The Flash Annual #3 is confusing on a number of levels as the new creative team cement their storyline of a future version of Barry Allen deciding to return to the past and set things right. Introducing us to Wallace “Wally” R. West for the first time its obvious the character has gone through the same New 52 filter that continues to adversely effect several of DC’s once-great heroes.

Time travel and the character’s relationship with the passage of the time have long bee staples of the Flash comic storylines over the years. Beginning with something as innocuous as a new watch, The Flash‘s new writers Robert Venditti and Van Jensen begin to examine the idea for the first time in the New 52.

The Flash‘s two-issue team-up with Deadman comes a close as the Scarlet Speedster fights off the Keystone Killer who discovers the hero is the perfect new host for the evil spirit. There’s less Deadman this time around and more dancing around the subject of Barry’s true parentage until the reveal that proves the teases were just that and that there is no blood connection between Barry and his mentor Captain Frye.

Writer Brian Buccellato delves into the Flash‘s past with the discovery of grave filled with the victims of the city’s serial killer from two decades ago. Barry does a little investigating on his own and discovers the timeline and the man’s choice of victim point to what he believes may be the real killer behind his mother’s murder (which his father is still serving a jail sentence for).

Aimed more to a kid-friendly all-ages audience than the much more publicized Justice League: War release, and available only at Target (as a tie-in to the store’s JLA toy line), JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time proves to be a hell of a lot of fun. Rather than adapting an existing mini-series or comic arc (which seems all that DC has been interested in lately), Trapped in Time offers an original adventure from screenwriter Michael Ryan and director Giancarlo Volpe that’s a bit of a throwback to the old Super Friends days.

The Flash #26 kicks off a new arc with a new creative team in writer Christos Gage and artist Neil Googe. It’s going to take a little time for me to get used the drastic artist change (and I’m going to miss those amazing splash pages from Francis Manapul) but issue shows definite promise, even if it does adopt the continuous use of the Flash’s incredibly lame yellow striping on his New 52 costume.
