3.5 stars

I'm a HUGE fan of the tv show, so that may have some bearing on my rating, but I don't think so. This was a pretty decent collection of Television Flash stories. Obviously, this is not going to match up with what is going on in the real Flash comics, nor should it. This is strictly for CW fans who want a bit more of their Barry.
OhmyGodIlovethiskid!

description

Anyway, most of the time I find these sort of tv spin-offs annoying and horribly cheesy. But (again, perhaps due to my love of the show) this time around I was fairly pleased with the graphic novelization of the show.

description

This give a teeny background origin blurb, and then moves on to tell a group of very loosely connected stories about the Flash's life in Central City.

description

The art is sort of all over the place, and although I liked some of it better than others, none of it WOWed me. However, I did like the art with cleaner lines more than the chunky/clunky stuff.

description

I was happy to see that they didn't recap last season's episodes, and instead came up with all new stories to tell, featuring (mostly) all new villains.

description

Some of these guys I'd never even heard of, so I was thinking maybe there are a few new creations in this. But it's also likely that I don't know every single villain in Barry's rogue gallery, so it's quite possible that these might ring a bell to some of you hardcore Flash fans out there.

description

I think I should mention that there is an issue with Felicity Smoak for all of you Arrowheads out there...

description

One of my favorite issues was the one with Amanda Waller & the Suicide Squad. Of course, this does not have the same cast as the movie, so don't go into it expecting to see Harley Quinn. Sorry! Instead you've got Deadshot, Boomerang, Cupid, and King Shark.

description

Oh...and the Suicide Squad issue also includes another Arrow Crossover.

description

All in all, not a bad volume for fans. If you like the show, then this might tide you over till the new episodes come out!

description

I received a digital copy from Netgalley & the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Ha! No problem, I feel the same way. Although, he's definitely NOT older than me. But I'd love to have him for a son.

Mrs. Jeff has instructed me to taze you if you don't put the patches down.
ZZZZZT!


Logan Glad this good! I was really worried that without using villains from the show it would hurt the book but I'm glad it didn't!


Anne No, it was pretty good. Oh, and I forgot to add that they have an issue with Captain Cold and Heatwave!


message 9: by Robert (new)

Robert I also <3 the show muchly. Didn't that finale give you the feels?


message 10: by Anne (new) - rated it 3 stars

Anne I may have teared up...just sayin.


message 11: by Robert (new)

Robert I own that I did. Not once, nor twice, but thrice! (Man card revoked?)


message 12: by Anne (new) - rated it 3 stars

Anne Ha! No, you get to keep your man-card. Every time I watch that show, they do something sappy and sentimental that kicks me in the FEELS. I feel like a moron getting all gooey over Barry and Joe's father/son moments.
*gets Kleenex*
Hang on...*sniffle*

God, I looooove the show. It's literally the only tv show that I watched last year. I usually catch stuff if it comes on Netflix, but I actually sat down and watched the shows! I snuffled and sniffled through several of those episodes, but the finale KILLED me!


message 15: by Sidra (new)
