    Overall, despite a silly plot and some poor character choices, Peter and Williams don't stumble too much. This is a solid creative team; their styles fit well together. However the core of this series is still critically flawed. Incredibles and Fantastic Four did this already, and have that formula nailed. Flash is having to stretch too much to be different, and where it is different, it fails. It's odd to be somewhat upbeat in this review and still completely dislike an issue, but that's where I'm at. This reads well, but things are a mess beneath that shiny exterior. You're seriously better off checking out what Millar and Hitch are doing. Read Full Review
