    The Garricks are some of those characters who were beloved supporting characters, but haven’t gotten any focus in ages. In only two issues, Adams has already gotten us deeply invested in their characters and their small dramas, as well as built a fascinating larger-scale mysteries. So far, this is definitely my favorite of the three JSA series, but none of them are lacking.

    Jay Garrick: The Flash #2 is an amusing issue that showcases the new adventures of the Garrick family. Seeing an out-of-time Judy experience modern moments is excellent, and now Jay Garrick is the worried-sick scarlet speedster. Jeremy Adams taps into family life perfectly, and the art team of Diego Olotegui and Luis Guerrero display the antics amazingly!

    Judy Garrick, a.k.a. The Boom, is the star of this latest issue, and results in a good portion of enjoyment for readers as she marvels as the wonders of the modern age. Jay, on the other hand, finds himself at a loss thanks to his overprotectiveness, unable to hide his emotions, that are humorously being exhibited at super speed. “Ro-Bear” is a bit too head-scratching as a threat, but Jay Garrick’s newest title does a solid enough job at combining silver age antics with modern storytelling. While this issue does continue to lay the groundwork for the current mystery surrounding the Garrick family, it also falls a little short when it comes to following up on the series’ premiere.

    Major Spoilers

    “About average” is actually the best descriptor for Jay Garrick: The Flash #2. a book where 2023 feels like 1991, 1941 feels like 1970-something, and the title character is actually a member of the supporting cast for his admittedly charismatic daughter. More than a decade out from the revamps of the New 52, many of the brand-new hot characters are entirely forgotten, and I worry that Judy Garrick will be in their shoes 12 years from now if all of her appearances are like this one.
