  1. I’m looking forward to this, nice one on giving us Godiva. And Mrs Hyde? Hee.

    As with this week’s excellent Kid Flash: Lost, though, the understanding of what constitutes the UK is squiffy – DC needs to get a Brit to give pages a quick look over before signing off on them – there are enough in the industry.

    Still, points for ‘tad’.

  2. Wow, he didn’t tell us much, did he?

  3. The line ‘England and her United Kingdom’  is a bit of a clunker, considering that Mike Carey is British, but I was sold on the comic from the title alone.

  4. I find it interesting that Etrigan The Demon is popping up in a few Flashpoint books, whether it was in the background of a cover or the interior of this Canterbury Cricket tie book.

  5. @timbermunki  I think you misread a name there, this is Mike Carlin, not Carey.

  6. I’m sold. Picking this one up tomorrow.
