"Fear" redefines the connection between Flash and Gorilla City, and serves as the new origin for classic rogue Grodd. Manapul and Buccellato make their main character and the Speed Force responsible for major events like the birth of Turbine, the rise of Gorilla City, and the fall of the Mayan empire; slowly turning the fastest man alive into a paradox of sorts.

The subplot involving Director Singh and Hartley Rathaway provides a realistic take on a topic that is becoming quite common in comics nowadays, and I can't wait to see the role Pied Piper -Rathaway's alter ego- has played in the DCnU, since it is established that he's been around for a while. The story ends awkwardly with Barry back in Central City, without any concern for Iris West -which could be the result of a prior development in the story. The art, as always, is catchy and appealing, so all is forgiven.
