Following the Flash, the fastest man alive!
i think wally and linda have the most romantic and moving relationship in comics. :)
Saranga, you said it! And I couldn't agree more. I had a few different options for today's post but I just had to go with this splash page. Happy Valentine's Day!
That reminds me, I'd like to pick your brains if I may..Could you recommend a trade (or story arc if you're not sure of the trade names) which specifically looks at Wally and Linda's relationship? I've got a comics reveiw site for new comics readers and I've wanted to review a book that focuses on their relationship and Linda as Wally's anchor but I'm not sure which one to pick. Any ideas?Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
The first thing you're going to want to do, Saranga, if you haven't already, is read "Terminal Velocity" (The Flash v.2 #95-100). This was a pivotal story arc for many reasons, including its development of Wally's relationship with Linda. It definitively established that Linda was literally Wally's "anchor" in this world, that his love for her was keeping him from merging with the speed force. Other issues and stories have further explored their relationship, but I can't think of a better trade collection to start with. I hope it's helpful. Do let me know if and when you post the review! I'd love to read it.
hey, thanks for the recc! I have read terminal velocity - actually i've read the majority of wally's run - i just avae this problem of not being able to remember which bits happened where!anyway, that's make a perfect start and I will def come back and tell when the review is posted. ta for the help. :)
You're very welcome. Crimson Lightning, both the blog and the series index, exist in part to act as a reference tool! Do let me know if you need further recommendations in the future.
