    This is team that DC cannot break up anytime soon. This series has blown me away since issue one and rest assured that I will be getting the hardcover when it comes out in November. If this book isn't in your pull box each month you are depriving yourself from not only a great series, but one of the best superheroes there is. And yes, that was totally bias (and true).

    I don't know what happened this month, but Brian Buccellatto and Frances Manapul have finally found their footing as storytellers. Read Full Review

    All in all if writers Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul continue to focus on Barry's interaction with the Rogues, both in and out of costume, this book should easily become one of the New 52s top books. I enjoy Barry Allen the crime scene scientist, but I'm enjoying Al the blue collar bartender even more. He feels eerily similar to Wally West the missing Flash.. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jul 25, 2012

    Last issue felt like a hiccup. Now we're getting back on track. Barry is exploring his new status as 'deceased' and it's going to be interesting to see where it takes him along with the new opportunities available. We do get an interesting look at how Captain Cold sees himself compared to how society has changed. We're getting some deep layers here courtesy of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. Marcus To's art has a better feel here compared to last issue. The action may have been a tid less than I would have wanted but you can see where this is headed and it's looking pretty good from here. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jul 25, 2012

    It makes a certain amount of sense for Barry to live and operate where the crime is -- just like Batman, he muses -- but given his super speed, couldn't he just zip over to that part of town whenever trouble strikes? Probably, but then we would miss out on the funny conversations with the gruff bartender at his new job. The rogues come and go like the wind, but I hope the bartender sticks around for future installments. With all these wonderful developments, it has to be mentioned that this series never fails to dedicate a large chunk of time recapping what came before. While it's great that the writers want to keep readers in the know, the lack of style used when dropping in exposition has become grating. The Flash looks great, so taking time to develop the words will only do the title justice. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jimmy Jul 27, 2012

    Ironically given the progressive nature of Manapul's artistic layouts, this title's story has been very reminiscent of Silver Age comics, in a very good way. I like how Manapul has been introducing the Rogues, and am excited for him to be back on art with the next issue, assuming that is indeed the case. Overall I believe The Flash #11 deserves an above average three and a half stars; the solid story helps make up for my disappointment in not having Manapul on art. Read Full Review

    The Flash rockets on in this second arc as the Rogues continue to come together, as does the Flash's world. Manapul and Buccellato continue to prove themselves excellent writers, and Marcus To's contributions to this title won't soon be forgotten. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Jul 31, 2012

    If I have to put it in the plainest terms, I'm just bored by the story we've been getting. No matter how you look at it, it reads like two rookie writers so enthusiastic about their material they can't see its mediocrity. Dropped. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jul 31, 2012

    I enjoyed Barry as the Flash, but I'm still unsure of his life out of costume in this arc. It's also interesting to note that in the New 52 Keystone City is compared to Gotham in terms of in terms of high levels of crime and corruption. We'll see what the Flash has to say about that. Worth a look. Read Full Review
