Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Centering on Barry Allen—aka the Flash, “the fastest man alive”—this collection of the five-part miniseries follows Barry’s realization that his world is not as he has known it, with certain details being “off.” His long-dead mother is alive, many of his superpowered colleagues are different in subtle and not-so-subtle ways, and he himself is without his speedster abilities. As Barry unravels the mystery, he discovers there’s a limited window of time in which to set things right, or else the alternate reality will permanently supplant his own. This series was created as an “event” intended to shake up DC’s continuity, supposedly to attract new readers, resulting in the controversial “New 52” imprint-wide reboot. All of that sprang from this Johns-scripted miniseries (with solid artwork by Kubert) that starts out with much to interest both new and old readers. Unfortunately, it collapses under its own weight about halfway through and, along with resetting things to the current “New 52” status quo, results in a narrative hash, with too many plots and character points. The result is of interest mostly to see from whence the “New 52” sprang, and its events will most likely be glossed over with the next inevitable company-wide “fix.” (Nov.)

    Awesome-but the overview is wrong.

    Flashpoint is about the Flash/Barry Allen being transported to a world where everything is different. A world with no Justice League of America. A world where Atlantis, led by Emperor Aquaman, is at war with the Amazons of Themiscera, led by Wonder Woman. The two opposing armies have already sunk Western Europe under the sea and the Flash is slowly losing his memories of the old world. It's a race in time for Flash to find out what happened and change it before everything he knows is changed! A must have.

    Good comic

    The comic was very good. Wonder woman and aquaman take control of the world. The flash finds that batman is not who he thinks he is. Cyborg fights with others such as element woman and captain thunder

    Not a Flash fan

    I’ll be honest I’m not a fan of the flash. Not that theirs anything wrong with him, I just never got into it. But I have been reading a lot of Johns stuff and the first comic cover I saw of this series was Batman throwing the switch on an electric chair that the flash was sitting in. I had to check it out. I loved the book. I was worried Id get lost in the lore that I didn’t know but it wasn’t the case here. Great writing, great art, and even a great Batman story too.
