Description

As Barry Allen, a.k.a. the Flash, learns more about the source that fuels his incredible powers, this same Speed Force that flows through him is unleashed all over Central City, striking cops, criminals and ordinary civilians alike, it’s up to the Flash to train this new wave of speedsters to use their amazing abilities wisely!

But while some may become his partners in crime-fighting—forming a true “Speed Force”—others will use their godlike powers for a more sinister purpose. And the Flash is about to learn that there’s some evil even he can’t outrun…
 
Meanwhile, the Scarlet Speedster is also discovering secrets about his past beyond anything he’d ever dreamed—how he created a Flashpoint that changed history and helped create a new world, watched over by forces unknown.

The race is on as writer Joshua Williamson (Justice League vs. Suicide Squad) and artist Carmine di Giandomenico (All New X-Factor) present The Flash Vol. 1: Lightning Strikes Twice—the starting line of a bold new era for the Scarlet Speedster, bursting from the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event! Collects The Flash: Rebirth #1 and The Flash #1-8. A great new jumping-on point is here in The Flash Vol. 1: Lightning Strikes Twice, a part of the critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth!
