‘Jay Garrick: The Flash’ #2 review

Judy Garrick has arrived from lost time and has now discovered…the Mall!

The adventures of the Garrick family continue with part two of this miniseries, and Jeremy Adams is tapping into the Speed Force perfectly. He is tag-teaming with Diego Olortegui and Luis Guerrero to bring a fun issue exploring this reunited family. From our preview, you can see that the art team will get to show off their Justice Society skills with a team-up. Adams and Company ideally remind us that the Flashes are always heavily enriched in the fabric of the DC Universe. In this issue, we get a blast from the past, an interesting side effect of the time manipulations, and a trip to the mall. So, let’s dive in!

Starting with the flashback to the original Justice Society and 1941, this creative team shows they have the chops to give us a series that can make the old new again. While they are classic characters, Jeremy Adams gives them a fresh voice that shows they are a bit worried but also dare to become the heroes we know they will be. Diego Olortegui gives us a crowded opening page, but the action is present and highlights the heroes perfectly; the intensity of Hawkman is very apparent with his mace in action. Luis Guerrero picks the colors that honor the past and fit in with the present; plus, his shades for Green Lantern make his powers pop off the page.

I like how the voiceover from Jay Garrick also presents a wild find with missing memories. Since Judy Garrick was snatched from time, it is curious that Jay and Joan lost their memories but are now getting bits back. Just how far will this phenomenon go within the DC Universe? I know we are looking for clues as to who Doctor Elemental is in modern times, but this collection of missing memories is fascinating. This “problem” could be quite a handy fix for some character issues, so I hope this gets more play in future issues.

Having Stargirl make a guest appearance is perfect, not because of the friendship they formed in Stargirl and the Lost Children but because this gives them an ideal new setting to check out: the mall. There is so much that the creative team gets to play with, having Judy, who is from the past, check out a modern-day mall. The team plays things very comically, making this a fun read; plus, we get the bonus of seeing Jay as the doting dad in Flash time. Using the clock to capture Jay’s worry and impatience is an excellent page that shows us one of the downfalls of being a Flash. This team is moving the miniseries along excellently, and I hope they stick around for more.

Jay Garrick: The Flash #2 is an amusing issue that showcases the new adventures of the Garrick family. Seeing an out-of-time Judy experience modern moments is excellent, and now Jay Garrick is the worried-sick scarlet speedster. Jeremy Adams taps into family life perfectly, and the art team of Diego Olotegui and Luis Guerrero display the antics amazingly!
