Plunged into the battlegrounds of World War II, Wally West resumes his journey searching for a way home. As the FLASH comes face to face with Hitler himself, Wally’s pals in the present continue to explore a means to pull him back to their current time. Let’s race into THE FLASH #770 by Jeremy Adams to see if Wally can stop Hitler while finding clues as to why he keeps jumping through time into other speedsters’ bodies.

Wally’s been to the prehistoric past to later be jettisoned to the far future as Impulse. And now, Wally finds himself as Jay Garrick, THE FLASH from WW2. After following along since Adams’ run began, I continue to say how uplifting and fun this series has become. Adams has taken FLASH fans all around the “speedway” dropping in on various speedsters from different time eras and walks of life. Now, we get to see Wally tango with Hitler himself. Could this series be more entertaining?

First of all, I loved this opening compared to the rest. Adams kicks off this tale right before Jay was “body-snatched”. It was amazing to see the setup before Wally took over his body. Furthermore, for the history buffs out there, we get to see the FLASH against a supercharged Hitler, a Christian artifact of unspeakable power, and an ending that will make any fan of the 70s and 80s Saturday Morning cartoons incredibly excited for next month.

Lastly, Adams’ story is logical. Readers may not know “why” Wally continues to “Quantum Leap” but Adams continues to drop nuggets along the way that make readers feel like we’ll get a practical answer. He’s set the rules within the story and doesn’t manipulate them as needed. Wally is somehow being pulled to other speedsters and speed force entities. Readers are also aware that if the power surge isn’t stopped, the World (or Universe) will blow. And ultimately, Adams continues to get this reviewer to forget about the past miserable year’s Wally’s character has been through. I’m genuinely excited for the next FLASH issue and I couldn’t tell you the last time I’ve felt that way.


As much as Adams deserves praise for redirecting this ship, Jack Herbert and Brandon Peterson were on point this entire issue. These illustrations were incredibly thorough and detailed. I specifically loved the opening pages before Wally entered the story. The colors popped, the shadows and textures made Jay Garrick and the Ray realistic, and their facial expressions fit their actions and motives. Heck, the Ray was so brilliant, readers will virtually have to turn away! Moreover, the detail was so vibrant that I felt like I was stuck in the jail cell, in the middle of the night, with the FLASH. Herbert and Peterson took a great story and made it outstanding. I can’t recommend this issue and series enough.


Adams creates another clever story that continues to not only impress but gets fans to forget about the Wally West from the past 5-7 years. FLASH #770 permeates Golden Age vibes with subtle humor that’s sure to keep you invested until the 70s’ throwback ending. It’s a fun, quick read with dynamic illustrations that don’t disappoint. I strongly recommend fans jumping into this heart-pounding adventure. Pick up THE FLASH, add it to your pull list, and let me know what you think. Have a great week and God bless!
