"NEGATIVE" part two! What's a Rogue to do when The Flash goes bad? Get worse. Operating from behind bars in Iron Heights, the incarcerated Rogues graduate from costumed crooks to true kingpins of crime, unleashing the new villain known as Shrapnel upon the chaotic and unprotected streets of Central City.

    Overall, this is pretty top notch stuff from the Flash team. I feel like we're back on track with this one after the last two disappointing issues. I'm very intrigued to see how the mystery unfolds, as it brings in a new villain for Barry to face. Read Full Review

    THE FLASH #29 isn't the most exciting issue, but it has its engaging moments when it focuses on how Barry Allen's new powers take a toll on his life, work and wellbeing. Some inconsistencies in the art take away a bit from the story, but, for the most part, the art is quite detailed. Read Full Review

    There's been so many great titles to come out of Rebirth, but The Flash has been one of the real highlights and on the strength of this latest storyline, it's going to be up there for the foreseeable future. Read Full Review

    The art was almost as good as the story. Mixing Pop Mhan and Christian Duce does not work though. Their styles are too different and clashed. I prefer Duces pages. His faces are stronger and his figures better shaped. Mhan was gave the few Negative Flash illustration a lot of energy but hes not as great when it comes to illustrating police procedurals!

    Things just keep getting worse for Barry, but it makes for great reading. I eagerly await each issue and have to read it immediately to find out what's happening to Barry. Read Full Review

    A focus on detective work and a minimal amount of moping make this one of the better recent "Flash" issues. Read Full Review

    A good installment that imparts detail on the detective work, but does so in a boring sort of way. Read Full Review

    I'm sorry to say but it seems like The Flash is going a bit downhill. Read Full Review

    While this issue doesn't give us any answers as to Barry's new powers, the biggest problem is we get little to no Flash.  We do get a lot of subpar dialogue and the continuation of a very uninteresting CSI case.  The art is good, but this issue is just a bore. Read Full Review
