Now reunited with his wife, Linda, and their two children, the former Kid Flash begins a new chapter in his life.

Luckily, an old friend may have just the right job for this blue-collar champion.

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jul 20, 2021

    Despite a deus ex machina that subverts the script's initial man-on-the-street fun,Flash #772 is a welcome return to grounded, "this-could-be-you" superheroics. Welcome back, Wally West! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jul 20, 2021

    After last week's The Flash 2021 Annual, where we saw major revelations for Wally West, it's time to pace things back a little bit this issue and have a smaller, more personal look at Wally and his family and the struggles of having to split your time up between super-heroics and getting a paycheck, but with that aspect, we get some interesting setups, a great cliffhanger, and some great art throughout..... I just wish we could have seen a little more getting a job struggles for Wally. Read Full Review

    Conrad delivers some great action in this issue. What makes the visuals more compelling is the great contrast between the action beats and the human stories. Read Full Review

    Wally's new status quo as the Flash is an interesting one, but the Scarlet Speedster could definitely work on slowing down. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jul 20, 2021

    The Flash #772 is a fun fresh start for Wally that is slightly let down by some artistic choices. The plot is exciting and nostalgic, harkening back to a classic Flash comic, and the energy that exudes when the characters are happy in this comic is infectious. But too much exposition and bizarre designs on the main character prevents the comic from really shining. Read Full Review
