The Flash #756 Review

Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artist: Christian Duce

After The Flash & company defeated Paradox in Flash #755, the latest issue kick started a brand new story. One which is already shaping up to be a big one! If you haven’t read the book yet then here is your SPOILER warning.

The Flash #756 revolved around Barry dealing with the loss of Godspeed and reacting to Reverse-Flash’s betrayal, while simultaneously following Eobard Thawne as he puts together his own ‘Reverse-Flash family’.

The book did a brilliant job of emphasizing how dangerous Thawne was and really played up the fact that his latest plan is a pretty big one. Williamson’s latest tale feels important, it feels game changing.

Seeing Thawne travel back in time to various points of Williamson’s run and recruiting villains from their previous story arcs is a move I absolutely loved.

The revelation that the Tornado Twins are going to be involved left the book on a huge note and has me eagerly anticipating the next issue. If the first issue of this new story is anything to go by, we’re about to see some of Williamson’s best work during his Flash run.

The art throughout the book was stunning as well and Duce did a fantastic job! With Williamson’s Flash run coming to an end shortly, it’s safe to say he’s planning on going out with one hell of a bang.

  1. Thawne NOT stabbing everyone in the back would have been the true shock, LOL.

    This storyline has potential IF it’s done right. DC (esp Geoff Johns) gets carried away with ideas sometimes. Case and point the idea of a Sinestro Corp morphing into (to quote Lobo), the entire universe farting rainbows, ROFL.

    Team Flash is an interesting paradox to begin with. Barry pretty much was defined as BEING the speed force last I read (it’s been a while), so none of them should really be needed. They sometimes don’t seem to serve much more purpose than the other Z fighters do either; just a way to drag out the fights until Goku arrives and show how evil the villain is.

    Thawne, on the flip side was the ultimate terror on his own, being able to absorb any form of speed or kinetic energy and do anything Barry could, without those pesky morals.

    If I recall correctly, every time he has tried to work with others, impatience and ego destroy the team also, so we’ll see what happens there. 🙂

    1. That Dragon Ball reference was the perfect analogy to describe the Team Flash haha! With it being Williamson’s final story arc I’m anticipating him really going balls to the wall with it and giving us one hell of a story!

      I hope so anyway as his run has been a bit hit or miss. Reverse-Flash will always be Barry’s perfect counterpart and I’m not sure if he’ll work well with the rest of Barry’s rogues gallery, but it should be exciting either way!

      1. Yep. Doesn’t play well with others is at the top of his resume, lol. I’ll only call BS if he somehow recruits Savatar though. They’d never work well together; explosion of egos.
