The Fastest Man Alive continues to move at breakneck speeds as the hero’s legacy hits a landmark 80th anniversary to be celebrated in The Flash #750 and feature comic-dom’s greatest talent!
Without a doubt, the modern Silver Age of comics owes a great deal to Barry Allen! When the Central City CSI investigator was struck by fate in the form of a lightning strike, he inherited extraordinary speed powers reminiscent of his comic book hero, The Flash! Looking to put his newfound abilities to good use, dons a red suit inspired by the Golden Age hero, and becomes the Scarlet Speedster — a Flash for a new age, the Fastest Man Alive. Since then Barry Allen has carved out a path all of his own, expanding on an 80-year legacy worth celebrating!
In this 80th Anniversary of the hero, DC Comics will pay appropriate homage to the hero who is rapidly approaching a comics milestone with the release of the momentous The Flash #750 an 80-page prestige format issue which will feature some of the greatest talent in the comics with contributions from Geoff Johns, Marv Wolfman, Francis Manapul, Rafa Sandoval, Jordi Tarragona, Stephen Segovia, David Marquez, Bryan Hitch, Riley Rossmo, Scott Kolins and Michael Moreci among many others.
The landmark issue will also feature multiple variant cover releases by some of the best artists in the business, characterizing “The Flash” through the ages. At the center of the issue will be the launch of a brand new original story and arc, “The Flash Age”, that will introduce a new threat to the fleet-footed speedster who is determined to destroy The Flash’s legacy. This is a story that has been building as Barry Allen continues to struggle with understanding the shifts in the Speed Force, but with the arrival of Paradox, everything is going to change!
Here’s a “First Look” at one of the covers for the upcoming anniversary issue of The Flash #750:
