An issue devoted to legacy heroes…
There have been multiple versions of multiple super-characters over the years, but I think it’s fair to argue that the Flash tops them all in terms of being a legacy hero. I may prefer Barry Allen, but you can’t deny the impact of Jay Garrick, Wally West and, I suppose, even Bart Allen.
I mean, Green Lantern is right there too but there’s a whole corps of them, so it’s kind of a different animal.
Anyway, the forthcoming Back Issue #126 from TwoMorrows takes on the Flash and the whole concept of the legacy hero.

A few thoughts:
— The issue is due to ship March 17, 2021, give or take a week or so. (That is subject to change as is so much with the comics industry these days.)
— The issue will be available in comics shops but you can already pre-order it through TwoMorrows (click here).
— That Brandon Routh interview sounds compelling too. And I’ll take any chance to dive into the world of Romita.
