I'm pretty interested in what Snyder and co. have to offer with this, as the mini-stories offered here do a good job of setting the stage for what's to come this year. I'm also optimistic for these tie-ins, because if done right, then we may see a more encompassing event than what we've seen from recent efforts (HiC is more or less exclusive to itself and a couple of tie-ins, and Metal's postgame more

Now, while there is one issue left for King to fix this mess of a story up, it doesn't change the fact that this event was a tremendous failure, from start to finish. The peak of this mess (unless King REALLY outdoes himself with issue #9) comes from this issue's complete bastardization of Wally West. I really don't know what to say in regards to this character arc, aside from it being completely more

The biggest problem that I see from this book as that it may not even have any significant impact on the main continuity of this universe (whereas most events do). Rather, it might just result in one or two characters getting spin-off material, and maybe a follow up title from King, which would, in turn, reveal this series to be one great big vehicle for yet another unremarkable book (not unlike M more
