History is about to be made this February with the release of The Flash #750, and to mark the occasion with the respect it deserves, DC Comics is assembling a dream team of writers and artists to deliver an over-sized special issue... while also revealing the start of the next age of The Flash.
The new story arc from writer Josh Williamson may prove to be the most important for the years that follow, but there's no denying that attention will fall on the talent, debuting and returning to The Flash as part of the hero's celebration. The 750th issue will arrive with a cover from veteran Flash artist Howard Porter, but the stories within the 80-page prestige format issue will span generations and multiverses of super-speedsters. And it hits newsstands on February 26th, 2020.
Joining current Flash writer Joshua Williamson for the landmark issue is an all-star team of writers and artists including Geoff Johns, Marv Wolfman, Francis Manapul, Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona, Stephen Segovia, David Marquez, Bryan Hitch, Riley Rossmo, Scott Kolins and Michael Moreci. The Flash #750 also features a variant cover for each decade the character has been published, including art from Nicola Scott, Francis Manpaul, José Luis García-López, Jim Lee and Scott Williams, Gary Frank, and more. But as mentioned above, the issue is more than a victory lap for one of DC's most beloved superheroes, and driving force of the company's Silver Age of DC Comics. Williamson will be telling a story titled “The Flash Age,” beginning a new arc with artists Rafa Sandoval and Jordi Tarragona. Williamson shares his excitement in DC's official press release:
The Flash is one of my favorite DC characters, so it's an honor to work on The Flash #750 with so many returning Flash legends! It's a showcase of awesome talent, each telling a story that celebrates what we love about the Flash and the Flash family. And what a perfect place to kick off our next epic storyline "The Flash Age!" 2020 is going to be a big year for The Flash. It all starts in this massive issue.
