Someone needs to kill The Flash
The title comes from the fact that my brother tells me the last DC reboot was rooted a Flash story as well. I guess all publishers do that because I seem to recall that most of the major Marvel resets are caused by the X-Men. I'm not the target person for Flashpoint. I don't read The Flash. I don't know the DC Universe well enough to know who all the alternate timeline people are. Oh, and I hate that this will cause the reboot. But I figured that since I've gotten hooked into the DCU by Batman, I may as well partake in Flashpoint. I'm not, by any means, going to get all the many Flashpoint universe books, but I'll get the main ones and the Batman ones.
So, enough background, what's up with this book? Well, it's the first of a series, a series that will remake the DCU, so it's a bit slow. But it is well written and it does leave me wanting to read the next issue. I also enjoyed finding out who's doing the opening narration. Overall, it's a good intro to this universe and I think it's worth buying if you're into the DCU and want to know what's going on rather than being caught by surprise in Sept.
