    The Flash #770 demonstrates that the title is in good hands with Jeremy Adams. I look forward to seeing what he has planned for Wally once he returns to the present. This story also has me thinking that DC really needs a regular title set in the Golden Age " perhaps even an All-Star Squadron revival. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu May 18, 2021

    Adams creates another clever story that continues to not only impress but gets fans to forget about the Wally West from the past 5-7 years. FLASH #770 permeates Golden Age vibes with subtle humor that's sure to keep you invested until the 70s' throwback ending. It's a fun, quick read with dynamic illustrations that don't disappoint. I strongly recommend fans jumping into this heart-pounding adventure. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Franco Giacomarra May 18, 2021

    Jeremy Adam's clever and eccentric storyline reads like the fun, action-packed, and slightly brain-twisting (read: paradox-filled) ride that the best Flash books often deliver. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Evan Valentine May 19, 2021

    While the issue's story and art are top-notch, the final page has to be one of the best cliffhangers I can think of in recent memory and is almost worth the cost of admission alone. If you're a fan of the Flash, this is an easy buy. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea May 18, 2021

    With great art and look back at the Golden Age I found myself having a great time with this book and the setup of this story did wonders in revitalizing this Quantum Leap concept that we've been dealing with for this arc. This has been the highlight for me in this series post-Future State and I can only hope that it continues this look and feel. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Carlos R. May 18, 2021

    I enjoyed the use of heavy shadows in this book, it works well to add to the mystique that surrounds the Spear and the surrounding evil Jay and Happy face. The only drawback to this is that at the opening Jay looks incredibly menacing, but the story progresses nicely and there’s a great attention to detail. This issue was tons of fun to read and I’m excited to see what more is to come in this arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andrew Roby May 25, 2021

    The Flash is one of those characters whose power-set is just built to explore the time travel trope and the comic concept of the multiverse. Here it's put to great effect. This story with many complex concepts and moving parts are presented as this stunningly simple adventure; that can be enjoyed stand-alone or as part of the greater whole. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 18, 2021

    The Flash #770 is a comic pulsating with adventure. The story is pure fun and very easy to pick and read from any chapter of the current arc. The setting and use of characters in this issue led to exciting circumstances. But Wallys strength as a character needs to return instead of solely being a mouthpiece for exposition. The artists are all talented creators despite the criticism but the book should be picked up if you just need a chaotic time travel story, or are a Flash fan. Read Full Review

    The whole issue was terrific and it was great to see Jay Garrick and the Ray, but most of the reason for my high score was that fantastic final page.

    Spoilers below because I really don’t want to spoil this for anybody.











    Wally is becoming Reverse Flash in the Legion of Doom straight out of Super Friends?! What?!

    They’re going much farther with this it-all-happened idea than I’d ever have imagined. That page blew my mind.

    Golden Age Flash during WWII? I’m in.

    Jay Garrick is recruited by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to join The Ray and go behind German lines to stop Hitler from recovering the Spear of Destiny. Things go sideways when they run into a unit of Nazi led by a super-power draining villain working for the Furer. Captured, and tortured, Jay is near the end when a blast of lightning intervenes and deposit’s Wally West’s consciousness into the body of the first Flash.

    Together, Wally, Ray, and the team of Barry, Oliver, and Mr. Terrific back home must figure out a way to stop Hitler, retrieve the Spear of Destiny, and stop whatever cataclysm the Speed Force is about to create. As Wally says, “...just another day that more

    This was my favorite issue written by Adams so far, but literally every issue is better than the last and looking at what's coming next I won't be surprised, if they keep that trend . The book knows what it is and know what The flash is. It's just fun, exciting and hopeful adventure superhero comics and does not go outside of It's comfort zone, which is good.

    As for the issue I loved Jay and The Ray, their relationship and the progression of it. After Wally came, that thing kind of vanished(not totally) and was replaced mainly by situational comedy, which btw I thought was pretty funny and mostly well-constructed, but also a little repetitive at one point. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of different fun moments in the issue more

    The issue was good and fun, I was going to give it a 7/10, but the last page brought up a fantastic idea, really solid run by Jeremy Adams

    Art is great and suits perfectly to the setting of this issue but the ongoing story got boring already. They didn't even dealt with the "speed force bomb" of this issue in a clever way.

    While it's good to see Jay Garrick in a story set during the war, the plot was just ludicrous. It's right out of the crystal skull. I kind of prefer a little more realism in World War II stories. Still, the art is good and I can tell the next issue will be an interesting one. Is Wally being swept through different periods of the multiverse as well?
    This was mostly an average chapter in what's so far been an interesting story.

    Not as bad as the last couple issues. The cliffhanger might actually lead to something neat.
