it was ok

Originally published in the 100-page Giant Wal-mart comics, this look at the Flash finds the Flash dealing with a mysterious threat involving his rogues being forced to fight him. Then there's one shot with King Shark, and then we get another multi-part story with the Flash.

Unlike with Tom King's Superman, or J. Michael Bendis' Batman, Simone makes clear that this is an entirely different take on Barry as it does several things that are different from current DC Comics continuity.

The art is good throughout. The story, though, doesn't show much understanding of the Flash or his rogues and generally seemed a bit tedious, although I will admit to liking the finale of the second story.

Overall, this isn't the worst thing I've read this year, but it's a lackluster release that's not as good as the Superman or Batman books.
