    Basic Plot: Wally West and Barry Allen run to save Wally's kids from the speed force, which has disastrous consequences. Wally is a mess. Trapped in the speed force, having weird hallucinations, hunting for a family that may or may not actually be there, basically angst personified...

    Goofy time travel? Power of love trumps all? Strange new, universe redefinging forces left unused and unexplained? So yeah, a typical rebirth Flash comic. ...

    I?m really confused. I thought Wally had a heart problem. Now he has temporal seizures? I don?t understand what is happening with Rebirth. Everything is so fragmented. Nothing seems consistent from one issue to the next. Also, why is everything the end of the world? Literally! ...

    I don't know if any of the reasons I chose to read this story arc are good ones, but here they are: I wanted to see how much of a mess they had made of the Wally West character with of the various re-boots, retcons, etc. of the past few years. I wanted to see how this was going to ...

    'The Flash, Vol. 8: Flash War' by Joshua Williamson is a big epic story about Barry Allen and Wally West that includes time travel and lost memories. I should have liked it more. Wally West has been found alive, and while he is debating whether to tell Iris, he gets caught up in a t...

    There are elements here that work wonderfully, and ultimately I'm really happy with it, but...man....there are some things that just feel so repetitive...I both love and hate that a Flash wanting to time travel to solve his problems is part of this. In a way, it's entirely human and be...

    Not bad but so tired of time travel, Reverse Flashes, arguing, Barry being apologetic, and yet another DC "war." Plus Porter's art is horrendous. ...

    I received a copy of The Flash Vol. 8 in exchange for a fair and honest review. Wow is there a lot that happens in this volume! Okay, I know. I really shouldn?t be surprised by that, considering it?s the Flash and all. But still! I?m always impressed by how much they?re a...

    [Read as single issues] In the far-flung future, Hunter Zolomon plots the demise of not one but two Flashes, and his scheme sends the Renegades, the law-abiding, future dwelling versions of the Rogues, into the past with one goal ? capture Iris West for the murder of Eobard Thawne...

    I'm done. This is where I leave the Flash far behind. I mean, how many times are they going to do this? Storylines undone, time travel, storylines back!, time travel, undone, travel, back, undone, back, travel, travel, back, undone. Look! A character is back! Just kidding, gone. Just k...

    Started well, and finished well, but it is getting really tiring to keep rehashing stories where one of the Flash's is being petty and the other has to help and then they switch roles, and the new Wallace West is just pretty useless. All he does is add drama. He should go back to worki...

    Aug 21, 2019
    The premise here is the usual trope of two heroes fighting one another... but, in this case, it makes rather more sense than it often does, and they're not really fighting so much as racing one another, and arguing along the way. The focus is mainly on Kid Flash, how he fits into the u...

    Apr 08, 2019
    One of the best decisions of Rebirth was to bring back the twenty(!) years of history of Wally West as the Flash, including much of the best writing ever for the Flash comics, by Geoff Johns and Mark Waid. This volume of The Flash succeeds because it's set right in the middle of that r...

    This thing had it's bigs ups and downs, sadly, they couldn't truly get all the potential that a Wally West rebirth story could get. Lots of throwbacks to the past (the pre-Flashpoint Flash family) but it just isn't enough to throw a lot of nostalgia to get a great story. So far, no...

    I'm a little iffy on this one. Feels very over-hyped to me. In regards to overall impact, this Volume is vital to the current run of The Flash, as well as those that came before. Highlights: - Most of this Volume is about a 4 way battle between Barry, Wally, Reverse-Flash (Eobard Th...

    The Flash War is here, and it's Wally and Barry at each other's throats. This was building up for awhile. I kind of love that Wally has been having his memories slipping back into him. After the loss of not only his wife but kids, we need some freaking story for that. This isn't a ...

    Zoom plots against Barry and Wally, who?s just escaped the SpeedForce. Williamson has plenty of good ideas and he continues to surprise the reader. That said, I cansee a casual reader or Flash occasional reader scratching head while trying to understand flashbacks and back storie...

    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 ...

    This volume really highlights what I don't like about this Flash run. Both Barry and Wally are both shown to be petty and selfish. Neither of them are really heroes at all in this. That's been my problem with Barry Allan in general as part of the New 52. He constantly does whatever he ...

    Illogical and simply poorly written. World: The art I?m sorry to say is fugly, it?s scratchy, the colors are flat and there are no personalities coming out from the art, the tone and feel of the art is 80s budget. The world building is also spotty at best and illogical and stupi...

    One and a half stars for an inanely convoluted advert for the Flash wiki page. Nobody else will be able to follow this dross. It livens up at times when it becomes clear it's a sequel to all the Flashpoint nonsense (for which, of course, seeing how great that publisher-wide reboot was,...

    Flash War collects a pivotal arc in the current Flash series, with major emotional stakes and developments that provide hints of where DC?s overarching story is headed. Wally West has had his memories of the pre-Flashpoint world restored, clashing with his present reality and torm...

    Barry vs Wally, Wally vs Barry and just didnt seem to end. The extra powers were a touch too much. Solid without being great. This run needs to pick up for me to get back enjoying Flash. ...

    For the most part , it has a good premise but didn't hit the mark until the end. It got too convoluted and bogged down with time travel and sci-fi mumbo jumbo when it should have slowed down and focused on the characters. Wally West had literally lost his entire life: his wife, kids, l...

    3.5. I really like this book, a lot of it is nostalgia for me because I grew up in preFlashpoint comics and this is a love letter to that era. The story with Barry and Wally is great, all the high points are in their story and conflict. Zoom can fall a bit flat as his character and mot...

    This volume was excellent. It told such a great story, and the artwork was incredible too. The Flash has been one of my favourite heroes for a few years, and the reverse flash storylines have always intrigued me. In short, this was a joy to read. ...

    It's supposed to be a love letter to Wally West and as a guy who grew up with Wally being "my Flash," I should have liked this. Unfortunately, the plot was choppy and the two main characters were horribly portrayed. Both Barry and Wally act selfishly and betray being the heroes I know ...

    This had a rocky beginning, but it was so good! The book is about: Hunter Zolomon convinced Wally West that he could save his kids if he broke the speed force barrier. When they ran so fast and broke the speed force barrier it released all these new forces. Such as the Saga force, the ...
