So, you're probably like "Whaaaaaat? Wait, Liz is reviewing Flashpoint? Liz, that has nothing nice to say about core Marvel and DC titles? Why do you guys keep letting her review these books?!"
Calm your worried mind. I'm going to read the five issue, main series of Flashpoint. Guess what?! I thought issue #1 was pretty dope. Somebody is seriously f*%$ing around with Barry Allen! One second, everything is normal. He's got Iris, love of his life. He's got super powers, he's the Flash, duh. And then in the next moment, after waking from a little cat nap everything is BONKERS! Nothing makes sense! His mom comes to meet him for birthday dinner, whaaaat?! His beautiful Iris is clearly involved with someone else. Wonder Woman and Aquaman are the bad guys?! Batman is super mean! What the hell? Little by little, the pieces start to come together and bring some sense to what's going on. But...it can't all be peaches and cream. I'm not terribly fond of the art. It reminds me of Michael Turner, no disrespect. Yep, I liked it and am actually looking forward to issue #2. Stay tuned!
4 out of 5 whacked out realities.
