    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Apr 24, 2013

    Get ready to see Barry Allen like you've never seen him before. Brian Buccellato concludes his two-issue solo arc and it's a doosey. With Barry losing his powers last issue, it's a whole new game and the story takes a great and different direction. Marcio Takara fills in nicely for Manapul and this issue just shows that he needs to be put on another ongoing title ASAP. We're on the verge of a new arc for the Flash and get quite the introduction in the final pages. THE FLASH is continuing to pick up speed so you'll want to be sure to keep up with it so you don't miss out on the craziness that's about to be unleashed. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Apr 25, 2013

    So, we come to the end of a short arc, and now we must prepare for the Reverse Flash, who made his grand appearance at the end of the issue by killing Albert (kind of a bummer, too. I liked Albert!) and making an interesting inner monologue in the process. But hey, I am really digging the villain's redesign! Read Full Review

    The switch between artists on the final two pages"Marcio Takara hands over the reins to series regular Francis Manapul"is jarring but not entirely unwelcome. Under Buccellato and Manapul's guidance, The Flash had become one of the prettiest books in DC's lineup and it's nice to see Manapul back in action, even if just for two pages. Takara has done a stellar job as the title's artists for the past couple of issues so it's not really a problem so much as it's an embarrassment of riches. Manapul also shares a writing credit for this glimpse into what's in store for The Flash next issue and it's nice to see the dream team back together again. Read Full Review

    Other then that there's nothing really negative to say about this issue, it's strong and finishes off the mini arc nicely, we some more character development and a sneak peek at the next story it seems which looks weird but weird can be good and I feel confident the creative team on this are up to the task.

    Newsarama - Brian Bannen Apr 29, 2013

    Where DC teased the introduction of the Reverse Flash into the new 52, he has minimal impact on the story and his appearance is more of a lead into the next issue. What we get, however, is a well constructed story about true heroism, and how not everyone has the ability " with or without powers " to fill those shoes. The art occasionally derails the tale, but due to the strength of the character, Flash #19 rebounds nicely, even if not completely sticking the landing. Read Full Review

    This issue suffers slightly from inconsistent art from a usually reliable source, but the story remains as strong as ever; Buccellato has managed to capably craft a two issue story that deals with the fallout of the previous arc and set up the oncoming threat of the Reverse Flash with flare, as well as pseudo-crossing over with another title. This title goes from strength to strength, and with the return of Manapul to scripts and pencils next issue, our next arc looks set to be even better than the preceding ones. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Apr 30, 2013

    Once again Francis Manapul is back to do the issue's cover, but the art inside the book by Marcio Takara, which isn't bad, is certainly a step down from what we were getting before. Read Full Review
