"Showcases the Flash's likability and almost a hint of goofiness ... a lot of potential for greatness."—USA Today
"A visual treat.... Any reader can easily jump on board."—The New York Times
"The Flash will be one of the runaway hits of this reboot--and could eventually become one of the great runs of American superhero comics."—Time Out Chicago
Struck by a bolt of lightning and doused in chemicals, Central City police scientist Barry Allen was transformed in to the Fastest Man Alive. But there are some things even the Flash can’t outrun.
In the supermax prison called Iron Heights, the Flash’s most dangerous enemy plans his escpe, dreams of revenge, and prepares to put the Flash on ice for good—driven by a personal grudge the Flash can’t see coming.
And deep within the Flash himself, incredible new powers are ready to be unleashed—unforeseen, unexplored abilities fueled by the same Speed Force that makes the Flash run, and which could be his greatest weapon… or his worst nightmare.
