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

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

Flash Forward #1

His name is Wally West-and he was the Fastest Man Alive. That is, until the Multiverse was rewritten without him or his family in it. Wally returned and tried to make it work, but the damage was done. Spinning out of the events of HEROES IN CRISIS, follow the man who called himself Flash on an adventure to find redemption in a cosmos that has fough...

Talon1load - he was mentally broken. He wasn’t himself. That was the point. He even mentions that in this issue.

Talon1load - Sep 20, 2019

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.

This issue felt a little shorter than the last two. I love Howard Porter's art, but it wasn't on par with New World Order and it reminds me of Drowned Earth (which was not amazing).

The twist at the end was predictable, and seeing as the solicitations reveal one of the brothers siding with Perpetua, the false hope doesn't have much of an effect due to the guaranteed success of Doom.

Justice League #32

"The Justice Doom War" part three! Things are getting dangerous across the time stream. On one side of time, the Justice League team finds heroic purpose; on the other, it's a future full of chaos and trial. It's the Totality in action. If they can't stop Lex's Legion across all fronts, there may be only one other option: embrace Doom!

Using entire issues to get across a single bit of information is a quintessential example of decompression.

Seeing how King likes to be "deep and profound", the big change is probably Batman realizing he can be happy and still be Batman.

Good start to this mini series. Aaron's run on Thor is one of my favorite ever, and this series is the bittersweet conclusion. The original duo of Ribic and Aaron are back and their writing and art are never better, I love the dialogue boxes that narrate the story like an old folktale.

^^This! And even though it's an interlude, it's still crucial to the overall story. It answers the thesis to King's entire run: can Bruce be happy and still be Batman?

Talon1load - Sep 13, 2019

Bruce HAS been happy before. And this idiotic interlude is only important because King is forcing it to be. It still makes zero sense. Why did those guys even know what could beat Bane? Nothing makes sense.

Like I said in my review:" I have faith that Johns will deliver in issue 12 and if he doesn't, well, read the quote by Theodore Roosevelt, the one that appears at the end of issue 3 of Doomsday Clock. Whatever happens in issue 12 Johns can go to the grave being the one writer to have dared. That's his ace in the hole." Issue 12 is slated for this Nov. We'll just have to wait and see.
