    There's only one issue left of this arc, and I can't even begin to fathom what happens next. Are any of those affected by the Speed Force safe? Read Full Review

    Whoa, what an issue.  The Flash #23 had everything you could want in a comic.  Great action and fight scenes, check.  Awesome art and coloring? Yep.  A crazy reveal?  Oh yea.  A great cliff hanger that will make the two month wait for the next issue unbearable?  A huge YES.  Do yourself a favor and buy this book for yourself and any comic book fan you know.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Aug 28, 2013

    There's nothing like a good mystery full of high octane action. Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato have cranked things up in this Reverse-Flash story. We've been wondering who the heck this character is and when we find out, it's in a shocking manner. There are still more questions to find out. Thankfully we only have to wait two weeks for THE FLASH 23.2, focusing on Reverse-Flash. Manapul and Buccellato know how to deliver a great comic. We get a great and compelling story accompanied by stellar art and colors. It's almost like they're trying to spoil us. Read Full Review

    IGN - Melissa Grey Aug 28, 2013

    Visually, the book is as stunning as we've come to expect from the team of Manapul and Buccellato. The Flash has earned its place amongst the elite when it comes to art; everything from the clever use of page space to the alternating delicate and visceral colors makes for a unique aesthetic. Now that we know who the dastardly Speed Force Killer really is, it'll be interesting to see how Manapul and Buccellato situate him within the Flash's narrative framework next month.

    Modern Age Comics - Alexander Moser Sep 1, 2013

    Flash gives us a perfect time to start reading the comic. Filled with action and a surprising plot reveal, readers can jump right onto the title to see the latest info about the scarlet speedster. Manapul and Buccellato also will be giving us Reverse Flash's origins next month, so now's a great time to stick around. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Atlee Greene Sep 3, 2013

    However, the Reverse Flash is so hell bent on his objective that any other element of danger seems moot. This doesn't take away from the story in any way, shape, or form, but it is something to examine considering what the big reveal means for the series going forward. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Sep 2, 2013

    The reveal of Daniel West was unexpected, and we'll have to wait until at least next month to discover his story. I'm also wondering if this isn't the first step to introduce another member of the West family. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Oscar Russell Aug 29, 2013

    Without giving too much away, we do find out who the Reverse-Flash is, but to be honest it does feel a tad underwhelming, considering we have only seen this character once and that was in a Zero issue for a brief moment. Despite trying to make it into a huge thing, it really doesn't site right to build it up to this. However, in a universe that has been so well crafted up till this point, we can be certain that this will go big places and may even bring back some much loved missing characters. Read Full Review
