Story 1 - It’s the Flash Parade and everyone’s so excited...except for Barry Allen. This is his least favorite day of the year. Can a superhero showdown with the  villainous Tar Pit show Barry the best side of the parade or will the day be ruined? Story 2 - Justice is finally served as Captain Cold’s thrown behind bars for the murder of a group of drug dealers, only problem is the evidence isn’t adding up. Will The Flash stand by as an innocent man is arrested or will he look the other way to keep this known criminal off the street?!

    Having grown up on a lot of standalone Flash stories back in the day, pre-Crisis, there's a lot of simple enjoyments to be had with both of these stories as either could have been told in some form back then. They're timeless, in a way, which is both good and bad depending on the content. I really liked the first one for the way that it dealt with the issues of Tarpit and the citizenry while the second one is far too real-world at the moment and just dredges up all sorts of issues that a lot of superheroes would have to confront in some problematic ways. Both work familiar ideas but they're executed well with solid artwork, making for a good experience. Read Full Review
