Blackest Night: The Flash #2

Kollins' art is superb, Johns' story goes beyond the formula for a very good "Flash" tie-in to "Blackest Night."

Remember that one-off issue Joe Casey wrote in October that was followed by three unrelated issues? Yeah, this one picks up from there and also ties into “Our Worlds at War.” Eight years later? What?
