On Sale: The Flash #2

Abra Kadabra remains locked-up at Iron Heights, but the Rogues Gallery proper and their futuristic doubles are spreading havoc in The Flash #2, on sale tomorrow. In all honesty, for this Flash fan's money, the first installment of this revitalized series was more captivating, more entertaining, more impressive than the whole of The Flash: Rebirth combined. Geoff Johns has brought our beloved characters vividly to life for an engrossing, twist-filled tale in the classic scarlet speedster style and, perhaps most notable of all, Francis Manapul's artwork for the series is simply marvelous. It's a joy and a relief to have Manapul on this book, really. In other words, "The Dastardly Death of the Rogues" is shaping up to be the sort of story arc that you don't want to miss! Not convinced? Visit DC Comics's The Source for a five-page preview and a glimpse at Manapul's stunning artwork for the new issue.
