THE FLASH VOL. 2: SPEED OF DARKNESS deals a lot with the aftermath of what writer Joshua Williamson laid down in volume one. Godspeed (a.k.a. August), has had a big effect on Barry Allen, Iris West and Wally West. Not only did the three of them all lose people they had a connection with in their civilian identities, but in their professional capacities they are all equally as affected—albeit pretty differently.
In this week’s issue of THE FLASH #20, the bodies of Godspeed’s victims are disappearing. Iris West, with the help of Barry Allen, investigates the reason behind these disappearances.
Iris ends up at the Speed Force Training Center where she runs into Black Hole scientists. As she goes deeper, Iris discovers more about the missing bodies. But what else does she uncover? Find out more in this week’s issue of THE FLASH #20 from writer Joshua Williamson and artists Neil Googe, Ivan lascencia, and Steve Wands.

In “Without Sin”, a flip of a coin and a trip to the confessional leads Harvey Dent to become the prime suspect in a grisly murder.

And Dent isn’t afraid to kill just to defend his innocence. Always the detective, Batman digs deep into city corruption, anonymous donors, and the cryptic clues that the church refuses to help him decipher.
