Barry’s case continues, but does it look like he might’ve finally caught a break?

I am really enjoying this story thus far. It’s the perfect amount of complicated and characters. I like the feeling of almost foreboding for Barry’s life that something is going to happen soon – either to him, or to someone he cares about – all because of this case and its franticness.

I am getting a little impatient, however, in waiting for the explanation of the whole ‘Future Flash’ business. It’s interesting, and I love it, but I’m not sure how it ties into the current murder case, and Wally. And while I think that is taking too long, I also found the introduction of the Seborn character and his role in the story a little too quickly.

I continue to enjoy Brett Booth’s pencils on this title, but I think it wouldn’t be as great as it is without Norm Rapmund and Andrew Dalhouse’s inks and colors. The three of them together really are a dream team, and I am enjoying every bit of work they’re putting out right now.

Flash keeps getting later and later to scenes, and I have a feeling Barry’s going to be feeling the pain of that real 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.
