    While it's a little unfair to be making this comparison, I have to mention Phil Jimenez's work on an Infinite Crisis preview in the latest edition of Wizard where he offers up a shot of the new Reverse Flash that perfectly captures the unsettling visual of the character. This in turn only serves to make Howard Porter's version of the character even more disappointing. This is a character who is supposed to be so fast that he makes the Flash look slow, and yet the art really doesn't sell this idea, though the writing certainly doesn't help sell the illusion either, as the character is nailed by Jay's helmet. Now there are some nice little impact visuals, such as the window shatter punch that the original Zoom uses on Wally, and there's a lovely double page shot in the middle of the issue as the characters enter the time stream. For the most part though, this issue's art is less than impressive when it comes to capturing the sheer intensity of the action on the page. I do love this Read Full Review
