Man oh man, as soon as you open the comic you immediately get immersed into the story. In earlier issues, several individuals, including Barry Allen and Iris West, were pulled into the Speed Force. As a result, almost everyone gained some speed powers once Barry (as the Flash) managed to bring them back. Their tenure with their newfound powers was short-lived as a new "Reverse" Flash has been targeting and killing them all.
Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato continue to do their magic on this title. Even a simple crime scene (seen on the opening pages) looks amazingly glorious. Barry is at a loss and feels it's his duty to stop the killer. At the same time, Dr. Elias continues his plans to harness the Flash's powers for what he believes will help mankind.
As the Flash tries to find the killer, he needs to protect Iris as well. Wait until you see Iris' new look here. Oh man! This is the other great part of the series - the art. Manapul's art is as great as ever and Buccellato's colors makes it look even better. These two go together like peanut butter and jelly (just don't ask me who is the peanut butter and who is the jelly).
The mystery and suspense continues and having a great story along with great art is what makes reading comic books such a blast.
Still waiting to learn what this Reverse Flash's motives are. But it's a fun ride as we wait.
How often can you say you've read a fascinating story complete with beautiful art? Manapul and Buccellato are a killer team handling both the story, art and colors. You'll want the issue to keep going and will likely find yourself going back to look over everything once you finish. The Flash is determined to stop the Speed Force Killer but it might not be as easy as he thought. You'll be kept in suspense as you turn each page. With a great story and gorgeous art, this is how comic books should be made.
