I love the way the poster echoes the classic cover of the first Superman/Flash race back in Superman #199 (via comics.org):

DC has revealed its variant cover theme for April 2016: the DCU drawn by John Romita, Jr. While he’s done Superman and Batman recently, the legendary artist is best known for his work at Marvel, so bringing him over to DC for a whole month of covers is an event in itself!

Flash also appears on the Justice League and JLA covers, and you can see all of them at the linked gallery on DC’s blog.

Sure, The Flash runs faster than anyone on Earth. But Scooby and Shaggy run away faster than anyone on Earth! And it’s no wonder why, when the gang accompanies the Scarlet Speedster to the heart of Africa to come face to snout with that talking, anthropoid apparition—the Ghost of Gorilla City!

In our massive 50th issue, The Flash must win back the trust of Central City! But to do so, he needs to outrun the police force that’s been charged with bringing him down—with the awesome power of the Rogues behind it all!

Looks like the fugitive Flash story is only three issues, which is kind of a relief. (I’ve never been a fan of that kind of story.)
