The Flash #4

Heralded by a fantastic variant cover by Eric Basaldua, this issue of The Flash features a Rogue Profile starring Mob Rule.  If you like J.H. Williams' style in Batwoman, then you are going to love what Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato are doing here as they tell the gruesome origin of this new character.  All the stops are being pulled by this creative team in order to deliver their stories, and everything they are throwing at the walls is sticking: the flashbacks, the colors, the inner monologues, and the new concepts.  Speaking of that, the new aspect of Barry's power is already proving to be an actual problem for him, so it is pretty cool to see him struggle trying to get over that learning curve.  Being a Rogue Profile issue, our hero only makes a brief appearance, but this is not detrimental to the story by any means, as there is plenty of character development for Barry Allen.
