    The reason why Gorilla Grodd hates The Flash and humans in general makes so much sense.

    Plus, I'm calling it now: Dr. Elias is going to become the new Zoom.

    Looks great. I hope these guys stay on the book for a really long time, it's a great series that captures what the Flash should be.

    Francis Manapul: It's one of those things where I like drawing them on the covers, but then as we were doing the story I was like, "God -- that's a lot of gorillas!"
    That should be the quote on the cover of the trade
    Saga, Private Eye, Chew, Umbral, Deadly Class, Pretty Deadly

    She-Hulk, Ghost Rider, Loki, Moon Knight, Iron Fist, Daredevil, Punisher, X-Factor

    All we know is he got struck by lightning and next thing we know he was the Flash, but what made him become that? What inspired him to become the Flash?
    Because, maybe, he's a heroic guy who wants to do some good, and he lives in a world where people who want to do that become superheroes? Sometimes no further explanation is needed.

    Modern Comic Book writers should have the word "Verisimilitude" taped to their computer monitors.

    Love this title. Can't say enough good things about it.

    I am stoked that we are getting back into an arc format with this book! I mean, I really liked the one shots with all the Rogues but I am stoked for a long Grodd arc

    Amen! The same goes for Grodd, sometimes evil is evil for no other reason. Blurring the lines and applying a degree of empathy conveys a level of naivety that to me is not interesting.

    I was looking for a spot to jump back in to reading the FLASH, but the more interviews these creators do, the less interested I get. It's too bad really, because I think the art is amazing, but that alone is not enough to get me back.

    One of the best things to come out of Flashpoint was the Grodd of War one-shot. Excellent origin/explanation for him. Evil for evil's sake, but still with depth and nuance...too bad there was never any payoff for that setup.

    They aren't really making Grodd less evil, more that they are giving him a reason for being "evil". I don't really see the problem in that.
