"The Wild Wests" part 1! Spinning out of "The Lightning Saga" from JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA, the Flash Wally West has returned to the DCU--along with his suddenly-aged and super-powered children!

    Overall, this is a perfect re-launch to the Flash and Wally Wests life. The family dynamic should play very well with these characters, and I truly look forward to learning more answers as this series progresses. Read Full Review

    Otherwise, this book was an excellent return for Wally and family and worth a look for anyone interested in the fastest man alive. I was disappointed at absolutely no mention or alluding to the death of the previous Flash, but it is possible the picture Iris throws across the room was of him, but that would be an odd action to take for someone who was close to them. While I do not want them dwelling on the previous series or events, I would still like some mention of the sacrifice made and the effects he had on Keystone City. Despite this, I am still looking forward to the next issue and more of the scarlet speedster family. Read Full Review

    I was really disappointed with Flash #231. It wasn't that this issue was a terrible read, it's just I was expecting a lot more than what we got. I still have confidence in Waid being able to make the Flash a consistently good read. I think that Wally fans will just be happy to have their boy back and will enjoy this issue for that reason alone. Bart fans will probably gripe that this is a step back from what we got near the end of Flash Fastest Man Alive. And Barry fans? I guess we just have to hope that Alex Ross pushes for a Barry Allen mini-series like he delivered with Justice. Read Full Review
