This morning, COMIC BOOK RESOURCES announced that THE FLASH #17 would introduce one of the Scarlet Speedster’s greatest foes into DC COMICS-THE NEW 52: Reverse-Flash!
“This Reverse-Flash is going to be a complete re-imagining of him in the same way that we kind of tinkered with what the Speed Force is,” series co-writer and artist Francis Manapul told COMIC BOOK RESOURCES. “We're going to be explaining what the opposite side of that is. He's the Yin to [Barry's] Yang.”
“We've stated what Flash's mission is and why he runs,” continued co-writer Brian Buccellato. “Reverse-Flash is going to flip that on its ear. For astute people that have been following our book, they can already get an idea of what Reverse-Flash's mission is going to be.”
THE FLASH #17 speeds into stores on February 27, 2013. Head on over to COMIC BOOK RESOURCES to read their full coverage and to see their exclusive reveal of the issue’s cover.
