The Flash #12

Writers and Artists: Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato

After several years absent from the Flash mythos, Lisa Snart, now known simply as Glider, makes her swift return and she is taking charge of things. Holding her brother responsible for the still undisclosed incident that transformed several of the Rogues, Glider puts the gang back together to exact revenge on Captain Cold and in the process get the Flash in lots of trouble. In trying to bring closure to the New 52's first year of storylines, DC has put a rush on the plots of many of its titles so they end with issue #12 or the upcoming annuals; here, the editorial mandate is quite obvious with the quick reintroductions of Pied Piper, Trickster, and Mirror Master. It is fun to see all these characters popping up, but at the same time they are stolen from the elaborate debuts Cold, the Wizard, Heatwave, and Glider had. Great issue, but extremely rushed.
