On the loose and bent on destruction, Heatwave’s return couldn’t come at a worse time for Wally West. Now that the onetime Kid Flash has retaken the mantle of the Fastest Man Alive, he’s also taken a new job at Mr. Terrific’s Holt Industries. But all of that gets put on the back burner, when the Flash must outrace the flames of one of his greatest foes and figure out why the once-reformed rogue has gone bad again.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 17, 2021

    The Flash #773 brings the speedster back to his best. There is resurgent energy inside this issue that is infectious from the very first page. The first half of this comic, featuring Wally living his life and being himself, plants a beaming smile on the face of the reader. But there are some sadder moments towards the end that are poignant and just as powerful as the positive side to the book. The art creates a visual delight and exciting selection of action as Wallys new life looks set to be in good hands. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Aug 17, 2021

    After years of high-octane Flash stories dedicated to the mythology of the Speed Force, this run is a breath of fresh air. In fact, it's probably the most determinedly old-school comic in DC's stable. Read Full Review

    The Flash #773 may be thin on plot, but it succeeds at its goal of establishing Wally West as the main Flash of the solo series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 17, 2021

    While the action in this book seemed to be standard Flash fair that was pretty basic, it feels like that was never the focus of this issue and because of that, I didn't mind it overall because that led to us seeing the kind of Flash that Wally is and the heart of this issue is what really matters and the heart shined through for me and with that, I really enjoyed the art in this issue as well.

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Aug 17, 2021

    The Flash #773 pads out the action a bit but really hits a home run with its emotional beats. This is the best time to be a Flash fan in over a decade! Read Full Review

    'The Flash' 773 is another terrific showcase for Wally that is filled to the brim with superhero panache and a lot of heart. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Evan Valentine Aug 18, 2021

    The story of Wally West butting heads with Heat Wave comes to a close with a satisfying conclusion, mostly going to show how the Scarlet Speedster runs the role of an "everyman" rather than attempting to punch his way out of a situation. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Aug 23, 2021

    An extremely fun story gets dragged down by stiff and lifeless art. There's still a lot of promise in this run, but it needs much more energetic art. Read Full Review
