    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 27, 2012

    Flash is on a mission to save his girlfriend. After failing to save Iris West and others, it looks like Barry may have decided where his heart lies. This issue has a different feel to it, in part by Marcus To's art instead of Francis Manapul's. But besides that, we have a pretty violent opening scene and Weather Wizard has a darker touch to him. The story felt like it had a rapid finish which could have been nicer to see fleshed out a little more. We'll have to see what next issue brings along with whether or not Barry will try to do something to save the others that were lost in the Speed Force. Read Full Review

    Manapul's clear, energetic art style has been the key selling point for this title, but his two-issue break is covered by To seamlessly. With Manapul still providing layouts, the book maintains its signature feel as To adds in his clean pencil work. To excels at emphasizing Flash's speed without rushing the pacing or losing clarity, although my favorite panel shows Flash with a solemn look on his face after coming to an emotional revelation.

    The Rogues continue to be slowly reintroduced to the Flash's universe, and this issue brings us up to speed on the Weather Wizard " we learn everything we need to know about him, as well as some more hints as to the event that lead to the Rogues new powers being dropped. There is a lot of story in this issue, and you will most certainly get your moneys' worth. Manapul's art is missed of course, but To as a fill-in is a fantastic choice, bringing his own take on Barry's world to the table and keeping this one of the most enjoyable of the New 52.

    Given his need to keep running, which keeps getting in the way of Barry's life, and his desire to no longer hurt Patty anymore, the Flash decides Barry Allen needs to stay dead. I'm not sure I like this turn, or leaving Iris still stuck in limbo, but I'll stick around to see how it plays out. Up next, Heat Wave. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jul 2, 2012

    The only reason that this scene has any emotional resonance among all the clichs can be credited to the excellent facial expressions courtesy of the art team. The panel of The Flash's face as he listens to Patty's pain eloquently conveys dismay, shame and acceptance. It's too bad, then, that the writing is less subtle than the art. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 3, 2012

    Rather than chipping away at their flaws, Manapul-Buccellato's shortcomings as writers have only grown more pointed with each issue. Close as we are to the one-year mark, I may have no choice but to Drop this series for better things. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Jul 1, 2012

    Like last week's Daredevil review, it might be a little harsh, but I was honestly disappointed with the writing in this issue. The conflict between the Flash and the Weather Wizard should have been front and centre this entire issue, but it was lost in the shuffle of trying to quickly explain the many unclear actions and motivations that led to that encounter. And the issue also suffers from the lack of Manapul art. This issue would have benefited greatly from a bit more lead-up to the whole thing, instead of dropping the reader in the middle of it and trying to explain the whole thing during the fight.
