This month, DC Comics is reintroducing one of their most important characters, The Flash-also nicknamed The Scarlet Speedster! Get in on the excitement with these two fantastic items:
- The first issue of the new miniseries The Flash: Rebirth
- The trade paperback The Flash: Terminal Velocity, signed by the late, great artist Mike Wieringo!
The Flash: Rebirth #1. FIRST ISSUE! Written by Geoff Johns; Art and covers by Ethan Van Sciver. Through the decades, many heroes have taken the mantle of The Flash, but they all ride the lightning that crackles in the wake of the greatest hero the DC Universe has ever known, the man who sacrificed himself to save the Multiverse: Barry Allen!
Following the events of FINAL CRISIS, Barry has beaten death and returned to a fast-paced world that a man out of time wouldn't recognize. Or is it a world that is only just now catching up? All the running he's done before was just a warmup for the high-speed race that he and every other Flash must now run, because even though one speedster might have beaten death, another has just turned up dead! From Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, the visionaries responsible for the blockbuster GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH and THE SINESTRO CORPS WAR, comes the start of an explosive and jaw-dropping epic that will reintroduce to the modern age the hero who single-handedly birthed the Silver Age of comics! DC history will be made, and the Flash legacy will be redefined!
The Flash: Terminal Velocity trade paperback, signed by the late, great artist Mike Wieringo. Written by Mark Waid; Art by Mike Wieringo, Salvador Larroca, Oscar Jiminez, Carlos Pacheco Jose Marzan Jr., and Sergio Borjas; Cover by Wieringo and Marzan, Jr.
The runaway best-selling storyline that propelled DC's Scarlet Speedster to new heights of excitement is now available in one sensational volume. THE FLASH: TERMINAL VELOCITY trade paperback reprints Wally West's most astounding adventure from issues #0 and #95-100, redefining the true nature of the Flash and super-speedsters throughout the DC Universe.
As a result of the events in ZERO HOUR, Flash achieved the speed of light, and in so doing was flung headlong on an odyssey of self-rediscovery. He encountered, for the first time, the mysterious force on the Other Side of Light, a strange energy that in time would cause him to transcend all previous limits, transforming Wally West into the quintessential fusion of humanity and velocity.
Written by fan-favorite writer Mark Waid (IMPULSE, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES, UNDERWORLD UNLEASHED), with the sensational art of Mike Wieringo, Salvador Larroca, Oscar Jiminez, Carlos Pacheco Jose Marzan Jr., and Sergio Borjas, TERMINAL VELOCITY is a fast-paced story driven as much by its well-developed characters and shocking revelations as it is by the explosive action in every chapter. Co-starring Impulse, Max Mercury, Johnny and Jesse Quick, and the Golden Age Flash, TERMINAL VELOCITY has everything you're looking for: a great story with great art, uniting DC's rich history with its current continuity. The collection also includes an introduction by Waid and editor Brian Augustyn, and a new cover by Wieringo and Marzan, Jr.
