My GOD. The story is a little trite (and where’s the Rogue’s Gallery?) but that doesn’t matter because it’s all about the art. Francis Manapul’s art is easily the best that I’ve seen in the New 52. Manapul’s elevated the onomatopeia to an art form. The Flash is sleek and feels like he’s going fast all the time. There’s a scene where Flash’s costume wraps around him which totally justifies the new Jim Lee seams on his costume.
This is, by far, my favorite of the New 52.
