Let me get this out of the way…I loved this issue of THE FLASH! From the sheer number of Easter Eggs in the opening splash page to the discovery of [REDACTED] at the end, this was a great issue. Barry is wishing things could be as they were, but that’s hard after the events of Flash War. Still, Central City is the same, right? Right? Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
DC has the official seven-page preview for this week’s issue of The Flash, and you can see it at CBR. As per the solicitation, you’ll notice many Multiversal Flashes in the preview, including some who haven’t been seen in quite a while such as Tangent Flash, Fastback, the Flashes of Kingdom Come and the Justice Riders, and many more.
The primary cover is at left, and the variant is shown below.

Variant Cover by Gabriele Dell’Otto
On your mark, get set and go for part one of “Grips of Strength”! Barry Allen races to the House of Heroes at the center of the Multiverse to meet with the Flashes of 52 worlds for info on the new forces he’s recently encountered. Meanwhile, back in Central City, Trickster’s turning informant against Warden Wolfe, but that brings about a sneak attack that Barry and the time-lost Commander Cold must team up to stop—if they can quit butting heads long enough to do so.
