The monthly Flash series has been playing a huge role as a tie-in to the Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths event, with Wally West and the Flash Family having just set Barry Allen free of Pariah's "happiness prison" planet, which appears will set in motion of the revival of the remainder of the believed-dead Justice League and the turning point of the DC event.

But September's The Flash #786 by writer Jeremy Adams, artists Amancay Nahuelpan, Jeromy Cox, and Peter Pantazis, and letterer Justin Birch deals with the return of Wally and co. to Earth and the Flash's family response to keeping the Earth protected from Deathstroke's army. 

Right before they arrive, the Titans, the Justice Society of America (who will soon be getting their own ongoing series), and the Bat Family including Robin, all three Batgirls, and the Signal, gather to get their assignments from Donna Troy.

North and South America seems like quite a large land mass for a bunch of street-level heroes who at best get around by Batplane, but hey, comic books!

While some obviously series business is going down, the pages previewed also take some personal moments for characters to catch up, and for Wally's daughter Iris to stare down Damian Wayne, who doesn't appear to have gone demonic rogue yet as he has in Mark Waid's just-launched Batman vs. Robin event limited series. 

The Flash #786 features a cover by Taurin Clarke and variant covers by George Kambadais, Daniel Sampere and Alejandro Sanchez, and Kim Jacinto.

Speaking of the Flash family, here's Newsarama's look at the best DC speedsters.

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
