"Run Riot" part 1! Gorilla Grodd explodes out of his prison cell, but he's still trapped in Iron Heights--along with some of the worst villains in the DCU, including Dr. Alchemy, Peek-A-Boo, Tar Pit, and Double Down. It's a riot that the Flash might not be able to contain before it gets even worse!

    An issue that deserves to be read by any fan who enjoys a well crafted throw down between a super-hero & a super-villain, as Geoff Johns has absolutely perfected this scenario in these pages. Now following on the heels of the battle with the Rogues, this story does feel a bit familiar, as once again the story features Wally squaring off against an army of baddies. However, having the action set within the confines of Iron Heights, and the involvement of Grodd has me welcoming this latest arc with open arms. Plus, the simple fact of the matter is that Geoff Johns has figured out a formula that generates a level of pure excitement that I simply don't find in any other comic, as I actually fear for Wally's safety when he's fighting these villains, and the last page is just a perfect way to leave me counting the days until the next issue. Scott Kolins art is also a vital part of this book, and it's one of the main reasons this book is my absolute favorite title coming out of DC. Read Full Review

    Scenes of the Flash in action impress largely because of Scott Kollins. He seems born to draw the Fastest Man Alive and exhibits great comfort with the speed effects. Less impressive is the single domestic scene. The scene between Wally and Linda looks artificial and feels planted rather than evolved from the story. There's no build-up leading to the scene, and Mr. Kollins' anatomy seems to have lapsed somewhere. Incidentally where are Linda's nipples? We get a bird's-eye view of her naked breasts, but both are missing nipples. This confuses me. Breasts are all right in an "all ages book" but not nipples? Wally has nipples. Where did Linda's nipples go? If you're going to show uncovered breasts, it's a little ridiculous not to show the nipples. Read Full Review
