    I have consistently enjoyed Joshua Williamson's run on the Flash, the series has gotten even better since the Year One storyline. Seeing a properly hopeful and optimistic Barry is a pure joy. I'm eagerly awaiting to see how the Death of the Speed Force wraps up and also to learn what Williamson has planned for the Rogues Gallery. Read Full Review

    I've enjoyed this arc and with this cliffhanger, Williamson has some fun possible directions he can take it especially if the other Force Users get a boost whenever a rival is killed. Williamson continues 78 issues strong with one of DC's most consistently entertaining books. Read Full Review

    It's maybe a bit too busy to explore all its players, but it's doing a great job of injecting some genuine suspense into the Flash's world. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Sep 11, 2019

    This issue raises the bar for the Flash comic, which was somewhere in the middle, quality wise. This new issue gives us great action, amazing art, interesting characters, and incredible story progression We even get a cliffhanger that has me already thinking about how the future issues will deal with the consequences. I can't wait to read more. 8.0/10 Read Full Review
