For six years Agent Denise has been working undercover on the front lines at Comics Unlimited. It is in this store where she reads, sells, organizes, and acts out comic books new and old. You can track her capricious thought process and love/hate affinity for shitty television on Twitter: @ironpissed or on Tumblr:

Last night the CW gave us the first official glimpse at the Scarlet Speedster himself, Barry Allen.  Holy hell, I’m really excited!  I know I’m been the least disappointed by Arrow out of us Agents but this bypasses every low standard I have for any CW production.


The lighting sparks!  The slow motion run!  The fanboy-goober excitement!  Barry Allen is almost here and thank god he’s not a shadow-y sad Eeyore of a superhero.  I might be getting too light-headed about this.  Let me catch my breath.  I’m sure they put Arrow in this teaser trailer to entice non-comic fans of the show to jump on board the Barry train but what it actually does is showcase a wonderful juxtaposition.  Arrow is brooding and dark in this very neutral background but the Flash is bright, happy, and full of life.

I really hope the show continues in this vein because it looks perfect.

[QUICK ADDITION!:  As soon as we posted this, a full 5-minute trailer for The Flash show went up, so… HERE IT IS!]
