    The Flash 2022 Annual is a lot of fun, celebrating trashy romance novels while informing the reader on crucial details about Linda we didn't know. Add in a whopper of a cliffhanger that'll change Wally and Linda's life at the end, and you have yourself a must-buy for super fans of Flash. Read Full Review

    THE FLASH 2022 ANNUAL #1 is a hard comic to review. Yet I think the best summary is this: do you want to read about THE FLASH or do you want a good story? Because if you want a great story, it's certainly there this week. But it's not really about the FLASH. If you're ok with that, THE FLASH 2022 ANNUAL #1 is totally for you. And, I highly recommend giving it a shot. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 30, 2022

    The Flash 2022 Annual #1 is a love story full of warmth. A novel plot concept that uses another story as a way of bringing the best out of the main characters. Lindas book may lack proper stakes, but it carries those same themes of love and fun that this run of the Flash thrives off. This is a comic that isnt afraid to delve deep into romance as Adams really encapsulates the happiness of this pairing. In a dark world, that light is always welcome. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Aug 30, 2022

    While I still enjoyed this issue, the majority of the book that featured what Linda Park's novel is all about left me wishing that we could just have the West Family doing things because whenever this Annual just featured Linda and Wally...... Well, it knocked it out of the park. The art is great throughout, I just wish that we got more of our hero and his newly super-powered wife. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Aug 30, 2022

    Adams teases another major development for Wally at the end of the issue, which could be very interesting if it comes to fruition. This isn't a must-grab to keep up with the major Flash storylines, but it's a nice side story from a writer who clearly enjoys these characters. Read Full Review

    This Annual doesn't break the wheel for Keystone's Finest but it certainly strengthens it. Read Full Review
