In what will be Joshua Williamson’s final story arc on The Flash before he leaves later this year, Finish Line has arrived and is promising to be one hell of a send off.
The book focuses on Eobard Thawne’s antics now that he’s taken over Barry Allen’s body and we see Thawne masquerade as The Flash. It was nice to see Impulse return to the book and finally meet Kid-Flash. Bart is one of the more underrated speedsters, so I loved seeing him take a focal role in the story so early on.
While Barry is stuck in the speed force with Max Mercury and Jesse Quick, we saw a number of speedsters unite to take on Reverse-Flash. With Jay Garrick, joining Bart, Wally and Avery to take on Thawne, the book has an incredibly important atmosphere about it.
This doesn’t just feel like any old story, it feels like one that will have huge long term implications on the future of The Flash’s world.
Williamson’s run has been a bit hit or miss throughout his four years on the book, but it looks like he’ll be exiting the role with one hell of a bang.
