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.”


I am so pumped to get this “LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE” story started, that while I waited, I only dealt with lightning themed things...I put Metallica's Ride The Lightning album on repeat, I watched my NHL - Tampa Bay Lightning 2003-2004 Stanley Cup Champions video and when they asked me what I wanted at the McDonald's Drive-Thru, I told them, "I'm gonna eat lightning, and crap thunder!"  As you can tell, June 22nd can't come quick enough!


  1. So excited for this. I haven't been this excited about anything in years now, but DC Rebirth has me feeling like I did when i was 20 and touching every girl I could :) hahaha

  2. I really dig this art, but it's probably the coloring that really sells it.*

    *Someone who knows nothing about these titles. "It look gud!"

  3. Oh ha ha. "My name is Barry Allen, and I'm the fastest man alive!" lol
