Review: The Flash, Volume 1: Move Forward by Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul
The Flash, Vol. 1: Move Forward - Brian Buccellato,Francis Manapul

Fills in the Time Travel square on DC Comic Book Bingo card

 

Barry Allen is getting comfortable with his powers, yet learns (at the most inappropriate moments) more about how to tap into those powers. He is also getting over having to live two separate lives, one as Barry and the other as The Flash. There is a lot of plotline devoted time portals and disrupting the fabric of time, but it was a little too mish-mashed to make a whole lot of sense. I did enjoy the growing romance between Barry and Patty, his co-worker and fellow scientist. Iris West was annoying most of the time. I loved the artwork, but the story had one plot line too many for a cohesive and engaging reader experience. 3 stars for the romance and the artwork; I think I will stick to reading about The Flash in the JLA or as a team up with Superman or Batman.

Canadian authors (happy Canada Day!)
Flash forward (Poche) - Robert J. Sawyer

this is to reference the post by Beauty in Ruins because it lists SciFi and Fantasy books by Canadian authors.  I want to read almost every one and this is the easiest way to refer back to it.

Flash Fiction Forward: 80 Very Short Stories - James R. Thomas

With most of these stories only being a page and a half long, I can't much see the point of reviewing all or most of them (plus there's 80 of them and dude, I don't have that much time and wrestling's on tonight!).

 

Therefore here's a list of authors I discovered and want to read more of thanks to this book, which is often the reason I'll scour short story collections:

 

 

  • Don Shea
  • Alison Townsend
  • Stace Budzko
  • Katherine Weber
  • Steve Almond
  • Hannah Bottomy
  • Kim Church
  • Richard Bausch
  • John Biguenet
  • Stacey Richter
  • Jack Handey
  • Samantha Schoech
  • Leigh Allison Wilson
  • Utahna Faith
  • David Galef
  • Jenny Hall
  • Barry Gifford
  • Leonardo Alishan
    • Jennifer A. Howard
    • Barbara Jacksha
    • Ander Monson
    • Patricia Marx
    • Tony Earley
    • Kit Coyne Irwin
    • Tom Hazuka
    • Sherrie Flick
    • Christopher Merrill
    • G.A. Ingersoll - ("Test" is a true gem, this book is worth reading just for that story)
    • Opal Palmer Adisa
    • Bruce Holland Rogers
    • Michael Knight - "The Mesmerist" is another gem...would love to see this in novel length, and/or as a movie
