    Only two issues in, and Flash Forward has already delivered the one thing I most wanted to get from it. This issue should remove any doubt that Lobdell is the man to redeem Wally West. I can hardly wait for the next issue to arrive. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Oct 16, 2019

    Stories involving the DC multiverse have a tendency to be really good or really bad. Because of the nature of the stories, it makes the creative teams have to swing for the fences. This means that the readers either get to read a home run or a strike out. This series thus far has taken a different approach, instead focusing on the character development of Wally instead of worrying about cosmic threats and alternate realities. It succeeds with this approach by choosing a focus and sticking to it. The multiverse has never seemed so easy. Read Full Review

    Lobdell didnt have the easiest gig in restoring Wally back to prominence, but this issue shows he was the right writer for the gig. Maybe everyone wont be able to forget Heroes in Crisis, but Flash Forward is doing a solid job distancing Wally away from it. Read Full Review

    Brett Booth nails it with the art in this issue. The action sequences are exciting and both the characters and backgrounds look amazing. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Neilan Adams Oct 17, 2019

    This book may have some flaws, but its heart is in the right place. Wally has to become a hero once more and his story needs to be told. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Cody White Oct 23, 2019

    Flash Forward #2(Lobdell, Booth, Rapmund, Guerrero) dives further into the Multiverse but provides very little in terms of answers to Wally's importance or a sense of direction. Read Full Review

    Forces Of Geek - Lenny Schwartz Oct 16, 2019

    Like I said before, Lobdell doesn't have a handle on the Wally West character. I wanted to know where he is emotionally. But unfortunately, any hopes of that is run over immediately. Read Full Review

    It would have been a mostly forgettable issue if it wasn't for the final page " which brings back some characters that fans have been anticipating since DC Rebirth, and promises to elevate the emotional aspects of Wally's quest to a new level. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Oct 16, 2019

    While I really enjoyed the art in this issue, I felt the storytelling was lacking because beyond two big fight scenes and a interesting cliffhanger, there really wasn't anything to this issue and we're still left wondering what Wally is doing pointing a stick at darkness and how this darkness is spreading in the first place.  Read Full Review

    Flash Forward is shoddily assembled, but it's greater sin is being dull. Read Full Review

    This six issue miniseries continues to spin its wheels with its nebulous direction, and this speedster is running out of time to tell a concrete, meaningful story. Read Full Review
