Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The Flash Vol.8 finds Zoom plotting against Barry and Wally. Wally is struggling after escaping the speed force and trying to recover memories. Time travel and suffering the effects of the Flash point, the Flashes take off and race as each tries to do what he thinks is necessary. The art looks like a throwback to 80's or 90's graphics. The story is fast paced and action-packed with a guest appearances from the Justice League for a page turning good time. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.
The Flash Vol 8: Flash War describes the human feelings driving some of the Flash Family to despair. The holiday season is when you get together with your family and remember those who were taken too soon. The Flash Family is no different. Wally has the holiday blues and is missing his family especially his twin children, Jai and Irey. Hunter Zolomon, aka Zoom, exploits Wally’s feeling to his own ends. Like most, or at least my, family gatherings, the relatives begin to squabble. However, if you’re a superhero, that leads to a Flash War. There isn’t much action in The Flash Vol 8: Flash War. It is solely about feelings and emotions. While I like the change of pace, I missed an obvious villain like Gorilla Grodd. However, the art is as bright and clear as always. This volume does set up some interesting things for the next volume, Heroes in Crisis. 4 stars! Thanks to DC Comics and NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
