Well, I hope you're right. Wally isn't the only character who's been totally underused.

And I noticed something: SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Axel Walker is older here and uses the codename "Trixster" as opposed to "Trickster." Wouldn't it be funny if he had to change the spelling because James Jesse trademarked the name?



Yeah, I like this too! I just wonder now: SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
who IS the Piper in Flashpoint 1? Is it Wally or Hartley?

I think it's Hartley. The guy from Flashpoint #1 wouldn't be able to hide the damage done to his jaw and throat or speak normally, so it's clearly a different person from Wally here. And Cold made a reference to the guy in Flashpoint being gay, although that could just be more Cold-dickery.

Depends on whether this issue takes place before or after Flashpoint #1.

Good point. I assumed it did, but maybe not.

Dear Mr. Kolins,

You should be damn proud of this issue, it was fantastic. Can't wait for the rest.

I should add: this is the first comic book I've read in months that had me wishing I could read the next issue NOW.

I'm not even a fan of villains and I want to know how this goes. Maybe it's because of Iris and Wally, yeah, but also because this Snert kind of reminds me of him during Ignition where I kind of grudgingly respected the guy.

Extremely doubt the local (and dying) bookstore is carrying anything on Flashpoint. Maybe next time I order a trade online they will have all three issues available (shipping costs being murder) or maybe it will be be a mini trade? Whatever....will keep my eye out.

I suppose they will do trades of all flashpoints series, pairing the most logical ones to be paired. I can see this one being paired with the Kid Flash one. 6 issues make a perfect TPB set.

Seconded. I did love the small touches with Mirror Master and SPOILER. Highlight below text to read
Trixter annoying the heck out of his fellow prisoners. And Weather Wizard's bro is still alive, eh?



Just one small thing: We've seen Len's, uh, housekeeping habits in the past. The guy's a slob. How come his digs are so clean and well-kept in this mini?

Isn't this an alternative Len, though?

I think this takes place before Flashpoint #1. Maybe Scott can let us know.

You. Will. Enjoy it.

One thing I wish someone would explain:

Cold wears that parka year 'round. Suppose he's in a sweaty club? Or there's a heat wave (no, not THAT one!) in Central City? I'm guessing the Rogues hideouts don't have A/C. Doesn't he worry about heatstroke?

And what's with the white fluff around the hood?

I suspect that he's got stock with ICE men's deodorant.
'Eskimo' parkas are lined with fur at the hood. (Silver Age.)
