    Williamson's flash has really been picking up speed since “Year One” and it has reclaimed its rightful place as a cornerstone of the DC lineup. I look forward to seeing how Barry deals with the Rogues and what adventures will come after that. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Dec 2, 2019

    The comic is inventive and it is incredibly well drawn. Williamson goes out on a limb and takes risks consistently. They pay off for the most part. This is a well done comic indeed. Read Full Review

    Im digging this storyline as Williamson continues to take chances with the title. The cliffhanger takes the story to the next level with an interesting twist that should have major repercussions for the book going forward. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 27, 2019

    Flash #83 is a pretty strong issue until a big twist a few pages before the end, which leads to a stunning splash segment showing exactly what happens when Barry takes the collar off " and what has happened to the Speed Force. Read Full Review

    It's been awhile sinceFlash was this good. The plot is engaging, the twists are major, and readers won't know which way to go next by the time they get to the end of this issue! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Nov 27, 2019

    I think what makes me like the art so much in this issue are Sandoval’s collaborators in Tarragona on inks and Prianto on colors. Tarragona’s inks are clean and crisp throughout and really bring out Sandoval’s pencils off the page. This is only enhanced by Prianto’s very vivid choice of colors and having the reds and yellows surrounding Flash and companion in sharp contrast to the icy blues of Captain Cold’s Central City.

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Nov 27, 2019

    This issue takes the world that we established in the previous issue and puts the wheels in motion for a proper storyline. We get a few surprises along the way and we get a sense of how things will be in the coming issues. Granted, the explanations that they give in the issue are very underwhelming but I'll forgive it for now. This issue also ends of a great cliffhanger and gave us some really amazing art. Hard to argue with a recipe like that. Read Full Review

    The saving grace of the issue is Rafa Sandoval's brilliantly detailed and stunning visuals. The art is dramatic and tense with a visual flair that ramps up both. I love the look of this issue and how gorgeous he makes the characters look as the action leaps off the page. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Evan Valentine Nov 27, 2019

    This issue feels like something of an exposition dump to catch Allen up to speed and while the interesting new side effect of what happens when a speedster access a now defunct Speed Force is intriguing, the issue tends to run out of gas throughout. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Dec 6, 2019

    Overall, two issues into this arc, it's just not delivering on its potential. It's been a while since there has been a Rogues story where they were actually a big threat. Unfortunately, any sense of real danger is lost to the "who cares" feeling of its connection to an already-exhausted crossover event. Hopefully, Williamson will use this story to launch into something more meaningful for the Rogues in the near future, or it will be a mighty big waste of these great characters. Read Full Review
