    The World Of Flashpoint is one of those series that could have just been a dense text only affair with a few pictures that shows us various ways the world has changed. Instead, it focused on Traci 13, showing us the tragedy of her family in multiple forms and how she's trying to do the right thing even as she realizes most adults are just too caught up in their own drama. Though we mostly have her going through the basic journey here where everyone she meets gets a few pages, it works well to nudge some amusing differences between what we know and what this world offers, all while getting her closer to figuring out what it is she needs to do to stop her father. This book has definitely gotten me interested in her character and has me hoping she has an interesting role in the post Flashpoint world. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Blake Petit Jul 13, 2011

    The transformations of each of these characters is intriguing, and leaves you asking questions about just how they got to this state. And that's pretty much what you're supposed to want to know. This doesn't answer the question of just how this quest will factor into the final confrontation of the Thirteens, of course, but that's a question for next issue. Eduardo Francisco does good work, but not great work. Some of the pages and panels are a bit too dark, too heavily inked to be really clear, a frequent problem when I see some artists ink their own line work. But he tells the story clearly, and the new versions of classic characters are all immediately recognizable. It works, and it tells us a lot about the different heroes of the DCU in the world of Flashpoint. Read Full Review

    Rex Ogle deserves credit for taking what could have been a bland, uninteresting concept and adding greater life to it. Perhaps the wider Flashpoint focus detracts from Traci's story, but Ogle has at least ensured that readers will be invested in the outcome of issue #3. Read Full Review

    Clearly, some extra time, pains, and thought had to be put in to make this story work. The best thing you can say about this issue is that the writing and art are not the worst. Read Full Review
