The Flash tracks down a new user of the mysterious Sage Force, a young Zandarian spy named Bashir (a.k.a. Psyche), who's just starting to understand his newfound abilities. Here's hoping he's a quick study, because the Flash needs his help against the dual threat known as Gemini, who wants to steal both the Speed and Sage Forces! And whose side is Power-house on when the Strength Force agent shows up to flex her muscle?

    Ive really enjoyed the freedom and new possibilities that have come from the Force Quest arc. Williamson has reinvigorated his run on The Flash in a way we typically only see with a new creative team making this one of DCs most engaging books on the market. Read Full Review

    The Force Quest story arc has maintained my interest throughout because it takes the time to build on the dynamic between Iris and Barry. It also furthers The Force Quest and makes the reader more familiar with the differences between these new Forces. I highly recommend this issue for fans of The Flash and DC comics. Read Full Review

    Jam-packed with potential, this action-filled issue covered a lot of ground whilst managing to hit every note successfully. Read Full Review

    We meet another Force character, and he's another in a list of fun characters that Williamson has recently introduced. The art is fantastic, and I'm genuinely looking forward to reading the next issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jan 16, 2019

    In the end, this was a solid issue that introduced a fun new character to the Flash mythos, but Williamson still isnt quite delivering on the promise of the arc. Based on the title Force Quest, one might expect an epic exploration of the Forces, and a deep journey of self discovery on the part of Barry Allen. Instead, the readers are being given a breezy story that doles out information on the new Forces bit by bit. It leaves you wanting more, and questioning whether Williamson will deliver by the storys end. Read Full Review

    The Force Quest has been an exciting ride, which seems to be getting close to its conclusion. Hopefully the conclusion lives up to the excitement build up so far. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jan 16, 2019

    The book is in flux until we know how Wally's story plays out, and as such, this plot often feels like filler until the next big twist. Read Full Review

    Christian Duce's art saves the day in this issue. Everything looked great. Hopefully, there will be something in the next issue that is worthy of the great art. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Jan 16, 2019

    THE FLASH #62, unfortunately, adds nothing interesting to the mix. It tells a formulaic story that's been done multiple times before and doesn't build upon any of the tropes used. Christian Duce and Luis Guerrero's character designs are interesting, though. However, it's not enough for me to recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Christian Duce also continues to bring a fresh, clean look to the Scarlet Speedster, however, in the lone real bright spot this issue. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Jan 21, 2019

    I have been waiting for something more to happen in this book. Williamson is a capable writer but he isn't really showing it as much as he used to. At the moment, I feel like we are running over the same ground repeatedly. And I I know it can certainly be better than that. Read Full Review

    A solid -- if somewhat pedestrian -- story of a superhuman sting operation gone wrong is hindered by a trio of villains whose costumes are dull and interchangeable. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto Jan 16, 2019

    Overall, I still enjoyed reading this issue. It was a bit lackluster with what went down with Bashir and Barry's will to trust everyone, but the ending twist managed to save the issue. Having this story followFlash War, there were bound to be dilemmas. I just hope it gets better from here. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 17, 2019

    Josh Williamson's wholly solid run on The Flash continues and this one fails to inspire because the twist is completely telegraphed. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Jan 16, 2019

    Just when you thought the Flash was on an upturn, we get an issue like this. One that isn't bad but isn't good either. If anything, it was forgettable and that's probably the worst thing that a book can do. A couple weeks from now, we may remember the bullet points but all the good will this book was building is lost again. I really liked Williamson's run for a long time but now we are stuck on this quest storyline and I can't be less interested. Read Full Review
