The Flash #31

by Batmanaruto on September 27, 2017

Writer: Joshua Williamson
Artist: Neil Googe and Gus Vasquez
Colourist: Ivan Plascencia
Publisher: DC Comics

The previous main arc with the Reverse Flash was so strong, so I was curious to see what Joshua Williamson would do with this new concept of the Negative Flash, and so far I would have to say that it has been just alright.
I have really enjoyed how Williamson writes about the interaction between Barry and his co-workers. It is really well written and the story whilst Barry wasn’t the Flash was really interesting, however the actual flash stuff has been weak.
The previous mini-arc at least focused on Barry’s life, but this previous arc feels like it has been all over the place. Williamson introduces this new villain Bloodwork, who had an interesting backstory, but other than that felt really uninteresting and his motives after Barry found him out, were not clear.
The ending of the book was the strongest part of the book as we find out that both Barry and his colleague are being transferred to Iron Heights Prison. Williamson has been strong on interactions so far so seeing them work together after being transferred should be interested. Also the fact that Wally will be training Barry should be really interesting to read.
