Flash #50

THE FLASH #50
Written by ROBERT VENDITTI and VAN JENSEN
Art by JESUS MERINO
Cover by IVAN REIS and JOE PRADO
Variant cover by DUNCAN FEGREDO
On sale MARCH 30 • 48 pg, FC, $4.99 US • RATED T

In our massive 50th issue, The Flash must win back the trust of Central City! But to do so, he needs to outrun the police force that’s been charged with bringing him down—with the awesome power of the Rogues behind it all!

Looks like the fugitive Flash story is only three issues, which is kind of a relief. (I’ve never been a fan of that kind of story.)

More at DC’s March 2016 solicitations at Newsarama.
