It's just another day in Central City as The Flash battles The Hydro Hunter, a metahuman made entirely of water! "Smoak Signals," a special two-part adventure starring Arrow's Felicity Smoak starts here!
With the mid-season break going on, there are a lot of television fans who are looking to get their Flash fix, but don't want to wade into the non-television continuity of the New 52. The Flash: Season Zero #9 satisfies the urge for more Grant Gustin, even though his character is seen for less than half of the issue. I am fine with Felicity Smoak showing up multiple times and I'll be honest, seeing her name in the solicitation for the issue was what tipped it for me to buy the book on comiXology. To get both parts of the story, spending $2.00 is a small price for some really good art. The setup is a bit rushed due to the "done in one" nature of the story, but I'm okay with Kreisberg and Guggenheim's storytelling. If you are a fan of the Flash television series, The Flash: Season Zero #9 is worth picking up while waiting for the Man in the Yellow Suit to return to give Barry trouble. Read Full Review
The Flash: Season Zero #9 is a refreshing change of pace after the overly long saga with Nathan Bliss but the learning curve can be a bit too much. The book is kind enough to give brief descriptions of both Palmer and Smoak, but as soon as Oliver's name came up I officially became dumbfounded--I'm that far behind. That being said there's no reason I can't recommend this issue to anyone looking for an awesome Flash story--I only wish The Hydro Hunter had been in the tale a bit longer. Read Full Review
