The Flash #1

Barry Allen is the one and only Flash in the DCnU courtesy of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.  We see the world through Barry Allen's eyes as he tries to solve a mysterious crime and help an old friend with a secret.  This rejuvenated version of Barry is just what we needed to see with urgency; his final incarnation before the relaunch did not seem to fit with the rest of his world.  This new Flash comes without all the baggage, and dare I say without his own ghost haunting him and the readers.  It is clear that Francis Manapul enjoyed his time during the Flash run he shared with Geoff Johns, but now he is the man in charge and is truly letting his imagination soar.  His art is beautiful; the pencil-like finishes take the art to a whole new level.  Buccellato's colors give the story this "old comic" feeling I just love.  I am very excited about this title and I can't wait for what comes next.
