The Flash #753
The Flash is still trying to figure out the best way to stop Paradox, who’s traveling through time and absorbing Speed Force energy to heighten his powers. Barry Allen has to do some time traveling of his own to stay one step ahead of him while confronting some demons from his past.
That’s even trickier as Eobard Thawne is the only person in recorded history to have defeated Paradox.
Writer Joshua Williamson sets up an intriguing dilemma for The Flash as he has to face his worst day before reaching a conclusion that could prove fateful even if it goes against everything he’s believed in since becoming a superhero.
Howard Porter and Brandon Peterson team up on art and that’s a pairing that doesn’t miss a beat in between the hand-offs. Porter’s art seems rejuvenated since becoming a semi-regular artist on the title while Peterson’s art seems to be at his career peak. Assuming he doesn’t prefer the fill-in jobs, it’s crazy that Peterson isn’t regularly on a title at this point.
The Flash continues to just be a strong read thanks to the creative team’s consistency and another engaging, unpredictable arc.
