It’s not just me; this is an odd thing to have a blog post about, right? From the official DCU blog:
It goes without saying that Geoff Johns is a talent to be reckoned with. For the past several years, Johns has been writing numerous FLASH titles – including the recently released THE FLASH OMNIBUS Vol. 1.
As he did with Hal Jordan and GREEN LANTERN, Johns has completely reinvigorated the character of Barry Allen and THE FLASH. Working with such incredible artists including Scott Kolins, Ethan Van Sciver, Angel Unzueta, Andy Kubert and rising stars like Francis Manipul, Johns has solidified The Flash’s place in the DC Universe. In fact, he’s placed Barry Allen front and center of this summer’s bestselling event, FLASHPOINT.
But like issue #12 was the final issue of THE FLASH by Johns, the final issue of FLASHPOINT will conclude Johns’ run on FLASH titles for the foreseeable future.
The point of this post is to… formalize that Johns won’t be writing whatever new Flash series that launches post-Flashpoint? To stealth-confirm that there will be a new Flash series post-Flashpoint? To promote the just-released Flash Omnibus in a really unexpected way? If it’s just meant as a “Geoff has written his last issue of Flash, didn’t he do well” post, shouldn’t it have come out a couple of weeks ago, when his last issue of Flash was actually released?
The post finishes by teasing the “Don’t talk about what comes after Flashpoint” slogan that’s been bandied around everywhere recently – One that’s entirely facetious, consdering everyone involved is probably loving that everyone is talking about what comes after Flashpoint, even if no-one seems to know…
