Digital Flashbacks: Flash vs. the Icicle and the Magic of Impulse

Flash #56: The Return of the Icicle Impulse #17 guest-starring Zatanna

This week’s digital backissues at ComiXology include Flash #56-57 and Impulse #17-18.

Flash #56-57 feature a classic murder mystery, as it’s revealed that the Golden Age villain, the Icicle, had a rather large (legitimate) fortune when he died, and his will left a large amount to…the Flash? Wally West and his friends visit the Makhent mansion for the reading of the well, and one of the other heirs is found murdered in the middle of a snowstorm.

Impulse #17-18 take a break from the seriousness of the Max Mercury flashback with a pair of done-in ones. First: Bart Allen teams up with Zatanna. Do you really need to know anything else? And second, what do hyperactive speedsters dream about? Bart is trapped in a series of virtual reality scenarios.
