On sale MARCH 2 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • RATED E

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!

Ten-year-old me would have been all over this.

Flash #49 Preview is up

Flash #49Freaksugar has a preview of Flash #49, out in stores on Wednesday.

On the run from a police task force assigned to take him out, The Flash must face the CCPD’s newest deputies: The Rogues. As you can tell from the cover, it does not go particularly well.

Written by Robert Venditti and Van Jensen, art by Philippe Briones. Cover by Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Adriano Lucas.

Flash #48 Preview is Up

Flash #48Blastr has a preview of Flash #48, due out on Wednesday. After the disastrous battle with Professor Zoom, Central City wants the police to bring in the Flash — and they’re deputizing the Rogues to do it!

Venditti and Jensen continue as writers, and the new art team of Jesus Merino and Guy Major take over this issue, with a cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado.

Is the missing Heat Wave dead—or alive? The Rogues reunite to find out. But the search has gone so bad that they need to enlist the help of The Flash to find out!

This seems like an odd time to bring the Rogues back in, as the Zoom Crew’s story rushes to its conclusion next month. Maybe it’s a temporary description that stuck.

The Flash By Geoff Johns Book One is coming out as well (this Wednesday to comic stores, next Tuesday to bookstores). This softcover collection follows up on the hardcover Omnibus series from a few years back, and according to Amazon it collects:

  • The Flash #164-176: Wonderland, Blood Will Run, and Birth Right.
  • Iron Heights
  • The Flash Secret Files #3
  • The Flash: Our Worlds at War

This Week: Flash vs the Black Racer in Darkseid War

Crave Online has a preview of Justice League: Darkseid War: The Flash, in which the Flash becomes the New Gods’ avatar of death, the Black Racer. Darkseid is dead, and the Flash is now bound to death…but can he outrace part of himself?

Written by Rob Williams, art by Jesus Merino, cover by Francis Manapul. In stores Wednesday.
