It’s a race through all of time as the Flash tries to get the upper hand against Eobard Thawne, the Reverse-Flash!  Thawne is faster and more ruthless than Barry, but if Barry can stay just a step ahead of him, maybe the Flash can stop his terrible reign. Will time be on the Scarlet Speedster’s side?!

    Gail Simone and Clayton Henry wrap up their Reverse-Flash story this week, and I was impressed.  I know some readers looked at these repurposed Digital-First books as a stop-gap during this shutdown, but this Flash book deserves more props than that.  This book can stand with Flash's current run, and when Joshua Williamson leaves after his 100th issue, I wouldn't mind seeing Gail Simone take over.   Read Full Review

    It's been fascinating the past decade to watch how popular the Flash has become and how familiar certain elements of its mythos are. Simone works with some of the key pieces here and while I may be tired of Thawne at this point it's a good piece to bring into play for the material that appears in the DC Giants. It connects and clicks and provides the comics view of it with a lot of style and aplomb. Clayton Henry's artwork continues to delight with how dynamic he makes everything and all the action really hits a sweet spot here. There's a lot to love with the look and flow of the book and I'm curious to see where it goes next. Read Full Review
