Some thoughts about The Flash #49
Barry and Wally are arguing about if going through the Speed Force to save Wally's children is the right decision and by doing so they're destroying everything in their path but the worst thing is what they will actually find.
This story continues to escalate wonderfully.
Joshua Williamson delivers another chapter where he focuses on character and plot developments. The dynamic between Barry and Wally is spot-on I believe since is not only centered around events that recently happened (including the crossover The Button which mentioned the forgotten characters) but also their whole history together which makes the tense moment their constantly enduring much more believable. The appearances of other heroes from the DCU makes the scale of this race much bigger and their appearances are also adequate which include the now classic fact that not even Superman can't catch a Flash.
The best part comes towards the end though since both suddenly realize that they've been clearly manipulated by somebody who wanted to gain power and this actually brings a few interesting plot-points and worldbuilding that will be compelling to see in the future.
Howard Porter remains in art duties and his work is still really powerful and energetic during every speed scene and makes the whole story even better.
Great read, can't wait for the next one.
