Out of time! The Flash is trapped in a bizarre, lost land terrorized by castaways from the past, present, and future. But that leaves Central City without a hero...or does it?

    An absolute winner of a book. Two Flashes for the price of one. You can't go wrong with this! Read Full Review

    This issue picks up for the great ending last month and well, runs with it.  Venditti and Jensen are shaping two awesome and unique stories that are full of drama and mystery.  I really can't wait to see what happens next because of the crazy foundation laid out this month.  With Brett Booth and Andre Coelho kicking ass on art, this book is one of the best combination of story and visuals on the shelf today.  I loved it.

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Nov 26, 2014

    The end result is an issue which does a little bit better than most of the issue's in this series. The overall level of expectation for the Flash is usually of an entertaining level, though not necessarily more, but with the added time paradox aspect of this issue the series takes a deeper (and darker) turn. The Flash is actually one of the series at DC Comics which benefits best from a more scientific approach, and as that is here, this issue is tapping into its own Speed Force. Read Full Review

    With a cast of characters that are currently abrasive to readers, Venditti and Jensen are making it difficult for readers to want to keep reading long-term. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Chris Lemmerman Nov 30, 2014

    This new arc of Flash begins well, establishing new mysteries for our Barry whilst getting the Future Barry's hands dirty in the present. There's some strong hooks to continue reading about, with the Speed Force section being tantalisingly short, and Future Barry's section being all over the place, helping to cement his feeling of fish-out-of-water. It seems that the Future Flash is here to stay, at least for now, and that works just fine with me. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Nov 30, 2014

    I think I'd be happy if Barry could just win a fight once in a while. He only survives this issue because of assistance - he'd never last on his own. And that's not my idea of a hero. Read Full Review

    "The Flash" #36 is moving along at a reasonable clip; the Blue Flash storyline's hit its first major turning point, and so far how it's playing it is working. Venditti and Jensen's story is definitely written with the longer game in mind, though; once it's complete, it'll be easier to judge this as part of a larger whole. Until then, though, it's reasonable but not setting the world on fire. Certainly good enough to come back for another installment. Read Full Review

    Not a perfect comic but the most fun I've had with a Flash issue in awhile. Prehistoric dinosaurs and robotic sentinels from the future makes for some fun times ahead. We get introduced to a savage scientist type character that helps Flash out in a bind and I'm curious to how he's gonna play out in the grand scheme of things. Meanwhile outside of Speed Force Jurassic Park, Future Flash has officially taken over Barry's life and I think that's the most interesting spin on the Future Flash character yet. I was initially annoyed with Future Flash because it just seems like another dressed up Reverse Flash but now they might be able to something with it. Just when I though Jansen and Venditti were running out of steam we get some energy back in one of the New 52 books I've been following since its inception.
