Flash #62 Preview

DC has posted the official preview pages for Flash #62, which you can read in full at Comicosity. It gives us a better glimpse of the new Sage Force user Psych, who we met briefly last issue, though one wonders if we can trust him.

Here’s hoping he’s a quick study, because the Flash needs his help against the dual threat known as Gemini, who wants to steal both the Speed and Sage Forces! And whose side is Power-house on when the Strength Force agent shows up to flex her muscle?
