Flash #19 Fold-Out Cover Revealed

Flash #19 Fold-Out Cover by Francis Manapul

DC Comics has unveiled the Flash #19 fold-out cover at Newsarama. To no great surprise, it turns out to feature the new Reverse-Flash, who recently debuted in Flash #17.

Actually, I do find it a bit odd that the Reverse-Flash is holding a bloody bicycle helmet.

DC’s April covers all feature a fold-out with a surprise twist on the right side of the image (at one point they were referred to as “WTF Certified,” but that terminology has been dropped), though how many are really surprises is hard to say. The Flash is featured on the “surprise” side of Dial H #11 cover, and Kid Flash on the Vibe #3 cover. The Flash also appears on the teaser sides of Justice League Dark #19 & DC Universe Presents #19, though the full covers to those comics haven’t been released yet.

Flash #19 also has a MAD-themed variant cover.

    The guy Flash is holding is the one with the helmet on #18’s cover.

    It would have been so totally awesome if the helmet Flash Wannabe Tar Pit/future-Mota (ha ha) there is holding had belonged to Jay’s Flash because then that would be Jay that Barry trying to help. Which would have made for one powerful WTF! tie-in cover to Flash of Two Worlds. At least to me.
    I would have bought that despite my loathing of Jay’s new getup.

      BTW, I’m liking the RF costume a lot more now. It looks like armor in this cover rather than flayed flesh.
      Still have reservations on the face part of it though.
      Somehow…it makes the guy’s nose look….bigger? I dunno. I just don’t care for the face part that much.

    Hey Kyer, You’re definitely in the ballpark with regard to RF’s costume. Can’t give away the reason why, but rest assured there is an explanation for how it comes to be. That said, it’s gonna be a while before we put forth that reason. 🙂

      Well, mystery is always good for drama. That’s why we’ve yet to hear the true name of Doctor Who’s titled Time Lord.
      In the ballpark, huh? (He probably means standing on the outside white line of the outermost parking spot of the world’s largest ballpark so I’m not going to go all giddy here.) 😛
      Tarpit, A ‘Venom’ type Dark-Speed-Force symbiotic parasite, a bad case of element-molecular static cling, or just the latest fashion statement from Star Labs of Paris, it does look good. I’ve pegged pegged the face thing down as his not having much of a forehead, but that’s probably just due to the angle we’re seeing it from. Looking forward to seeing such a finished image with a full head view.
