The Flash #10

Writers: Francis Manapul & Brian Buccellato
Artists: Marcus To

The Flash follows the trail of Patty Spivot to Guatemala in a stand alone story that introduces the Weather Wizard to the New 52. In this iteration, the Wizard is Marco Mardon, reluctant heir and last in the line of a powerful cartel whose emotions can control the weather itself. The mystery behind his brother's murder serves as the backdrop for this latest confrontation with the scarlet speedster. Without dragging the plot, Manapul and Buccellato bring about the answers promptly as they explore the choices Flash has made as of late. From giving up on his search for Iris who is trapped in the speed force, to making Patty believe Barry Allen is dead, his judgment is not the soundest right now, and will for sure come back to haunt him soon. Guest artist Marcus To shines with his clean artwork and expressive features. The return of a classic and long-gone villain sets the stage for the assembling of the rogues. Good issue.
