COMIC REVIEW: FTN reviews The Flash #31

June 7th, 2014 by Sarah Barclay Comments

Writers: Robert Venditti & Van Jensen

Pencils: Brett Booth

Published by DC Comics

Barry keeps trying to put the pieces together of the mysterious case, but is it at the risk of his personal life?

I’m really enjoying this story thus far, even with all the details not completely explained. And Barry’s new blue digs in the future are totally growing on me. Though, I will admit I’m getting a little impatient as to the why and how he changed in this twenty-year timeline. I also question Barry’s capability of knowingly killing someone, even if they’re a bad guy. He has just never struck me as that kind of person, even if he knew that point in history was going to be changed.

Booth kills it on the pencils, and really does a wonderful job in diversifying his characters. And scruffy Barry Allen should definitely be a thing going forward. Also, he is a champ at facial hair.

When is Barry going to catch a break? Or make it to anything on time? What does it all have to do with Wally? Answers are coming, hopefully soon!

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.
