In March, after The Flash: Rebirth has finished but before the launch of the new Flash ongoing series, DC Comics will release an all-new edition of The Flash: Secret Files and Origins, featuring the expected line-up of revised origin stories and character profiles. This issue should prove a good jumping-on point for new readers--certainly more accessible than The Flash: Rebirth has proven! The cover for the issue offers us the first glimpse of artist Francis Manapul's take on the crimson comet. As usual, visit Newsarama for a complete listing of DC Comics's March 2010 releases.
