    Flash: Fastest Man Alive is more serialized than some of the other works out of the DC Giants but I don't mind as it's playing with a kind of streamlined and simplified timeline to engage in some really good stuff. These are all familiar characters but I can imagine them setting some kids imaginations alight or connecting them to the familiarity through the TV show. Simone has a solid voice for Barry here and gives him just enough personality but it's with Thawne that she really shines in getting to play with someone that's a lot more outgoing and charismatic. Clayton Henry and Marcelo Maiolo deliver a great looking book full of energy and I just the combination of the design and color to really give it as much life as it has. Read Full Review

    Flash: Fastest Man Alive #4 was a solid continuation of the Reverse-Flash story Gail Simone is building. Seeing this Reverse-Flash story become a multi-part story is a nice change of pace compared to the other Digital-First comics that have been going with one-shot story structure. This gives the rivalry between Flash and Reverse-Flash greater importance as one issue isn't able to contain how big this battle is. Read Full Review
