Category: Covers, Flash News — By

Nerdist has a preview of The Flash #27, the first of a three-part story by writer Brian Buccellato and artist Patrick Zircher. Pasqual Ferry provides the cover for the issue, due in stores next week.

The summary has the Flash facing “a mystical serial killer who might be responsible for his mother’s murder,” but the preview focuses on a jewelry heist by Chroma (an updated Rainbow Raider) and Tar Pit.

(For those wondering about the presence of one of the villains, remember that everything up through #29 takes place before Forever Evil.)

Also included in the preview is the Scribblenauts variant cover, a riff on the classic Showcase #4 — the first appearance of Barry Allen.

Category: Covers — By

DC Comics has released a preview of Earth 2 #19, including the Scribblenauts variant cover…one which should look very familiar to Flash fans:

It’s an homage to the classic Flash #123 cover, featuring Barry Allen and Jay Garrick…but this time it’s their New 52 versions as seen through the Scribblenauts style.

MAD Flash Cover Revealed

MAD Flash #19 Variant Cover by Sam Viviano

So to speak.

Many of DC’s comics are getting MAD Magazine-inspired variant covers in April, including The Flash #19. This Sam Viviano cover was unveiled at Uproxx Gamma Squad on Wednesday. That may not have been the best place for it, since I literally saw no sign or commentary about it for two days — and I’d been looking!

I’m reminded of this Fred Hembeck strip about the Flash on laundry day.
