Category: Reviews — By

Ever since the beginning of this series, we’ve been waiting for this…”The Man In the Yellow Suit”!

“Castaways” – and a sad passing…Review of THE FLASH #36

Category: Reviews — By

Flash36This issue of THE FLASH finds Barry trapped in the Speed Force, future Wally out of the picture (though present Wally does have his moments), and Future Barry taking over in present day Central City. If you thought the big battle between present and future Barry would end this arc, you were very wrong – it’s just the beginning. This issue also represents the last artwork in comics from an excellent illustrator, Andre’ Coelho, who died far too young at age 35.  Coelho took on the “future Barry” pages while Brett Booth handled present Barry’s tale in the Speed Force, in a generally excellent issue of THE FLASH.

And, we see more strangeness surrounding Harrison Wells.  All this, and more, in another excellent episode of THE FLASH!

But, if you think you knew how this one would end…well…you may have another thing coming!
