CA_FlashRecap1

Welcome back to Up To Speed, home of the the Flashest Recaps Alive. Here we’ll recap the latest episode of The Flash, dispense some Flash Facts and talk about what works, what doesn’t and where the series might be headed, as we try and keep up with the adventures of the fastest man alive, Barry Allen, more widely known as The Flash.

After the crazy bonkers thrill-ride that was last week's episode, we dive back into the time-stream with "Rogue Time," which includes the return of some Rogues, a sister in a sidecar, a gallery of guns, and Cisco's sucky sibling. Will Barry Allen be able to change the past without screwing up his present? Will Cisco finally be able to "get some"? Will Harrison Wells be able to hold his insatiable bloodlust in check?

Phil Hester Tackles a Different Ollie Queen in the ‘Flash: Season Zero’ Crossover with ‘Arrow’ [Interview/Preview]

FLS_SZERO_15_300-014_HD-feat

We've already seen Arrow and The Flash cross paths a few times on their respective TV shows; now they'll meet up again in the tie-in next week's installment of the DC Digital comic series The Flash: Season Zero, from writers Lauren Certo, Andrew Kreisberg, and Kai Wu, and artists Phil Hester, Eric Gapstur, and Kelsey Shannon.

This is not Hester's first time drawing a version of Ollie Queen, aka Arrow on the screen and Green Arrow in the DC comics universe. Hester and Ande Parks were the celebrated art team on Kevin Smith's Green Arrow run of the early 2000s. We spoke to Hester to learn what it was like to take on such a different take on such a familiar character, and DC provided us with an exclusive preview of the creative team's Arrow leaping into action.

On The Cheap: Your Best Bets For Comixology’s ‘Flash’ Sale

The Flash by Mike Wieringo

I think we can all agree that the best comics are cheap comics, which is why I always keep an eye on Comixology's sales page to see if there are any good deals to be had. This week, there's a massive sale going on featuring The Flash, which has pretty consistently been one of the best and most innovative comics at DC for the past 50 years.
But that presents a good problem to have: With so much on sale (and so many great comics out there), what are the hidden gems that you should look for while they're on sale? Fortunately for you, you have a guide that has read a lot of back issues and knows just which ones to check out!

Hard as it was to imagine Arrow spawning yet another spinoff for Brandon Routh’s Atom, The CW did fans one better to develop a major team-up series culling players from both Oliver Queen and The Flash’s world. It’s still daunting to think such a major undertaking will come to pass, but the spinoff’s three secret DC heroes may yet have been revealed.

Thumbnail: Francis Manapul’s Masterful ‘Detective Comics’ Layouts

manapul-hed

One of the most pleasant surprises of the New 52 relaunch was Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato's run on The Flash. With clever, Will Eisner-inspired titles pages and chaotic compositions that emphasized movement rather than structure, Manapul's layouts were impressive without being superfluously...flashy. Eye-popping, complex designs weren't slathered across every page; they were saved for the moments when it best served the story. So it's not too much of a surprise that his work on Detective Comics looks completely different.

Where The Flash was colorful and kinetic, the current story in Detective Comics is a dark mystery, and appropriately, Manapul takes a different approach.

We thought it unlikely that Arrow could spawn yet another CW spinoff to see The Atom joining The Flash but it turns out the network’s real plan is infinitely crazier. The CW is reportedly working on a new series to feature not only Brandon Routh’s Atom, but also Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, and craziest of all, Caity Lotz’s Black Canary!
