Red: This series has been so good, it is unfortunate that the writer for the Shuri Series had left Marvel. We will have a review on both Ironheart and Shuri soon.
Synopsis: “GUEST-STARRING SHURI! Hot on the trail of the Ten Rings and trying to stop whatever destruction they have planned, Ironheart pays a visit to Wakanda… but doesn’t exactly hit it off with Princess Shuri. And a new ally may be able to shed some light on the story of Midnight’s Fire.”
The Flash #76

Red: The Year One Event is Finally over, and it was one of the best Flash stories yet, but it’s time to move on and not look back (We do not want another Flashpoint to occur!) With “Death of the Speed-Force“.
Synopsis: “Death of the Speed Force begins! With renewed resolve following the events of ‘The Flash Year One,’ the Flash is back with a new mission, a new outlook and a brand-new speedster HQ.
