With the success of the television program, it was clear that the New 52 “Flash” series wasn’t going to cut it in ‘Rebirth.’ Enter Joshua Williamson and co, who get the character in a similar way to how the folks making The Flash over at the CW do, and you get a Barry Allen that feels far more apiece with the classic iteration of the character. Throw in a new Kid Flash, bring back the Shade and you’ve got one of the absolute best books of ‘Rebirth’ thus far. That is why we are thrilled to bring an exclusive first look of #12, which drops on December 14th.

“SPEED OF DARKNESS” part three! Time is running out for The Flash and Kid Flash as they race to help the Shade regain control of the Shadowlands, the dimension of pure darkness from which the Shade draws his terrible power, before it reaches our world and consumes the light forever.
Thanks again to DC for the preview, and make sure to pick up the issue on Wednesday!
