    Joshua Williamson's epic run on The Flash just keeps getting better and better. I look forward to seeing how he resolves the brewing civil war amongst the Rogues and what repercussions this will have for Barry and his allies. Read Full Review

    By the end of the issue, Barry has to make a decision. He can save Central City. But to do so he has to team up with Glider, Heatwave and the Weather Wizard. Can they be trusted? Williamson and Duce have created another fine issue and I can wait to see where this ends up. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Dec 11, 2019

    Williamson has had over eighty issues to show us exactly how to balance the dense plotting of an event storyline with a more character-driven take, and as this title marches on towards 100, it remains one of the most consistently entertaining books in DC's lineup. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Dec 11, 2019

    Williamson shows off his talent as this stories continues in this book. It would have been so easy to go forward with the book in the way we all believed it would. However, he took the chance and changed things up on us. It keeps things fresh and allows new stories to be told that weren't available before. It's really masterfully done and I am enjoying the hell out of this book right now. Add some beautiful art to the mix and this is just an all around job well done. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Dec 18, 2019

    Overall, Flash continues at a (excuse me) brisk pace, building on the momentum the title received during Flash: Year One. Big things are coming, and Williamson isnt done yet if you want a Flash who isnt constantly moping around like his TV counterpart has been this season, come check this book out! Read Full Review

    Christian Duce offers some great visuals in this issue. The characters look great and there are some great moments featuring Glider, Weather Wizard and the Flash. I like the way Duce frames a scene and the action was well done. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Olivier Roth Dec 11, 2019

    Outside of the speedsters, I did enjoy Duce’s linework for the supporting characters such as Captain Cold and Glider (less so Weather Wizard). His eye for cinematography in the fight scene was again, pretty good, but I would have liked to see a little bit more. His linework is enhanced by Guerrero’s excellent color work and choices throughout. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Dec 17, 2019

    It's fun to see the hero without his Speed Force, but it's also about time that 'Year of the Villain' ended. There's some good art and story to be found here, though. Read Full Review

    It's a solid issue if hamstrung a little due to its crossover tie-in. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Dec 16, 2019

    All in all, this story arc has been a bit of a slog, and thats unfortunate because Williamson is normally one of the best Flash writers since Geoff Johns. The good news is, this issue has provided some hope for Rogues Reign to turn around. If Williamson can keep his upward momentum steady through the end of the story, he might just be able to save it in the end. Read Full Review
