[Comic Review] Flash: Rebirth #1
Review by Chris Beveridge
Mania Grade: C+
After really enjoying the Green Lantern revival, I was hopeful that Johns could pull off the most difficult of returns with Barry Allen coming back into continuity. Unfortunately, everything here takes the wrong tone where it's simply too depressing. Where it should be offering a lot of hope and happiness with Barry finding his place in things now that he's come out of the speed force, it's more about not wasting a moment when you could be fighting crime and dealing with the bad guys. It's a strange message for Barry to have when he in essence says spending time with friends and comrades is wasting time. The depressing story combined with Sciver's artwork which makes everyone look like they're clenched left me just as depressed afterward and wondering what went wrong with the Barry I used to know.
