A News Flash about the Flash, specifically Barry Allen. Reporting live from New York City Comic Con, Bleeding Cool breaks that Joshua Williamson will be writing Flash Year One in 2019. Not many details were released other than the writer will be tackling the origin of Barry Allen’s Flash. The story would focus on capturing how he became a hero. Williamson shares, “Barry Allen’s sense of hope and optimism is such an important thing.”
We don’t know if it will be a standalone book or will be taken up in the ongoing series. This comes with an announcement of the Flash Annual, which will also deal with the fate of Wally West according to Tom King.
