Welcome to the latest installment in our annotations of the collected edition of The Trial of the Flash! A while back, we analyzed related stories leading up to the release of Showcase Presents: The Trial of the Flash. In addition, we interviewed author Cary Bates about the buildup and the Trial itself, plus showed you what wasn’t included in the collection.
IN THIS ISSUE: Death in the Afternoon!

In this issue of THE FLASH, Barry tracks down the Mashup Killer and the Future Flash travels ever closer to our time! Time is the big theme here…it’s time to try and capture the Mashup Killer, time to revisit Daniel West (who is still doing time), and the Future Flash is still running back through time on his way to our time. Can he save future Wally before he runs out of time?

DC Comics’ website has a preview of The Flash #34, out this Wednesday. The preview and cover both focus on the present-day part of the story, which has also been showing us the future Flash as he travels back in time, righting wrongs as he goes just in case he fails to fix the key point in his own past.
In THE FLASH #34, time is getting closer as Future Flash reaches the point that broke his spirit – Wally West’s death. And Barry Allen gets one step closer to the Mashup Killer, but is the Mashup Killer still a step ahead? Look for THE FLASH #34, written by Robert Venditti and Van Jensen and illustrated by Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund, this Wednesday.
