    Barry catches up to August after finding out that August's brother's killer was murdered by Godspeed. Putting two and two together and confronting August until he suits up as Godspeed. Oh dear. That's another friend of Barry's that has betrayed him becoming a villain. We're not sure how much more Barry can take at this point. We can't wait to see where the series continues.

    What is really shocking, and heart breaking, is the revelation of Godspeeds identity. I never do spoilers, and I am being careful not to reveal too much. But its a worthy revelation, one that Williamson spent time building up, so it pays off very effectively. Read Full Review

    While the arc makes surprising reveals and twists to the ongoing story, the issue being a straightforward aftermath issue leading into the next phase is appreciated as it allows everyone to catch a breathe before the next huge moment of The Flash. Read Full Review

    While the issue's ultimate reveal was not surprising, it was still fascinating to see August's reasoning behind becoming Godspeed. Artwork is solid and effective in invoking an emotional response. Fans of the Flash definitely don't want to miss this issue, especially because it looks like big changes are coming the Flash's way!

    Flickering Myth - Tony Black Oct 4, 2016

    By the end, The Flash leaves us on a huge cliffhanger as Barry faces his first real battle against Godspeed, and it looks set to be very high stakes for him in more ways than one. With great panels from Carmine di Giandomenico, and superb writing from Williamson as we've come to expect, The Flash is speeding towards a triumphant conclusion to an excellent opening arc.

    The Flash remains the foundation of the DC Universe and that's just how we like it. Read Full Review

    The wait is over and we do find out who Godspeed is.  My problem isn't with who it is or why they are doing what they are doing...no, my problem is that it all falls a bit flat and just feels like setup.  I really liked Carmine Di Giandomenico's art and have faith that Joshua Williamson will blow my mind eventually...I just wish it was now.

    This was a great issue. The revelation of Godspeed's identity is surprising, but fits the way the character has been portrayed since his introduction. I love that we get a few more hints about DC Rebirth. Keep them coming, DC! Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Richard Gray Sep 14, 2016

    That final cliffhanger is potentially something that avid readers will have seen coming a mile of, but the beauty of Williamson’s world-building is that it still feels kind of exciting to get to this point anyway. Even if the story pieces seem somewhat familiar, they are being put together with panache, and after three-quarters of a century that’s an impressive enough feat for a character. Read Full Review

    CourtOfNerds - Benjamin Raven Sep 15, 2016

    It's another strong issue for Joshua Williamson and Carmine Di Giandomenico with The Flash No. 6. Angry, secluded Barry is back and this issue screams with an identity crisis. Also, holy cliffhanger!  Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 15, 2016

    Di Giandomenico's sleek figures, coupled with FCO Plascencia's vivid colors, result in one of the best-looking comics in the Rebirth lineup. It's equally pleasing to see Joshua Williamson's saga reach a major turning point in this issue. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 14, 2016

    This has been another Rebirth kickoff story arc that's dragged on way too long. Next issue promises the big showdown between Flash and Godspeed. This should have been an exciting confrontation, but at this point I'm just ready to move on from it and kickoff the next story arc. Read Full Review

    The pace had slowed down a bit on this arc and I was slightly concerned that it was dropping off from it's exciting start and dragging on too long. But with this issue those doubts were dispelled and there were twists, turns and shocks at every moment - the stakes are high and I can't wait to see the next issue. The art and colours capture the energy of the issue very well, and the dialogue is well-written... if you aren't already picking up the Flash, I'd recommend it based on the issues so far.

    There is a melancholy to this issue that few comics can ever make you feel. On one end the visually appealing art, and fantastic character and story development makes this issue worth praise, but on the other hand the sadness the surrounds the reveal of Godspeed makes one hope what they are reading is false. Great issue and story arc!

    I feel perplex about this issue, I found it quite heterogeneous in quality. On one side, some really nice and peculiar moments stand out, but, on the other side, the flaws from the previous chapters, like some cheesy interactions or artificial explanations, keep broadening. Concering the big revelation, it was very foreseeable for me, even if I found it rather well brought up in the issue. Furthermore, the story arc is beginning to stretch too much and its pace is somewhat confusing. The art also disappointed me a little, since Di Giandomenico normally produces a stronger work.
