    But Why Tho? - William Tucker May 2, 2023

    The Flash #798 is a book of new lives and new horizons. The birth of a child in a fictional world can be significant in many ways, even more so when they are the child of a superhero. The baby becomes a target, a plot device, but also the very beginning of a new legacy hero. The story can move forward in incredibly dramatic ways with a joyful time travel romp that uses all of the runs loose threads, hinting that they will all be wrapped up soon. Read Full Review

    That could be why everyone dove into Flash #798 head-first. The expedited nature of this issue just made the story seem like it was being told directly to you instead of gradually uncovered through character interactions and discovery. Dont get me wrong, I think there is certainly potential to be had in this story. However, the Flash #798 could have easily been separated into two, if not three issues and paced more effectively.
