“Negative” Part One – Review of THE FLASH #28

Barry’s battle with Eobard Thawne had its mind-shattering conclusion last issue, when [REDACTED] killed Thawne. But, if you thought things were going back to the status quo, you really didn’t catch the ending of that issue. Barry was trapped in Thawne’s Negative Speed Force, and came out of that…changed. We now see a Flash powered by that Negative Speed Force, with everything else in his life also turned upside down. This looks like the start of a great arc for THE FLASH – want to know more?

“Running Scared” Part One – Review of THE FLASH #25

While the Reverse Flash has been one of the Flash’s toughest foes from his first Silver Age appearance, we’ve seen multiple variations on his origin story, ranging from his starting out as a criminal in the future (with Barry stopping him during a trip to the 25th century), to Thawne being the descendant of a long-lost twin, to Thawne’s travel to the past to meet Wally as “Barry Allen”…you get the idea. FLASHPOINT didn’t help that matter, with Thawne’s apparent death and later reappearance in the DCU. Now, in an “Extra-Sized Anniversary Issue” celebrating the latest volume of THE FLASH hitting issue #25, we get the REBIRTH origin…one that ties together many elements of previous origin stories while giving us a fresh twist. Anyone doubt that Joshua Williamson knows his Flash Facts? Not this reviewer…and if you want to know more, just follow us after the jump!
