Even with Batman, Flash and Watchmen teasers on my mind, The Flash #15 from Joshua Williamson, Carmine Di Giandomenico and its reloaded Rogues in not to be overlooked.
Seriously, with all the hype surrounding stories that aren't currently on news stands, comic shops or wherever, Williamson and Di Giandomenico delivered one hell of a must-grab issue for Flash fans.
Barry Allen finds himself chasing the reloaded Rogues around the damn globe, but will still appeal to traditional and new-school fans alike. This is what Williamson has impressed with during his run on The Flash the most; his ability to take a tried and true formula and bend it to fit his style, tone and the direction he wants to take his story.
Having the amazingly underrated Di Giandomenico on art certainly does not hurt, as these two just work together. There's nothing wrong with a duo that meshes well together and I think the Tom King and Mitch Gerads path is one to follow.
Di Giandomenico's art screams of frenetic, always moving energy, and that fits with Williamson's storytelling structure as he keeps the story flowing at his own pace.
Without spoiling too much, issue No. 15 of The Flash in DC Comics' Rebirth has Barry chasing Captain Cold, Mirror Master, Golden Glider, Weather Wizard and Heat Wave in a classic robbery tale.
The cat-and-mouse games between the good and bad, allow for the Mirror Master to come out and shine in this issue. Seriously, the Mirror Master shining -- no pun intended -- is exactly what I love about Rebirth.
DC isn't reinventing the wheel, they're just reinventing how to use each respective spoke.
Review 9/10: Even as many looked at this issue as a filler until we get to that juicy DC, Batman, Flash and Watchmen stuff, Joshua Williamson and Carmine Di Giandomenico show why they're one hell of a compatible duo.
