    The Flash has always been among my favorite titles and the restoration of Wally West has made it the favorite. I have absolutely loved every minute of Adams’ first year on the title and I hope he sticks around for many more.

    This has been a really amazing run of The Flash made even more significant since Adams, Pasarin and co. followed a tremendous run by Joshua Williamson. If you’ve been skipping this title for some reason this is likely to be the one to make you a huge fan. This is the kind of issue DC should make widely available for Free Comic Book Day.

    This was a joy to read from the first page to the last. It was almost like a throwback book, with a fantastically light tone that entertained throughout, with sparkling dialogue and nods to both the past and the future. I'm not sure there's anyone writing anywhere who dials up better banter than Adams. The art by Fernando Pasarin and Matt Ryan is a thing of beauty, with very simple layouts but perfect execution. Lovely clean line art, something I also enjoy. In both word and picture this issue excelled. It allowed long time fans like me a bit of nostalgia wallowing, and also gave new would-be fans a good jumping on point. It had, to use the terrible clich, something for everyone.

    This comic run just crackles with energy. It is so much fun seeing Wally West back and bringing all the joy and positivity that comics and the world needs. Ace finally seems to have a logical place now and hopefully this portends the beginning of a more interesting characterization for him.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    THE FLASH #781 displays the time and effort Adams has poured into the comic and the character of Wally West. From humorous language translations to subtle bonding moments with Wallace, Adams has not only fixed the many recent wrongs of Wally West but he’s made THE FLASH fun again. There isn’t a comic like this on the market at any company right now. THE FLASH by Adams has this lighthearted vibe that’s fun for all ages with an almost Saturday Morning Cartoon feeling from the 80s and 90s. Additionally, it’s reminiscent of how I remember classic comics from the same era. The stories aren’t heavy and complicated with every issue trying to epically outdo the next. Adams keeps it simple and fun which is something we all need right now. This is a great time to jump into THE FLASH, All Pedal, and no breaks!
