‘The Flash #65’ (review)

Written by Joshua Williamson
Illustrated by Rafa Sandoval
Published by DC Comics


The crossover between the Flash and The Batman title has been great! It’s been a truly rollicking adventure from the beginning.

Joshua Williamson has done a great job writing this and has made an exceptional storyline. Every part was enjoyable and relevant and you can’t ask for better than that!

The beginning of the issue shows the Flash flipping through time and space. He goes past Sanctuary. He goes past a few other places. He finally ends up in Central City. And just in time too!

Chaos is abound in the city! He must act quick!

Gotham Girl is wrecking havoc and he has to put a stop to her once and for all!

The first thing he does is to save Batman. Then, the two of them have a meeting amongst all of the destruction to come up with a game plan.

They just go for it!  Will this plan work? Or are the two of them in for a hell of a disappointment? Luckily, we find out quick.

That’s because Williamson writes the issue with a lightning quick pace. After removing the threat of Gotham Girl, the duo head on back to the Batcave. They have an argument on how things went down. They fight. It gets emotional. The Batman gets in a low blow when he insults the Flash by saying, “At least I didn’t forget I had a partner.”

The Flash flips out and shows Batman that he could have punched him a thousand times before he even could get one hit in. It’s a great scene for sure.

The book leads into an epilogue and a teaser of something called “Year of the Villain.” I’m not sure what it means. Basically, Superman shows up and he has a conversation with Batman. They talk about who they can trust. It’s very interesting and I’m excited to see where DC might go from here with this.

Rafa Sandoval is the perfect artist for this book. I hope he comes back. He works great with Williamson. This was a nice crossover between both of the books. The creative team really rocked it. I would like a lot more of the crossovers between books done just like this. It was a good time for sure.
