Flashpoint Vs Fear Itself.....so far

Hey gang, last week DC Comics released Flashpont #1 which is the big summer event. It promised to change everything in a flash and i did. And i'm not sure if i really enjoyed it.I'm also reading the Marvel summer event Fear Itself.While some of the players in Fear Itself seem a bit not like themselves, i think i liked it better. Now i don't think that these are bad comics,it's just that i enjoyed reading one more than the other. I can't really put my finger on it, but Flashpoint just seemed to be missing something.Or maybe i just didn't feel in the mood to read another story of time travel and the like.I think i can say that for the first time ever, I've run across a Geoff Johns story that i didn't like. I'm sure that as it goes on Flashpoint will get better, but for now anyway Fear Itself has everything you'd want in a big summer blockbuster. As the summer rolls on i'll come back here and give my two cents on how these two stories are doing and let you know which one i'm enjoying the most. Until then try not to troll to much.

  1. Ugh! Time travel! It's the easiest excuse to bring back a character. Just say they came from the past... or an alternate reality... It's like there is no real sense of consequences/repercussions to altering reality. Like I don't know how much of a hold, bringing back the Flash's mom will have. The Flash's life will probably go back to normal after the event. It would be a huge shock if it didn't and it stayed this way. The Flash will probably be more stressed/crazy afterwards. Maybe they'll bring in a new guy to be the Flash then... I don't know, but that's all I got for now. I feel like the story will pick up once we get the next issue. So much happened in the first one and it's a lot to process.

  2. I feel like this is just a primer of things to come. No doubt i think that Geoff Johns stubled on his way out of the gate. But i think that he is a very strong storyteller, so as we move forward we may just hit paydirt. I hope.
