Comic Book Review: The Flash #50 - DC Comics (2016)

Written by Van Jensen

The Flash is under arrest and being taken to Iron Heights Prison.  That's where the action really takes place and we also get the huge reveal of who has been so bent on getting the Flash put away.

This book blew me away.  I loved seeing what happened with Iron Heights prison and that wasn't even as big as the reveal of who the Trickster has been getting his tech from.  Van Jensen has written an amazing story arc and I am looking forward to the next issue.

The art looks fantastic.  This is especially the case once the scene moves to Iron Heights Prison.  I really liked the way the villains were drawn once the story got there.

There was also a bonus story at the end of this book.

Wally West, The Fastest Kid Alive in WWFD

Wally West recognizes he is going through some changes and is hoping to find ways to deal with it.

This was a fun story.  Wally West in gym class and being able to talk to his future self and find out he is a speedster.  This was an absolute joy to read.  Kids discussing what they would do if they had the Flash's powers and Wally getting to use his powers without anyone knowing.

The art looks good too.  All the facial expressions look great, especially when the kids look surprised.
