The Flash #2

Issue #2 of The Flash is titled "Think Fast" and magistrally put together by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato.  You can tell these two guys are having fun with this book, and it must be due to the fact that they have absolute creative control over it.  This "getting inside The Flash's mind" approach is an ambicious new concept, and I cannot even begin to imagine how complicated it is to come up with ideas to implement it.  All the choices, all the decisions, and consequences of every action are considered by Barry Allen in just seconds or less, and beutifully translated into pencils and colors by this creative team in sequences full of movement and dynamism.  The flashback scenes are breathtaking, and along with the events of the present, they move forward at a steady pace.  Grab on to your chairs for issue #3!
