COMIC REVIEW: FTN reviews Flash #27

February 6th, 2014 by Sarah Barclay Comments

Writer: Brian Buccellato

Artist: Patrick Zircher

Published by DC Comics

After a few months of history and one-shots, the Flash gets a new storyline started, and this one looks like it’s going to hit a little close to home.

This one was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, from Barry’s excitement that there may be headway to his mother’s murder, to Barry’s father and Darryl being less than enthusiastic about it. It was a great mixture of storytelling and foreboding that Buccellato is so good at. The only disconnect I can see is that this ‘Fletcher’ person was only mentioned on the first and last pages, but nowhere between, so it almost seems like it didn’t have anything to do with the actual story content, even though we know it does. So that was a little odd.

While it seems weird to be reading a Buccellato story without Manapul attached, Zircher definitely filled the shoes left for him. I really, really enjoyed his style. I can’t even nit-pick tiny details I may not have liked, it was all perfectly awesome.

So…an ax to the back really isn’t the best way to be left off, I guess. Somehow, I think Barry will get himself out of it.

Self proclaimed as hilarious, Sarah is a strange mixture of weird human and sports fan. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA (but currently studying photography in Ohio) she spends most of her time running into tables and tripping over herself while waiting for a TARDIS to show up in the courtyard. If not in a tree or receiving medical attention, she can be found on the tweeter-box (@alfredthebatcat) ranting about ice hockey, baseball or her undying love of Dick Grayson.
