I can't stand the art either. I just don't understand Acuna's appeal. I mean, his covers were okay (these days covers can be used most effectively to feature an unorthodox art style whether it's a pin-up or a representation of what's inside) but I don't understand his appeal. I actually liked Karl Kerschl's animated looking style instead from the All-Flash one-shot.

As for the story, I found it to be decent. The biggest problem is that Wally suddenly has grown-up kids and we are missing a gap in terms of character development. Even the narrations or explanations we have gotten doesn't seem to feel the same as opposed to witnessing the natural progression. To jump from point A to point C so quickly without a point B in terms of character, it just felt like a letdown.
