Exclusive Preview: THE FLASH ANNUAL #2

How did Barry Allen and Hal Jordan first meet? And why is Barry wearing a Green Lantern ring? We'll find out in this issue.

As much as I enjoyed the first annual for THE FLASH, being a continuation from a story running in the regular series was a slight problem. Annuals should be self-contained, yet important to continuity, stories. That's exactly what we're getting in THE FLASH ANNUAL #2.

When the New 52 started in JUSTICE LEAGUE #1, we saw that Barry Allen, the Flash, and Hal Jordan, Green Lantern, already knew each other. We've been left wondering what their relationship was and how they met in this continuity. Now Brian Buccellato is telling the story of that meeting.

Find out how The Flash and Green Lantern first met when a case they teamed up together to solve years ago rears its head again in the present! It involves a foe neither of them can defeat on their own, and they might not have much luck together either! The outcome of this will affect The Flash for years to come… Plus, a backup story by Nicole Dubuc (the Young Justice cartoon)!
