(Mondays, amiright?) Wally West is back from his adventure to save Barry Allen, but there's no time to celebrate, as a new alien with a penchant for golden belts and trucker hair has added a new sting to the life of the Flash! This stone-cold heart-stopper of an issue will have you screaming "OHMAHGAWD!" as the Scarlet Speedster gets clotheslined in the face by a whole new era of attitude!

    Sometimes an issue doesn't need to have drastic status altering events playing out. It just needs to have that special ability to put a smile on your face from beginning to end. This was a highlight of the week and The Flash creative team deserves a well-earned thunderous applause galaxy wide for this installment. Read Full Review

    It's another win for Adams, who was nearly unknown but has now delivered one of the best Flash runs in recent memoryand the first to let Wally truly shine in well over a decade. Read Full Review

    Moreover, I would be remiss if I didnt also reference the subtle panels involving Dick and Babs, as well as Lobo and Goldstar (speaking of Goldstar where has she been?!?). On top of the insane story and crazy action on display, these throwaway panels were also priceless adding that extra layer to the fun and excitement of The Flash #787. Readers, very little prior knowledge is required to understand this issue. Its the perfect time to get on board with The Flash and add this series to your pull list. Check out The Flash #787 now and give Adams style a test drive to see what you think. I do not doubt that youll love it along with this issue. Let me know what you think, have a great week, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    This book really was a pleasant break from the death and gloom going on in other comics. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Oct 18, 2022

    The Flash #787 is a great comic to add to your buy pile, even if you haven't been keeping up with The Flash. Adams continues to show the Flash-family unit as a wholesome one your whole family can relate to while offering big sci-fi ideas that are over the top and fun. DC Comics can often feel overly dark and depressing, but Adams continues to show Flash's optimistic and bright side and the DC Comics universe. Read Full Review

    While The Flash might not be the very best series in DC's roster, it goes a long way toward preserving a sense of whimsy that might be missing from a lot of comics these days. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Oct 18, 2022

    The Flash #787 is glorious madness. This comic feels like a time-out issue after long story arcs and events, allowing for a gap before the next one with an incredibly fun adventure. It captures the carefree nature this series can have that makes it so easy to fall in love with. Not every comic needs doom and gloom, some can just be a delight Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 18, 2022

    This issue is a fun little romp that parodies wrestling and because we have such a fun character like Wally West it works really well, not to mention gives you a little inside look at how our Fastest Man Alive is feeling. Does this feel like a particularly great first issue after our Dark Crisis tie-in?...... No, but it's still fun and the art is great. Read Full Review
