Not a dream, not an imaginary story, not an Elseworld. This is Flash Fact: When Barry Allen wakes at his desk, he discovers the world has changed. Family is alive, loved ones are strangers, and close friends are different, gone or worse. It's a world on the brink of a cataclysmic war-but where are Earth's Greatest Heroes to stop it? It's a place where America's last hope is Cyborg, who hopes to gather the forces of the Outsiders, the Secret 7, Shazam!, Citizen Cold and other new and familiar yet altered faces! It's a world that could be running out of time, if The Flash can't find the villain who altered the timeline!

This was an interesting alternate world story with MANY supplemental tales to help make sense of the entire universe created and destroyed in these five issues. As a standalone story, it's interesting. With all of the other chapters, it's EXTREMELY interesting and fun. As a near complete reboot of the DC Universe, I don't feel it was completely necessary.

Miss the old DC, but I guess they felt that they needed some change. Godd book though.

An altered past leads to an altered present and we see very different DC characters as they might have been. It's kind of fun to see a completely different Batman, who is still somewhat the same. But it's overcharged and a bit fatiguing too.

This book made me hate the self centered jerk bag the flash.

Yet another big event, this one centred on the Flash, who comes to in a world completely changed from what he knows and has to set it right. Glimpses of the (completely unneeded) post-reboot DC universe are seen in one of the last adventures of the pre-reboot DCU. It's a shame DC made the switch. Plus points to the book: good writing from Johns, terrific art by Kubert, and an unexpected moment of emotion from one character you'd never expect.
