Comic Book Review: The Flash #48 - DC Comics (2016)
Written by Robert Venditti & Van Jensen
Art by Jesus Merino
Even after Zoom has been put into Iron Heights Prison, the Flash is still a wanted man. Barry Allen has been chose by Captain Frye to be part of a task force to take down the Flash. Barry is in for a huge surprise when he finds out who is on the team.
There is a reason I buy the Flash every month and issue number 48 shows why. Robert Venditti and Van Jensen have put the Scarlet Speedster in some incredibly impossible situations. At all times, you know the Flash is the hero even if so many others have given up on him. Incorporating his biggest foes and making them the heroes has made for awesome story telling.
Issue number 48 marks the beginning of Jesus Merino on art for the Flash. I have not heard if he is the full time replacement for the series or not, but he does add an element of fun to the book.
