    Barry Allen feels more likeable and energetic than we've seen outside of the Flash TV series on the CW, and Henry continues to build upon that bedrock of geeky Boy Scout characterization with a wildly kinetic style that adds a ton to the Fastest Man Alive's visual vocabulary.

    I cut my teeth on the final issues of The Flash before the original Crisis series and spent years working my way backward hunting up those old books and enjoying them. But I went forward reading from writers like Messner-Loeb and Waid that produced some great stories. Simone has one that fits easily into the older Barry Allen world where it's something that could have been done in the 60s but cleaned up and streamlined for modern sensibilities – all while keeping it to just one issue. I miss the days of one-off books so these releases have been a fantastic thing for me and issues like this reinforce it. Read Full Review

    Flash: Fastest Man Alive #2 does a good job setting the stage for a bigger storyline involving Reverse-Flash. Gail Simone and Clayton Henry did a good job giving us a back-and-forth fight between Flash and Shift. Both characters came out looking strong and built anticipation for the story they are building for future issues of Flash: Fastest Man Alive. Read Full Review
