DC Comics has released a sneak peek of the second issue of Flash: Rebirth, and you can see it all after the jump.

Flash: Rebirth #2
Written by Geoff Johns; Art by Ethan Van Sciver; Covers by Ethan Van Sciver

What’s happened to the Speed Force? One of the world’s most powerful speedsters is dead, and Barry Allen must discover who – or what – is responsible! But the reborn Barry is a man haunted by a dark secret in his past. A secret that drives him to push far beyond his limits. A burden that, if he’s not careful, could send him right back into oblivion! Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver’s reinvention of the Scarlet Speedster picks up the pace – we dare you to keep up!

The issues arrives May 6, 2009

    Hey, I just used the new page preview thing-really nice, saves having to click around and tryto figure out how to make the whole page view, etc. Thanks for the upgrade?

    Well it is hit and miss in how it can be used. For example, when it is a single issue like this one, it can be used effectively, but when I’m trying to show multiple issue sneak peeks, I have to go back to the old way of you have to click on each thumbnail, as the “upgrade” isn’t quite working the way I want it to… yet…

    Johns makes up for bringing back Barry by bringing back Savitar – a sentimental favorite of mine because 1. he was the villain in one of the first DC comics I ever read and 2. he’s a cool character who deserves a second shot at villainy. Certainly more interesting than Zoom.

    However, the last page brings in my least favorite aspect of Johns’ writing – using an arbitrary trauma to alter a character so that Johns can write them however he pleases, ignoring their previous behavior in the service of “character development.” Not a bad thing per se, but Johns does it so often and in such a jarring manner that I’ve come to dislike it under his pen.

    So Savitar is the red-shirt of the speedsters, only they all wear red shirts so he needs to wear something different so we can pick out Who’s Gonna Die off the wall of cave paintings. Excellent! Also glad to see Johns is preserving Barry’s subtitle of Captain Obvious.
