The Flash, Volume 5 : Negative - Review

Infused with the Negative Speed Force, we find Barry Allen no longer quite the optimistic person we have known. His outlook is a bit darker, he experiences unexpected side effects from the Negative Speed force, and his body takes a harder toll, setting up a fall from grace when Barry gets a reassignment. I like what Williamson does in trying to grow the Flash title. He's not afraid to push the character into places that we normally would not expect to see with Barry. Some people may like that, some may not. Change is always hard. Overall, Williamson is good with plot.

The Wild Storm, Volume 1 - Review kevin Wed, 03/27/2019 - 11:00

It's been a while since we've seen the characters from the Image Wildstorm imprint in publication. There was the attempt to integrate the characters into the DC Universe at large with The New 52 reboot with some varying success. But for the most part, these characters have been let alone even when the The New 52 evolved into Rebirth. Having Warren Ellis involved to reboot the property as a separate universe is a good decision since it allows readers to get on board without having to worry about everything else within the DC Universe.

Batman / The Flash - The Price - Review

"The Price" is the second go-round for Joshua Williamson to write both Batman and the Flash in a mini crossover, following up on the important and well-received "The Button." The quality that DC is bringing with the creative teams on these mini crossovers has me yearning for a mini/maxi or ongoing series featuring both Batman and the Flash spearheaded by Williamson. Guillem March is handling the art on Batman and Rafa Sandoval is handling The Flash. While both artists' works are fantastic in their own right, having two different artists for a continuous story can be jarring.
