What Jeremy Adams has managed to do, at least with these last several issues I’ve read, is turn The Flash into a fun book about a family of heroes. This, as opposed to a book that’s simply about Barry Allen or Wally West. These Dark Crisis tie-ins in particular have been a nice supplement to the main miniseries.

Wally, Linda and the kids mingle with some heroes from the larger DC Universe in this issue. Robin has a couple of cute interactions with Irey. Amancay Nahuelpan and our colorists also give us a hell of a Justice Society.

We see Barry Allen and Wally West running side by side in their Flash costumes in this issue. And as per usual, we see Barry’s eyes through his mask. But Wally simply has white slits. Why does Barry get his eyes and Wally doesn’t?

These are the things I think about, folks.

“The Search For Barry Allen” didn’t blow me away. But it was a nice little tie-in story with Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths. It had some cool vintage-style art too. This issue in particular was also really cool for Linda Park-West.

In this issue we meet a couple alternate versions of our hero. We’ve got the one I’ll call “Mad Max Flash,” and then another silly amalgamation of Batman and Flash (I’m looking at you, Dark Nights: Metal). Neither of them really do much for me.

I’m pretty content staying in the idealized Silver Age world we spent most of the issue in. I dig how everything is stylized to look retro, and the mystery of it all has me intrigued.

This is my first dive into The Flash in awhile, and for the most part I’m really enjoying it.
