    The last page legit made me smile like all is right with The Flash. Williamson has made his tenure a labor of love and this arc is shaping up to be a tremendous conclusion to one of the best Flash runs ever. Read Full Review

    I hate that The Flash #759 marks the beginning of the end of Williamson's run, although I know that I'm going to enjoy the Hell out of each issue left. I have know doubt that “Finish Line” will provide the perfect cap to a fantastic run. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Aug 12, 2020

    By the end of the issue, we get to see that the Jay Garrick Flash will have a role in this story. It is a great set up issue and I am excited for the the end. Both the story and the artwork are tops here. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Aug 20, 2020

    Williamson has been coasting for months now, not exactly bringing his A-game. Still, the idea of writing one last Flash story as he prepares to leave must have reinvigorated him, because this single issue gives you everything you could possibly want. It's like he finally realized he had access to one of the coolest cast of characters in all of comicdom, and said, "oh yeah, this was what I should have been doing all along." Surely, his hands have been somewhat tied by editorial, due to long term effects from the New 52 era, but it's so nice to see his Flash book live up to its true potential, even if it's right at the end of his run. If you've been looking for this title to recapture some of its old magic, this is the issue you've been waiting for. Read Full Review

    This is one of the best arcs of Williamson's run and his run is likely to go down as one for the ages. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Aug 20, 2020

    Flash #759 is a gem of a comic, with intense stakes and a sense of urgency that propels the narrative along at a full sprint from start to finish. But it's also a celebration of what makes the Flash unique - and one of the greatest heroes of all time. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Aug 11, 2020

    The Flash finally stops tiptoeing around the story and instead finally lets us sink our teeth into it as we go from 0 to 100 real quick. Are we going to spend time seeing the consequences? Partially, but those scenes serve to further the plot as we make our way through this issue. So many issues feel like we could just skip to the cliffhanger and we would know everything that is going on in the issue. This issue actually decides to be different an add stakes to their story. A real treat to read. Good job creative team. You finally got one. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 11, 2020

    In that fight scene, the fact that Barry flies into the sky like a cartoon character is proof enough this is excessive, over-the-top comic book action. If you're in the right mood for it, would you want it any other way? The Flash #759 shows how the excesses of comics are entertaining as hell. Read Full Review

    Joined by Sandoval and Kollins on art duties, the latest issue is definitely a love letter to the Scarlet Speedster and fits nicely with the epic stories of the likes of Geoff Johns and Mark Waid. Read Full Review

    Sandoval and Kolins do excellent work with the art throughout. The Speed Force scenes are a little weak visually, but the rest of the issue is stunning. The last page of the issue if fantastic and composed brilliantly. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Aug 16, 2020

    The Flash #759 begins the countdown to the end of a long run. It's had it's ups and downs, but the consistently strong art and respect for the history has made it an overall enjoyable run. This issue in particular is somewhat rough around the edges, but it has a strong core that outshines it's more technical flaws. This is a good book, but I hope to see the rest of the arc pull out all the stops and end the series on a higher note than this issue implies.  Read Full Review
