    The title of the book does not disappoint. Unlike some of the other mini's, which seem to be more about telling What If stories set in the Flashpoint world, this book actually deal directly with the events of the main series, and promises to have an impact on it as well. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Jul 4, 2011

    While other books show the stories of various heroes and what their lives are like in this world, this one gives us a better look at the events that happened and one of the organizations that's working in secret to stem the tide of destruction and war that's sweeping the world. The conscience of it all comes in Traci 13 as she's had her loss but hasn't lost her humanity and also has glimpses of the pre-Flashpoint world due to her abilities, though she can't understand them. The opening of the book is strong and the character of Traci is one that I could easily see enjoying following on a more regular basis, though more so in this particular world because of what she's been through. The context this book adds to the larger storyline that's unfolding is definitely welcome and it's well done, even with as much as it's trying to get into the amount of pages it has.

    The Flashpoint Universe is still a strange and unfamiliar place, but it's books like this that will help readers feel a little more at home in the setting as the event continues through the summer. Read Full Review

    The characters presented in this issue are less compelling than their "true" counterparts. I'm not sure what role Traci Thirteen is going to play in the resolution of this storyline, but given DC's recent announcement of the ambitious relaunch of their entire line of superhero titles, I think it is safe to say that Traci doesn't quite help put things back the way they once were. Where she puts them and how that affects everything else remains to be seen. Unfortunately, it doesn't remain to be seen with any urgency. Read Full Review
