    If anyone had any lingering doubts that Jeremy Adams has the chops to follow in the footsteps of Joshua Williamson, Mark Waid, or Gardner Fox, then The Flash #771 will alleviate them. Adams clearly understands the Wally West and will treat him with the respect the character deserves. I can't wait to get my hands on The Flash 2021 Annual to see how this storyline wraps up.

    The art was fabulous and timeless with its rendering. Plus, the writing was humorous and witty. Furthermore, the story is engaging and wildly entertaining. Its the FLASH series Ive wanted for years AND it looks like its going to fix some mistakes in the process. What more could you ask for in a comic? This issue is a perfect example of a creative team hitting on all cylinders. Pick this up, add the FLASH to your pull list, and let me know what you think. Adams and his team are on fire!

    The Flash keeps on delivering and making exceptional use of its premise. The tease for next issue focuses on one of my least favorite eras of Wally West, but with this creative team Im optimistic it will be done justice without the crisis. Read Full Review

    I haven't been sold on this run completely yet, but this is easily the best issue of the run and a potential classic for Wally West fans, depending on how this arc comes to an end. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jun 15, 2021

    Despite ending in a place most fans would rather forget,Flash #771 is a textbook example on how to balance fun with pathos in comics. If you've been on the fence about whether Wally could truly return to the spotlight in a way that didn't feel forced or cliched, this is the issue for you. And that's a Flash fact. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jun 15, 2021

    the stakes keep getting raised as we continue our Quantum Leap style of storytelling for the Flash and while I thought that we couldn't get much higher after the previous issue, this chapter's cliffhanger leaves me salivating for what's coming next and the possibility that things could completely change for our hero.  It's just a cool issue all around with some great art and man I can't wait for what this team will bring us next issue.

    The Flash continues its story with a fun chapter slingshotting Wally West throughout the Flash legacy and the West family. It's a lot of fun, and has the potential for setting up a great run to come. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jun 15, 2021

    The Flash #771 is a solid issue for three-quarters of its duration. There is constant enjoyment to be had for this part of the comic as Wallys adventure is always giving us new opportunities. But when it starts to slip it becomes so difficult to keep up with, which is annoying at this stage in the narrative. Any cliffhanger ending loses its impact because the reader is still three pages behind. The art is the biggest selling point of this issue, full of top-class creators, but the dialogue and nostalgia trips to classic stories additionally make this book worth trying. Read Full Review
