The Flash #28

After unintentionally releasing a spirit of vengeance and murder from his prison, the Flash teams up with Deadman to fight the Keystone Killer who plans on returning to his murderous ways by hunting down the surviving descendants of his original victims.

Offering no closure for Barry as the Fastest Man Alive learns the vengeful spirit had no hand in his mother's death, the odd ghost story does allow for an unique team-up of heroes we normally wouldn't see together. And although I like my Boston Brand a little more whimsical, the character is put to good use here (even if it feels like the storyline is being unnecessarily drawn out for one more month).

The issue's backstory (without an ounce of subtlety) continues to suggest that the man Barry knows as his father isn't who he thinks he is (in more ways than one). Patrick Zircher's art is okay but doesn't do much to add any flair to the storyline. For fans.
