Either way, if it's really getting under people's skin, it's enough. Assy, quit being a jerk; Mysti, quit letting him get to you.

I picked up the first trade (Amazon had the HC for under $10, so I figured what the hell), and it was pretty decent. I can see where the criticism of decompression came from, though. It was a full eight issues, but I blew through the whole thing in no time at all. Loved the art by Manapul and Kollins, of course. I don't know jack about Brightest Day, so when they started up with that I was pretty lost, but the whole thing with The Renegades was pretty neat.

So after seeing some posts saying that Barry's run had gotten pretty decent I decided I'd check the first six out to see for myself. I didn't share that opinion. My expectations for Flashpoint have dropped even lower. Which I guess could be a good thing if I decide to give it Johns another chance again.

I honestly think that people who don't like the current Flash book are the same people who don't like Green Lantern and that is simply because of a dislike towards the main title character as opposed to actual flaws in the story.

Even though I would have liked to have Wally continue on as the core Flash, I've been finding the current run on the Flash mythos to be pretty damn good.

I don't like the current Flash book, but I love the Green Lantern stuff. Of course I've always been a Hal fan just as much as a Kyle fan.

Barry wasn't what I disliked. It was everything around Barry that ranged from "meh" to not good.

Well, sure, for some, but fairly ridiculous to make such a generalization. I mean, yeah, I enjoyed that first volume, but damn man, it wasn't that good. Not like we're talking Casanova or DeadpoolMAX or anything here.
