    The Flash #738 is a perfect example of why the fastest man alive has always been one of my favorite heroes. I love science-fiction stories involving parallel universes, and the Flash has always been DC’s premier Multiversal traveler. So, I’ve been waiting to see Adams exploring that side of the character. If this opening chapter is any indication, then this story will be all that I’ve been hoping for.

    Another great issue. Though technically a Dark Crisis tie-in, it’s not really, its just a solid Flash family story that started well and has a whole lot of promise down the road.

    THE FLASH #783 showcases all the key elements that have made Adams’ FLASH one of the best monthly books at DC COMICS over the past year. No, THE FLASH #783 isn’t really a DARK CRISIS tie-in. So, don’t read it for that at all. However, I couldn’t recommend this issue or series enough. Adams gets the entire FLASH family and basically saved Wally West. He’s used THE FLASH #783 to set up a wild, Ominversal ride that’s sure to be entertaining for the entire family. And, that’s what makes his run so special. THE ENTIRE FAMILY! Adams has found that perfect balance and made this series one that’s fun for all ages with a dynamic feel that won’t disappoint. Jinkies FLASH fans, I’m not saying he SCOOBY-DOOed the series. However, in an era where entertainment is so over-the-top, graphic, sexual, morbid, and oftentimes inappropriate, it’s extremely difficult for a family to find common ground to read or watch something everyone can enjoy. Well guess what, that’s Jeremy Adams’ FLASH! it’s exciting and fun with clever stories that parents and kids can enjoy together. And as usual, Adams continues to work with artists that complement his stories well providing them with the perfect tone and emotion that brings each page to life. FLASH fans who took a hiatus should use this issue as the perfect opportunity to hop back on board. Add this series to your pull list and thank me later.

    The Flash #783 is an exciting first issue in a new story arc that takes big swings and feels like an event-caliber book on its own. The fact that it ties into DC Comics’ big summer event Dark Crisis is only icing on the cake. The Flash is delivering an adventure that doesn’t hold back and is delivering excitement.

    The first ongoing series to tie into Dark Crisis and the only one to have a multi-issue arc, it’s a testament to how good Jeremy Adams’ run on The Flash has been that it actually seems to benefit from crossovers. Wally West is off on a quest to bring Barry Allen home from the Multiverse where we last saw him at the end of Justice League Incarnate—but the multiverse is a tricky place. Mr. Terrific has managed to narrow down Barry’s location to three threads, but with so many counterparts out there, Wally can’t do this alone. So he recruits Wallace, Max Mercury, Jay Garrick, and Jesse Quick to join him on the rescue mission. There’s just one problem—he’s leaving two speedsters out. His kids, who have just gotten better control of their powers, want in, and when Irey wants something she takes it. Two stolen multiversal wristwatches later, the journey through the multiverse just got a lot trickier.

    Navigating Dark Crisis has been tough for many writers, but Adams was up to the challenge. In the process, he continued his hot streak and solidly places The Flash as one of the elite DC books.
