Since the launch of his twice-monthly "Rebirth" series, the Flash has had his work cut out for him. The "Flash" series from writer Joshua Williamson and artist Carmine Di Giandomenico has put Barry Allen up against a whole city full of speedsters -- some good, and some bad. The opening arc "Lightning Strikes Twice" continues into August with "The Flash" #4 and #5, and DC has given CBR the exclusive first look at the covers for #5.
The cover for "The Flash" #5 comes from series artist Carmine Di Giandomenico and features the Flash stopped in his tracks and down on his knees. The variant cover from Dave Johnson features the opposite -- a highly kinetic Flash racing to catch some of his own lightning in a jar.
"The Flash" #5 arrives in August.
