This extra-sized issue takes us with Barry Allen to the 25th Century, home of his nemesis Reverse-Flash, who holds Iris West prisoner there. Along the way we get a recap and exploration of their history with each other, beginning with Barry’s first visit to that future and first meeting with Eobard Thawne, the era’s biggest Flash fan. At present, Thawne runs a large Flash museum, and their friendship seems to go sour on a very minor point: something Barry said to Eobard that he found inspiring was also said to someone else in a different situation. Really? Seems more like a faint excuse than a reason for hatred. Thawne has captured Iris and lured Barry here to mess with both their minds.

The art on this issue was somewhat distracting because of the style differences between the four artists. Otherwise, it was an interesting read, and a nice change from recent issues. Would that we could all visit the future!
