    This was a joy to read from the first page to the last. It was almost like a throwback book, with a fantastically light tone that entertained throughout, with sparkling dialogue and nods to both the past and the future. I'm not sure there's anyone writing anywhere who dials up better banter than Adams. The art by Fernando Pasarin and Matt Ryan is a thing of beauty, with very simple layouts but perfect execution. Lovely clean line art, something I also enjoy. In both word and picture this issue excelled. It allowed long time fans like me a bit of nostalgia wallowing, and also gave new would-be fans a good jumping on point. It had, to use the terrible clich, something for everyone. Read Full Review

    The Flash has always been among my favourite titles. And the restoration of Wally West has made it it the favourite. I have absolutely loved every minute of Adams' first year on the title and I hope he sticks around for many more. Read Full Review

    If youve been skipping this title for some reason this is likely to be the one to make you a huge fan. This is the kind of issue DC should make widely available for Free Comic Book Day. Read Full Review

    This comic run just crackles with energy. It is so much fun seeing Wally West back and bringing all the joy and positivity that comics and the world needs. Ace finally seems to have a logical place now and hopefully this portends the beginning of a more interesting characterization for him. Read Full Review

    THE FLASH by Adams has this lighthearted vibe that's fun for all ages with an almost Saturday Morning Cartoon feeling from the 80s and 90s. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 19, 2022

    The Flashes have so much more time than any other hero and how they use it is a great depiction of each one's personality. This is also the best use of Wallace in a long time, as he's been in some iffy runs for a while. I'm hoping this isn't the last we see of the two Kid Flashes teaming uptheir family connection is really unexplored, and this issue shows there's a lot of potential there. Read Full Review

    Jeremy Adams has a firm grip on the Scarlet Speedster of Central City and the relationships he holds, and I hope that Wally remains in the driver's seat for some time to come, along with artist Fernando Pasarin. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 19, 2022

    Even with some odd interactions between our cousin speedsters, this issue is a lot of fun that continues the Flash Family feel that I've come to love from this book, and hopefully Kid-Flash's appearance here is only a prelude of things to come..... which I'm all about. The art is great and I can't wait to find out what Warden Wolf is up to with Blacksmith and Girder being allowed out and about. Read Full Review
