DC Comics Universe and Heroes In Crisis #9 Aftermath follows.
Wally West The Flash Series For October 2019? Doomsday Clock #12 Impact? Demythify!
Heroes in Crisis writer Tom King had some words concerning the controversial ending in Heroes in Crisis #9 for Wally West the Flash:
“…We took this character that I love — my first introduction to DC Comics was Wally West. He’s my favorite Flash, and he’s really the Peter Parker of the DCU. He’s our every man. And for over ten years he’s not had his own book and has been at the periphery of things. Basically, since before the New 52, he’s been gone. This story puts Wally back at the center of the DC Universe, where he belongs…It’s my job to pull that off and make people ask ‘What happens to Wally next? Where does he go from here?
I think [Wally’s] in a place to be launched into something huge, which is worthy of him. I think that’s good. I think the same for Dick…Dick Grayson, to me, is the fourth pillar of the DCU. No one can kill him. You can only injure him until he comes back, which I think is cool. I don’t feel like I changed him in that way. But what happens in that book is not for me to say. Nightwing is their book, not mine. And that’s fine.”
Word is that a new Wally West series in the offing and set for an announcement at San Diego Comic Con 2019 (SDCC 2019) which happened between July 18, 2019 and July 21, 2019.
DC Comics would be announcing its October 2019 books in July 2019; would they wait for this news until SDCC? Also, Doomsday Clock #12 is set for release some time in the Fall of 2018.
Doomsday Clock #10 just hit stands and had an important Wally West (Kid Flash) moment with Doctor Manhattan that set up DC Universe Rebirth #1.
So the question is whether DC has to wait until Doomsday Clock #12 comes to establish the new status quo for the elder Wally West?
Doomsday Clock #11 is schedule for an August 14, 2019 release (so far).
