    I've always liked The Flash, but not as much as some other titles. However, since Jeremy Adams has taken over as writer, it's now my absolute favourite. DC needs to do all they can to make sure he stays on the title for as long as possible, as I'm especially looking forward to the inevitable guest-appearance of Maxine's father, Animal Man.

    Jeremy Adams is continuing to prove himself one of DC's best new talents in a while with his Flash run, which brings Wally West and his family back to the center of the franchise. Read Full Review

    This has been a fun arc so far and Adams keeps taking some surprising twists that keep it unpredictable in setting up a big confrontation with Eclipso. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Jan 25, 2022

    The art in this issue was pretty decent and you'll get your action quota out of the Wally West bits of the story where he takes on those possessed by Eclipso but like the last issue, the real fun of the book is seeing Jai West and his action log going after his sister Irey and her new friend Maxine Baker. It's weird elements like this that make me wish we had a book simply about Wally and Linda's kids. Hopefully going forward both stories will come together and every bit of the book will shine.

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jan 25, 2022

    Flash#778 continues to feel like a story that belonged in another comic somehow wandered into this one, and lost its own sense of purpose along the way. Having a small army of artists doesn't help with what feels like an already-unfocused narrative. I don't want to sound ungrateful as this is absolutely the best Flash readers have had in years, but something about "Vengeance is Mine!" simply isn't clicking. Read Full Review

    There are ways to balance the stories of the Silver Age with some modern flair and I feel that this latest story of the Scarlet Speedster wasn't able to live up to its predecessors, especially when it came to the side plot following Wally and Linda's kids. Read Full Review

    I liked this one more than last issue. It's probably that all the exposition is out of the way. Crazy to say, I even enjoyed the subplot with the kids.

    The Jai/Irey section is still a lot of fun, but the Gemworld section is tedious af. I could give less of a shit about Gemworld so I'm pretty biased anyways.

    I wish Pasarin could have done the full issue, but Brent Peeples did a fine job filling in.

    Calculator's presence is slightly paradoxical after reading this week's issue of Deathstroke Inc, but who knows what's happening in that book anyways.

    The issue is fun, like Adams has a very charming way of writing Wally and I liked that he put him in a situation, that's very unusual for him, involving magic. Also the idea, that Wally can't be corrupted at this moment is actually great and fits with the places, the character is supposed to be now, after gaining his family back and in general reappreciating how great being the flash is. On paper things should perfect for him and that only reaffirms that he feels the same. Especially after Heroes in Crisis, him being back to his peak mental health is great. Surely that's the highlight of the whole arc. Just Wally being his hopeful and pure self.

    All in all, the issue is perfectly serviceable, like dialogue is good, the things wit more

    A little less fun than usual.
