And Then I Read: THE FLASH #1

I’m on the fence about this one. There’s nothing I dislike about it, but it’s a rehash of Flash’s origin yet again (seems like about the sixth time in the last few years) with some changes that pull in elements from the TV show like the “Jitters” coffee shop, but many other elements are not like the show. We have some new characters in the Central City police force that seem promising, so I’ll stick with it for a while. Much of this issue feels kind of like the dress rehearsal of a play I’ve seen too many times. The art by Carmine Di Giandomenico has a loose design-ish feel that suggests advertising storyboards to me. I like the style and the design both, but at times, particularly in small figures, it loses focus. Okay, let’s see where it goes.

Mildly recommended.
