And Then I Read: THE FLASH #15

I’m enjoying this return of THE FLASH to characters I loved in my youth, the Rogues Gallery,  particularly enjoying the retro covers by Dave Johnson with the Silver Age logo by Ira Schnapp and cover copy in his style. (I think I could have done it better, but no one asked…)

The Rogues have lured Barry Allen to the small European country of Corto Maltese, itself a comics insider joke, look it up. There they are robbing a museum of a priceless gold statue, and The Flash is determined to stop them, even so far away from his home base. As one might expect, the Rogues are tricky, and things in Corto Maltese might not be what they seem. Nicely written by Joshua Williamson, well drawn by Carmine De Giandomenico, well colored by Ivan Plascencia and expertly lettered by Steve Wands.

Recommended.
