In your wildest dreams, have you ever dreamt about a new Wally West book hitting the shelves of your Local Comic-Shop ? Of course, you did ! You must remember, way back in 2009, when Flash : Rebirth was released, DC promised us a wonderful saga for the Flash Family, where each Flash of every generations would be celebrated. Well, you must be aware that it didn't go well for the Flash characters after the conclusion of the Flashpoint and it might take a few years before our favorite characters will be allowed to share epic adventures across the Multiverse, Hypertime and the Speed Force, even if Rebirth tried to bring back everything we loved about The Flash.
To tell the truth, things have been really awful for Wally West this year. This was so bad that it doesn't deserve to be mentionned here but, right now, DC is trying to make us forgive or forget what happened. It might be impossible, but you might want to give a try at this new Wally West book.
This is not the mini serie you wanted, this is not how things should be right now, but remember that Brett Booth is passionnate artist who would do everything he can to salvage Wally West and bring back the portrayal we all love. And you should definitely take a look a the The Flash/Speed Buggy crossover if you haven't read it, it might give you some confidence over the fact that Scott Lobdell is writing this book.
I sincerely hope that Flash Forward will be a book that makes people happy and starving for more adventures. Comics should be fun, comics should brighten your day.
