    Despite the repetitive nature of this issue, I really enjoyed the story. Captain Cold is perhaps my favorite Rogue's Gallery adversary of The Flash. Read Full Review

    Scott McDaniel drops in to handle the issues art and he hasnt missed a beat from his Nightwing heyday. The Flash is a high energy title well suited to McDaniels layout and drawing style making for a very energetic and exciting looking issue. The mystery continues to unfold this issue and Williamson is making this an arc worthy of The Rogues and their latest scheme is already shaping up to be another high point for this series.

    A good story that adds an interesting new dynamic to the Flash mythos with art that both succeeds and falters. Read Full Review

    The Flash was one of the cornerstones of DC's Rebirth era, and seems to be one of their strongest titles as the DCU moves beyond Rebirth. Hopefully we will see Barry back with Iris to fully restore the title to its classic greatness. Read Full Review

    A fun and well done call back to a previous arc, but a completely predictable way to get there. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Dec 27, 2017

    Having read much of Joshua Williamsons Flash, I now understand how he crafts story arcs. He introduces a current conflict and problem that Barry Allen has to deal with before resolving it a few issues later. The pacing is all classic super hero action and surprise revelations that careless readers would have missed but old timers would anticipate. In many of those stories, I fall in between surprise and anticipation. Williamsons entire stories on The Flash are part of one larger canvas but where that leads is anyones guess. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Jericho Wilson Jan 1, 2018

    Josh Williamson turns in another fine script and another entertaining chapter of The Flash. His characterization of Barry Allen remains pitch perfect and I applaud his new take on Captain Cold which is a breath of fresh air. The one problem with this issue was the disappointing fill-in by Scott McDaniel with screwy anatomy and bad lighting which took a lot of oomph out of Williamson's otherwise enjoyable arc.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Dec 27, 2017

    Joshua Williamson puts the fun on hold a bit to push his story forward and while I understand the reasons, I like the fun.  We do get a bit of the Rogues, but this issue is mainly about the plan to capture the Flash.  The plotting, art, and dialogue were all fine, it just didn't have the spark that the last issue had and so I have to score it a bit lower.  Read Full Review

    Superbromovies - Marcos Melendez Dec 28, 2017

    This issue was ok. The characters have always been the strongest aspects of the series and it remains to be true here. Even if the current story feels too familiar and underwhelming at times. This feels like a road block between the more interesting plots such as Meena and Black Hole or even the Wally/Flash relationship. Read Full Review

    Joshua Williamson's command of the characters continues to be fantastic, but this series needs a good, regular artist that can match his writing and it needs it fast. Read Full Review
