“The Flash’s” new creative team will see Si Spurrier (“Suicide Squad: Blaze”) be joined by Mike Deodato Jr. (who also drew the first issue’s cover) as DC’s synopsis for “The Flash” #1 teases a “cosmic horror” ahead for Wally West, as something beyond the Speed Force will come calling.
As explained in the synopsis, “Wally West has never been quicker, more fulfilled, more heroic. His loving family is around him. And yet something is off. Very off. His evolving understanding of his powers has opened Wally to new avenues of sci-fi adventure, and attuned his senses to strange new ideas. Something whispers from the dark vibrations beyond the Speed Force, and as Wally experiments with creative new approaches to his powers he encounters new realms, mysterious allies and mind-shattering terrors. Starting with a prelude in the soon-to-be-legendary The Flash #800, the chronicles of the Fastest Man Alive take an action-packed turn towards cosmic horror.”
“Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow” writer Tom King and Daniel Sampere (who drew the cover above) will be the new creative team for Wonder Woman, which will see Amazonians banned from the United States and Diana trying to navigate a new world while uncovering a mysterious murder.
“After a mysterious Amazonian is accused of mass murder, the U.S. Congress passes The Amazon Safety Act, barring all Amazons from American soil,” the synopsis reads. “To carry out its new law, the government sets up the Amazon Extradition Entity (AXE) task force to remove those who don’t comply by any means necessary. In her search for the truth behind the killing, Wonder Woman now finds herself an outlaw in the world she once swore to protect.”
The new “Dawn of DC” titles are coming this summer from DC Comics.
