    We The Nerdy - Jonathan Crean Jul 2, 2014

    Venditti conjures up such great writing in this issue, that I'm left wondering what the hell is going to be happening to Barry, Wally, and this mystery villain! Let's not forget about Booth and his talented artwork. I was enveloped in this comic so much with his detail to each character, their facial expressions, and the action! Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jun 26, 2014

    I'm still genuinely loving the direction this title's taking, and it feels like classic super-hero stuff, which is no bad thing at all, and perhaps more rare these days than we'd like. If you're looking for a DC hero book to pick up, you could do much worse than the Flash. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 25, 2014

    The Flash #32 is another great issue in Venditti and Jensen's run.  It is an emotional issue with a sad farewell and the beginning of a new relationship.  Barry may have fractured the Speed Force, but it's great seeing him try to fix it.  I can't wait to see more. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Jun 27, 2014

    The Flash #32 is a comic placed firmly in the central point of a larger narrative and as such doesn't lend itself to new readers. If you want to enjoy it for everything it is you will need to go back and read everything from The Flash #30 onwards. That said, by drawing out a future where everything has already gone wrong and slowly pulling us back towards the point where it went wrong we get the unique experience of the past and the future drawing in together to a central moment of conflict. As a single piece of a bigger story The Flash #32 keeps its head high in the race to its finish. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Jun 26, 2014

    Barry and Wally grow closer together in the present, but it is still unclear what will happen in the many years separating the two Flash's that would cause friction between the two. While the mysteries remain, this issue was a great stepping stone in the story of the future Flash, and proof that this story, much like the Flash, is quickly moving forward in new and entertaining directions.

    Matthew can be found on Twitter at @mahargen, and he totally didn’t watch the leaked Flash pilot. But if he did, he’d be wondering when he could review it without the man coming down on him. Thoughts? Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 25, 2014

    Robert Venditti and Van Jensen are continuing to shake things up for the Flash. We're getting to see more of the future Flash and his cool look but it also means things aren't looking too great for Barry's future. Seeing more from the future along with the develops in the present gives a nice balance and feels like we're getting two stories at once. Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund easily juggle the two different eras and it's always interesting to see what's coming next. All of this plus more on Wally West. Read Full Review

    Flash #32 is full of more questions than answers, but you get the sense that once all of the setup starts paying off, this series will start picking up. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Dan Gehen Jun 26, 2014

    Though Francis Manapul has taken his talents to Gotham City, the art continues to be a strength of this series. Merge's unique powerset allows Brett Booth and his collaborators to create some fascinating visuals by twisting perceptions of reality. Andrew Dalhouse's colors are particularly striking, especially on the Future Flash. The different shades of blue on "other Barry" pop off the page. The art, however, is not as strong as in previous issues. There are some minor inconsistencies with character proportions – specifically the Flash's hands when running. Also, Barry is rendered with wide-swinging arms while in full sprint, which not only looks but is impractical for any runner. But despite its flaws, The Flash #32 is another entertaining chapter in the Future Flash saga. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Adam Jun 27, 2014

    The story isn't bad, per se. It has some interesting ideas, but most of them just plain didn't work. Patty getting pissed at Barry for hunting down the serial killer and taking an at risk kid to a baseball game was just stupid. It was just an artificial way to raise the emotional stakes of the book, and it was just bad. The writers still haven't given me a reason to care about Wally other than the fact he shares a name with a popular speedster that i like. The time travel stuff is cool, but underdeveloped. There is just something missing that will click all of this together and make it great. Until then, it is just okay. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 26, 2014

    "The Flash" is doing well under Venditti, Jensen, Booth and Rapmund; we're getting sold stories with just the right extra spark to push it into the above average category. If you'd been holding off on seeing how the new creative team is doing, this is as good a place as any to give it a whirl. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Jul 1, 2014

    I'm quietly optimistic at the moment about The Flash. The new creative team hasn't managed to screw anything up majorly just yet (although their speedy character development does need to slow down a bit), and the visuals are great. The storylines are all well balanced, and even though there's a lot going on, The Flash feels like a meaty comic book every month and takes a while to consume, plus it deserves revisiting every now and then to remind us where we've come from. Everything is bubbling away nicely at the moment " it'll soon be time for these plots to all erupt together, and then we'll see if the new team can stick the landing. Read Full Review

    Brett Booth's tenuous grasp on anatomy doesn't do Robert Venditti and Van Jensen's story any favors. Read Full Review
