DC Comics Announces 14 Tie-In Titles in ‘Flashpoint’ Crossover
DC Comics announced the titles of 14 new tie-in comic books today related to their upcoming Flashpoint event in May, which will be spearheaded by a five-issue miniseries written by DC writer and Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, with art by Andy Kubert. No creative teams were announced for the tie-ins. While the content of Flashpoint remains largely vague, the images and copy released so far indicate that it will relate to the hero Flash, and will likely change history or reality in some fashion, as large DC Comics events are wont to do.The announcement follows a series of Flashpoint teaser images that included the phrases “the spaceship never crashed,” “their marriage was arranged to prevent war,” “they experimented on him for years,” “he spends his days running Wayne Casinos” and “where is his ring?” A preview issue relating to Flashpoint will be released on May 7th for Free Comic Book Day, titled Green Lantern/Flashpoint FCBD 2011 Special Edition.
