    Luis Guerrero keeps the color focus on red and yellow without letting the pages become a red, yellow and orange symphony. Steve Wands' lettering is crisp with a nice variety of sound effects and font sizes for dialogue emphasis. This was a solid run (pun intended) for this overdue Jay Garrick spotlight. Hopefully this isn't the last time this creative team gets to collaborate. Read Full Review

    Adams, Olortegui, and company give the Garrick family an excellent spotlight that showcases their powers and bond. Just recently reunited and then torn apart by vile Doctor Elemental leads us to an entertaining exploit reminding us that you shouldn't forget about Jay when it comes to Flashes. JSA guest stars, crazy villains, and a wonderful family will explain why the promise of the New Golden Age must continue at DC Comics. Read Full Review

    Jay Garrick: The Flash #6 hits a home run with a climactic finale to stop Dr. Elemental's plans that threaten the world. Flash fans get plenty of big action, emotional beats that hit you in the feels with a sledgehammer, and a pitch-perfect ending. Read Full Review

    This has been one of the best Jay Garrick stories I can remember reading, and the first time he's been at the heart of a story in a long time. Even after he's left the main title, Adams continues to be the best Flash writer since Williamson's heyday. Read Full Review

    It's a good enough series overall, but it never sprints as fast as Adams' past work with Wally West. Read Full Review

    Name me a DC mini-series with a better ending than this one in the past 5 years? I bet you can't honestly tell me one that is better to any meaningful degree. Adams sticks the landing like an Olympic gymnast. This has everything you want. It has Jay pushing himself to the very limit, Adams understands who he is, his ideals, how he would approach things, what his limits are and when he can push those. This issue distills Jay to who he is at his core. He is a hero. He is the Flash and he doesn't go back, he just moves forwards.

    This has action, it has big emotional moments, it has villain arcs set up for the future, it has nice art. I love it. I love everything about this. The final couple of pages dont feel like an 'and its over more

    Jeremy Adams is hands down one of the best writers DC has and I hope they recognize it. This series had a perfect balance of fun, suspense, and heart. The ending with the Flash family at the end was great though it got me upset how Adams was robbed of the main Flash book to make way for Spurrier's awful story.

    A good ending to a good miniseries, but will this actually go anywhere next? DC's JSA miniseries should not be a bunch of one offs.

    Solid ending to a great series. Respect for the golden age heroes is a wonderful thing to see. Too bad about Alan though.
