    Howard Porter's work has never really grabbed me. While I don't dislike his art and can understand why he would have a loyal fan base, in the end I simply can't work up much enthusiasm toward his art. I mean it tells the story in a clear enough fashion, and the art manages to deliver some solid big impact moments, from the opening shot of the gathered Justice League, to the final page arrival shot, I can't say there was anything about the art on this issue that really caught my eye. In the end I find his characters to be a bit stiff, his facial expressions to be rather limited, and perhaps worst of all the art never quite manages to capture the visual impact the Flash's power. Now I will give the art credit for its work on the opening page, as Wally grief is nicely presented, and the same goes for the Top's sense of guilt later in the issue. The cover image is also a pretty powerful visual to incite one to read the issue. Read Full Review
