Graphic Novel Review: Flash Rebirth by Geoff Johns


 Flash Rebirth by Geoff Johns was my first foray into The Flash, a character in whom I’ve never been interested.

And I was a little blown away.

In a good way.

It’s a complex mythology, a broad universe populated by a wide variety of interconnected characters. Geoff Johns does what he did with Green Lantern: Rebirth and brings back the title’s iconic character to be front and center. He does it in a believable way, creating a slightly altered mythology that broadens what could be at stake. It introduces people like me who have never cared much about Flash, while reintroducing people who have missed Barry Allen in his long absence. It brings in the Flash’s nemesis and sheds new light on the Flash’s backstory. I don’t want to say much more, but this is a must-read for those wanting to catch up on the recent DC Events. A good chunk of it begins here.

Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, the visionaries responsible for the blockbuster GREEN LANTERN: REBIRTH and THE SINESTRO CORPS WAR, comes the start of an explosive and jaw-dropping epic that will reintroduce to Barry Allen, the modern age Flash who single-handedly birthed the Silver Age of comics! DC history will be made, and the Flash legacy will be redefined! (Via: Goodreads)
