QUOTE: "Do you not long for the dance, oh human? The endless dance of hunter and prey? Don't you long for the contest of sinew and muscle? Don't you long for the song of talon and fang?" —Grodd

SUMMARY:  The Flash is looking for work, and the Keystone Police are looking for someone to advise them on the city's Velocity 9 drug problem. Thus, the police commissioner assigns the fastest man alive to accompany one Detective Cleveland as his temporary partner. During their first surveys of the city's rundown districts the two encounter a strangely organized pack of dogs, feral animals that attack with ferocity and unexpected skill. And this doesn't seem to be an isolated incident. Animals all over the city are behaving strangely. Responding to a report of chaos at the Keystone City Zoo, Flash and Cleveland track an escaping monkey through the city streets in order to discover the source of this phenomenon. The animal leads them to an abandoned apartment building. There, stark terror takes over as the scarlet speedster finds himself face-to-face with Grodd. The brilliant, powerful, and blood-thirsty gorilla is raising an army of intelligent animals in order to overthrow human order and take the city as his own!
