    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Feb 14, 2019

    With two of DC's heaviest hitters starring together in a story that ties together threads from major storylines across the DCU, this crossover is a major event that is not to be missed. Considering that the last Batman/The Flash crossover gave us the return of Jay Garrick (sort of), I wouldn't skip this one. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Berkowitz Feb 13, 2019

    THE FLASH #64 continues "The Price" with a superb issue. The dramatic moments where Barry remembers Wally really stand out, thanks to Joshua Williamson's terrific plotting and dialogue. Rafa Sandoval is a master at drawing THE FLASH. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Tom Zimm Feb 13, 2019

    For readers who have been keeping up with Heroes in Crisis, this story could be welcoming and serve to pull together loose ends. Some readers, those who have dismissed Heroes in Crisis, will struggle to find a reason to read this 4-part mini. I am of the former and thoroughly enjoyed this book for its emotional base and tension-building action. I highly recommend picking up this book! Read Full Review

    The Price is delivering on another character-driven Flash and Batman team-up and with this issue's cliffhanger, Williamson has me deeply invested. Read Full Review

    It's great stuff. I have no idea what's going to happen next in this crossover. I can't wait though and I'm glad it's only a week between issues. The next chapter can't come fast enough! Read Full Review

    The Brazen Bull - Charlie Chipman Feb 13, 2019

    "The Price of Justice," though only two issues in, is shaping up to be an impressive crossover event that ties two of the DCU's greatest detectives into a conflict driven plot. The Flash (2016-) #64 is well-crafted and makes for a highly-satisfying read. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 13, 2019

    It's tense, dramatic, and certainly drawn well, but the more character-driven tension earlier in the issue is much more dramatic. Still, Williamson is getting the best potential out of the Heroes in Crisis event so far. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Eric Lee Feb 14, 2019

    Williamson is doing a fantastic job pushing multiple threads in the Flash-Batman crossover story. It feels important and relevant to both titles. The latest issue delivers on all fronts with the drama, action, and intrigue with only some minor flaws. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 14, 2019

    The Flash #64 is another interesting next step into what the current standing is between Batman and Flash. Joshua Williamson continues to use everything that has gone on in Heroes In Crisis and other stories related to Batman and Flash to give depth to the character work in this story. As long as the problems around Gotham Girl's character arc are fixed over these last two issues "The Price" can become one of the better crossovers DC Comics has had. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 13, 2019

    I'm digging this story and how it mixes the emotional turmoil of Batman and Flash into a bonafide mystery to solve. The story helps add weight to Tom King's Heroes in Crisis story well further developing one of the more interesting new heroes in the DCU. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Feb 20, 2019

    In the end, this issue was a major improvement over the first part of The Price story, but its still a little uneven tone-wise. At times, it feels like a fun team up, with a thin excuse for its heroes to get together, and then it abruptly reminds you that said heroes are dealing with major losses, and are barely holding it together. Only the upcoming issues will tell if this is a memorable addendum to the terrible events of Heroes In Crisis, or a fruitless filler story. As of now, its leaning towards the latter.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Feb 13, 2019

    Despite how good the dialogue is at times " especially the internal dialogues of Batman and Flash " this story falls short once you examine the details. There are too many instances where the script contradicts itself, the art, or is just so obvious that it's a bit nauseating. If you don't mind spending a few bucks for a few incredibly written lines in a mediocre-at-best narrative, then I guess this issue is for you. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Feb 13, 2019

    The fact that this crossover may factor into King's run on BATMAN as well as HEROES IN CRISIS is kind of aggravating. The storytelling isn't particularly exciting and while the art is good, it has a rushed quality to it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Feb 13, 2019

    This new crossover continues to fall on its face at every given moment. Two heroes engage in small-talk for the majority of this issue without finding out a whole and then they spring a trap. That's it. That's the whole book. Sure, there are some small reveals and one that I think was interesting at least but I can't in good faith give this book any real credit because while the art is very nice to look at, the rest of the book is very bland.

    Surprisingly fantastic, in my eyes. Given that my biggest concern with the previous issue was the piecemeal approach to setting of the story, this issue was incredibly focused. A large part of the narrative dealt with the complexities of repairing friendship after a rupture, and Williamson captured it well. The Gothams made their presence felt and I am looking forward to, rather than apprehensive about, next week's installment.

    Although it is still unclear the role of Gotham Girl in all this as well as where they go each of their actions, the interactions between Flash and Batman are the best and highlight the weakness of their current friendship. The art is great as well as the colors used. As I mentioned in the first part of this mini event, the third and fourth chapters should close with great moments once the bases are more or less established.

    While the artwork and dialogue is pretty good this issue, for a four issue story, we really aren’t getting anything! The story is half over and feel like it just began. The mention of “venom” better trigger something in Batman to at least think of Bane as to if he has a role in this especially what’s been happening with him in his book. The issue kinda makes me think less of Claire due to she isn’t bringing her brother back but trying to make ones of him to come alive. Another thing that is off in the issue was when Barry asked how he likes being married, how the hell does Barry not know Selena left him and wedding never happened?!

    Not bad by any means. Better than the first one.

    Barry and Bruce's dynamic is still great. Reminds me of the Button.

    개쩌는 작화와 톰킹 배트맨 페이즈3를 기대하게 만드는 전개. 솔직히 말하자면 배트맨이 몬스터맨의 밤이후에 왜 고담걸을 방치했는지에 대한 설명이 부족하기도 하지만 충분히 재밌게 읽었다

    Williamson does a great work with the dialogues between Batman and the Flash, the writer explores the process of overcome pain.
    The story itself is good, but it seems like only a pretext.
    The art is good.

    "No s*it, Sherlock"

    Well, this was much better than part one. Both in terms of dialogue and art, especially the art. Not so sure about the story though.

    Josh Williamson was recently doing fine on the Flash, but nowhere near the level, he was at the beginning of the Rebirth. In this issue, however, I felt that spark coming back.
    The story itself is OK, nothing groundbreaking, but it perfectly serves its purpose. Which is being the reason to put Batman and Flash together. I'm going to say that Williamson handles both of them really well. They have great, so-called, chemistry together, good dialogue and they don't sound like one and the same character.
    Flash also nicely sums up Batman or rather King's Batman. more

    Tensions run high on this issue. The Sanctuary nightmare is still not over and it pulls out another victim known as Gotham Girl, who's now the antagonist on this one. Batman and Flash crossover is going well, the tension is palpable between them. The story is simple and though the art looks awesome, it doesn't save the rather compulsive story. But our heroes, in this case, Batman is one to do mistake. Thus making him human.

    Batman comes off as a complete Asshole and Idiot who doesn't finishes his work. He deserves what gotham girl will does to him.

    Flash's forensic skills are often sidelined in favour of his speed. He's fast, we know it, but he's more than that, and this crossover focuses on it a tiny bit. It's still not enough to portray him as a genuinely passionate, knowledgeable and experienced investigator, but at least it's a step in the right direction. Because despite Barry being all about speed, as I said a sentence ago, he's one of the best possible picks to a crossover with Batman. So why does this event fail, if it has all the potential in the world?

    Well, for starters it continues to be rather boring and definitely requires doing extensive homework before picking it up. Necessity to know I Am Gotham would be naturally understandable, since The Price is its dire more

    This was something... I really don't know how Batman hasn't immediately suspected Bane. After all, he's been convinced it's Bane pulling all the strings in Batman for the arc that supposedly takes place before this crossover. I think next issue will explain exactly how Gotham Girl changed from when we last saw her in Batman (and Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, if you count that). This seems very out of place for her. Just like the ending of Batman #50. So are we just going to continue to act like that doesn't need explaining or...?
