As Flash stands alone without his powers or family to support him, only one question remains: is this end of the Fastest Man Alive?

    I feel like going off on a whole "The world doesn't need Barry Allen" rant, but that is probably better served in a stand alone feature instead of this review. So let's just stick with the issue at hand. I liked how the dilemma was resolved, and even though the pace moved at a break neck speed, it all made sense by the last page. Even with three artists on board, the art jumps weren't that drastic. If this really is the last Wally West adventure, which I doubt, I would say the series ended on a high note. Flash #247 deserves 4 out of 5 Stars, with the big negative being this is the second end of the Wally West era in two years. Anyone willing to bet he'll be back in a year? Read Full Review

    By no means is this the worst issue of the 21 years that I've been reading the Flash (am I really that old?!?), nor is it the best. It wraps things up and sets them over to the side. Ringing out the old while singing in the new. Read Full Review
