    In the Flash #77, we see Williamson skillfully juggling two storylines, moving the plot forward for both. Barry's clearly about to be put through the wringer, facing one crisis while another is brewing. I've Williamson's work on The Flash, but he has brought the title to a whole new level.

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

    This story, and particularly this issue, has been what this book has been needing for quite a while. Williamson had the makings of a classic Flash story with the introduction of the new Forces, and then he put it on the backburner to tell other stories. Now that hes back on track, this book has become a cant-miss read again. If youre looking for a good time to start reading the Flash, or the perfect time to jump back on, this is the story you have been waiting for. Read Full Review

    The storyline is called "The Death of the Speed Force," so it's anyone's guess. We will find out soon though I'm sure. Right now, I'm just enjoying the ride. Read Full Review

    The Flash is ironically always one of the fastest reads every other week. Williamson packs so much into the story, but almost always ends an issue with that ideal cliffhanger to keep me anxious and ready for the next issue without dragging the story out. Hopefully the new gig on Batman/Superman won't eventually end his run on one of DC's most consistent titles. Read Full Review

    Overall, though, Barry's getting the team back together and it's one of the more entertaining arcs of the series. Read Full Review

    Rafa Sandoval always brings quality work to the art and this issue is no exception. The depiction of Flash in motion is always dynamic and adding other speedsters only enhances the beauty of the visuals. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Sep 3, 2019

    Although it's a pleasure to see this story finally moving forward again, writer Josh Williamson's predictable characterization robs the reader of any meaningful surprises that could have been elicited. Over all, not a bad comic, with solid art from Rafa Sandoval - just one that needs a plot that relies less on things the reader has seen before from this writer. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Aug 28, 2019

    Some gorgeous art and interesting interactions take place in this issue which carries the book for another issue. That said, not a whole lot happens in this book and it deserves some criticism for that. However, I cannot say that you should skip this issue at all. So, the book is still in a good place for now and I'm looking forward to the next issue. Not a whole lot else to say about it. Read Full Review
