DC Comics has announced a follow-up to Flashpoint starring Thomas Wayne as Batman.
Flashpoint writer Geoff Johns returns with fellow scribes Tim Sheridan and Jeremy Adams. Xermánico will handle the art in the mini-series entitled Flashpoint Beyond.
The title will be released on a bi-weekly schedule and will kick-off off with a zero issue. Flashpoint Beyond #0 features Johns as the writer with Eduardo Risso on art.
Thomas Wayne mysteriously returns to the Flashpoint world despite it being destroyed at the end of the original series. Now Thomas must explore the world to hunt for the enigmatic Clockwork Killer. His hunt will take him all over the map, including Europe, where he will encounter the mad king Aquaman.
Writers on ‘Flashpoint Beyond’
The writers could not be more excited to return to the world of Flashpoint. Johns promises that, while the series will deliver big spectacle, it will still be a very character-focused story.
Everyone working on these books is giving it their all to deliver something that is worth the readers’ time in this competitive landscape of entertainment. This is for fans of big DC events and the great history of DC when it comes to comic books.
Even though this is an event, it’s focused on character over concept – it’s the story of Thomas Wayne Batman, a Barry Allen that could’ve been, the crimes of Bruce Wayne – it’s a murder mystery, a secret mission and a look into the past, present and future of the continuum of DC. As dark as it can get in this upside down world of Flashpoint, it’s fun.
Geoff Johns Teams-up with Tim Sheridan and Jeremy Adams
Co-writer Sheridan expressed his enthusiasm to contribute to the lore.
This is something that, as a fan, I’ve been waiting for, for a long time — a return to the world of Flashpoint. The fact that I’ve gotten to be a small part of that return is just about the coolest thing that’s ever happened to me and getting to be associated with Geoff, Jeremy, Eduardo, Xermánico and a team that’s put their whole hearts into this, has made it no less than surreal. I can’t wait for people to see these pages!
Adams also joined Sheridan on how excited he is to work on the series with Johns and Sheridan.
It’s been a privilege, and incredible learning experience, to work with these talented writers, artists, inkers, letterers, colorists and editors for this series. Talking story and character has been eye-opening, and the lessons will undoubtedly color everything I do from now on.
I’m beyond excited that DC fans will get to go back to the Flashpoint Universe and experience a grounded mystery that will evoke serious philosophical questions while tugging at your heartstrings.”
Flashpoint Beyond #0 will hit comic book shops and on digital on April 5, 2022. Flashpoint Beyond #1 on April 19.
