The comics, The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive, will see its first issue released on April 26, 2022, with the two remaining issues releasing in a monthly format. The prelude series will be written by Kenny Porter, with art from artist Ricardo López Ortiz. A three-issue collection of the series will also release in October, just a month ahead of when the film is set to release in theaters.

The cover for the first issue (which can you see below) is drawn by Max Fiumara, with a variant cover also available from the director of The Flash, Andy Muschietti. Issue #2 of the comic series will feature art by Juan Ferreyra, with Jason Howard working on art for the final issue in July.

The Flash: Fastest Man Alive will focus on Barry Allen as he deals with the emergence of Girder, a new threat to Central City. In the series, Allen will turn to Batman for advice on how he can harness some of his powers, and also try and figure out how to stop the latest threat to his city.

The long-in-development The Flash movie sees the return of Ezra Miller as the DCEU’s Scarlet Speedster/Barry Allen, who he first portrayed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeJustice League, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. He also played the hero in a cameo appearance on The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, where he got to meet Grant Gustin’s version of Barry Allen.

Joining Miller are Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Sasha Calle as Supergirl, and Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, along with Keaton and Ben Affleck who are reprising their respective versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman for the film.
