My attempt to foment a late-in-life love of comic books continues with Volumes 5 and 6 of The Flash. In these collections the scarlet speedster battles the Rogues’ Gallery, meets the Green Lantern, and tries to steer an impressionable Wally West.
Unfortunately neither of these volumes has much in the way of memorable storytelling or imagery. I chose the Flash for my introduction to comics because of my love of the CW television series, which features great characters, memorable villains, and only occasionally takes a plot direction that makes you groan.
I have to be honest. I wasn’t even going to bother reviewing these, as I read them some time ago and had little to say about them, but it’s getting near the end of the year and I want to finish my cannonball.
