    While I hate the Wally was put through the crap he has had to endure through Rebirth and culminating in Heroes in Crisis, I am pleased to see much of the damage has been corrected in Flash Forward. Hopefully, the Generation books will finish the job and return Wally to his family and his role as the Flash. Read Full Review

    Still, he did what he needed to do and saved everyone. But after the last few panels, the question with Wally has to be: will he continue to put the interests of the greater good first, or do he and the Morbius Chair have different plans now. Because Scott Lobdell and Brett Booth did not guarantee anything about Wally's future on the final page of Flash Forward #6. Read Full Review

    Brett Booth is a master at giving every panel a sense of energy and beauty in its details. Not only do the characters look great, but the world around them is filled with beauty and energy. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Edward Wendt Feb 26, 2020

    Flash Forward was a really good series, but the ending just makes it feel as though it is a great story that remains partially untold. The family side of Wally's life is the most satisfying, and Lobdell handled this part well. For the remainder, the story continues from here elsewhere and there is good hope that it could turn into something great, still. For the moment, though, this new version of Wally West is what fans will have to deal with. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Feb 19, 2020

    Lobdell's writing throughout this arc shows just how immersed he is within the character of Wally. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Feb 19, 2020

    This final issue hit most of the right notes for saying goodbye to the previous version of Wally West. I'm not sure this character really squared with what he became in Heroes in Crisis, but I do think it's a fitting tribute to the pre-Flashpoint version of the character. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Feb 19, 2020

    Was this the outcome I was looking for when I first picked up Flash Forward #1? No, but that's not necessarily a bad thing because what we do get is a new status quo for our favorite Flash and the idea that things going forward can be opened up and explored in interesting ways. I loved the art in this issue and while I was happy with this conclusion, I wish that we would have dealt more with what the endgame was throughout the series than really doing nothing for the majority of this mini.

    While not particularly ground breaking, "Flash Forward" #6 does Wally West justice, paving the way for what comes next. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 19, 2020

    With no big bad or even a final battle, artist Brett Booth is similarly handcuffed. At least he can have some fun with spacious double spreads to fake some significant developments. On one end theres a happy ending but with 5G imminent these changes might not amount to much anyway. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Kat Calamia Feb 20, 2020

    He does a solid job at showcasing the large scale that the series sets up to explore, but that's also the problem with Flash Forward's last issue - the story has too much set-up and not enough resolution for a finale. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 24, 2020

    There are a couple of lovely character moments, but overall this issue feels telegraphed and forced and Brett Booth is absolutely the wrong artist for any story based on displaying emotions. Read Full Review

    Each step towards this conclusion has added nothing to the conclusion itself, just another requirement that readers drop three dollars to reach a tie-in to The Flash #750 where they can deposit even more money before the arrival of an appropriately priced Free Comic Book Day issue.
