‘Kid Flash’ series put on hold

by Matthew Price Published: December 23, 2009

At a video statement at Newsarama discussing plans for 2010, DC Executive Editor Dan DiDio states that the Kid Flash series, which was to be written by Tulsa native Sterling Gates, has been put on hold.  Additionally, a planned co-feature with Wally West has also been sidelined.  DiDio indicated that the “Flash” plan for next year was to focus solely on the recently revived Silver Age Flash.

“Your ‘Flash’ fix will be Barry Allen, pure and simple, for 2010,” DiDio said in the video.

Gates still has several DC projects in the works for the coming year – he’s involved with in a four-issue arc on “Adventure Comics” and he’s writing “Superman: Last Stand of New Krypton” with James Robinson.   And Gates is still the regular writer on “Supergirl” with artist Jamal Igle.
