Welcome back for another installment of Preview Monday! This week, we’re giving you exclusive first looks at THE FLASH #26 and FABLES #136.

First, in THE FLASH #26, Barry Allen is hot on the tail of Spitfire after investigating the death of his mentor, Dr. Carlson. But to catch the villain responsible, The Flash must figure out how to use his powers in the one place where they do him little good: the sky! Spitfire is sure to escape unless The Flash can go airborne! A special standalone issue, THE FLASH #26, written by Christos N. Gage and illustrated by Neil Googe, will be available in stores on December 31.

Then, it’s “A Day At The Lake” in FABLES #136. Rose Red is choosing her second-chance champions—including one ragged and mysterious piece of work from who-knows-where? And in dismissing the defeated claimants, Red realizes there’s more to her fable than she ever knew. What mysterious powers lurk in Red’s past and who in Fabletown has the answers she needs? Pick up your copy of FABLES #136, Part Five of “Camelot”, written by Bill Willingham and illustrated by Mark Buckingham and Russell Braun, when it hits shelves on December 31.
