    Crisis on Infinite Earths #8. Will we see Bart go back in time trying to get to Barry? Is this a way of Bart fulfilling the legacy of the Flash? Becoming the Flash? So this mini-series continues to rise to the top of the Flashpoint world along with Project Superman. It is such a satisfying and odd mix of despair and humor. That isn't an easy cocktail to make. Add to that the heroism of Patty and this was a very entertaining issue. It makes me lament the 'hinted at but never materialized' Speed Force comic Gates was supposed to write. Read Full Review

    Kid Flash Lost does allow us to have at least one other person besides Barry who knows what's really going on. It's a doubly bad event for him since his 21st century and 31st century worlds are things that have gone horribly awry and the attempts at understanding the past just reinforces that Barry may not exist at all anymore, which is a pretty big blow to him. The pairing with him and Patty works well enough but she doesn't feel like she's critically needed here as there were other ways to get Bart moving that would have worked for his character in a better way. This is still a fun book and I definitely like having another character mixing things up that knows what everything is supposed to be like yet has to deal with such an ominous threat as Braniac. It's one of those series that could make a good standalone Elseworlds style book for quite a few issues. Read Full Review

    The writer definitely deals with a mature issue in this book and manages to successfully give it a youthful perspective. Read Full Review

    Story-wise, this is one of the better Flashpoint spin-offs. The artwork keeps it from being a knockout. Read Full Review

    "Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost" isn't a must-read, but it's an enjoyable read. I wish that didn't make it stand out among most of the "Flashpoint" tie-ins, but Gates and Nome are doing a good job here. In a sea of rapidly diminishing returns, it's nice to see this pair bucking that trend. Read Full Review

    Though problematic, Kid Flash Lost has improved, and there's always the hope that it will improve even further in the final issue. My main hope is that Gates can either make something more of the tension between Bart and Barry or put that plot point to bed. Read Full Review

    You can easily get onboard with the star character, but not with the story, and ultimately, it's the latter that really matters. Read Full Review
