    If you love Bart Allen and if he is your favorite Flash family character, then be sure to grab a box of tissues when you dive into the final issue of Flashpoint: Kid Flash Lost. Gates certainly does do the character justice here, and the issue defines what it means to be a true hero. I really recommend this Flashpoint mini series, and I am interested to see if any of the events that took place here carry over into the "New 52." Also, it was nice to see Wally, at the very least, mentioned in this issue after being missing from comics for so long. Read Full Review

    I do find it interesting that the two pieces of Flashpoint I liked the best were on the periphery of the main story. And now ... the DCnU. Read Full Review

    Gates manages to close a circle here, giving Bart much-needed contact with Barry and a chance to make things right between them before it's all over. The artwork by Oliver Nome is solid, probably the best artwork this series has had yet. Scott Kolins' pages, however, are too thickly inked, too heavy, and in stark contrast to the rest of the pages. Still, it's a worthwhile finale, not just for this miniseries, but for the Flash Family of the 80s, 90s, and 00s. Read Full Review

    But if the series isn't much of a looker, at least it delivered in the home stretch. Geoff Johns now faces some unexpected competition as he closes the door on this era of the Flash family next week. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Sep 26, 2011

    With the way Kid Flash Lost was so disconnected from the rest of Flashpoint as much of it took place in the future, there was a lot to like with the whole down the road ramifications. This one throws us back into the past in a fun but sad way and then just adds more sad weight to it throughout until Bart gets to be the hero. It's not a bad ending for the hero, but you hate to see him have to suffer in any way because of all he has been through. But the convoluted mess that is Bart Allen needed to be moved on with and hopefully something better for him will come down the line. Bart's a great character and one that deserved better overall and this series at least gave him some dignity throughout it and provided us with an outside view of events alongside Barry.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 24, 2011

    Taken as a whole or as a single issue in the flash flood of books in DC's summer event, this book is not one of the best "Flashpoint" tie-ins, but I'm willing to bet it will eventually be one of the "most critical" tie-ins. Of course, I could be proven wrong next week if Geoff Johns boils down the critical highlights of this issue into a smattering of panels in "Flashpoint" #5. All the same, this issue does serve as a nice epilogue to the legacy of the Flash that has served as the spine of the DC Universe since "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Minhquan Nguyen Aug 29, 2011

    With all its importance shifted to another character in another title, this series has no value in itself, hardly deserving any attention on your part. Read Full Review
