    This book brings fun back to heroics. If only there were more books like this. Read Full Review

    Overall it is a great two shot comic! Tony Bedard does a great job at reminding us how awesome Wally was and artist Tony Grummett does an excellent job at giving us that 90's style artwork that made many of us get into comics to begin with. These two shots serve to show us of a time when the characters had different values and didn't have to be so dark and broody all the time. The only thing Speed Force #2 suffers from is actually including Flashback for no reason other than to be a play thing for Wally's children. Although I like Wally West I wish they would have did these issues without his children but to each his own I guess. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Loukas May 12, 2015

    Sometimes, you run across a story decision that is simply a misfire. The premise or execution is simply so totally wrongheaded or mishandled that it is easy to deal with by simply pointing out its complete impropriety and shoving it to the side. Other times, you find a story element so completely right, so completely fitting, that you can only smile with joy. That is actually harder to convey in a review, as smiles simply don't translate well through a keyboard, even with the use of emoticons. Read Full Review

    The Convergence tie-ins so far have skewed away from being just fight books, but regretfully, Convergence: Speed Force #2 feels like exactly that and nothing more. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daniel Gehen May 11, 2015

    The fatal flaw inConvergence: Speed Force is that the story ultimately goes nowhere. When readers wereintroduced to Wally and his kids back in the first issue, they were waiting out the situation, hoping for the best. That's exactly where they find themselves at the end of this issue – just sitting around hoping for the best. As a result, readers are left with anything but the best. Read Full Review

    This book was a major letdown for me.  The setup to this finale was so much fun, but we end up getting a boring fight (or two), an odd moral lesson and a very forced ending.  The art was good, but I can't recommend this book to anyone...even fans who read last month's #1. Read Full Review
