When the world changed and FLASHPOINT began, one hero vanished. Now the question remains: where--or rather when--is Bart Allen? The young speedster races to unravel the tangled web of time and he's joined by an unlikely ally: the otherworld hero Hot Pursuit!

    The question really is where the heck do we go from here? Bart would need to go back in time and stop Flashpoint from happening to reset the right timeline. Could he be the hero of this thing? Or does he somehow get some more chronal protection? Or does he try to recreate his birth within this new timeline? Maybe he is going to flit around the timeline throughout? I have no idea where this is going ... and that is also another hook for me. But really, the character of Kid Flash made this a lot of fun despite all the horror that has bubbled up in Flashpoint. And that was appreciated. Read Full Review

    Time travel is a big favorite of mine and this book gives me a Bart Allen I'm much more familiar with than the one I've seen over the last few years, which gives me hope that we could see him regain a lot of his fun when the relaunch hits in September. This book has some problems at first, but it's to be expected and it does make sense once it comes together, and that's just one of the issues you get when dealing with time travelers and Flash characters in general. Though that part bothered me, I really liked it once we got Bart using his brain and being obvious about things and the revelations that come from it. With pretty much all other Flashpoint books dealing with the present day work and some mild background material, giving us a book dealing with a thousand years in the future is very, very welcome.

    Did it totally blow me away? No. However, it did remind me of something important that I often forget; comics and reading comics and the experience as a whole is supposed to be fun, and that's exactly what Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost is. Read Full Review

    Will "Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost" have anything to do with how "Flashpoint" will conclude? If I was a wagering man (fortunately I'm not) I'd bet no. Does it enrich the overall story for those who are fans of "Flash," though? That it does, and ultimately that's about all you can hope for with a tie-in. For this mini-series, I'm good with that.

    Overall, if you're a fan of Bart Allen you should definitely give this issue a shot, to see what will happen next for the character during this current storyline set in the far future. Unlike almost all of the Flashpoint tie-ins, this one features the present, current version of a DC character, and thus is a better touchstone than the various other mini-series that have recently started up. The art here is more enjoyable than the script, but that can be partly attributed to the over-abundance of obvious uninspired movie references, which interfered with my interest in the series and took me momentarily out of the issue, instead of keeping me riveted and glued to the page.

    This isn't even the strongest Flash-centric Flashpoint tie-in this week, much less the best of the bunch. Read Full Review

    It's too bad that story isn't real, because once Kid Flash is pulled into the real world (and starts disappearing) things get even worse. And that's hard to do when you've got an impressive super-villain base filled with killer robots. Of course it's made infinitely easier if you just steal your plot from The Matrix. Pass.
