    So I decided to check out Flash #50 since it was advertised as the end of the Flash Wars that been getting a lot of publicity lately. After reading it, I went to this message board and found nothing for the last five issues except a thread from #49 about whether the age-old "Flash/Superman: who's faster?" question had finally been answered - which appears to have little to do with the current story.

    So is it just that the TV series is so interesting compared to the comic, or is the comic storyline not worth talking much about? Thanks!


These comicboards overall seem to have less traffic than 10+ years ago, as least some of them. Once the TV show started, most conversation on this board turned towards the show. I read the comic, and like the writing. The art ranges from OK to bad.
Sales seem pretty good for modern times, around 46,000 copies sold for each issue (that is double what the Green Lantern books have been getting, which I also read), so it is getting read, just not inspiring people to write about it.
