    Familiar story elements bring this book down, but the visuals raise it up. I'll be back next month, to be sure. Read Full Review

    While it remains to be seen what will happen with the story arc, the setup could not be better. The story telling is very clever as it tells the story in a way that the reader gets to experience the mystery just as Barry does. Of course the reader knows that Thawn is coming, but that is really their only advantage over the character. There are a few other clever moves as well, such as using members of the Rogue's gallery that are not as well known, and thus less likely to steal the show from the bigger enemy. As it stands this is shaping up to be the best Flash story since Flashpoint, and for any fans that have been looking for a place to get on board, this is it! Read Full Review

    This issue is a good jumping on point for new readers, but there is plenty for returning fans to love as well.  The big draw coming in was Professor Zoom and while his appearance was brief, it sets him up as a pretty evil badass.  However, Henry Allen stole the show and what he does has me so pumped up for the book going forward.

    The Flash #41 is a wonderful jumping on point for fans of the Scarlet Speedster. Venditti and Jensen's tightlyscripted issue shows much promise forthis new arc, while the art by Booth, Rapmund, and Jensen is full of the kinetic energy a book like The Flash demands. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Jun 24, 2015

    Overall, "The Flash" #41 does a good job of coming out of the "Convergence" break with enough for old and new readers to sink their teeth into. This is a book that is primed to be a huge seller, so long as the right approach for new readers is presented. So far? I think it's heading down that path. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Jun 25, 2015

    This slightly new direction of The Flash is a mixed bag. Brett Booth remains a great choice on art, his exaggerated style partnering so well with Andrew Dalhouse's bold and vibrant colors. The action is electric. On the other hand, the script feels like it's trying to emulate the CW television show, but only repeating the most tedious bits of it (do we really need another scene of Barry promising his father justice and freedom?) while leaving out the compelling side characters that make CW's The Flash so successful.

    The series needs a better supporting cast, some characterization for the title character, and better opponents. You know, like the TV show. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Dodge Jun 26, 2015

    "The Flash" #41 well certainly feel familiar to viewer of The Flash TV show, perhaps a little too familiar. There have many so many small screen scenes where Barry promises to bring justice to his imprisoned father that it ceases to be particularly effective. Venditti and Jensen are good writers, and Booth is a good artist, but all the pieces just don't come together in this issue. It's very hard, and really unfair, to judge a story arc based solely on the first issue, and the final scene does point to an interesting new direction in the coming months. It's a bit of rough start for Barry, but the creative deserves another couple of issues to find their footing. Read Full Review

    Brett Booth's artwork is surprisingly dull and uninspired for most of the issue, except when he's drawing action scenes, which are dazzling and kinetic. Read Full Review
