Barry Allen has a friend in trouble… or so he thought. As it turns out, his buddy isn’t too bad at taking care of himself. But the adventure leads him to look at his powers a whole new way. He can move fast, that much is clear… but what about thinking fast? Very early in the run, and we already seen Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato making a clear effort to innovate with this title. Barry has one of the most potentially versatile super powers on the planet, but very few writers have really explored the potential of what a man can do with super-speed. Even Mark Waid’s legendary run, which established the Speed Force in the first place, wasn’t so much about the applications of super-speed. The idea of speeding up Barry’s brain is a clever one, and the way it’s depicted here works very well. While neither Manapul nor Buccellato have a long pedigree as writers, putting artists on the storytelling end of this comic book is really working out well, allowing them to develop innovative visuals that match the clever stories. It works very well.
