The red-hot, sold-out five-issue miniseries from Geoff Johns and Andy Kubert is back in a new hardcover!

This is Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It's a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war – but where are Earth's Greatest Heroes to stop it?

It's a place where America's last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of The Outsider, The Secret 7, S!H!A!Z!A!M!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar-yet-altered faces! It's a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can't find the villain who altered the time line!

Back Blurb

BARRY ALLEN IS A HERO. He protects the innocent and battles evil as The Flash --- the world's fastest man.

But this is not the world he knew. This is a world where Wonder Woman and Aquaman have plunged millions into the darkness of war...where no human has ever wielded the Green Lantern's light...where Batman has as much on his hands as his enemies do...where no one has ever heard of Superman...

....where the Fastest Man Alive is just another man.

Powerless and alone, Barry Allen remembers reality as it once was. Now he must convince its strange, dangerous heroes --- warped versions of the men and women he once fought alongside --- to rally to his cause and set the world to rights. It will take time, but time is the one thing he doesn't have. Because whether he succeeds or fails...

THE WORLD WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

The superstar creative team of Geoff Johns (BLACKES NIGHT) and Andy Kubert (BATMAN) proudly present FLASHPOINT --- an unforgettable event that takes the DC Universe past the point of no return!

Simply, the story was truly amazing. The arc was complex, unimaginably surprising and well-written. I believe this is the first time that I saw DC, Vertigo and Wildstorm characters who seem to play an important role at the same time. It also has some pretty good artwork as well. I may only have a few comics, but I know that from what I have read is remarkable. Though features some scenes with gore and such, it still remains, as one of the greatest stories ever written.Final Score:I give this 4.5...
