Francis Manapul's made a name for himself with his energetic linework and exciting layouts in the pages of ADVENTURE COMICS, and he kicks it up a notch with THE FLASH -- presenting a sleek and modern Central City that is both reverential to the past and modernized.

The new archnemesis of those who ride the lightning is coming for Iris Allen. And the Barry Allen you knew is gone forever...or is he? What change does Wally West face? What destiny will Kid Flash choose? Prepare to meet a Flash Family that's both familiar and different and get to the starting line for the next epic adventures of the Speed Force.
