DC's summer super-event, Flashpoint has both the fun of an alternate reality tale and the reward of a continuity storyline. Written by Geoff "I am DC" Johns, with stunning artwork by Andy Kubert, the first issue is largely spent setting up this previously unseen ‘world’. And what a world they have crafted! Though I'm more a fan of Green Lantern than of The Flash, this event looks to be far more exciting... and dare I pun ‘fast paced’, than Blackest Night or Brightest Day.
Style over substance. That is the typical first reaction when someone mentions the Power Girl title. Or, thoughts of cheesecake art that hangs on skeleton thin plotlines. This is not the case though.
DC Comics’ dynamic cover campaign strikes again! I picked up this month's issue of The Flash based entirely on the phenomenal cover by local artist Francis Manapul. I’m not entirely sure why I wasn’t expecting to enjoy the issue, but it is a great read. This reallyshouldn’t have come as a surprise to me, given the creative team involved.
