The Flash: DC Comics Set to Release Three-Issue Prequel Series to the Upcoming Film

There's a lot of excitement and hype right now to the upcoming DCEU film The Flash as it will feature Ezra Miller's first solo outing as The Flash, the return of Michael Keaton's Batman, the farewell of Ben Affleck's Batman, the debut of Sasha Calle's Supergirl, and a multiversal adventure which could potentially have DC crossovers and cameos. Now, it looks like we will find out what happened before the events of the film.

DC Comics announced that they are releasing a three-issue prequel comic series to The Flash titled The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive from writer Kenny Porter and artist Ricardo López Ortiz. The 48-page debut issue will be arriving in comic book stores on Thursday, April 26 which will feature a main cover by Max Fiumara with a variant cover by The Flash director Andy Muschietti. The second issue will be available in May which will feature art by Juan Ferreyra while the third issue will have Jason Howard providing art which will be released in July.

The synopsis of The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive follows: "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!"

It is nice that there is a three-issue prequel comic series that we can read while we're waiting for the film and it could provide a lot of vital information about the characters of The Flash and Batman leading up to the release of the film where the multiverse will get messed up and potentially change the entire course of the DCEU forever. This comic series should be a treat for fans who love both the DC films and comics.
