Super Speed Fist Bump “The Flash” #10 (Review)

Dec 14, 2016

The Flash #12
DC Comics

Written by: Joshua Williamson
Art by: Davide Gianfelice
Colors by: Ivan Plascencia and Christopher Sotomayor

Kid Flash is continuing his training in this issue as he and Barry attempt to stop a possessed Hope O’Dare with the help of The Shade. Complicating matters is the fact that Hope has kidnapped and possessed Iris West as well in her attempt to open a portal from the Shadowland to our world. Wally and Barry are surrounded and the reluctant Kid Flash continues to question the motives and identity of The Flash. As the forces within the darkness continue to grow in strength and capture The Shade, Wally must learn a lesson in trust from his new mentor if they’re ever going to escape the shadows surrounding them.

Williamson’s story is well paced and gives the reader a satisfactory conclusion to the storyline that opens the door to giving Barry some semblance of a balanced life. The artwork by Davide Gianfelice is strong in the foreground characters, giving them a sense of motion that a comic like The Flash needs, but the backgrounds feel lacking in depth.

The Flash #12 has a satisfying conclusion to the story with the hint of things to come. The artwork is good in moments, but can be a little flat in others.
