About the Author

Geoff Johns is an award-winning writer and one of the most popular contemporary comic book writers today. Johns is the author of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels Aquaman: The Trench, Blackest Night, Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War, Justice League: Origin, Superman: Brainiac and Batman: Earth One which hit number one on the bestseller list. He is also known for transforming Green Lantern into one of the most critically and commercially successful franchises in comics. Johns has written for various other media, including episodes of Smallville, Arrow, and Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, for which he was nominated along with his co-writers for an Emmy. He is the Chief Creative Officer of DC Entertainment and resides in Los Angeles, California.

Ethan Van Sciver has been drawing comics and comic book characters since he was four years old. Back then, DC wouldn't return his phone calls. Now he's working with the best writer, inker, colorist, and editorial team in the business. Persistence is key. At home, Ethan likes to watch terrible old movies, listen to surf music, and play Hot Wheels with his son, Hunter. He blames his expanding waistline on the fabulous gourmet cooking of his wife, Sharis, but admits it's also probably due to a lot of long workdays putting more lines on Sinestro's face and eating cookies.

I thought it was a good storyline that brought the beleivable and long awaited return of Barry Allen to the DC universe. Personally he is my favorite of all the Flashes.

This is a great overall story. It's got all the speed force characters from the last 70 years. It is based on the return of Barry Allen and how he escaped the speed force. Must buy for any flash fans.

Barry Allen died, then a crisis came and he came back to life but things are different and he's out of step with the real world and he has to find out the why of his return and how to re-connect.It's a story to flesh out some of the Flash's story and origin and to work on the background story of the character. Not a bad story but it felt a bit like filler.

Deus ex Machina with retcon, mixed with a hint of overblown Falsh fanservice.Although it's somewhat entertaining, the story is mainly for the Flash fanatics. It's tries to tie every single loose thread up to that moment, while being smothered under the weight of it's own self importance.

The return of Barry Allen was everything I thought it would be except there was too much speed force mojo to take in. While I loved the involvement of the entire Flash family, the history of Barry Allen, and the obvious villain, at times it was difficult to take all of the switches in time and figuring out the hows as opposed to the whys. The art by Ethan Van Sciver was insanely good. Just phenomenal. Overall a good book that was too dense at times. That, and I always enjoyed Wally West over Barry Allen.

Quite short, silly plot and too many characters. Lacks the development of a more intelligent and less emotional plot. I do not recommend reading it
