A BRIGHTEST DAY tie-in issue! Captain Boomerang returned from the grave along with 11 other heroes and villains at the end of BLACKEST NIGHT, but why has he returned, what must he do and, more importantly, how do the other Rogues welcome him back?

    So, a solid issue, though one with precious little actual Flash content - but any Flash fan (or fan of the old Suicide Squad) will enjoy it. Read Full Review

    I have found myself enjoying the series, and this issue was yet another great addition to the current run. The cliffhanger has me waiting desperately to see what happens next. Flash #7 was a very fun book even though the title character was really nowhere to be found. Read Full Review

    It's a digression, but all in all, an entertaining one that succeeded in making me care about a character I'd been relatively indifferent about. Read Full Review

    Geoff Johns keeps up with his high-quality work this month. Flash remains at the top of my reading pile month in and month out. That being said, if you miss this issue for whatever reason, you wont be missing much. I would begrudgingly have to say that this is probably the worst issue so far of the new Flash series, but that still is not much of an insult. Even when its just filler without its main character, Johns still manages to make a fun read. I hope things pick up some when the next issue drops in two weeks, but I still enjoyed myself this issue.

    Its likely that Johns best days writing the Scarlet Speedster are behind him, but The Flash #7 is a high point for a series that seemed deserving of being cast aside just a few months prior. Read Full Review

    Oddly enough, the quality of Kolins' art mirrors that of Johns' script, with the artist struggling with some awkward facial expressions and static compositions during the flashback sequences before rising to his usual level of dynamic, emotionally driven work once the story kicks into gear in the present day. The issue is definitely a mixed bag, and the good only barely outweighs the bland. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Dec 10, 2010

    For every step forward this issue makes, it takes another big step back...over and over and over again. There is a lot that the creative team does really well here that is at war at all the things they could have done better. The end result is a wildly uneven ride that, while entertaining, can't overcome its flaws to be the comic it has the potential of being. Read Full Review

    In general, I can't really figure out why this particular issue of "The Flash" exists. Clearly, Johns wants to establish Captain Boomerang as an important figure in the DC Universe. We've known that for years. And at the close of the issue, he makes a mistake that will certainly impact "The Flash" in the very near future. But, as a whole, who really asked for this? Captain Boomerang was famously resurrected at the end of "Blackest Night". Maybe next time we'll get lucky and they'll pick The Heckler instead. Read Full Review
