Book Review: The Flash Rebirth #1 by Joshua Williamson

The Flash: Rebirth (2016) #1Goodreads Synopsis

Spinning directly out of the epic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1, the Fastest Man Alive finds himself at the center of a DC Universe at a crossroads.

WARNING: Do NOT read this issue until after you read DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1!

My reviews for comics usually contain spoilers.

This takes place after (and before) the DC Universe: Rebirth comic but it’s best to read tht first as to avoid any and all confusion.

In this comic we see Barry Allen working on a case that is quite similar to his mom’s death. He starts seeing visions of Zoom and himself fighting Zoom. He plays this off as being part of stress related to dealing with the case.

While on a run, Barry gets another vision and soon realises it’s not a vision and by remembering Wally, he pulls him [Wally] back into reality. From here on, Barry decides to develop a plan and find out what happened and who is behind all this.

Characters: Barry was a very determined character and it seems obvious that the people he cares about are his weakness. His POV makes for an interesting read but there’s not really much to learn from a 28 page issue.

Likes: I loved the writing. Not boring, intriguing and made me want more. The art was amazing so props to Carmine Di Giandomenico. Still amazed by the colours on that streak though. I like this plot and I’m legit interested in seeing where they take this.

Overall Thoughts: I’ve only read two issues of this series so far but I’m loving how everything fits into a puzzle. I have a feeling that I’m about to get a lot deeper into the DC Universe. I’m looking forward to continuing this story in The Flash #1.
