The takeover of Earth continues as the new claimant to the name of Flash finds himself transformed into...the Fastest Ape Alive! But surely the other masters of the Speed Force will help set him right, right? Well, not if you're thinking of the just-transformed Jape Garrick, Max Monk-ury and Chimpulse.
The BLOODLINES Summer Annual crossover continues from BATMAN SHADOW OF THE BAT Annual (1993) #1. When undercover agent Nick Kelly goes inside Central City's mob, the last thing he expects is to be attacked by hideous extraterrestrial parasites. And while the mob kingpin is horribly slaughtered, Nick miraculously survives the alien assault and discovers he now has the powers of a dark, mysterious predator himself, becoming the New Blood--Argus. Together with The Flash, Argus sets out to destroy the mob and the alien menace once and for all. BLOODLINES continues in NEW TEEN TITANS (1984) Annual #9.
Continuing the saga of ARMAGEDDON 2001. Waverider looks into the possible future of the Fastest Man Alive and finds that ten years in the future, Wally West has retired from his life as Flash... until he's forced to once again don the scarlet costume and survive attacks by a barrage of foes both old and new to save the life of his super-fast son.
