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!
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!!
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."
