Présentation de l'éditeur
The Fastest Man Alive returns to his own monthly series as part of the DC Comics—The New 52 event with the writer/artist team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. The Flash knows he can't be everywhere at once, but he has seemingly met his match when he faces DC Comic' hottest new Super Villain, Mob Rule, who really can be everywhere at once!
As Mob Rule wages a campaign of crime across Central City, including an electromagnetic blast that plunges the city into darkness, The Flash learns the the only way he can capture Mob Rule and save Central City is to learn how to make his brain function even faster than before—but as much as it helps him, it also comes with a steep price.
This volume collects issues 1-8 of the monthly series.

Au niveau du scénario, c'est aussi super. Et c'est pas mal d'apprécier sur la longueur : les mêmes auteurs ont écris 3 tomes.
Je recommande, cette édition permet de tout lire à la suite, et c'est vraiment appréciable. Le format souple est agréable et économique, pas besoin de payer plus.

My feelings after reading are certainly a little mixed. On one hand, this was an action packed collection of issues which are lovingly rendered by some immensely gifted artists. On another hand, it's a narrative that isn't quite flat, but also isn't as approachable as DC Comics would lead you to believe. See although this is Volume 1 of this version of the character, it's not necessarily the beginning of the story. The Flash has already established himself as a hero, loved by many, but not trusted by others. All of the characters certainly get a proper introduction, from Barry Allen's (The Flash's) cute police girlfriend, Patty Spivot, to the icy Captain Cold. Despite everything being presented as fresh and new, I definitely got the sense that DC was trying extremely hard not to alienate or bore their current fan base. Some characters, like Patty Spivot, definitely feel like they are worked into the story in a seamless manner, but entrances for characters like Captain Cold are a bit more forced. This largely comes from the fact that some of these characters have history with the Flash by this point - a history that I as a reader am well informed of, but this is a case where they tell me rather than show me that Flash and Cold are old rivals. Now, yes I know who Captain Cold is from the show, but I wanted to get to know him in THIS world and have him (as well as others like Iris West) feel a bit more fleshed out. Ultimately I just felt like I was trying to catch up with the story even though this is technically the beginning. I liked that there wasn't a tedious origin story, but there is definitely a way that they could have introduced things with a bit more grace.
I mentioned before that this is an action-packed storyline and I don't throw that term around lightly. The events in this story are much larger than life and the writers waste no time in tossing The Flash into a city-wide catastrophe. At first, it feels rather hectic, but the strong visuals make it all much easier to swallow and as the issues progress, things start to connect in a way that feels way less random. In fact, by the end of this volume, the story glides along at a much smoother pace and I found myself enjoying things a lot more once I had built up a bit more context from earlier issues. There are also some very cool antagonists who I have never heard of before. I'm not sure if they are new to The New 52 or just new to me, but they are pretty great in any case. One shows up at the end, so I won't mention them, but Mob Rule is featured in the majority of the volume and is a very compelling antagonist indeed. I felt like "his" arc was much more gracefully handled than any of the other villains in that his history with The Flash is shown to readers in the form of flashbacks. When everything felt chaotic and confusing, it was this character's development that held my attention through the first half of the issue.
By the end of this, I definitely warmed up to The Flash in his New 52 iteration. I wasn't really sold on any of it until much later in the volume, but really do think this holds some promise despite my lower rating. I was even a bit torn in giving it a 3 because by the end I felt like it was more of a 4, but since I did have some trouble with it at the onset and think that things can get a lot better I'm leaving this as sort of a fat 3 (not to be mistaken for a 3.5). One other gripe I had with this had to do with the formatting for the digital edition. There were a bunch of two-page spreads that just look goofy on Kindle (not that I'm a huge fan of them in print either) and not all of the pop-up pannels were particularly well done. There were numerous times where text was cut off or part of the image was cut out and was just a bit of a choppy and unprofessional experience overall. It's not awful, but the publisher CERTAINLY could have put a bit more effort into digitizing this volume. I'm certainly tempted to move onto the next volume which will hopefully continue in the direction that Volume 1 left off in.
I was confused, at first. But like most of the New 52, they don't start with an origin story. They put you in the middle of their "Super Hero Career" and it takes a few comics to fully understand everything, and as confusing as the Flash can be... they did their best to explain his powers. I didn't mind it, it was actually easier to read than I anticipated.
I did enjoy it, and will probably purchase volume two at some point.
I don't know how it is to old Flash fans, but as a new Flash reader I enjoyed the book. I enjoyed Captain Cold, I enjoyed Mob Rule, and I'm looking forward to Gorilla Grodd.
If you've never read Flash and wanted to start but were afraid of "getting lost" in old story lines or being confused... try this one out! It's the whole point of The New 52, afterall, and I highly suggest you start.
If you're thinking about buying this book, do yourself a favor and buy a hard copy. The kindle version has many issues that make it difficult to read. One issue is that the feature that lets you double click on a single comic frame to zoom in wasn't done well. There are several pages that were skipped, making it impossible to zoom in unless you're reading it on the iPhone version of the Kindle app. On pages where you can zoom in on specific frames, the text in speech and thought bubbles is cut off, usually at the bottom, so you have to zoom out in order to read the entire bubble. Attached is a screen shot of the problem I'm describing.
Maybe Amazon will read my review and correct these issues. It should be possible, and I don't see how I can be the only person to notice them or complain about them. If they do fix these problems, I will happily update my review to reflect that.
Pair that with Brian Buccellato's writing and this book is a real winner.
Admittedly, for The Flash purist this book may be a little hard to take as it is a reinventing of the character, and while many of the classic characters are present their relationships to one another are different. Personally, I don't have any issue with this as I enjoy seeing new writer/artist put their own spin on the mythos of classic characters such as The Flash. When executed well, as it's done here, it keeps the characters fresh and relevant.
Incidentally, if you've never read or heard of The Flash before or are new to his comics this is an excellent jumping on point and I would encourage you to pick this up. It won't disappoint.
