DC Comics's big news of yesterday is that Flash: Rebirth will now be six issues instead of five, causing much debate on the blog and Twitosphere.

At the same time, DC has now quietly solicited the Flash: Rebirth hardcover collection for January 2010. Of course we all knew a Flash: Rebirth collection was inevitable, but I'm mildly surprised to see it when we're only in the second issue of the series. Those not pleased with purchasing a sixth issue might very well decide at this point to wait for the trade.

  1. Good catch. Something that makes this timing interesting is that it'll probably be out around the time that the new Flash series launches -- depending, of course, on whether they launch the ongoing series during or after the Blackest Night: Flash miniseries.

  2. Geez. The story's not even halfway over.

  3. I don't mind the early solicitation; in fact bookstores demand that you tell them when a book is coming out many many months before the fact. That's just the reality of getting into the bookstore market.

  4. I imagine the new Flash series brings with it some controversy -- old numbering or new numbering? Who draws it? How long will Johns stay, etc.?
