The Flash #13 begins the comic’s new arc “Gorilla Warfare.” With the newly reformed Rogues about to claim their first victory over the Flash all hell breaks loose as Central City is invaded by Grodd and his army of super-gorillas from Gorilla City. The scarlet speedster’s enemies have no choice but to team-up with the Flash or see their entire city laid to rubble (with them under the pile).
Part One of “Gorilla Warfare” is a hell of a lot of fun with tons of action as Central City’s hero and a collection of its most notorious enemies fight an army of attacking super-apes. The dialogue does a good job showcasing the incredulity of everyone involved with the situation they find themselves in, and once again the comic’s art by writer/artist Francis Manapul is terrific.
I don’t know if I’m ready to see the Flash battle Grodd for the next three months, but this issue certainly helps sell me on the idea of the multi-issue arc involving Grodd, the Rogues, and my favorite speedster. Worth a look.
