  1. Did you have a favorite issue this week?

This was a good week. If I had to pick I think I’d go with the first Flash issue. Brightest Day was good, but Flash just hit me in all the right places. Plus the Flashpoint teaser at the end got me excited.

  1. Was anything surprising to see?

Deadman also failing to resurrect Don was something, but I think I’m more surprised that he’s even able to wield the white power at all. It’s also weird that the white light seems to not want him to resurrect people, which begs the question of, what even is the purpose of white light?

  1. Do you think these first two Flash issues were good starters for the new series?

Really enjoyed them. From the future Rogues to Barry being a culprit for murder, it’s all fantastic. I think they did a great job setting up the city as this fast-paced scene where no one has the time to slow down. Perfect setting for the Flash.
