After an accident pushes Wally West into the time stream, the former Kid Flash lands in the body of his onetime partner, Impulse. Now sprinting through the 30th century side by side with the mysterious (and, yeah, ridiculous) Gold Beetle, Wally must uncover what’s causing the destructive explosions that keep propelling him through time and the bodies of other speedsters.

    It's inevitable that any new writer on The Flash is going to suffer comparison to greats like Mark Waid or Joshua Williamson. The Flash #769 shows that Jeremy Adams could potentially meet the high standard set by previous writers of The Flash. Read Full Review

    Im still unsure how long Adams can keep this setup going, but so far The Flash has been a very unexpected and welcome Infinite Frontier spin on the Scarlet Speedsters. With the tease of the next speedster jump, Im hoping Adams and company spend a lengthy time in this upcoming time period. Read Full Review

    Flash #769 doesn't move the plot of "Blink of an Eye" forward much, but is a ridiculous amount of fun. The entire creative team is firing on all cylinders, making this a standout #DCInfiniteFrontier title! Read Full Review

    Adams is helping Wally West fans forget about HEROES IN CRISIS while ushering in a new status quo for the FLASH family that's been missing for quite some time. FLASH #769 is fast, fun, friendly, and full of energy. Lafuente, Peterson, Atiyeh, and Guerrero make this issue bright, vibrant, and powerful. New readers will find these first two installments easy to hop in on while old fans will feel rejuvenated, refreshed, and ready for something finally uplifting for the FLASH family. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 21, 2021

    A really attractive comic with a great story hook and really fun character interactions and dialogue. The Green Arrow/Flash/Mr. Terrific team may be my new favorite trio, and Gold Beetle is a scream. Well worth the price! Read Full Review

    Overall, it's a fun comic but I'm still not sure it's fully working as a Flash comic"especially since I'm not sure who our lead actually is. Read Full Review

    Lafuente and Peterson do a great job with the look and feel of this story. It was a great contrast between the Wally story and the Barry one. Read Full Review

    Despite some lackluster art, "The Flash" #769 continues to establish this new status quo as one of the most fun books of 'Infinite Frontier.' Read Full Review

    Wally's pulling a Quantum Leap through time and doing some Speed Force nonsense to save the day. It's funny and looks great and I found myself really enjoying a Gold Beetle and Wally West team up but going forward I'm going to need some more substance to this story than just a random time period in each issue where something Speed Force related needs to happen.
