DC Comics Preview: The Flash #800

The Flash celebrates its milestone 800th issue on June 6 with five brand-new stories.

DC Comics is celebrating The Flash and his 800th issue in an extra-sized comic featuring five brand-new stories. You can find it in comic shops on June 6th. The milestone issue was first announced in March.

So what’s The Flash #800 about?

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

The Flash joins Dawn of DC in September! Launching with The Flash #1, the award-winning new creative team of Simon Spurrier (Coda, Damn Them All) and Mike Deodato Jr. (Avengers) will chronicle the adventures of the Fastest Man Alive. Wally West has never been quicker, more fulfilled, more heroic. His loving family is around him. And yet something is off. Very off. His evolving understanding of his powers has opened Wally to new avenues of sci-fi adventure, and attuned his senses to strange new ideas. Something whispers from the dark vibrations beyond the Speed Force, and as Wally experiments with creative new approaches to his powers he encounters new realms, mysterious allies and mind-shattering terrors.
