    I must confess I found myself a little underwhelmed by this final chapter, as while Grodd has a menacing presence, and he's powerful enough to present a real challenge to the Flash, the simple fact of the matter is that he's simply not all that interesting a character once you get past being impressed by the sheer animalistic fury. I mean the standalone issue from last year stands up as one of my favorite issues of Geoff Johns' run, so I know the character can be a solid villain, but this current arc got a little tiresome once it became clear that all Grodd brought to the table was raw savagery. Still, there are some solid moments in this issue as Geoff Johns has a strong understanding of what makes Wally such an engaging lead, and Gorilla City is one of the more interesting locals to visit in the DCU. The art of Scott Kolins also makes the big final battle visually exciting in spite of the rather uninspired means that Wally employs to take down Grodd. Read Full Review
