Geoff's out of print Flash trades
 
Anyone know if or when Geoff's Flash trades: Rogues, Crossfire, and Blitz will see re-release? DC has already reprinted Blood Will Run and released John's first Flash story Wonderland. After reading those I really want to read the rest of the Johns/Kolins Flash era.

It'll probably happen because of Geoff writing Flash: Rebirth.

And welcome to the Bloc.

i hope they do reprint these but i rather they get Geoff's GL tbps (Not hardcovers) out on time, it was 3 years before the tbp for first arc came out, wasn't it?

You can always try Amazon, that's what I did. I really didn't want to wait to read them.

Crossfire is about $70 at Amazon. However, All the others are listed, and at affordable prices.

Go back and buy the back issues. Probably cheaper than buying all the trades.

(more fun too)

Yeah, I had to get a somewhat used Crossfire, but I got a brand new Blitz for a great price. I picked up the Blood Will Run reprint and managed to find the rest before they went out of print.

Not sure about those three, but last week DC announced that Rogue War is getting a second printing.

Maybe they're working inward from the edges?

I just picked up ROGUES in beautiful condition from the used books section at Barnes & Noble. Paid a measly $9 for it. I'm pretty happy.

It's been a few years since this thread was started and I have the same question - is there any word on when/if these trades will be reprinted? Blitz and Crossfire are the two I'm still looking for for a reasonable price. I'm surprised DC didn't get new printings out to coincide with John's new Flash book.

It amazes me that BLITZ isn't constantly in print.

I paid a year's savings for Crossfire..was lucky enough to find someone selling Blitz at almost half the price everyone else was selling it for.

Those are two of the best trades with Wally. Why don't they get reprinted?

Probably for the same reason that my local discount department store has a large selection of Marvel toys, but only a handful of JLU and Batman toys....DC is lousy at mass marketing.

Years ago I was a Digimon fan who didn't care for Pokemon. Imagine my disappointment that the only Digimon toys out were the main characters and stuff like boring pencil sets and lunch boxes. Meanwhile, Pokemon had all kinds of action figures in a variety of sizes plus plushies and....geez...loads of stuff. They were smart and are still selling stuff and making shows. Digimon might as well be dead for all that it had a better storyline.

DC might want to wise up. Maybe they will once they start making good movies beyond the Batman ones.
