An all-new creative team makes its debut to show the deadly consequences of The Flash’s speed powers. During the traumatic events of FOREVER EVIL, Central City suffered the worst that the Crime Syndicate could dish out. Now The Flash has returned to make things right, but there are limits to what even the Fastest Man Alive can do!

Next week’s Flash #27 includes a variant cover that homages Showcase #4 (the first appearance of Barry Allen), Scribblenauts style.
Flash #27 Preview and Scribblenauts Variant Cover
Nerdist has a preview of The Flash #27, the first of a three-part story by writer Brian Buccellato and artist Patrick Zircher. Pasqual Ferry provides the cover for the issue, due in stores next week.
The summary has the Flash facing “a mystical serial killer who might be responsible for his mother’s murder,” but the preview focuses on a jewelry heist by Chroma (an updated Rainbow Raider) and Tar Pit.
(For those wondering about the presence of one of the villains, remember that everything up through #29 takes place before Forever Evil.)
Also included in the preview is the Scribblenauts variant cover, a riff on the classic Showcase #4 — the first appearance of Barry Allen.

DC Comics has released a preview of Earth 2 #19, including the Scribblenauts variant cover…one which should look very familiar to Flash fans. It’s an homage to the classic Flash #123 cover, featuring Barry Allen and Jay Garrick…but this time it’s their New 52 versions as seen through the Scribblenauts style.

This Week: Forever Evil, Impulse vs. the Joker (sort of)
Forever Evil #2 is out this week, with a cover focusing on the Crime Syndicate’s evil Johnny Quick and the Teen Titans’ attempt to fight back now that the villains have taken over the world. It doesn’t look like that goes too well for the Titans.
Earth 2 #16 is out as well, closing out the war against Steppenwolf and the Hunger Dogs and revealing the identity of Brutal.
And in digital re-releases at ComiXology:
Impulse #79. This was a tie-in to the “Joker’s Last Laugh” event in which Joker thought he was dying, so he used a drug to transform villains all over the DCU into insane, smiling, “Jokerized” versions of themselves. Here, it’s an old foe of Max Mercury called Dr. Ether.

Covers: Justice League 3000 #1 & Forever Evil #2
DC has released a handful of October covers through Newsarama, including the first issue of the Giffen/DeMatteis/Maguire Justice League 3000 featuring future versions of Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash and Green Lantern; and the second issue of Forever Evil, featuring Captain Cold, Lex Luthor, Sinestro and other villains including…Batman?
The Flash of Justice League 3000 has previously been discussed; while DC isn’t revealing the identity of any of the future Leaguers yet, we do know he’s not Wally West or Lightning Lad.
As for Forever Evil, October also sees the launch of the Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion miniseries. MTV Geek unveiled the first cover and interviewed Brian Buccellato about the series last week.
