Review by ElizaJane
I was so looking forward to this one. Flash is one of my favourite Justice League members. I like his humour and light-heartedness especially. Boy, was I disappointed. Flash here is so serious and there was virtually no humour. For the plot, it was pretty boring for the most part delving into ... sheesh, I read this yesterday and am having a hard time even remembering most of it today. So, the plot delves into how his speed works and whether his brain is as fast as his body. The Mob Rule as bad guys was pretty lame but there is a second storyline that comes into play partway through that perked my interest. Captain Cold shows up and references to certain other Rogue members are made. Yeah! Then a very interesting background story is introduced about Gorilla Grodd. While I didn't like (and can hardly remember) the first part, the second part makes me want to keep going with the series and we'll just have to see how it develops. BTW, this is fantastic art by Manapul which helped me get through the boring parts.
