"The Death of the Speed Force" claims its first victim, forcing the Flash to reconsider whether the Speed Force is worth saving! But the Flash is unaware of Captain Cold's mission to power up his fellow Rogues, and Snart's next stop is right in the middle of a broken home. When Mirror Master and Golden Glider are at each other's throats, there aren't enough Lex Luthor power-ups in the world to bring them back together...or are there?

    Since taking over The Flash at the dawn of the Rebirth era, Williamson has made this one of my favourite titles of all time, but in the last few months, he has somehow managed to make it even better. Add to this the superlative art from Rafa Sandoval and Jordi Tarragona, this makes The Flash #79 a great read. Read Full Review

    The Flash is comic book comfort food. You can pick it up each issue knowing Williamson is going to deliver the goods and the art treat will always hold up their end with dynamic pages. This arc is finding Williamson especially inspired and how it plays out could have a massive repercussion on the Flash Family. Read Full Review

    I hope Sandoval sticks with this for the long haul. He is an incredible artist who amplifies the story like you wouldn't believe. This is a strong and reliable comic book every time it comes out. Read Full Review

    Sandoval has some impressive and dynamic art in this issue. The art pops off the page and is filled with action and movement. Read Full Review

    Few titles are doing better with the Year of the Villain tie-ins than Flash, which has not only given the Rogues new powers, but used the opportunity of Luthor's offer to explore these workaday villains and their complex relationships. Read Full Review

    A lot stuff happens in this issue, but the plot barely inches forward. Can we PLEASE just get to the forces dying? Read Full Review

    As per usual, we get some amazing art in this issue of the Flash. However, if you were hoping the quality would remain high like the last few issues, you are sadly going to be disappointed. Two-thirds of this book is about one character telling other characters information that we mostly already know. The whole issue is kind of a slog to get through. Thankfully the last bit of this book gives us a really cool twist on the story we are currently telling and adds a new element of the conflict. Without it, this issue might have been a huge waste of time. Read Full Review
