    The Good News: This one’s written by Mark Waid and not Geoff Johns.The Bad News: It doesn’t make that much of a difference.The Speed Force, that mind numbing made-up super science defying idea that makes the Flash so fast, is something I have a hard time getting my head around, like bidets or Jeff Goldblum fans or tofu or Cheez Whiz on a cheese steak. It just hurts my head to read about it. Wally West, Flash #3, has twins, who are linked to it, so now it’s double my pain. Add an invasion by a race of tentacle creatures brought on by some Speed Force mumbo jumbo and I’m reaching for some pain meds.This volume isn’t an excruciating read all the time. Waid explores West’s family dynamic and shines a spotlight on his wife and two children, Jai and Iris. The twins are chronologically aged one, but because of their odd connection to the Speed Force (Ouch!) they’re physically around eight years old. Jai can bulk himself up and Iris can move through solid objects (she reaches through her brother to steal his breakfast bacon). By using the Speed Force (GAH!) Wally can pull his kids out along with him.Waid’s humor and characterization and an appearance by the Justice League make this bearable.

    I just finished reading this run, in single-issue format. I've really lost track of what's been done with the Flash over the last 20 years or so. There have been so many reboots and changes. This series starts yet another reboot, bringing Wally West back. The mechanics of how that happened are a bit beyond me, but if you ignore all that, and just enjoy this story on its own terms, it's not bad.This run was written by Mark Waid, and illustrated (initially) by Daniel Acuña, and (later) by Freddie Williams II. And there was a backup feature, which eventually tied in with the main story, written by Waid with John Rogers, and illustrated by Doug Braithwaite.The writing throughout was well-done, as I'd expect from Mark Waid. Some nice humor, good character development, and lots of action. On the art, I like all three of the artists who worked on this, but their styles are very different. It's OK to have that difference between the main feature and the backup, but the switch from Acuña to Williams in the middle of the main story was awkward.Waid left the series after just this one story, and I don't think this run lasted much longer before yet another reboot. (I've really lost track.) But it you're looking for a fun Wally West Flash story, this is a good one.

    I've never actually read any Flash comics and this was a great read to start off with. The Flash/West family is too adorable for words. Needless to say I really like how this was put together. The twist away from your typical superhero comic is nice. Albeit it's not as action packed or exciting but the element of family thrown into the story is an endearing break from the usual superhero-kicks-antihero antics.

    I haven't read Flash in a while so I wasn't aware of his family or anything but I was smiling all through the book. The family dynamic was just great (very the Incredibles), I generally liked the art though it's kind of a pain that the artist switches so often and in such different styles! I don't suppose I should get attached to those kids as I understand Wally West has no part in the new 52...

    It was alright, maybe 3.5 starsA bit choppy, but a fun storySo the whole freezing all the water in the city, even putting aside all the wonky science, what if somebody was in the shower? Not to mention if flash has to go so far underground to find liquid water shouldn't there be pipes burst all over the place, and all kinds of other damage related to flash-freezing the water?

    Mark Waid, creator of the Flash Legacy, gets to write about Wally West's kids, and this is what we get? Overly cute kids, a muddled storyline full of guest stars, and a silly menace. "The Fast Life", which sets up the previous storyline, is quite good, but everything else here is mediocre. Stay to the original Waid run for your Waid collection.

    Mostly bad stories, bad dialogue, and bad art. The other-planet section is compelling, and some of the sequences are fun, but after the incredible run that Johns had with Wally West, this one's a big disappointment as the end of a major era.

    I really expected more from Mark Waid. There were some ok stories, but it was kind of choppy as a whole. The other planet/dimension stuff was interesting. But again, kind of disappointing. If you want a good Flash story check out Geoff Johns run on the character.

    Not sure I totally get the whole thing with the kids, they're one year old, with accelerated growth, have lived their entire lives on another planet yet are begging for cell phones? hmmm. Beyond that I think this suffers from the DC superhero curse: choppy & nonsensical plots.

    I was so excited to have Wally West back as The Flash, and then this stink bomb was dropped.

    Wally and Linda's speed-aging children who deserve to be heroes because they may die any day. I love the invading aliens and the Flash-worshipers, but not nearly as much as I love Jai and Iris.
