Hi! I'm Pivitor
I have a lot of feelings about Saves the Day.
I also write about comics for Retcon Punch and sometimes I play bass.
Sometimes I'll write on this blog, but it's mostly just my place to reblog anything I find funny or appealing or interesting.
I promise you I'll never be "that guy", and if I am, please feel free to side-eye me until I shape up.
I love comics, music, and a wide assortment of pretty much every kind of entertainment out there. Check out the links below to see more of what I'm into!
Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to say hi!
I love the way the new Flash mask looks but I don’t like the lightning bolts being flush with the mask because that means this will never happen:
My friend Michelle (yodalicious) asked me to recommend her some Flash comics a while back and I’ve been woefully negligent in doing so, so here I am now, doing it. I’m making this post public so that any of my other followers who might be interested can check some issues out, or so that any other followers with different recommendations can add their own to the list. I’d love to hear ‘em, and Michelle, I hope you find something on here to enjoy.
Anyway, I’m going to start with the basic, bare necessity recommendations. These are some of the most vital, enjoyable, and Flash-centric stories out of my recommendations, at least one for each Flash. Under the cut I’ll break things down in order, by Flash, and give you basically every good Flash story I can think of. It’s very long, but only because I care.
Mark Waid’s first run (Wally West) [The Flash v.2, #62-129 and #142-162]
Geoff Johns first run (Wally West) [The Flash v. 2 #164-225]
Grant Morrison and Mark Millar’s run (Wally West) [The Flash v.2 #130-141]
Mark Waid’s Impulse (Bart Allen) [Impulse #1-27]
Sterling Gates and Oliver Nome’s Flashpoint tie-in (Bart Allen) [Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost 1-3]
"The Dastardly Death of the Rogues" by Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul (Barry Allen) [The Flash v.3 #1-6]
Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato’s NEW 52 Flash run (Barry Allen) [The Flash v. 4 issues 0-25, plus The Flash v. 4 Annuals 1-2 and The Flash 23.2: The Reverse Flash #1]
David Goyer and Geoff Johns JSA (Jay Garrick) [JSA #1-81]
Anyway, I try to give you issue numbers, TPB names, and digital availability, but I’m not always consistent with the digital aspect. Honestly, I just assume that any book from Infinite Crisis onward is probably available on Comixology, but I did research some of the older books to see if they were available. If I don’t mention Comixology for a specific story, it doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t available; if you’re interested in finding out, just Google the issue number and Comixology and it’s very easy to find out!
Alright, here we go!
