A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments - Day 157

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here's the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today, we look at the turning point in Mark Waid's "The Return of Barry Allen" storyline from Flash.


In Flash #75, by Mark Waid and Greg Larocque, the returned Barry Allen is fighting crime with Wally West and Jay Garrick (the third and first Flash, respectively). Things are going well.

Then the villainous group known as the Combine attacked.

Things did not go so well for Wally after this point...

The whole thing was handled so well, from Larcoque's art to Waid's character work (how Wally reacts is awesome) but most of all, to the brilliant plot twist that works as one hell of a cliffhanger.
