    This is how super hero comics should make you feel: alive, thrilled, inspired, and hungry for more. Recommended. Read Full Review

    It's a credit to the creative team that an issue so heavy on setup still had me this engaged.  The mystery of the savage Speed Force and the true motivation of Future Barry are still far from being revealed and now a new villain has entered the fray.  Venditti and Jensen are juggling a bunch of cool ideas and Brett booth is making it all look great.  I just hope we get some answers sometime soon.

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Dec 24, 2014

    Despite its many quality aspects I am not getting a lot from this run on The Flash. I don't like the take on the character of Barry Allen. It doesn't feel like him as I've known him. Conceptually though, each of the stories this team are choosing to tell are all interesting and worth a read for that reason. If nothing else what The Flash #37 does achieve is a harder edge that book has lacked in the past. I can't help but wonder though if that's because this book has never really required or been about that. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Dec 29, 2014

    It still remains unclear where the creative team is taking this story. Though the writers are trying to make the case that the hardships he hasfaced over hiscrime-fighting career has hardened his personality,the Future Flash they have created is Barry Allen in name only. Barry is mild-mannered, hopeful in the face of tragedy, and always looking forward. These characteristics whichmake Barry Allen endearing to readers are nowhere to be found in the Future Flash. Granted, the heroic incarnation that is trapped in the Speed Force is wholly recognizable,the script gives greater attention to the alienating version from the future. This story arc has the potential to be very good, but it continues to be held back byan unfocused narrative. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Dec 31, 2014

    I'd like to see Flash get back home and sort out the messes in Central City, but nothing made me care too much in this issue about the characters. If you're reading the Flash you won't want to miss this, but it's not a jumping on point. Too many ideas make this a muddled issue and it doesn't progress very far, if at all. 3 Daily Planets might be generous. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Jan 3, 2015

    This issue of The Flash isn't really anything to write home about, with both the Flash and Future Flash stories being kind of pedestrian at the moment before things kick into higher gear later on. The promise of Overload gains this issue half a point, and Brett Booth is back to pencilling the entire issue after help from a fill-in last month, so the visuals are as top notch as ever. Next issue should be a bit more action packed, but this month's one is definitely a quieter affair. Read Full Review
