Flash #63 Preview

DC has released the official preview pages for this week’s Flash #63 (there are two Flash issues out this week), and you can see them at DC Comics News. The pages have been shrunk down on the site, but you can make them full size by changing each image URL; I posted larger versions at my fandom blog, if that helps. Mind you, Tumblr also shrinks down images, so those aren’t full-sized either.

A HEROES IN CRISIS tie-in! In Barry’s grief and guilt following Wally West’s death at Sanctuary, he refuses to divulge the heartbreaking news to the rest of the Flash family until he’s searched every corner of the globe for his former partner— including inside the Speed Force itself. But his journey into the heart of all speedster powers inadvertently triggers the release of his long-lost ally Godspeed! And when Godspeed immediately races off to attack Kid Flash Wallace West, Barry must hunt his former friend and check in on his fellow speedsters. What is Godspeed planning and what does he want with the rest of the Flash Family? Can Barry protect everyone after he couldn’t save Wally? With a heart-wrenching appearance from Wally’s former sidekick, the recently returned Bart Allen, this annual is an absolute can’t-miss for all Flash fans!
