    Even if you are not already reading the Flash right now but have perhaps been enjoying the TV show or the character in other media, I highly recommend checking this issue out. It's sometimes frightening, often brutal but always well worth the read. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Manny Gomez Jun 15, 2017

    Man did this issue really amp up the tension, suspense, violence, and horror. On one side, we have the conclusion of a great and classic feeling superhero story with the Flash and GL team-up. And then we have Reverse-Flash. Eboard Thawne has ALWAYS been scary, but his sadism and psychosis in the current Flash run have been absolutely terrifying. Color of Fear is racing toward being a classic Flash story. Here are 11 reasons to read The Flash #24! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Jun 16, 2017

    Carmine di Giandomenico and Pop Mhans show a lot of the pencils (whether they are actual pencils or digital) used for the page. Often Giandomenico reuses elements but does not adjust the width of the lines in close shots. Here instead, we see the thickness of the lines that he uses and the analog quality that they have. Not any comic book artists these days are willing to play with the lines of their figures the way Giandomenico does. It adds a lot of energy to his work. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Jun 14, 2017

    The cliffhanger this issue was a doozy and one that definitely will trigger some feelings for longtime Flash readers. I'm impatiently waiting next issue to see how far Thawne (and Williamson) will take this story. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jun 14, 2017

    A strong issue that is incredibly scary in a "Oh my god he's going to kill us" sort of way. Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Evan Kiick Jun 14, 2017

    The Flash #24 is one of, if not the most, satisfying comics I've ever read. If I didn't know better I'd think I was watching a movie. The pages containing the two simultaneous battles of Barry and Wally are absolutely incredible. And, for the final ingredient of my new night terrors, I have the final page burned into my mind. When I wake up in a cold sweat, Carmine Di Giandomenico and Pop Mhan are the first two people I'm calling. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Jun 14, 2017

    This is a really solid issue both in writing and art. The story continues to be interesting, despite the predictable motives of Thawne. The art is frenetic and gorgeous to look at. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 15, 2017

    Joshua Williamson uses Hal's presence to its fullest, drawing from his own relationship to fear and forcing Barry to confront how fear is the real culprit behind his recent miseries. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 14, 2017

    If you thought this was ever going to be a happy story, then The Flash #24 was the best wake-up call you could ask for. Unsettling doesn't even begin to describe the reminder of just how dangerous it is for a villain like Reverse Flash to be allowed into your personal life. Someone so fast, with little humanity, and struggles even more than Barry to let the past go. Read Full Review

    It's becoming clearer that both The Flash and Zoom figure prominently in the Rebirth mystery. Will Zoom's memories of the pre-Flashpoint universe be key in restoring some of that history? The Flash continues to be a cornerstone of the Rebirth saga. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jun 18, 2017

    The characters are fantastic, the tension is great, and the cliffhanger at the end of this issue really does an effective job at setting the stage for the next part of this arc, which has the potential to turn into one of the best stories of the current Flash run. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 14, 2017

    Joshua Williamson gives readers an issue that hints at some major stuff going down, but also one with a pacing problem.  I wanted more Reverse Flash and less Barry Allen, but at least he wasn't as much of a sad sack as he's been recently.  I loved the combined art of Carmine Di Giandomenico and Pop Mhan and I am really looking forward to seeing this story from here on out.

    Nerd Church Radio - Ariel DuPey Jun 14, 2017

    Williamson has proven time and time again that he knows how to write Flash, but it's hard to hide from some speedster cliches. This story just feels like one that i've read many times before. Williamson does a cool and unique job in framing up the story, but it still felt repetitive. I am very interested in where he takes the plot, and I hope it ends up surprising me. Read Full Review

    The story itself has potential but I can't help feel like it's too predictable. There were no huge surprises I couldn't see coming. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Gary Matos Jun 28, 2017

    Flash 24 may not tread new ground, or add to The Flash mythos in any meaningful way. None the less, Flash 24 is a fun and diverting read. Providing some development between the characters and a good old-fashioned hero V villain showdown. Read Full Review
