Fastest Archer Alive reviewed Flash Forward #1 Sep 18, 2019
8.5

Had to write a review because the critic reviews are too low on this in my opinion.

Heroes In Crisis succeeded in humanizing Wally West and showing how massive emotional trauma can affect someone with massive power. And how that might not turn out so good to those closest to him, literally. Unfortunately, due to the lack of focus on Wally West post DC Rebirth, fans weren’t ready to se more

Wally returned and tried to make it work, but the damage was done.

I read Flash War and it honestly made no sense. Barry said he was going to help Wally find his family and then sent him away and never helped. HiC was still shit. There’s just no getting around that. Being broken isn’t an excuse for what King made him do.

Fastest Archer Alive - Sep 20, 2019

Well, you’re not SUPPOSED to like what he did. But given that he was shell shocked and the story was showing how superheroes can have mental damage and stuff, you can’t say it didn’t make sense. So there’s that. Also, Barry doesn’t know HOW to help Wally. That’s why Wally was frustrated. He blamed Barry and Barry couldn’t come up with a solution so he tried to repeat Barry’s mistake. This is all in the comics if you read them.

It’s unbelievable how good this book has been. It feels so important to the Marvel universe at large and it feels like a whole lot is riding on what Silver Surfer will do next. Donny Cates really succeeds in the characterization of Silver Surfer. He’s capable of unbelievable power and just plain cool, and at the same he’s pretty vulnerable right now, both physically and emotionally.

Silver Surfer Black has been one of the most trippy and epic comics I’ve read in a while, and the craziness continues with this issue.

If Norrin Radd has never been one of your go-to characters, this series really makes a case for why he’s one of the all-time classic cosmic characters in Marvel. His adventures are really just on another level. This chapter continues the story of hi more

The bad reviews on here still don’t seem to understand the difference between “plot-driven” and “character-driven.” This issue was all character, and showed more of what Wally and Harley were going through, as well as give a barbarian hunter named Gnaark a spotlight. It’s beautiful, thanks to the revealing dialogue and the amazing art that still hasn’t let up.

Lightheartedness doesn't justify bad writing. 1. Waid and Wieringo's Fantastic Four, Waid's Daredevil, and Fraction's Hawkeye are examples of great writing with lighter tones. 2. See 1.

The West Coast Avengers are BACK and this debut issue was awesome. I’m a huge Hawkeye fan and if you’ve been following Clint Barton and Kate Bishop since Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye, this series should definitely be on your radar. It’s got more superhero shenanigans than their previous series, and it’s a lotta fun. The team lineup is strange but this first issue really sells you on these cha more
