Art by Minkyu Jung
Colouring by Hi-Fi
Lettering by Steve Wands
This was another solid issue in this arc, which also happens to conclude this "Force Quest" story. This was one of, if not the most, consistent arc in the entire series for me and I had a blast. Joshua Williamson, along with Rafa Sandoval and Christian Duce, introduced four brand-new characters in this arc and they all provided the backbone of the story. I really admire this, and what Williamson is setting up here is truly intriguing.
Minkyu Jung jumps on for an issue here, and I really love Jung's art in general. He did some work on NIGHTWING with Tim Seeley that I just adored, and I think his style fits the Flash world pretty well. Tensions are flying high here and he captured the mood of the characters pretty well. Hi-Fi does good work and their colouring style matches Jung's expression-work.
There's a little bit of a twist in this issue, and I was fairly satisfied with it. It introduces a lot of different story possibilities for Williamson to explore down the line, which is nice since he already has a few dangling threads he needs to address first. Simply put, it's nice knowing that there's a lot of interesting story left to tell in this run. I did have some issues with the ending of this book, as it randomly and very awkwardly tied in with HEROES IN CRISIS. You can imagine how exactly it ties in to the events of that book, so I won't be too specific.
The art was great and the story twist had me excited for what's to come. It's another solid issue of THE FLASH, and I'm becoming more and more impressed with Williamson's growth as a storyteller in this series.
