TEASER OF THE DAY: DC unveils ‘Flashpoint’ art


DC Comics unveils Flashpoint art for a series that's two years in the making. (Flashpoint - DC Comics)

“Today the world changes.”

So resonates the word of DC Comics honcho Geoff Johns, as art for the years-in-the-making series was unveiled today, as “Flashpoint” debuts.

Resurrected relatives. Flipped heroes. And Barry Allen, awaking in Flashpoint and needing to enlist the services of the world’s greatest detective: the Batman.

Johns, of course, help bring new heat to the Green Lantern. Now DC ’s aim is for the Flash to sprint to centerstage in the shifting-character series, written by Johns and rendered by Andy Kubert, whose legendary dad Joe, once upon a time, inked the Flash.

Today, the DC Universe hopes Flashpoint begins to become the event of the year.
