    The art in this issue is gorgeous; the lightning bolts, and fast-motion speedster art never gets old for me. Read Full Review

    Williamson continues showing why hes one of DCs brightest stars and the cliffhanger this issue is a real surprise. I cant wait to see where hes going to go next with this story. Read Full Review

    Although I am still not completely sold that Barry's self-worth comes entirely from his powers, it still is an amazingly good story " especially since we get to see Wally taking such a prominent role in the story. Read Full Review

    The Flash #41 continues an intriguing storyline of a man who has lost his defining trait and his dark path to try and regain it. Read Full Review

    The "Perfect Storm" arc continues in The Flash #41 with a strong spotlight for Wally West and the younger members of the Flash family, but is somewhat held back by the fact that Barry Allen continues to make terrible choices that put him and everyone around him in grave danger.

    A great story with some really good action beats. Only issue I have is with Barry regressing from all the progress he's made. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Feb 28, 2018

    Overall, this was a solid issue, and Williamson has built his story up to this point nicely. Every arc he has been working on since he started The Flash, has seemingly been leading up to this one, and more than likely further into the Flash War. Its difficult seeing Barry Allen act so far out of character, but there is no doubt that its happening for a reason, and he is in good hands with Williamson moving forward. Read Full Review

    Joshua Williamson's dense script turns what would, in most stories, be a lifeless filler issue into some fascinating and intense interpersonal dramas. Read Full Review

    It's another fun and entertaining issue of the epic "PERFECT STORM" story arc, and I'm really enjoying it so far. Although the character of Barry seemingly takes a step back or two, Wally West remains to be a character worthy of the Flash mantle. I love Barry Allen as the Flash and he's my favorite speedster, but is time to give the name back to Wally West? That's something I'm sure "Flash War" will address. Read Full Review

    A character-focused issue helps to distinguish the different Flashes while giving only minimal attention to the villains. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 1, 2018

    This series often tests whether it's possible to cram too many speedsters into one book. In this case, I can't help but feel that the notion of Barry having his speed stolen by Gorilla Grodd would carry more weight if he didn't have three different speedster partners ready and waiting to pick up the slack.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Feb 28, 2018

    This issues seemed more intent on retroactive explanations and setup than pushing the story forward and that's a shame.  I can't wait until the Flash War hits, but I also like Grodd who barely appears here.  The art was great, but as a single issue, this was disappointing. Read Full Review

    The artwork by D'Anda and Guerrero seems oddly off, even ignoring D'Anda's obvious panel recycling. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Feb 28, 2018

    In conclusion, the issue was really a mixed bag. The art by D'Anda is fantastic but feels dragged down by the writing and plot. There is also a lot less focus on the villain in this issue, which I think hurts the overall story. Read Full Review
