Review: Flash Forward #1

Flash Forward #1

Wally West is in jail awaiting trial and wallowing in his misery. That’s where Flash Forward #1 begins before taking us on a cosmic journey.

The first issue sets up the next step in Wally West’s journey in an interesting way, though, the concept falls short for me.

Written by Scott Lobdell the comic focuses a lot on what’s gotten West to this point in his life. A lot of it is wallowing and there’s one too many times of his stating he killed a bunch of heroes. Any sympathy is gone and it’s turned to annoyance by issue’s end.

Then there’s the next step for Wally. He has to save the multiverse by stopping the dark multiverse. There’s some solid use of this recent concept and in theory the concept is intriguing but something feels off. The new role reminds me of failed reinventions of characters in the past. It’s hard to judge it all on one issue but something again feels off about it all. This isn’t the right way to go about Wally’s redemption. But, it also seems to tie into the meta story going on in the DC Universe going back to Rebirth.

The art by Brett Booth is nice. With ink by Norm Rapmund, color by Luis Guerrero, and letters by Troy Peteri, the comic has lots of moments that’ll keep you lingering on the page. The scenes involving the multiverse have you looking for details and clues. The fights in prison have a nice swift action about them. The imagery works on the macro and micro level.

Flash Forward #1 is an interesting start to this miniseries. It feels like it’s a story you need the whole picture before truly judging. Unfortunately, we have to do that one issue at a time. With that, this feels like one that’s worth a read but maybe hold out for the trade.

Jordan Gunderson ; Christopher Fielder – Story / Jordan Gunderson – Art / Luis Guerrero – Colors / Taylor Esposito – Letters

In the not so distant future…

The U.S. has spent several years embroiled in a conflict with the invading forces of China. In the war zone of the American Southwest, small bands of freedom fighters have formed to help guide refugees away from the destruction. Isabel Vasquez, known to her squad as “Delphi”, has been leading rescue missions inside the combat zone for years. Escorting those displaced from the war has fueled her faith that she is making a difference. But now that faith is increasingly tested by reoccurring nightmares of a coming apocalypse. She fears the war is only the beginning of a great threat…one that promises to bring humanity to the brink of extinction!

Unbeknownst to Delphi, a band of renegade angels has fled Heaven seeking a new refuge. The Earth has become their new home, where they view humanity as a plague that must be purged. As their path forges ahead toward global genocide, it is yet to be decided if Delphi and her growing visions of a global Armageddon can help stop them in time.
