Here are the ones that I think I am going to end up buying.
FLASHPOINT: PROJECT SUPERMAN #1
Covers: Gene Ha
Plot by: Scott Snyder
Script: Lowell Francis
Art: Gene Ha
The tag line is 'They experimented on him for years'. Given the cover, the presumption is that Superman's rocket didn't land in Kansas but instead demolished Metropolis. I guess that means it wasn't the kindly Kents but some nefarious scientists find Kal unharmed in the rocket. This theme has been played out a lot in various Elseworlds before.
Still, I have heard nothing but great things about Scott Snyder. I don't get American Vampire of Detective so this will be my first time reading his work. I am looking forward to it. And Gene Ha is just fantastic.
I guess my obvious question is will Supergirl be part of this new timeline?
FLASHPOINT: LOIS LANE AND THE RESISTANCE #1
Covers: Eddy Nunez and Sandra Hope
Writer: Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning
Art: Eddy Nunez
The tag line here is 'She is ready to reveal the Amazons' secret.' I would probably get this book regardless of whoever the creative team was. I am a sucker for a good solo Lois Lane story. But Lois leading a resistance force, even better. But much like hearing Snyder was writing the Superman book, the writers here is makes this a bigger draw. It has been a while since I have read a DnA book but I have never been dissatisfied.
I only know Eddy Nunez from his work with Ale Garza. And this cover certainly has a Garza flavor to it.
FLASHPOINT: KID FLASH LOST STARRING BART ALLEN #1
Covers: Francis Manapul
Writer: Sterling Gates
Art: Oliver Nome
The tag line is 'Where is he? Or should we say when?'This is one of those books that I am getting solely for the creative team. Hurrah! We have a Sterling Gates sighting. I know Gates is a huge Flash fan and a huge Bart fan so this should be great. I don't know Oliver Nome's stuff. But I am a big fan of Francis Manapul, so nice to see him on covers.
I don't think this is Gates' 'secret project' so I will still wait to hear about that.
FLASHPOINT: SECRET SEVEN #1
Covers: George Perez
Writer Peter Milligan
Art: George Perez and Scott Koblish
The tagline is 'One among them will betray them all!' This is one that I was not expecting to grab but there is so much unexpected goodness here, I have to get it. First off, I loved .... and I mean LOVED ... Peter Milligan's Vertigo Shade the Changing Man. That was mind-blowing great stuff. So how could I not get this mini-series, especially since Shade is manifesting a warped appearance like he did in the original Steve Ditko series ... another series I love. But add to that The Enchantress ... June Moon ... in the background! She has a history with the Silver Age Supergirl! Another bonus.
And then to see that George Perez is on art! Unreal. This is a must-get.
Others look interesting and so I might get them if the buzz makes them sound good. Jeff Lemire on Frankenstein (loved the Morrison/Mahnke Seven Soldiers mini), DnA on the Wonder Woman mini, and James Robinson doing a one-shot of 'The Outsider', who looks suspiciously like the Alfred Pennyworth villain of the Silver Age with the same name.
