THE FLASH #1

(W) Joshua Williamson (A) Carmine Di Giandomenico (CA) Dave Johnson

"LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE" chapter one

A new storm brews over Central City and disproves the old adage about lightning never, well...you know. Just as Barry begins to feel overwhelmed fighting crime, a new speedster debuts-but just where did this amazing new friend come from?

FLASH FACT: "2016 is the 60th anniversary of Barry Allen becoming The Flash and it's a privilege to be a part of it," says writer Joshua Williamson. "'The Return of Barry Allen' in FLASH #79 [1993] is one of my favorite comics of all time. It's where I became a Flash fan for life."

So is his foot. And that's in the back. I don't like this cover.

The design for Godspeed looks spectacular. Hope he's just as awesome character.

Agreed. Probably my favourite speedster design wise (and there's a lot of them).

Really unsure what to make of this upcoming arc. I've got Reverse Flash fatigue, Godspeed will be the fourth evil speedster in the New52 unless I've forgotten someone. Daniel West, Future Barry and Eobard Thawne. The TV show is also relying too much on other speedsters for stories.

I will buy this, because it's Flash, but I can't foresee this arc attracting any new readers.

Hopefully the big return of that character in Rebirth will make things interesting. Even then, I imagine that this arc will overload us with speedsters, when there are already some great speedsters from DC's past that they could use instead. We're seeing Kid Flash again, but give us John Fox or someone else like that.

Excited to see how both Wally's are used in this and curious about the Speed force storm thing though I prefer the idea that the speed force can give a variety of powers and not just limiting it to speed.

Happy 60 to Barry though!

Godspeed is exactly why I'm gonna pick up The Flash. I mean, look at the sumbitch; why do villains have the best designs? :/
