Let me get this out of the way…I loved this issue of THE FLASH! From the sheer number of Easter Eggs in the opening splash page to the discovery of [REDACTED] at the end, this was a great issue. Barry is wishing things could be as they were, but that’s hard after the events of Flash War. Still, Central City is the same, right? Right? Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!
