The Exact Moment of Flushpoint

"The Exact Moment of Flushpoint" from Flashpoint #5 (DC, 2012) by Geoff Johns, Andy Kubert, Sandra Hope and Jesse Delperdang
Oh Flushpoint, what can I say about you that I haven't already, somewhere on these internets? You know, I like alternate universes as much as the next guy. Big fan of What If? etc. The problem with Flashpoint is that it was the wrong way to end one universe and launch another. Unlike the first Crisis, the granddaddy of reboots, you just couldn't say goodbye to anyone, because their last story wasn't theirs at all, but an alternate world apparently designed to be so dark, the New52 would seem light by comparison, despite being much darker than the previous DCU. That's all I'm gonna say, lest I go off on a rant.

  1. While some of the books have been pretty good, I have to admit that I am SO ready for this whole little experiment in fan fiction to be over.

  2. From your typewriter to God's eyes, but I have a feeling it'll never be undone.

  3. Boy, those new costumes, and having that Wildstorm guy in there, just look really dumb. Also, the Flash run-through is totally lifted from the Perez COIE poster.
