Format: Paperback
This is one of the grittiest Flash stories ever. It is filled with suspense, stunning violence and fabulous artwork. Without giving anything away. It is a tale of vengence, betrayal and tragedy, and should be on every comic book readers must read list. This isn't your father's Flash kids, and it firmly plants the character in the modern world where people die and tragedy haunts every hero's life. For maximum effect, it must be read in one sitting.

I've been a huge fan of The Flash since I was a kid. Geoff Johns writing of the Flash and his entire universe has been nothing short of spectacular. With BLITZ Johns manages to outdo himself!

This is a solid 8 issue printing of a storyline that sees one of Wally West's colleagues become a new version of one of the Flash's oldest villains...PROFESSOR ZOOM. The story is told with solid pacing, dialogue, plotting, and action. Johns writes characters that we want to care about and that we can sympathize with (even when we don't agree with their actions). In some of his earlier Flash TPB's there were a few too many asides for all the supporting cast. This time out Johns keeps it simple with Wally West and Zoom.

It's an exciting fast-paced read!

Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins go all out in their revival of my personal favorite Flash rouge Zoom, the reverse Flash.

If you've read previous volumes in the John?kolins run, you will see the threads they placed be pulled together in what has to be one of the best modern origins of a villian in sometime. But even if you've not read the previous stories, through Johns's deft storytelling ability, you can pick up this volume and not feel overwhelmed, or that you are missing too much of what came before.

This sory is intense and with out giving it away, the resurrection of Zoom will have lasting effects on the Flash and the people in his life from here on out.

I cannot recommend this title highly enough. Read up and good times will follow!!

This is has got to be the best Flash story ever written!!! Geoff Johns knew what he was doing when he wrote this storyline. Under his guidance, "Blitz" would become one of the most important and historical storyline's ever for the Flash and is praised by many comic fans still to this day. And even if your new to the Flash and his history, then this is also the book for you since you basically get the history of Wally West (the current Flash), his wife Linda Park, Jay Garrick (the first Flash), and most of the Rogues to. We're also for the first time introduced to the Flash's arch-enemy and the most deadliest rogue of all: Zoom (literally "the Reserve Flash".) And there's even a guest appearance by two older character's all the fans will love.

Overall, if you are a Flash fan then is a MUST HAVE! Buy it as soon as you can! I recommend it more then even "The Flash Archives."
