Jay Garrick: The Flash #3 Review:

In the latest issue of the series, more tensions arise between Jay and his long-lost daughter Judy. Meanwhile, enemies from their past — and secrets — emerge.

Host Alex Zalben kicked things off saying, “there’s a good amount of emotion here. There’s tension between Jay Garrick being way older than when he lost his daughter, and I think it’s interesting. I’m enjoying the series.”

“The art is unbelievable,” Pete LePage added. “The art does such a great job of pulling you into the story in such a cool way. I was just super blown away by it… And I liked the Stargirl cameo we got in here. This was fun.”

Justin Tyler also enjoyed the issue, saying, “So many of the Flash family stories are all over the place. And this one has a nice focus to it. So pardon the pun, but it feels like this story is slowing down and telling a story as opposed to all the other Flash stories which are racing around doing too much.”

Wrapping things up, Zalben added, “Judy feels a little bit to me like vintage Impulse, if you’re looking for that. And then also this feels like a classic Geoff Johns/Howard Porter style [Flash] story.”
