Flash: Rebirth #5 Cover Revealed

DC’s The Source spotlights seven August Covers, including the cover for Flash: Rebirth#5.

It’s the latest homage to the classic “Flash of Two Worlds” cover from Flash v.1 #123, the first meeting of Barry Allen and Jay Garrick — only this time it’s Barry Allen vs. the Black Flash, and the poor hapless construction worker has been crushed by the falling beam.

There are actually two visual references to this famous cover in Flash: Rebirth #1 as well — a parade float, and then a side view in Jay Garrick’s reminiscences.

Also of interest is the cover to Final Crisis Aftermath: Escape, in which it looks like Nemesis is running on the Cosmic Treadmill.

        I was just being ridiculous as usual…

        The cover is fun but the notion of a fist fight with Black Flash deflates the idea of it as an inescapable harbinger of doom. I don’t know why it’s easy for me to see Barry as Black Flash but deny him a KO, but there it is. 😛
