    Like I said, this probably isnt a terribly important issue, but its a hell of a lot of fun.We don't yet know which (if any) new Flashpoint characters will make the transition to the new DC Universe, but I rather hope the Canterbury Cricket finds a home somewhere. Read Full Review

    Unlike some of the other one shots that worked well for me, this one left me feeling a bit odd about the whole experience. It has some very fun moments and I really liked the Cricket himself with the way his transformation really changed who he was inside as well, or at least brought it out in full, but there's such a poor execution to it all that it has me wondering when Mike Carlin really last wrote something. I had really enjoyed his work as an editor on the Superman titles way back in the day, but this one feels like someone who hadn't written in some time coming back in and forgetting some of how the form works. It's certainly not the worst thing I've read, as there is a lot to like after the first few pages, but it's just awkward scripting and pacing in general from start to finish. Read Full Review

    With a story as inconsequential and disinteresting as the Catholic saint that supposedly gave him his powers, The Canterbury Cricket #1 is simply not worth your time or money. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Chad Nevett Jul 3, 2011

    If comic companies want people to stop mocking and dismissing event tie-in books, they need to stop publishing muddled, sloppy, awful comics like "Flashpoint: The Canterbury Cricket" #1. It's a complete waste of time, money, and paper. Read Full Review
