    Still, the art is very good, and it's good to see Barry Allen acting like a superhero. For a change. Read Full Review

    The Flash #50 was delayed and while that sucked, it gave me a little more perspective into these "big" issues.  This is one of my favorites even if it doesn't tie things up completely. Van Jensen uses it to show why fans love the Flash and why I have really enjoyed his time on the book.  While I wanted to see more, Jensen gives readers a huge reveal and sets up the book for before and even after Rebirth.  Well done and recommended.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Apr 20, 2016

    While the featured story with Barry Allen's Flash is a by-the-numbers superhero comic, it does end in spectacular fashion, warranting a look. The backup with Wally West is fantastic and worth the price of admission alone. Without the backup this would easily be a 7 at best, but it brings it up a whole grade. Read Full Review

    The Flash #50 flies by and despite finding the “easy way out”, Jensen and crew give us an action packed 50th issue worthy of the Scarlet Speeder. The Flash #50 will showreaderswhyBarry Allen's TheFlash is theunrelenting hero you can't help but love. Read Full Review

    Of the DC Comics double-sized fiftieth issues released over this past month, THE FLASH #50 would probably fall somewhere in the middle of the pack. There's nothing egregiously bad about it, however, there's nothing all that memorable either outside of maybe the Wally backup story. Read Full Review

    The tables have turned as the Rogues join forces with the CCPD to arrest the Flash. That's not a bad status quo reversal to celebrate the series' 50th issue. It certainly makes for a dramatic anniversary issue. Unfortunately, it also feels a bit rushed despite the extended page count. Read Full Review

    With this oversized issue ofThe Flash, Van Jensen delivers the scope of what you would expect from anniversary issue. I just wish it would have been made more apparent as to why Flash was arrested, aside from being a supposed menace to society. Those, like myself, who missed the previous two issues may feel a little lost. Read Full Review

    A by-the-numbers plot with a few too many hands in the art department, making for an only-mostly-okay anniversary issue... Read Full Review
