    King's desire to portray mental health and the heavy impact hero-ing has on it even when it means pissing people off is one of his strongest quality as a writer. We're so often sold the idea that heroes don't break, or break a little and then stand up again just as strong. The ones who loose it are villains, who need to be stopped at all costs. It's refreshing to read a story where even the happiest hero looses it. And the fact that it's because his suffering lead him to give himself another bur King's desire to portray mental health and the heavy impact hero-ing has on it even when it means pissing people off is one of his strongest quality as a writer.

It's refreshing to read a story where even the happiest hero looses it. And the fact that it's because his suffering lead him to give himself another burden, to overload all of his emotions, is so realistic and fitting. The psychotic ideas (people lying to him, the world being against him even through its kindness, etc.), the addiction to the chamber's scenes, the obsession with control and the way he goes back to careful planification after a flicker of "insanity"... A lot of readers might be mad about this decision, but there's no denying it's masterful.

    The big reveal is going to leave a lot of people divided. So we find out who the killer was, the motive, and how it all happened. With that happening it also leads to some major moments in the end. I think the reasoning actually makes sense. The exploring of loss and loneliness actually makes sense. The execution there worked well for me, though that may vary with the reader. I also liked the art again because it is amazing. The twist of how to alter things or change things seems a little cheap The big reveal is going to leave a lot of people divided.

I can see the emotional buttons they wanted to press and, for some like myself, they were. For most, this issue will result in anger, confusion and a feeling of disappointment. But knowing Wally's story in the greater DC universe and how certain things have impacted him, I think it is a painfully beautiful issue.

The only problem is that we could have seen more of Wally's emotional trauma in this story. We could have had a huge build up. If this hadn't been set up as a mystery arc, this reveal might have been handled so much better and been a true landmark storyline involving mental illness and PTSD. DC dropped the ball, for the most part. But I give this 5 stars for what it is trying to be, what it could have been,and what is still represents despite its flaws.

    3 1/2 stars, though I'm conflicted on what to rate it. I don't love the confession in this issue, nor do I understand his motivations (if he was only trying to cover up what he did, then why confess?). But I'm also assuming that they'll explain more in the next issue. A lot of this issue was more dramatic reveal and buildup, though it obviously provided vital information to explain how they got from a to b. 3 1/2 stars, though I'm conflicted on what to rate it.

    All I kept thinking was, “cop-out!”. Murder/Suicide? Really? I’ve had hopes for this story, but with one issue left, there doesn’t seem like a lot of room for redemption. It’s a shame, because the art is so good and yo until now Kong’s writing has been superb.

    I was expecting more especially due to Dc adding more issues. I still love thr artwork in this. Wish they had stuck to the 6 issues.

    I can't lie I am not fully on board with what happened in this issue, which is basically a giant confession of the killer. It's quite insane to read and surprising. However the one part that I do feel is the fact that it makes sense. Why this character did what they did makes sense to me. It's tragic and unbearable to watch but it's not something that's unworldly or improbable. It was always there, waiting to happen and it happens in the most unfortunate way. I won't give it a full five stars be I can't lie I am not fully on board with what happened in this issue, which is basically a giant confession of the killer.

I won't give it a full five stars because I am still not sure if this sits right with me but as of now it mostly does. Also Gerads and Moore do it again. Such beautiful art and an excellent use of visual space in telling a story. The flow between panels is sharp and smoothly done and I could tell what was happening even without dialogue. A divisive issue but really well written and drawn. I almost don't wanna read the finale, though, but I will.

    Be careful what you wish for. While this does FINALLY move the plot forward, it does so in a very, very unbelievable way. I am not going to give it away, but after reading the adventures of (*&^(*%$ it is highly unlikely that he would go to such lengths to cover up an accident to the extent that he does. Yet, these are the days when Marvel made Captain America evil, in a great Secret Empire story where it made sense. It was just an accident, and (*&^) would have known it and not gone on to cover Be careful what you wish for.

I know the X Men ruined Batman's wedding issue, but to obviously copy Marvel in the hapless ill conceived way is just showing how desperate DC is for big ideas these days. What's next, is Superman's son going to turn out to be a serial killer? Hey DC, rather than rip Marvel back off, don't sink to their level.

    So I remember when I was a kid and Barry Allen disappeared into the Speed Force and it was a shocker, but Wally then took over. Wally West was my Flash growing up. I hate what they’ve done to Wally in this series! I hate this series because it just relied on a lot of shock and awe and strange pair-ups! It’s an awkward series that seems it’s trying too hard to be Watchmen! There’s some beautiful art in it, but tons of filler that was stretched into something that could’ve been like 6 issues max.

We still don’t know much about Sanctuary and how it was built. Now, I suppose they’ll be milking the HIC spin-offs for a while!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I want expecting that to go in that direction, but Wally's background in forensics makes sense with being able to cover this up so well. Depending on how issue 9 resolves this, I might like or dislike this run. I can understand Wally having the initial reaction of covering his crime up, but I'm hoping the guilt still eventually get him to fess up.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Pretty lame confession issue. Endlessly annoyed by DC's habit of "hooking" a reader into a series, then calling in C-list artists to finish off the series. We didn't even get the obligatory few pages drawn by the original artist. Art stinks, story stinks. I could care less about the Flash and he is the only character in this entire issue. Boo! Pretty lame confession issue.

    Pretty sure the big reveal was revealed two issues back, but okay. The result may not have been a shocker, but the delivery was kind of brutal.

    The great art by Mitch Gerads is keeping this series interesting for me. I am pretty disappointed in the story though....
