If you’re a regular Source reader, you know that while we love talking the talk, we know when to step back and let a piece of art speak for itself. This is one of those instances.

Not too long ago, we announced that Geoff Johns and artist Francis Manapul were taking the reins of the new FLASH ongoing series next year. We also showed a few in-progress pieces of the character, too. But we haven’t shown any final, colored, 100-percent Barry Allen Flash images. Until now, that is.

It all comes to a head in FLASH: REBIRTH #5

A few things about this issue: Readers will meet the greatest threat to face the Flash family in decades. A new hero will step into an old speedster's boots. Barry Allen makes the ultimate sacrifice. Yep. You read that correctly. Courtesy of superstar writer Geoff Johns and artist Ethan Van Sciver. You've heard it said before, but this issue doesn't dance around it -- nothing will be the same.

FLASH: REBIRTH #5 hits 11/18.
