Some thoughts about The Flash #25
Barry is trying to understand Thawne's reasons for wanting to hurt him but the truth might be too much to handle.
Some interesting points going on here but not necessarily perfect.
I quite enjoy the story that Joshua Williamson is creating. The pacing, exploration of mythos and themes are solidly executed which create a pretty engaging tale where Barry is forced to reminisce his past with Thawne by referencing several key moments (even their New 52 encounter) and showing how incredibly dangerous his nemesis can be.
That being said, I find the way how Thawne turns evil a bit forced for its own good. Williamson tries to give the villain more depth by showing he wasn't always evil and it almost works but the trigger for his change of heart is just unbelievable and it kinda makes me wish that the writer wouldn't have given him any explanation.
Carmine Di Giandomenico, Neil Googe and Ryan Sook share art duties and their work is pretty solid during their respective scenes although Giandomenico and Sook are the strongest artists.
Despite of my issue, I did like this one, excited for the conclusion.
