While I’m not all that keen on the weekly cover price of $3.99 (a price point that will likely force me to wait until a collection of sorts) I’ve been awfully impressed by everything I’ve seen in regards to DC’s Wednesday’s Comics initiative. And inevitably, every other day, some super artist/creator attached to the project releases this amazing preview art that makes the long wait I’ll have to endure seem pretty unbearable. But what can you do, life is hard like that and this Flash preview by Karl Kerschl featuring Barry Allen (promises of Iris), Grodd and a couple talking gorillas is just plain awesome, saying nothing of the retro title header! Kerschl drew a killer Flash in the pages of All Flash and this looks to exceed even that worthwhile effort. There’s a lot of storytelling in these panels, it looks like we’re all in for a real treat, and I’m glad as heck that Barry Allen is a part of it. Talk about getting back into the public consciousness…quickly.
Assuming more casual readers can get past that price tag.
