One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About The Flash #1

BAD THING: Most of the book is devoted to setting Barry Allen back up in his old job, while emphasizing that the Central City Police Department is at more concerned with looking like they are doing something rather than doing the right thing. And if you missed it the first time, don't worry - the emphasis on quantity of cases over quality of cases and how Barry's methodical approach conflicts with the speed his supervisors desire will be made. Several times. This slows the book down in a way I'd find ironically amusing if it weren't so annoying.

GOOD THING: At least there's one interesting hook at the end of the book.

The Final Verdict: For a book about a costumed hero with super-speed, this book sure does move at a snail's pace. The artwork is decent and there's an interesting twist at the end, but it's not enough to keep me reading. I just got this issue for the free Flash Ring. I don't see any reason to pick up Issue 2.
