    Rotating artists have hurt this book. Next month another one joins the team. If DC wants this book to succeed, they need to get a stable team on this title. Peyer wrote a good wrap-up to his run on the book. I hope they find him another book soon. With the right artist, Peyer would be great on the Flash. Read Full Review

    It is quite a shame that the information age has spoiled the "secrecy" of the comic world so massively, as it seems all but given that this current volume of "The Flash" will almost certainly give way to a new title following Geoff Johns' and Ethan Van Sciver's take on the Scarlet Speedster. Just as readership fell from the previous Flash volume (featuring Bart Allen under the crimson cowl), it seems almost inevitable that history will repeat itself, despite the promise of invested stories from Alan Burnett and Paco Diaz. I've been with this volume of "The Flash" since issue #1, and I plan to see it through. Hopefully, I'm wrong and the title will continue well past 2009. We'll just have to keep reading to find out.

    All is not lost, I suppose. Ive really liked the family dynamic that Peyer has come up with for Wally. It works on all sorts of levels and adds depth and much needed personality to an extremely one dimensional character. He will be vacating the series with the next arc, and one can only take a blind stab at where the next team will take the West family. It doesnt have to be brutal in order to be goodjust take some scary family dynamics and mash them up with super speed and weve got a wonderfully entertaining comic. This one, however, a little disappointing. Read Full Review
