    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

    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

    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

    But it feels like this story is losing momentum a bit, repeating the same gimmick without doing anything new with it. 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
