one with a scope so big and ambitious that there will be fifteen mini series expanding on the events, along with several important one shots.
This afternoon we’ll be announcing fourteen mini series’ titles - and leaving one a mystery for now, along with the one-shots.
This isn’t a parallel Earth.
This isn’t a mirror world.
This is home
Ok, so, why should I get excited about this you may ask. Well, let me tell you why. Because oftentimes in comics, alternate-earth stories produce great storytelling moments and this series seems to be full of them. Check it out.
