Comic Book Review: The Flash #49 - DC Comics (2016)

"New Blood"

Written by Robert Venditti & Van Jensen
Art by Philippe Briones

The Rogues are on the police task force to bring in the Flash.  Forensic specialist Barry Allen is also on the task force and must analyze the blood of the Flash.  The Trickster, a newcomer to the Rogues, appears to have more going on than just helping his fellow teammates.  Wally West is in school but he is dealing with some physical changes that he can't quite explain.

The Flash being hunted by the police has become a better story line than I had originally imagined.  Seeing Barry wrestle with right and wrong and how he should handle being on a task force to hunt himself is fantastic story telling by Robert Venditti and  Van Jensen.

Philippe Briones is in charge of the art for this issue and does well.  I don't know if he is the long term artist as last month was someone else and this is all after the super group of Brett Booth, Norm Rapmund and Andrew Dalhouse have moved on to other projects.

The Flash is definitely one of the comic books I look forward to each month.  The writers are crafting such excellent stories and it's a lot of fun with each issue.  I'm sure there has to be something big planned for the next issue as that is number fifty!
