Flash I6Fanboy Comics Contributor Jason Enright brings you his top comic book picks for the week.

Flash #6
by Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato

The second arc of the Flash starts here as Buccellato and Manapul reintroduce Captain Cold, one of Flash’s oldest enemies who gets a new 52 update…and he’s deadlier than ever. I have to admit, I never used to be a Flash fan. I figured he was a dude who ran fast, and his bad guys always seemed dorky. Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul have proven me wrong with every issue of this book, and, nowadays, Flash is one of the books I’m most excited to read each week. The Flash possesses an amazing super power: he can tap into the speed force and run faster, punch faster, and even think faster, but the writers have introduced a very interesting limitation for the Flash. The use of his powers could possibly be ripping time and space apart at the seams. Before Flash can even figure out what to do about this problem, his old nemesis Captain Cold returns with a vengeance. The most interesting thing about this series is that both creators serve as artists and writers in this book. No other creative team has ever had such amazing synergy between the art and the story. Every image in Flash is full of vibrant color and a sense of movement, and the layouts are beautiful and always unique. If you missed the first five issues, this is a great jumping on point, so go pick it up because obviously it’s going to go very fast.

Dr. Alec Holland was a botanist working on the bio-restorative formula when an accident occurred in his lab and he was killed.  Now, he's come back from the dead years later, with memories of being some kind of monster, a Swamp Thing, but before he can make sense of all of this, the plants start to speak to him again, telling him of his destiny as the Protector of the Green.

Concept:

Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City’s police commissioner, joined forces with Batman several years ago as a reluctant partner before being shot by the Joker, paralyzing her and confining her to a wheelchair.  Now, three years later, a medical miracle has allowed Barbara to walk again…and to take up the mantle of Batgirl once more.  Barbara readjusts to her former life with the skills of an intelligent woman with an eidetic memory and a desire to do justice, not to mention a need to prove to herself that she’s the right girl for the Bat costume.
