I dunno how intentional or unintentional it was, but the last page gave me a good laugh.

i liked the idea of Barry being the origin of the speed force. and i also like the way they suggested that Barry might have made himself. 
  my only prob with Flash;Rebirth is that i kinda wish the issue with the twins had worked out differently.

The series was pretty decent. Looking forward to Johns' run on Flash.

The issue was the normal 22 story pages.  The reason Ethan Van Sciver isn't pencilling the ongoing monthly series is because he cannot meet an ongoing monthly schedule. 
I thought the series as a whole was really good, but I wouldn't give this issue 4.5 out of 5.  Way back when this series was first announced (like 16 months ago), it was solicited as a five issue miniseries.  I think it should have stayed that way.  Issues 5 and 6 were a lot of action and chase, but not a lot of story beats.  Johns could have easily condensed this story into five chapters; the story would have been tighter and the delays because of EVS' health problems would not have been as harmful.

Manapul blows EVS out of the water. The preview art looks fantastic.

With all the books Geoff is writing at the moment:
Green Lantern, Superman: Secret Origins, Blackest Night, (am I missing any?)
there was gonna be a delay with one of these books at some point.

So, I've never bougght a Flash book before, but a few people have told me he's a great character. Is it worth me picking it up when the new ongoing title starts?

I'm afraid this was not all that great of a series...it was supposed to quantify the Flash's universe but it didn't.
