Jeff Lemire and Dustin Nguyen have the vampiric conch, and the resulting Little Monsters #1 is sure to be another classic.
As fans of the character will attest, DC Comics has not been kind to Wally West. He’s been marginalized, erased from the timeline, brought back, and made into a killer. I’m not an avid Wally West fan, so there are probably a number of other unpleasant things done to the character that I’m not privy to. However, I can empathize with the feeling that your favorite character is getting the short end of the stick. Fortunately, The Flash #773 forgoes much of that messy history in favor of a lighter read that also serves as a decent jumping on point (you’ll still probably want to start with the previous issue first).
