Much of the focus on the Fastest Man Alive may be centering around the status of the CW television series and the rumored DC film, but there’s still plenty of reasons to love the comic book version of the Scarlet Speedster, The Flash. Although the brunt of the issue focuses on a mystical serial killer with connections to The Flash’s murdered mom, in issue 27, Brian Bucellato and Patrick Zircher first take us to the scene of a crime in progress, a diamond heist perpetrated by a couple of C-list villains with a decidedly Odd Couple dynamic: Chroma and Tar Pit. Can these two bumbling burglars make good their escape? Will Flash stop them dead in their tracks? Just how does the final sentence of this preview end? All of these questions and more will be answered when the book drops on Wednesday, January 29th, but until then, please enjoy this exclusive preview of The Flash #27 from DC Comics.
