FLASHPOINT #1

Written by GEOFF JOHNS
Art and cover by ANDY KUBERT
1:25 Variant cover A by ANDY KUBERT
Variant cover B by IVAN REIS and GEORGE PEREZ

Not a dream, not an imaginary story, not an elseworld. This is Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It’s a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war – but where are Earth’s Greatest Heroes to stop it? It’s a place where America’s last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of The Outsider, The Secret 7, S!H!A!Z!A!M!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar-yet-altered faces! It’s a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the time line! Welcome to FLASHPOINT!
Retailers please note: This issue will ship with three covers. Please see the Previews Order Form for more information.

    The Beat: DC Comics Month-to-Month Sales: July 2011

    DC Comics Month-to-Month Sales: July 2011
    POSTED ON Sep 02 2011 AT 2:57 pm by Marc-Oliver Frisch

    Here’s a number for you: Out of 65 DC Universe comic books published in July, 32 were by the writer/artist creative teams listed in the solicitations — less than half of the bunch.

    Most of the others were either completely drawn by guest artists or had help from one or more of them. And for a couple, even the story credit changed. Not counting the six DC Retroactive books, the video-game adaptations and the New Wave titles, none of which are involved in the day-to-day of the DC Universe, the strike rate is 22 out of 55. So, presuming that’s not a coincidence, it looks like the big DC relaunch was about 40% well-planned, at this juncture.

    See below for the details, and please consider the small print at the end of the column. Thanks to Milton Griepp and ICv2.com for the permission to use their figures. An overview of ICv2.com’s estimates can be found here.

    4 - FLASHPOINT
    05/2011: Flashpoint #1 of 5 --  86,981         [95,845]
    06/2011: Flashpoint #2 of 5 --  87,505 (+0.6%) [92,482]
    07/2011: Flashpoint #3 of 5 --  86,007 (-1.7%)

    DC’s big summer event doesn’t set the charts on fire, but its first-month numbers have been unusually solid.

    Given that the relaunch was announced at the end of May, retailers had a couple of weeks to adjust their orders for issue #3, and these figures suggest that Flashpoint may have benefited from the announcement. Issue #2 also sold another 5,000 copies in July.

    Everything You Know Will Change in a Flash!

    Not a dream, not an imaginary story, not an elseworld. This is a Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It’s a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war – but where are Earth’s Greatest Heroes to stop it?

    It’s a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can’t find the villain who altered the time line!

    Welcome to FLASHPOINT!

    On sale MAY 11 = 40 pg, FC, $3.99 US = Rated T

    The five issues of the core FLASHPOINT series are oversized, 40 page books priced at $3.99 each, while the other mini series and the one shots will be priced at $2.99.

    A lot of planning has gone into place to make sure that this series delivers on all of it’s earth shattering potential. It is a project as ambitious in scope and execution as anything I’ve been a part of in my six years at DC Comics.

    It bears repeating: Everything You Know Will Change in a Flash!
