Run Riot (192-194). Johns' take on Grodd continues to be one of the scariest around, and this arc does a great job of looking at what Wally is willing to do for his family. And there are lots more fun rogues too [7+/10].

Rogues (195-196). This is pretty much a breather, advancing lots of subplots and offering up a few rogues to fight. The Peek-a-Boo plotline is good, but it's the leadup to Blitz proper that really stands out. Despite being "in-between" issues, Johns continues to make these intere

Okay, yeah, this was a solid, engrossing superhero read, starring The Flash, much of the extended Flash world (including several past and future flashes and assorted relatives) . If you're not familiar it might be a hair overwhelming, but even if that's the case, I think this story is worth pushing through the confusion. It's brutal, and touching, and deeply sad.

The overarching story seems to be about the dangers of being close to a superhero - not only as a family member or loved one, but just

I wish when a new series is announced, or a new writer comes on-board an existing series, they could tell you upfront, "Hey, this writer is going to be on this book for a few years. We know what he has planned. Get on board now." You can see how much more rewarding an experience it is when the writer is building his world, re-introducing old characters, creating new ones, and seeding future plots throughout. Plus they don't always feel the need to write for the trade; they have points they want ...more

This remains the best Flash story I've read. Kolins brings the right energy to the action, while Johns is particularly adept at making you feel that a C-list villain is a AAA threat. I haven't seen energy and threat come together for The Flash since issue 200.

I've never read any Flash before, but I have read Geoff Johns and he's quality. It was a fun, quick read, but the ending confused me a bit. Which, of course, makes me want to read more. Johns did some nice things restoring Green Lantern to glory.

Good stuff. I had never read the origin of the second Zoom/Reverse Flash so this was cool. I really like Wally as a character; he's like Peter Parker but without the complaining. The few Grodd issues felt like filler but I like we're this series is heading.

The incredible climax to the first half of Geoff John's run on the Flash! The introduction of a compelling villain and a shocking shake-up in the West family. Top notch art by Scott Kolins!
