"The Wild Wests" finale! The newest Flash family faces a last stand in Keystone--but in this spectacular climax, we find they've been here before, once upon a time on the world that sheltered them.

    This issue was fun, it was energetic and it was a prime example of how to bring a story-arc to a fitting conclusion. Mark Waid has done a great job bringing Wally West back into the DC Universe and into a new role as a character. This issue is very well done because it not only shows how effectively tie a story-line together, but it also shows a major character adapting and accepting a life-altering role. This is my Pick of the Week. Read Full Review

    I should also point out how little I care for the art of Freddie Williams II, who inexplicably draws the Flash (and Black Lightning and John Stewart, for that matter), as if he's been pumped full of ten doses of Bane's Venom. I'm no stickler for proper anatomy in my superhero comics, but Williams' humans are lumpy and a bit grotesque, and I'm fairly certain that's not the look he's going for in a book like The Flash. In comparison to the Doug Braithwaite-painted backup stories that have accompanied each of these last five issues, Williams' art looks rather amateurish. Read Full Review
