The presence of all the new forces (Strength, Still, Sage) is causing the Speed Force to fade away. Barry and all the speedsters are getting slower. Without something to turn things around, the Speed Force itself will die! Who can save the Speed Force? By now we have that answer – but the presence of [REDACTED] places all other force users in danger! Barry is once again trying to save everyone, but that plan is quickly falling apart. That’s where we pick up in THE FLASH #78 – want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
Barry has his hands full, with danger on every front. [REDACTED] appeared last issue to try to kill the user of the Still Force. Captain Cold is up to something tied to the Year of the Villain, and that can’t be good. And, the Speed Force is…dying! Things are starting to look bleak for our Scarlet Speedster. Wanna know more?

This issue of THE FLASH gives you a little bit of everything. Barry and Alexa (no, not THAT Alexa, I mean Fuerza) are fighting a weapon powered by the Sage Force. Fuerza learns more about the control of her own Strength Force. Barry brings out a little-used aspect of his own Speed Force. And, as we move to the avatar of the Sage Force itself you’ll see…wait, don’t want to spoil that here. Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
Barry and Iris are on a world tour…scratch that, Force Quest…okay, pretty much the same thing, but still a great adventure. When we left them in the last issue, Barry had just met the newest avatar of the Strength Force, Fuerza! It’s speed versus strength in an epic battle – and they aren’t the only ones involved in the fight! Want to know more? Just follow us after the jump!
Barry Allen may not be the Fastest Man Alive any more, but right now he IS one of the strongest! The Strength Force has claimed him, and as we left last issue both Barry and Axel were being targeted by Commander Cold with a potentially lethal shot! This book carries a lot of the best of the Silver Age, but with a modern take that makes this an outstanding issue. Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
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!
