    The Flash isnt a title that can be skipped at this point. It remains consistently strong and earns more goodwill for staying in tune with DCs big crossover event. Read Full Review

    While Night Flash is certainly an intimidating figure, this story has some clever twists and one in particularly calls back to one of the all-time most infamous horror movies. It's a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 16, 2022

    The Flash #785 brings all stories to the finish line and avoids tripping over itself. Adams shows a terrific understanding of structure as he is able to control such a huge plot and a dozen speedsters while having the emotional core shine through. All of this is presented through intelligent and magnificent artistic skills. Read Full Review

    The Flash #785satisfyingly wraps up the search for Barry while setting up a new hope for the heroes in the Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths event. Throw in an Elseworlds Batman/Flash that'll make you want more and it's a good conclusion all around. Read Full Review

    Now, dont let this issue of THE FLASH change your opinion of this creative team. Adams and his crew are still rockstars and deserve your attention in this series. Theyve made THE FLASH series so much better in so many ways. Plus, its hard to put the breaks on YOUR story in order to fit in tie-ins to an event like DARK CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS. Adams worked with the cards he was dealt while trying to stay true to the characterization hes developed. And he most certainly did that. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless!

    Ultimately, there's plenty to enjoy here and it makes for a worthwhile tie-in to Dark Crisis. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 16, 2022

    The Search For Barry Allen comes to an end this issue and while there are parts of this book that didn't feel like they were needed, the parts that mattered did some cool stuff to set up future stories in both The Flash and Dark Crisis and we had some fun moments with our heroes along the way. Yeah, I would have liked more ultimately, but with great art and great depictions of characters, I still find myself enjoying The Flash. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 20, 2022

    It's nice to see the likes of Jay Garrick and Max Mercury again, but the Dark Crisis tie-in feels tenuous and as the issue ends on a very strange note. Read Full Review
