PREVIEW: The Flash: Rebirth #1 – The Flash Runs Into A New Era For DC Comics

By Comments

The Flash races into the DC Rebirth era with a one-shot story which intends to bring The Flash back into the forefront of the DC Universe. Written by Joshua Williamson and art by Carmine Di Giandomenico, The Flash: Rebirth #1 will give readers a taste of what’s to come in the ongoing Flash series as well as continue threads from the massive DC Universe: Rebirth one-shot. This includes a much-loved character that recently in the pages of the huge one-shot.

I’m trying to be coy about who this is for those who haven’t read DC Universe: Rebirth as I don’t want to reveal spoilers. If you’ve read it you’ll know who I’m talking about. If not, go and read that before you read The Flash: Rebirth #1. This will be one of those issues that you’ll get much more out of it if you’ve read it. Don’t stress if you can’t get your hands on it as The Flash #1 later in the month will be another clean start.

As I mentioned earlier, this issue will continue on from the DC Universe: Rebirth one-shot. From the little that DC has revealed this issue should be more about Barry Allen and his relationship with this other person and how he is situated in the greater DC Universe. This should bode well for the ongoing series as relationship building will be a big part of the series going forward.

Exploring this rekindled relationship will be writer Joshua Williamson. Williamson is an accomplished writer in the creator-owned space with well regarded series over at Image Comics such as Nailbiter, Ghosted and Birthright. With this experience, DC Comics signed him up as an exclusive creator so we should get some solid Flash stories for some time to come.

Joining Williamson is Italian artist Carmine Di Giandomenico, who has done a string of Marvel projects including All-New X-Factor and Spider-Man: Noir. With his art he will bring some dynamic action to the series and show some interesting visual representations of speed.

The Flash: Rebirth #1 is available at all good comic book stores and digitally from June 8th.

  • I’ll be honest. Kind of disappointed at this Flash Rebirth issue. It didn’t really advance the story of DC Comics Rebirth. In fact, it kind of ended off at the same place. I’m still really excited to see where this story goes though. But this particular issue seemed kind of unnecessary.
