It’s the Fastest Man Alive as The Flash Gets a Movie Prelude
This April, writer Kenny Porter and artist Ricardo López Ortiz combine the worlds of movies and comic books in The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive, a three-issue monthly series that leads up to The Flash, the hotly anticipated action adventure from Warner Bros. Pictures.
In The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive, Barry Allen’s world-saving adventure with the Justice League has driven Central City’s favorite son to become a truly skilled and inspirational Super Hero. But when a new threat by the name of Girder emerges in Central City, Barry turns to Batman for advice on training to master his powers. Under the Dark Knight’s tutelage, The Fastest Man Alive will have to find a way to defeat this metallic menace or be crushed by Girder’s strength!
