    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volume 13 to Volume 15

    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volume 13 to Volume 15

    Apologies for the delayed release. Baby Dpalm came a bit early and so we've been on a little hiatus

    Thankfully we recorded the final episode in our Flash series earlier in the month. So without further ado, the finale of the Joshua Williamson run.

    We end this run as any good Flash run should with a finale showdown between Barry and Eobard. Throughout the 15 volumes, we got a really good reintroduction of Barry Allen that paid homage to the entire Flash legacy. We get the return and reunion of the Flash Family from the Wally years (Jay, Bart, Max and more) which has been teased all run and then finally comes back together. This run really solidifies why Rebirth really was something different for DC. Instead of running from their past they embraced it and used to to create a new legacy. This is what makes this run so much fun to read.

    Issues:



    * Volume 13 Rogues Reign

    * Volume 14 The Flash Age

    * Volume 15 Finish Line

    Joshua Williamson’s Flash Volumes Year One & Volume 12

    Joshua Williamson’s Flash Volumes Year One & Volume 12

    We know last episodes we covered Year One but we decided to revisit that volume as well as volume 12 of the Williamson run of The Flash. Year One was worth a revisit because it not only reestablishes some of the lost history of Barry Allen but also starts off a new one as well (Barry meeting not only Wally but Wallace at the same time). It also takes a villain that we didn't think twice about and make him terrifying. Who would think the Turtle would be so scary?

    Then we get a return of Hunter Zolomon and we get an update to the great Blitz storyline. Turns out the clown DID have a gun. And through that all, Snart and the original rogues start putting their final plan in place. 



    Issues:



    * The Flash Year One

    * Volume 12: Death and the Speed Force

    Joshua Williamson’s Flash Volumes 10, 11 & Year One

    Joshua Williamson’s Flash Volumes 10, 11 & Year One

    We delayed the release of this episode until Kriss was out of town. We also timed it right around the time the Flash review dropped. Enjoy.



    Post Flash War, Barry turns back into a student and has to go through a bit of a re-education phase. This fits right in with the Joshua Williamson theme of taking Barry Allen on a journey we really haven't seen him in before. A lot of this feels familiar to those of us who grew up with Wally West as our Flash because we watched him go through the same journey. With Barry, its not only about him really studying the speed force but also learning that a Flash doesn't run alone. It's also really interesting to read the journey that Barry is on while also reading the journey that Batman is on in the King books. You'd like Bruce would be the depressed sounding pessimist but it's actually Barry.



    Issues:



    * Volume 10: Force Quest

    * Volume 11: The Greatest Trick of All

    * Year One

    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volumes 7 - 9: Wally West, Fastest Man Alive

    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volumes 7 - 9: Wally West, Fastest Man Alive

    We're back with more of Joshua Williamson's Flash run. This time we're talking volumes 7 to 9 (issues 39 to 57). Williamson's run really feels like a great jumping on point for the Flash. Since it's during Rebirth, it gives us a great reintroduction of not only Barry Allen and Eobard Thawne but also Wally West. This part of the run felt like Williamson telling all of us that grew up with Wally as our Flash that his years as the Flash mattered. And while this series is centered on Barry, it felt good to get acknowledgement of Wally's years (decades) as the Flash.

    Issues:



    * The Flash Volume 7: Perfect Storm

    * The Flash Volume 8: Flash War

    * The Flash Volume 9: Reckoning of the Forces

    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volumes 4 to 6

    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volumes 4 to 6

    We promised 2 episodes in March and we're squeezing it right in there at the 11th hour. But we're back for the next set of issues from the Joshua Williamson Flash run. We first stop over at Batman and pick up with The Button which takes us closer to understanding the forces behind all the lost time and history in the DC Universe. But it also reminds us that Eobard Thawne is the epitome of evil. The way he beats Bruce's ass in the Batcave is a good reminder that speed beats prep time. It's not just the Button though. After being largely absent in the first three volumes, Thawne features heavily in the next set of volumes for The Flash. And ends up dying...twice. If the first three volumes were a reintroduction of Barry Allen, these next set of volumes are a reminder of why Eobard Thawne is one of the scariest and evil villains in DC. Death doesn't stop him. And when we get the reveal of why he's become a mortal enemy of Barry Allen and it's the most petty, insignificant thing; It's just a good reminder of why this type of person is such a problem. 

    Issues:



    * Batman/The Flash: The Button

    * The Flash Volume 4: Running Scared

    * The Flash Volume 5: Negative

    * The Flash Volume 6: Cold Day in Hell

    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volumes 1 - 3

    Joshua Williamson's Flash Volumes 1 - 3

    We finally get back into recording Character Corners and it still takes me 2 weeks to release the episode. Smh. Sorry for the delay folks but we're finally hitting the Joshua Williamson run of The Flash. We consider this the reintroduction of Barry Allen. Sure in 2009 Geoff Johns did a "rebirth" of Barry Allen, having him finally return to the mantle after being dead for so long. But this run during DC's rebirth really gets Barry back to the basics. Anyone that's read this run knows it comes back down to Barry vs Thawne but the way this run starts off, it removes some of the staples like Thawne and the Rogues and focuses first on undoing some of the mistakes from New 52. We start with Wally coming back then there are hints of Jay as well. And of course the most important thing: how naive Barry is and how he runs into situations without seeing the big picture.

    We start with the first three volumes and when we come back we'll hit The Button (the crossover with Batman and setup for Doomsday Clock).

    Issues:



    * The Flash Volume 1: Lightning Strikes Twice

    * The Flash Volume 2: Speed of Darkness

    * The Flash Volume 3: Rogues Reloaded

Longing, Rusted, Furnace

Love the pod, been spreading the gospel to people in my discord groups who wanna know more about different characters and comics. Y’all have put me up on game about so many dope characters but the Nightwing one has been long awaited and I am ready! N***a I hopped out my seat and cheered when it was announced. I don’t have any requests but I was wondering if there are any villains coming down the pipeline soon? Keep up the great work, and when the mid starts selling again I’m going premium!
