If The Flash Is Going To Be Superhero CSI, How About Superhero CSI: Miami?
Barry Allen is back from the dead and making a splash this March with “Flash: Secret Files and Origins” this March. After that he’ll be starring in a new ongoing series by Geoff Johns. But since he’s been away so long, what can readers expect from the new title?
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Johns describes the new Flash series as “Superhero ‘CSI.’”
“The first arc is entitled “The Dastardly Death of the Rogues” and it’s a murder mystery, Flash-style. Which means it’s anything but what it first looks like. He’s my favorite character and it’s great to be back with him.”
That’s all well and good. I’m a big Johns fan and Francis Manapul’s artwork as revealed by DC’s The Source blog today looks pretty stellar on the Scarlet Speedster. But you know what would have been even better? If Johns had said the new title was “Superhero ‘CSI: Miami.’”
You know you feel the same way, deep down.
