I honestly don't why DC is letting Vendetti/Jensen and Booth stay on this book. This book reads like the average mid-90's book, the edgy Marvel kind and not the awesome Mark Waid Flash-kind. There's nothing wrong with trying to copy the show (that's actually a great idea), but this book is so half-assed in it's creativity and consistency that it's mind-boogling that DC isn't trying to hide the fact that they don't give a crap about anyone named Batman. The Flash is the perfect hero to be the next big face of DC, so that they can replace Batman. But it seems like Vendetti and Jansen have no interest in writing this character. Vendetti's work on smaller books such as Etrigan is good, but his Flash/GL output is poor.
It's been incredibly hard to follow this run. Not because it's confusing, but because it's really boring. Trying to do a darker take on the Flash isn't a bad idea of done right, but turning the title into a generically-edgy title simply doesn't work. Having the CCPD try and capture the Flash isn't the most original idea, but at least it was done right before. In this book, everyone acts like their in Dan Slott's Superior Spider-Man, since everyone is an illogical moron. The dialogue is incredibly generic and Zoom is wasted here. I just want Venditti and Jensen of the book. The Darkseid War tie-in wasn't perfect, but Rob William's script showed potential for a good Flash story.
At least this is Brett Booth's semi-final issue. His work on Nightwing was okay, but his work on the Flash has been poor. It's a faux Jim Lee style that simply doesn't work, partly due to Andrew Dalhouse's coloring.
