The Flash #23

As the Flash battles the New 52's version of the Reverse-Flash, Iris West will make a startling discovery about the man behind the killings of those tied to the Speed Force and her connection to him. I have mixed feelings about our new Reverse-Flash, however, the reveal that the killer is Daniel West leaves Professor Zoom (and kick-ass yellow costume) safe from the New 52 reboot, at least for now.

After teasing us for months ago an altercation between the two speedsters, The Flash #23 with several panels of the action and the unfortunate fallout from Iris' discovery. There is also a nice B-story centered around Barry missing dinner with Patty's parents and the cost of living the super-hero life as even the Fastest Man Alive can't be everywhere at once.

The reveal of Daniel West was unexpected, and we'll have to wait until at least next month to discover his story. I'm also wondering if this isn't the first step to introduce another member of the West family. Worth a look.
