    This is a very good issue. The conflict between Barry and Eobard is always interesting and it is fun in this. The art is creative and the action is engaging. Read Full Review

    This issue sets up next month's conclusion in a way that I didn't see coming.  Instead of lining everything up for a bully beatdown, Venditti and Jensen set up a very personal story between Barry and his father.  Of course, Zoom and his very upset Crew are still involved so I still expect some fists to be flying and I can't wait to see it all.  Brett Booth and the art team do a really good job of giving this issue a chaotically fast and out of control feeling and I am going to miss them.  At least we get one more issue and I can't wait to read it.

    Flash #46 is definitely the best read in the series in quite some time, but fails to deliver a conclusion in the Zoom storyline that has been so thoroughly arranged. The art is better than the preceding books in the series, but detracts a little from the consistency of the series as youre now left to hope that the art is always this good. Read Full Review

    While not the best book on shelves this week, this issue nicelybridges the TV/ comic bookgap and is easy to enjoy, a "Flash of Two Mediums," if you will. At the very least, you can feast your eyes on the gorgeous images provided by Brett Booth, who happens to be one of my favorite artists of this era. Read Full Review

    A bubblegum meal of fight sequences and bad guys posturing. If you like that sort of thing you'll love this. Read Full Review

    This was the best Flash for a long time, which isn't saying much, but I sincerely enjoyed this issue. I guess this is where the writers wanted to get to with the convoluted and frustrating set-up. Well, we're here now and it delivered. I'm almost a little excited to see what happens next issue.

    I honestly don't why DC is letting Vendetti/Jensen and Booth stay on this book. This book reads like the average mid-90's book, the edgy Marvel kind and not the awesome Mark Waid Flash-kind. There's nothing wrong with trying to copy the show (that's actually a great idea), but this book is so half-assed in it's creativity and consistency that it's mind-boogling that DC isn't trying to hide the fact that they don't give a crap about anyone named Batman. The Flash is the perfect hero to be the next big face of DC, so that they can replace Batman. But it seems like Vendetti and Jansen have no interest in writing this character. Vendetti's work on smaller books such as Etrigan is good, but his Flash/GL output is poor. It's been incredibly hard to follow this run. Not because it's confusing, but because it's really boring. Trying to do a darker take on the Flash isn't a bad idea of done right, but turning the title into a generically-edgy title simply doesn't work. Having the CCPD try and capture the Flash isn't the most original idea, but at least it was done right before. In this book, everyone acts like their in Dan Slott's Superior Spider-Man, since everyone is an illogical moron. The dialogue is incredibly generic and Zoom is wasted here. I just want Venditti and Jensen of the book. The Darkseid War tie-in wasn't perfect, but Rob William's script showed potential for a good Flash story. At least this is Brett Booth's semi-final issue. His work on Nightwing was okay, but his work on the Flash has been poor. It's a faux Jim Lee style that simply doesn't work, partly due to Andrew Dalhouse's coloring. 4.5/10
