The Flash, Vol. 8: Flash War Reviews
There are elements here that work wonderfully, and ultimately I'm really happy with it, but...man....there are some things that just feel so repetitive...I both love and hate that a Flash wanting to time travel to solve his problems is part of this. In a way, it's entirely human and believable and richly explores the characters, but there's also a voice in my head that says HOW MANY TIMES ARE THESE GUYS GOING TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES?!?!? My inability to completely quiet that voice even as the ...more
I’m really confused. I thought Wally had a heart problem. Now he has temporal seizures? I don’t understand what is happening with Rebirth. Everything is so fragmented. Nothing seems consistent from one issue to the next.
Also, why is everything the end of the world? Literally!
I’d be really excited about the no-more-time-travel business, but I doubt it will stick. Because that’s all the Flash does: he runs really fast and ruins timelines.
I have to admit, this is the first Flash comic I have read so far. I absolutely love it, the suspense and anticipation, you would never expect the big reveal. With Barry Allen and Wally west racing to save time, who knows what will happen? All I know is time is running out.
The author did an amazing job designing the comics and writing out the story. I can not wait to read more of his work.
This volume really highlights what I don't like about this Flash run. Both Barry and Wally are both shown to be petty and selfish. Neither of them are really heroes at all in this. That's been my problem with Barry Allan with in general as part of the New 52. He constantly does whatever he wants without thinking about the consequences. Wally West is my Flash after reading those fantastic Mark Waid and Geoff Johns runs in the 90's. The way he grows from a selfish screw-up into a noble hero that u ...more
This had a rocky beginning, but it was so good! The book is about: Hunter Zolomon convinced Wally West that he could save his kids if he broke the speed force barrier. When they ran so fast and broke the speed force barrier it released all these new forces. Such as the Saga force, the Strength force and the Still force. When Wally West released his temporal energy to stop Zoom it stopped time travel. I wasn't planning on giving this book 5 stars but the race was amazing. It was so intense and em ...more
Zoom plots against Barry and Wally, who’s just escaped the Speed Force. Williamson has plenty of good ideas and he continues to surprise the reader. That said, I can see a casual reader or Flash occasional reader scratching head while trying to understand flashbacks and back stories. I’m not thrilled, but I like the direction in which Flash evolves under Williamson and his creative team.
ARC through NetGalley.
The Flash Vol.8 finds Zoom plotting against Barry and Wally. Wally is struggling after escaping the speed force and trying to recover memories. Time travel and suffering the effects of the Flash point, the Flashes take off and race as each tries to do what he thinks is necessary. The art looks like a throwback to 80's or 90's graphics. The story is fast paced and action-packed with a guest appearances from the Justice League for a page turning good time. My voluntary, unbiased review is based up ...more
