The Flash #759: Review & Rating as Finish Line Kicks Off

Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artist: Rafa Sandoval & Scott Kolins

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.

  1. This definitely could be huge. It could potentially mean that the rest of team flash is going to step into it’s own as opposed to being Z Fighter punching bags until Goku… errr Barry shows up.

    With as many times as Barry’s been in the speed force and given that he’s got the strongest connection to it, don’t yah think he’d have an easier time getting out at this point? 😀

  2. Are you following Donny Cates’ run on Thor with ‘Thor: The Devouring King’? I am interested in the storyline, ‘Immortal Hulk’ and ‘New Mutants.’

    What are your thoughts?

  3. Sounds good. It seems that the Flashes are being tested by more serious threats: Barry Allen is being tested by Eobard Thawne while Wally West was recently tested by the ubiquitousness of Death. This seems to actually be happening in many DC titles at the moment: Superman is suffering a mental test from his strained relationship with his family and Batman is being pushed to the limit in ‘Joker War.’ Some really intense storylines at DC Comics.

    Good stuff!
