In the ever continuing saga of The Flash, Robert Venditti and Van Jensen conclude the most recent arc with the war between The Flash and Eobard Thawne AKA Zoom. As Zoom and his minions take on the Scarlet Speedster in hopes of finally killing the savior of Central City, The Flash manages to find out how to thwart the efforts of his enemies.
Brett Booth’s art is almost dizzying. There is so much detail in his art that it is a wonder how inker Norm Rapmund does not suffer from carpal tunnel. In fact, I believe Booth is taking it as a personal challenge to torture Rapmund.
Venditti and Jensen have a way with words and are an amazing writing team, but for some reason, Barry Allen read a little more like Peter Parker. The Flash seemed too snarky this go-around, but is still one of the most exciting characters in the DC Universe.
This will be missed once Booth is moved to the soon to be named new title, but for now, we have The Flash #46 and the art shall hold us over until then.
