    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Sep 21, 2021

    The Flash #774 is a fun and fantastic issue. Adams taps into the energy and the positivity of the silver age comics, but with modern writing styles and artwork from Duce. The superheroics that the Flash must partake in are always secondary to the importance of his family and the people around him. Wally is an extremely likable character, leaving the reader with a smile on their face whenever they see him. The art matches the positivity and the energy, resulting in exciting set pieces.

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Sep 22, 2021

    The Flash #774 is the perfect example of why Jeremy Adams is killing it on this series. With so many great titles in the DC lineup currently, it's hard to pick a favourite, but if I had to do so, it would be The Flash. I'd give it a higher score, but our scale only goes up to 5/5.

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Sep 21, 2021

    Like the rest of this run, it feels like it could have come out of a pre-Infinite Crisis time capsule. Whether that's something that'll actually work for you will depend on just how much you love Wally West. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Sep 21, 2021

    Artist Christian Duce navigates the always tricky challenge of making kids not just look like shorter adults. Duce keeps Iris looking youthful while also showing the physical resemblance of her father. Colorist Hi-Fi also sticks to the carefree and fun theme with bright and cheery color choices.

    There's a lot of territory to explore between Wally and his children, Jai and Iris, and while there isn't much here in terms of super speed, we get a good look into what really makes West different from his mentor, Barry Allen. Adams has a keen grip on what makes Wally West work as a character, and while this issue isn't breaking the wheel, it makes for a good, and touching, superhero romp for the new Crimson Speedster.

    COMICON - Tony Thornley Sep 28, 2021

    This is a fun continuation of the new status quo of the Fastest Man Alive. It's a fun exploration of the relationship between father and daughter with a super-villain fight and art that finally fits the story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Sep 21, 2021

    While this run of the Flash has been one of my favorite series that DC's been putting out lately, this issue comes off as a huge disappointment to me as a new villain is introduced in a ridiculous story that just ends up not making much sense overall and sacrificing the effectiveness of this new character and threat. Yeah, you get some great Wally family moments and some great art throughout but the majority of the story felt lackluster. Read Full Review
