Great Comics That Never Happened #23: SLASHPOINT
In our recurring feature, ComicsAlliance writer Chris Sims and a rotating cast of talented artists imagine a finer world to bring you a look at the Best Comics Ever that Did Not, Will Not, and occasionally Can Not Happen! This week, the incredible Jess Fink of the beautiful and NSFW Chester 5000 joins us to tell the story what definitely isn’t DC’s latest crossover!
We’ve seen alternate universes before, but never have we seen one that the fans have demanded quite so vocally as this one. Check out the full cover and the story behind it after the cut!

Because You Demanded It! After months of buildup, the Flash has been thrust into a universe that is not his own! A universe of tortured wispiness. A universe where the characters may be familiar, but the strange urges they inspire are not — and where they’ve paired off for more than just a team-up!
In our first issue, Barry Allen has to confront a world in which he and Iris West were never married — and in which he and Hal “Green Lantern” Jordan formed a relationship that was far more brave and bold than he remembers! It’s a whirlwind tour to find out where he is that guest stars Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, Tim Drake and Conner Kent, Renee Montoya and Kate Kane, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, and all set to the rocking solos of Guns ‘n’ Roses most notable guitarist!
Will Barry be able to find his way back home? Will his molecular vibration powers be used for more than just crossing dimensional barriers? And who is the mastermind behind the machinations, the mysterious OTP?! Find out in “Yaoi Zowie,” the first chapter of this summer’s epic crossover and the first DC comic to ever be published directly to LiveJournal and Tumblr!
