    I honestly have not be pleased with this run and this final issue before Rebirth (52 comes out the same day) perfectly encapsulates how I feel about this run. I don’t think the quality has been this low since Bart was Flash and even then they were at least trying new things.

    I don’t want Wally as Kid Flash or another version of the story of Zoom killed Barry’s mom. We get it. I’d like a different story with him now please other than showing up and gloating “Hey Barry, remember that time I killed your mom? Aint I a stinker?” Yeah, how many times have we gotten some version of that either in comics, on TV or animated films since Flash Rebirth in 2009?

    I have high hopes for Josh Williamson (that’s his name, right?) aND hope that he delivers a Flash run full I’d new concepts and inventive ideas.

      I agree. I have found the Van Jensen/Venditti run on Flash to be largely forgettable, and I have no real desire to go back and re-read these issues. That’s pretty sad to me.

      Here’s hoping Williamson can inject some new energy into the character.
