Just can't get into this title despite really (or kinda) wanting too. Decided to give it another try...


    A Speed-Force powered Gorilla Grodd is the top of the Flash’s current list of problems, but it looks like he may finally be catching a break as an ally in the form of Gorilla City resident Solivar appears to help him out. But how long can Solivar last against Grodd’s might? Plus, Patty Spivot knows Barry’s secret - he is the Flash! How will she be able to deal with this in the midst of Central City’s gorilla invasion?

    Grodd’s invasion of Central City is causing absolute chaos, but out of the confusion, comes help! But will the alliance of the Flash and Solivar be short lived? With the duo at the mercy of the mad Gorilla tyrant, things aren’t looking too great for Barry right now – so presumably having his secret identity revealed to Patty isn’t the best thing to happen right now!

Paty's love reads true but she still has the appeal that Carly Cooper did with Peter - which aint much.

Turbine was unheroic with his defeatism. Then managed to throw a few rocks in uninspired reconsideration.

Grodd and the apes have a (same old?) grand scheme to rule the world or somesuch - guess it would've helped to read the earlier chapters. They do offer welcome plot device why the crisis is contained and no other heroes can get into the city. Elaboration here is welcome.

The Rogues are setting up to help save the city. Not much characterization this time but it looks like Mirror Master is the goto guy for resources for their plan.

Dr. Elias's Lab is the source of the Speed Force beam or somesuch. Elaboration here is welcome.

Iris has a brother Daniel who wanted to save her somehow but was captured. Elaboration here is welcome.

Darryl and Mayala are new to me. Apparently trusted folks taking care of Barry in a coma.

And then we get NINE pages of Speed Force dream collage showcasing Flash's new power to see outcome timelines for choices he would choose. Okay, if it's events that do not come to pass then NINE pages was far too bothersome/gratuitous in length and the images were not that clear/poignant at all for someone just jumping on this issue. BUT if these are exact scenes that come to pass then fine, it's somewhat creative story display for dedicated readers to look for clue/key images. Undecided about getting 16 - encouragement here is welcome.
