Subj: Flash #247

I figure if the series had to end (again), at least it ended with a decent story. It was better-written than "Finish Line," and actually made an effort to tie things together. It didn't burn its bridges (that, presumably, would be reserved for Final Crisis or Flash: Rebirth.

I do think this issue suffered from art-by-committee. Art changes normally don't bother me if the styles are similar, but several of the artists had markedly different styles.

Anyway, there were some nice thematic links: Wally being Linda's beacon this time, rather than vice-versa. Iris using the speed force to solve her father's problem, like he solved hers and Jai's in the last storyline. The Titans going after the HIVE again.

It managed to be less of an ending than the final issues of Barry's or Bart's series (each of which was very final in its own way), and more of an ending than the previous final issue of Wally's series (which just sort of said, "Oh, it's over. Bye." on the last page). Sort of pinning down everything about where Wally's been and where he is now, leaving the future open for appearances in other series.

As usual, full review at Speed Force.
