Review by Jim Bennett
Flash #752 is very different from the previous chapter. We go from a full on battle to a very Barry Allen focused issue, with our hero trying to figure out where he is and how he can get back to Central City, Iris and, more importantly, Paradox!
One thing Flash comics do incredibly well is character work, you really get drawn in and you care about all of them and, with issue, become invested in how Barry’s going to get out of this predicament. Even though we only really spend this issue with Flash, every panel and every page you get the feeling of the larger story going on... and I love it.

One thing we have to talk about in this issue is the armour that Barry has to create for himself, am I the only one getting vibes from the movie version of Flash’s suit? I don’t think it’s going to stay, but I really like the nod.
Unfortunately, with the current situation going on, we have no idea when the next issue of Flash will be released. Along with physical releases being stopped, DC have also temporarily halted digital releases too, so that comic book stores will not suffer in the long run. I think this is a stand up move from DC and, while I miss my comics, I’m happy to wait so that after all this brick and mortar comic shops will still have a business to go back to.

Conclusion

As this story is very focused it’s hard to talk about it without spoiling the whole issue, so I’ll just say that Flash #752 delivered a great story in a very different way from the last. I love how they can do that in comics; the way they keep changing things up so that each issue feels like something new.
