He's used his incredible powers to bring peace to the Gem Cities, but Barry Allen--a.k.a. the Flash--is far from at peace himself. Years ago, his mother was murdered, and his father Henry was convicted of the crime. Believing him innocent, Barry has spent his life hoping to catch the real killer and searching for the evidence that could set his father free.

Now, finally, Barry has been able to identify the murderer, a mysterious stranger called Eobard Thawne. But soon the Flash will know his nemesis by another name entirely:

I think my problem is that I am still familiar with the old Flash continuity and find this New 52 stuff a bit confusing. My recollection of Prof Zoom is quite different than this version. That aside, the art is obviously the work of a hard working and creative craftsman. Visually, this volume is dynamic. The story isn't bad either if you ignore my earlier complaint about keeping track of continuity.

An enemy from the future who can move through time, and who has connections to Barry Allen's family tragedy, takes center stage in this volume, as Professor Zoom, an evil counterpart to the speedster, assembles a group of people linked to the Speed Force to break the Flash once and for all. Despite the fact that the leading character continues to be dull as tepid dishwater, the story flows quite well, and the art suits the narrative.
