THE FLASH: REBIRTH Miniseries To Start In January

by Jeff

DC Comics Announced a Flash miniseries that will start in January titled THE FLASH: REBIRTH. It will feature Barry Allen, though it sounds like other Flashes will appear as well.

Announced today at Comic-Con, the superstar writer told CBR News that he and Van Sciver have a simple goal for the five-issue miniseries “The Flash: Rebirth,” scheduled to start in January.

“We are trying to do a really fresh start, a re-imagining of the world of super-speedsters and building it into a pillar of the DC Universe like Green Lantern has become. Our goal is nothing less than having the Flash be one of the most popular characters in the DC Universe,” explained Johns, who wrote 62 critically acclaimed issues (#164-225) of “The Flash” from 2000 to 2005 featuring Wally West as the fastest man alive.

“The Flash: Rebirth” features Barry Allen, the Silver Age speedster, created in 1956 by writers Gardner Fox and Bob Kanigher and artist Carmine Infantino for “Showcase” #4. He ultimately met his demise 23 years ago in “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” only to return to DCU proper, earlier this month, in the pages of “Final Crisis” #2.
