It's a case of the chicken-or-the-egg as Barry Allen takes on the Black Lantern Reverse-Flash and seeks answers to the very nature of Professor Zoom's impending resurrection. Plus, the Rogues witness an act so horrifying that it changes one of their own forever.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Feb 17, 2010

    Great miniseries that builds upon Blackest Night, adds to it and also tells its own story. Some interesting implications for Brightest Day and the beginnings of what I believe will be another Rogues return to prominence in the upcoming Flash monthly. This has me more excited for that new ongoing than Rebirth has, so if you've been on the fence about Barry's return, pick up this series to change your opinion on him. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Feb 17, 2010

    In the end, Blackest Night: The Flash succeeds largely because it offers the chance to see Johns and Kolins once again have demented fun with the Rogues. Kolins' dynamic pencils and lush visuals are always a perfect fit for the Flash's colorful cast of villains, and he's virtually unparalleled when it comes depicting super speed in action. Am I alone in wanting to see a Johns/Kolins Rogues series far more than any Barry Allen solo book? Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Eric Ridgeway Feb 19, 2010

    Overall this issue is pretty sloppy. There are even more problems with this book that I rather not mention now and why do we have to wait until Blackest Night #8 for a conclusion? Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Feb 19, 2010

    In the final pages, the Blue Lantern Flash story and the Captain Cold and his wily gang of Rogues stories parallel each other, with Johns and Kolins cutting back and forth between them as they quote from "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and march toward their destiny: a new "Flash" series, after a brief pit stop in "Blackest Night" #8.

    It turns out I didn't like this comic at all... I didn't like Saint Barry magically curing Bart, I didn't like the Rogues killing Captain Boomerang Jr, and I ESPECIALLY didn't like the apparent revelation that the Reverse Flash is somehow connected to the White Lanterns... Boy, I'm usually one of Geoff John's most stringent supporters, but lately, his work has been leaving me flat... The sooner Blackest Night is over, the better. Read Full Review

    Mania - Chris Smits Feb 22, 2010

    The bottom line is that if you have the extra money and like the Flash characters then go ahead and pick it up. If you're indifferent, but have been following Blackest Night, then just stay over on the main series and don't worry about it. Read Full Review
