The Flash #3

The new take on the fastest man alive continues in "Lights Out" by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. As Flash tries to prevent disaster all around Central City, we learn more about Barry's friend Manuel Lago and the science behind Mob Rule.  After last month's unusual display of power, Flash uses his more known abilities to help those affected by the event that knocked out the power all over the city.  At the end of the issue there is this really cool moment that made me think of the old Wonder Woman show when Lynda Carter would spin around to transform; only here, what we see is an explosion of thoughts in Barry's head, right before the intriguing cliffhanger.  Manapul and Buccellato continue to thrive not only in their writing, but also in their incomparable art; these two guys are the perfect formula for this book.
