Big things are coming for The Flash ! Indeed, that's what we were told during the SDCC but we had no official annoucement about anything regarding Wally West's future after Flash Forward's end and while there are good reasons to be afraid about DC's plans, 2020 might be a good year for every Flash aficionados.
We already know the publisher is going to celebrate the 80 years of Flash stories, whether it be in the last anthology, where you can read Waid and Manapul's essays, or in the main ongoing, written by Joshua Williamson, you'll have plenty of stories to discover or rediscover fantastic tales about the speedsters. This week, thanks to ComicBook.com and DC Comics, we learn that The Flash series will hit its 750th issue in February, and just like Action Comics #1000 and Detective Comics #1000, you'll be able to buy a bunch of variant covers or add another masterpiece from Geoff Johns and Marv Wolfman to your collection.
What's even more interesting is the long awaited arrival of Paradox, who has been teased since the end of Flash War. It's time for Barry and Wally to team up one more time and save the day !
Rejoice, dear Flash fans, there might be hope after all !
