    This is a highly entertaining and beautifully constructed issue that leads to a huge cliffhanger. What connection is there between The Force Quest, Hunter Zolomon, and other happenings in the DC Universe? I'm not sure, but this issue teases an impending conflict between The Force Wielders that could rattle the foundations of The Multiverse itself! I Highly recommend that fans of DC and The Flash grab this book and the previous issues in The Force Quest to stay up to date. Read Full Review

    It's been a blast reading Williamson expand The Flash's universe beyond the Rogues. With this surprise Force Quest ending, Williamson has set the title on a path with just as much promise as when Geoff Johns kicker off the Sinestro Corps War in Green Lantern. After the fallout from Heroes in Crisis of course. We don't have to wait long as that picks up in The Flash Annual #2, which is out this week as well. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Nikko Soto Jan 30, 2019

    Overall, I really enjoyed this issue. There were moments where I wasn't quite sure where the story arc was going, but it all wrapped up nicely in the end. What really captured my attention was the ending, setting up the story forThe Flash Annual #2. This isn't the last time that we see the Force powers being talked about. Barry will surely be in the fight of his life when the time comes for him to deal with it. Read Full Review

    This was a nice turn of events for this title. I'm enjoying where this is headed and the story possibilities ahead. Hopefully Williamson can keep this train going. This was pretty good. Read Full Review

    However, that's for Barry and us to worry about later, as we all eagerly rush to the Annual to find out more about what's happening with Wally. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - George Chrysostomou Jan 30, 2019

    There is a lot of exposition dump in The Flash #63 and it actually rounds up a lot of the arc with a satisfying conclusion. It's a pity that it doesn't end with the first half of the story. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Jan 30, 2019

    The art by Minkyu Jung is good. There are a couple of good panels in the book, but nothing that really stands out. It's unfortunate because Williamson writes a couple of really good moments that could have been punctuated by dynamic visuals. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Jan 30, 2019

    THE FLASH #63 just doesn't reach the highs that prior arcs reached, especially the FLASH WAR arc. Joshua Williamson is clearly not at his A-game with this arc, and it shows. Minkyu Jung's art, though, is quite a stunning sight. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Jan 30, 2019

    The art was great and the story twist had me excited for what's to come. It's another solid issue of THE FLASH, and I'm becoming more and more impressed with Williamson's growth as a storyteller in this series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Jan 30, 2019

    I hate to do it, I really do. However, this book is terrible. Everything that was hyped up in this storyline was revealed to be harmless or meaningless. Sure, there are some interesting parts and we do get a decent lore dump in the middle of this issue but it's disappointing to have all this buildup and only for it to end this way. This was incredibly disappointing and I wasn't even expecting that much. That's how much this issue falls flat. This book is getting a very familiar score that our readers are quite familiar with.

    It seems like, with the introduction of the various warring forces surrounding The Flash's Speed Force, this title has more or less become a game of giving virtually indistinct powers to a bunch of people and then punching them. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Jan 30, 2019

    In the end, only one word can sum up this issue--disappointment. Yes, there is a new, eyebrow-raising revelation for the Forces in this issue, and yes, Barry finally has to confront some terrible things that have been happening back home in his absence, but none of that has any weight to it. It just breezes over you, like the rest of this story. Read Full Review
