'The Flash, Volume 2: Speed of Darkness' isn't a bad bit of storytelling. It's also a fairly accessible title for new readers to jump into, unlike some of the other Rebirth titles I've read.

There is a new Kid Flash and his name is Wally West. He even meets his older namesake at some point in the book. Wally's mentor is The Flash, but he doesn't know who the Flash is, and that causes him to be distrustful. In an effort to prove himself capable, Wally gets in a bit of trouble with The Shade.

There is also a Christmas story where Wally handles things in Central City so that Barry and Iris can go on an uninterrupted date. Whether that leads anywhere, only time will tell.

I liked the story by Joshua Williamson. The art holds up the story nicely. I don't mind this new Kid Flash, but I hope future volumes are more about The Flash himself.

I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
