I was at my local library when I spotted the Essentials collection of The Trial Of The Flash. I remember picking up a few issues of this story when it first came out, but never read the entire run from beginning to end. The whole thing goes on for quite a long period of time, over two years, culminating in The Flash #350. It's almost legendary how it ends, using a method that only work in comic books, with the Flash killing his arch-enemy, responsible for the murder of his first wife, on the day the hero is to marry his second wife, Fiona Webb. Unfortunately for Fiona, the Flash had to abandon his Barry Allen identity and ended up going to live in the thirtieth century with his first wife, who'd come back to get him acquitted of murdering the Reverse Flash. Like I said, only in comics. I was curious about whatever happened to Fiona Webb, and she simply never appeared again after the Trial of the Flash. She only showed up again in flashbacks. Where she went after this day is unknown, but I would like to think that she had an absolutely normal life unaffected by super-heroes. Of course, that would be silly.

This season of The Flash looks to be one with plenty of Easter eggs for comic book fans. Already two episodes in and we have had Atom Smasher, Jay Garrick and references to numerous other comic book characters. This week's episode "Flash of Two Worlds" was ripe with references to various comic book stories.

Look at the End of this Article For An Update. On his Tumblr, comic book writer Gerry Conway took DC Entertainment to task for their policy of claiming that characters were derivative, justifying not paying their creators for the character's use in other media. Unfortunately, they also claim that the creators of the original character aren't the creators either, thus no one gets creator credit and thus, pay no royalties to anyone. He also points out that DC Entertainment stopped proactively crediting creators after the departure of former DC President Paul Levitz, and now creators have to request royalties for all characters that they created in their time working for DC. It's despicable that DC uses faulty logic to stop creators from benefit in any way from their creations' use in mass media that nets DC, and their parent company Warner Bros. millions in revenue.
Week 3 of Convergence books are here! I am really looking forward to these stories of heroes from Crisis of Infinite Earths. Hopefully these will turn into some classic DC stories. Read on for more.
Secret Origins, Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie, Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern: New Guardians, Red Lanterns, Aquaman and the Others, Klarion, Trinity of Sin, Worlds' Finest, Arkham Manor, Batwoman and Swamp Thing will draw to a close after their March issues. Don't fret though, I am sure DC will be adding more titles after Convergence. Also take note that Injustice will also end. Hopefully the next season will commence sometime soon.
