    This wasmy favorite, overall, of all the tie ins for Flashpoint. This book had so manygreat things happening for it, but for me, what made it amazing was that theartist/writer has a genuine love for these characters and it shows in the book.Sure, he kills many of them off, but it doesn't feel malicious. It's the pointof the story. I'd love to see more of the history of this character and theFlashpoint Rogues in a mini-series down the line, but in the form of a prequel,obviously. There's a lot more story that could be told here and I couldn'timagine anyone but Scott Kolins doing it. I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 11, 2011

    Citizen Cold isn't exactly a book that had heavy ties to the main Flashpoint storyline, but I liked seeing Cold taking on the role of a hero of some sort and getting into it with the Rogues. Some were interesting like Mirror Master with what he had going on but others like Trickster had an amusing role and the Pied Piper comes into it strong here in a neat way as well. The book was, however, another notch that treated Wally West very poorly by killing him off brutally when something like that just continues to feel like it's insulting the fans over and over going into the relaunch. But even with that, I did enjoy it in a casual way but wish it had more to do with the overall storyline running in the main series. Read Full Review

    The art impresses, though. Where some Flashpoint books have dipped in quality over time, Kolins' work remains bright and clear. The coloring helps the series retain the feel of the previous Flash volume, while Kolins is able to inject an extra layer of darkness to match the gruesome events of the issue. This series will surely leave many readers hoping Kolins will still have a role in the Flash franchise once the new series hits. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 12, 2011

    I didn't care for the downer ending, and there was a trifle too much Iris West worship (even Barry's SUPPORTING cast gets special treatment post-Final Crisis) for my liking, but overall it wasn't a bad issue. Read Full Review
