The Flash, Issue 7
“Run with me”
This has been one of my favorite series since the rebirth relaunch. I haven’t had a chance to read much of Joshua Williamson’s (the writer of this book) work before this series, but I’m definitely going to be checking out more of his catalog. He does a really good job using the speed powers in this story: how the speed force is a character of its own, and what it would be like to have these powers. The way Godspeed brutally takes out the criminal of central city is impeccable.
The art on this book is fantastic! Carmine Di Giandomenico kills it yet again in this issue. The way he draws the use of the speed force is incredible; the movement and flow of this comic is so amazingly smooth. I have been a fan of Di Giandomenico since his run during the Spiderman noir days.
I was planning on picking this up regardless since flash is becoming one of my favorite heroes right now, but when I heard that Di Giandomenico was going to be on this book—well, that’s what really got me excited for this comic.
As the story arc nears its end, this issue was the perfect blend of solid writing and amazing art to really cap off an awesome seven issues. It also appears they plan to close with a great cliffhanger. I would venture to say the flash might possibly getting some help from someone a lot of the fans have been waiting to see in action since the beginning of the New 52.
So, for all of those reasons and more, (that I can’t bring up due to spoilers) I’m giving this book a solid
5 out of 5 whiskey shots.
