Blackest Night: The Flash #1 sees release today, the first in a three-part mini-series. For my money, Blackest Night represents the most engaging crossover event to hit the DC Universe in a long, long time. It's going to be a lot of fun seeing the Flashes of Two Cities and the collective Rogues Gallery face off against a line-up of undead Black Lantern Rogues. (This fan can't wait to see Black Lantern Rainbow Raider in action!) Of course, an adventure like this is worth the price of admission just for its creative team; any Flash fan knows that Johns and Kolins can work magic together. IGN has a five-page preview of the issue offering a glimpse at the dramatis personae for this macabre skirmish.
Written by Geoff Johns; Art and cover by Scott Kolins; Variant cover by Francis Manapul. The Flashes of Two Cities--Barry Allen and Wally West--battle the undead Rogues. Will the legendary speedsters be able to handle the Black Lantern Rogues's revenge? Plus, witness the resurrection of Barry's greatest enemy, the Reverse Flash in this hyper-speed miniseries event reuniting the fan-favorite Flash creative team of Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins! DC Universe. 32pg. Color. $2.99 US. On Sale December 2, 2009.
