It's been a long time since Wally West was part of the solicitations every month. But, right now, the readers won't have only one title solicited ... But two. Which is a huge step in the right direction. We have never been so close to have an ongoing serie ... Yes, one can only hope, isn't it ?
But let's focus on the present, or what's to come in october. In a few month, we will discover Wally's new role in the DCU with Flash Forward #2 : The protector of the Multiverse and the new archnemesis of the Dark Multiverse, introduced by Scott Snyder in Metal. It could lead Wally to cross the path of the Batman of Laugh and make him central again in the Crisis to come. After all, DC promised a "big event" for Wally during the SDCC 2019 ...
Last but not least, 2020 will mark the beginning of the celebrations. We will soon reach the 80th anniversary of The Flash legacy and, while anthology books might not be the most exciting things to read, we will have the chance to find new materials from Mark Waid and Francis Manapul, and it's always nice to read what these two Flash aficionados have to say about such a beloved character.
