    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Mar 4, 2020

    Regardless of the extra expense, The Flash #750 is definitely more than worth the price of a single copy. With some truly special stories from an amazing lineup of writers and artists, plus some gorgeous pinups from even more amazing artists, this is a fantastic way to mark the Scarlet Speedster's 80th Anniversary.

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Mar 4, 2020

    Though not quite the profound statement it wants to be on all thingsFlash (but it comes close!), issue 750 of this legendary title is still a wonderful testament to the staying power of its titular hero, his legacy, and what the future holds. Spoiler: it's coming at you faster than light! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Mar 4, 2020

    All in all, this was a very fun issue of The Flash and does an amazing job of setting up not only the upcoming storyline in the series, but also what we can expect potentially in the next year. Great job! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Mar 4, 2020

    This is a tight, exciting anniversary issue where there isn't a page of wasted space. There aren't as many iconic Flash creative teams as other properties (partially due to Mark Waid being gone from DC and unlikely to return), but the teams they chose all deliver an excellent tribute to the Flash and his network of speed-powered heroes.

    GWW - Deron Generally Mar 4, 2020

    The final story is a Flash Forward epilogue that will find Wally West in the Mobius Chair witnessing every crisis and event in the DC Universe unfold before him. As he sees the past and present laid out, he can see where things have changed and converged. This prompts him to find Tempus Fuginaut to begin a mission to set things right. A great epilogue to a story that touches on both the legacy of the Flash as a character, but also the character's role in the larger universe. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 9, 2020

    This issue is jam-packed with stuff for Flash fans of all eras, with a little glimpse of 5G, the new Wally West and even the return of Jay Garrick. The downside is that, among these diverse takes are some real clunkers. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Mar 4, 2020

    The Flash takes a gigantic issue to catch up new readers and we have gotten a renumbering for the book. While this may be good for the book as a whole, the writers dropped certain storylines in order for things to go back to a more traditional Flash set up and readers that have been with this book since the beginning may be upset to drop a large amount of money on a giant issue where the main issue inside doesn't really move the story forward. Overall, this wasn't horrible but I just found it incredibly dull. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Mar 4, 2020

    Aside from the short story on Captain Cold, this 750th issue of the Flash is lacking in any value. I hate to say it, but The Flash is dying as a series, despite its fairly successful TV show -- and it's all a product of DC's inability to keep their own universe straight. Almost none of these stories offer anything new to the greater universe for the Flash, and even their new supervillain gets sidelined in favor of boring comic book tropes. Read Full Review

    Man that first story really wanted to be Spectacular Spider-Man 310. The rest of it... was okay. Some better than others.

    Unlike many of the recent 80 page giants that have come out of DC, this one had heart, wasn't disjointed, felt special, and was NOT a money grab. I wish the 1,000th issue of Detective Comics would have been like this, though #999 was great. You won't regret picking this up.

    great work, a true celebration of the character, the edition still offers glimpses of the next story that promises to be very good involving the paradox

    " What kind of man has a museum built in his own honor ? Especially when he is still alive. It's fascinating how the world sees you. How they worship the flash. How they claim to be inspired by you. But that's because they don't know the truth... You are a man who travels to other realities with little to no concern of the ramifications. A careless scourge of the multiverse... Who is followed by crisis... Racing through his life... Always moving forward, but never looking back to see what horrors he's left in his wake. You hurt people, your friends, your family--whole worlds--with your actions.... The true legend of the flash... Is one of Nightmares. And it is time you paid for your crimes, flash. "

    Prelude:
    It's basically an anthology issue here at Flash #750. Let's see how these creators go.

    The Good:
    A good start off for "The Flash Age". I'm interested in seeing where this goes.

    LOVED "Beer Run". Absolutely great story about Captain Cold.

    "Why You" was also a cool story.

    "At the Starting Line" was similarly a good story and some of the new timeline.

    I really liked "Flash Forward: Epilogue" and can't wait to see where things go from there.

    The Bad:
    Man, I really didn't like Wolfman's story.

    Conclusion:
    Asides from one story, I loved this issue. A great celebration of the Flash, albeit slightly brief.

    "No more emo Barry"

    If the prelude in #88 and this issue are any indications The Flash Age might be a fun story arc. Paradox might prove to be an entertaining villain, although his look is a tad generic, and with Godspeed back things definitely will not be boring. Of course, because of the damn solicitations, that I won't read ever again, I know where things are going for him. Why solicitations have to spoil things, huh?

    The epilogue for Flash Forward was also quite enjoyable and will lead directly to those Generation one-shots. I hope this whole initiative will work, I really do. I'm worried that if it doesn't DC might go bye-bye. And that would be just wrong.

    As for the rest of the stories. None of them re more

    Ugh another step down after WW anniversary issue. At least we got 2 stories with Wally. It's telling something when the bad guy speech is somerhing i agree with. Flash forward also sucked, hat does it mean. Jay story was fine, Wolfman was meh.
