    The Flash #33 is another rock-solid installment in the adventures of the Scarlett Speedster. The writing continues to be sharp to accompany eye-catching art. Though the story is now fiveissues in, Venditti and Jensen have crafted a single issue that is welcoming to new readers. It truly is impressive that, as the opening arc reaches its apex, the creative team continues to find new ways to pull readers in. Read Full Review

    Following The Nerd - Sarah Barclay Jul 30, 2014

    Flash keeps getting later and later to scenes, and I have a feeling Barry's going to be feeling the pain of that real soon. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Cole Kennedy Jul 23, 2014

    The Future Flash presents new opportunities to jump back and forth from the present to the future in order to effectively keep the story moving. It almost seems poetic that everything from the story to the art contains either a fast-paced plot or dynamic, exciting action; everything that's common with the Flash, this book doesn't miss a step. All directions being taken, both by Barry and the Future Flash, are leading up to one exciting showdown that you won't want to miss. Read Full Review

    The Flash #33 is a good issue, but the lack of fun is starting to wear on me.  It just doesn't have the spark it used to.  However, Brett Booth's art is spectacular and a Rogue is in this issue and lives.  Imagine that.  Present day and Future Barry Allen are headed for a head on collision and I know I will be in the front row to watch it.  Just make it more fun.  Please.

    Geeked Out Nation - John Tuppen Jul 24, 2014

    I'm in a really tough position now. Flash is my favourite DC character; Barry and Wally both. I get that it's tough to write a cookie cutter good through and through character, I get that there is an allure to being edgy and the appearance of being cool. But looking at how Geoff Johns and John Romita Jr. have transformed Superman and brought that air of humble goodness back to the character; I know it's not impossible. It's a problem far too prolific across the DC brand and seeing it in The Flash leaves me feeling disappointed. The Flash #33 is a great read in its own right but not necessarily one I'd want to find under the title of The Flash. Read Full Review

    Robert Venditti and Van Jensen use the latest issue of the Flash to advance the plot in a big way, and while the mystery of the Mashup killer has been an interesting one so far, the revelations in this issue come a bit too easy to be satisfying. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Jul 29, 2014

    Flash has been doing well so far, so I'm hoping this issue, which looks to be the penultimate part of the first storyline by the new creative team, is just a bump along the road. There's still lots of time for the team to prove that they can execute the ending with flair and clever plotting, which is how they've managed to turn out the last few issues, so the precedent has been set.

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Jul 24, 2014

    But the break in the weapons case is intriguing, and the future Flash part of the story is once again very good. I would say it's quickly becoming past time we kick the time travel story into gear and start advancing that plot, but I have a feeling we'll see that next issue. I'm still a fan of the overall direction of the series, this just feels like a bit of a misstep. Read Full Review
