Honestly, I just can't see what Tom King saw in this one. This book has been such a downer, from start to finish, but for all the wrong reasons. This isn't some sort of provocative, grounded event like Identity Crisis, nor does this serve as an effective study/meditation on mental health. All we got was a flash in the pan at the start, with an opening plot line that we were already made aware of m more

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
