Given that this story features two Wally Wests and two heroes called The Flash, it ran the risk of becoming confusing in a hurry. Thankfully, Joshua Williams gets to the heart of things equally fast and makes this into a story about people rather than heroes, with the action limited to a brief sequence at the start of the story. It;s touching to see the older Wally West bonding with the younger one and a reminder that being a hero doesn't always mean punching criminals.
I wish I could be as enthusiastic about the artwork. Jorge Cornoa's distorted style seems a poor fit for The Flash, with odd posing and over-inking both frequent problems. Even Ivan Plascencia's usually vibrant colors seem oddly dull when applied to Corona's dark art. It isn't bad but it does seem incongruous.
