DC Preview: Does Wally West Finally Get Some Respect In SPEED METAL?

It’s no secret Wally West has been one of the biggest punching bags of DC Comics’ writers in recent years, but all that looks to be over. DC has announced its Speedster-centric story from the Dark Nights: Death Metal series entitled SPEED METAL, available to retailers on 9/22.

In writer Joshua Williamson’s own words: “Wally’s race is not over!” Wally West, possessing Dr. Manhattan’s powers, is on a race through the Death Metal wastelands with an assortment of speedsters at his side.
