    My favorite current writer, and my favorite Flash. I wish Wally was showing up more in the current DC books.

    Hmm, I’ve never really read any Flash before. Hopefully I’ll have the chance to now! Good luck to everyone.

    Really, none?

    To be honest, having so many different Flashes just turned me off. I was never sure of where to start and was always afraid that I’d end up mixing them up. That’s all behind me now, though.

    haha, I understand. I think that Born To Run is probably a fair place to start overall, but jumping in here isn’t a bad idea either.

    Geoff Johns has such an impressive body of work. His Green Lantern runs are my favorite, and I haven’t had a chance to check out any of his Flash, hope I get the opportunity!

    avatar Ian replied on December 5th, 2010 at 1:43 am:

    I think this was one of his first major break outs. I recall it being a fan favorite, at least.

    honestly I’m drawing a break on what he did before without looking it up, but this is where I first started recognizing the name.

    I haven’t read much Flash, but I always like it when I do. Hopefully this will get me into the book.

    Alls I know ’bout flash is that New Ironman 2 movie.

    At least Van Sciver can’t make this one late. In Johns we trust

    Does he have a problem with deadlines? Because I only read trades I don’t often know which titles have had delays.

    Wow, I was just looking to get into the Flash comics. This trade is a little farther ahead though, I guess.

    Where would you start reading the Flash?

    [Reply]

    avatar Ian replied on December 6th, 2010 at 3:27 pm:

    It’s actually not a bad place to start. You might want to read Flash: Born To Run first though, it is sort of a Year One for Wally West starting as Kid Flash (but more catch up feeling and less original story feeling.)

    Oh man, this would be great. I’ve been trying to get into Flash lately, but right now I’m wrapped up in reading all GL/GLC trades from Green Lantern Rebirth to Blackest Night (a LOT of reading)

  17. avatar jonah_X wrote on at December 8, 2010 4:38 am:

    Geoff Johns is one of my favorite writers since I stumbled over Green Lantern: Rebirth. I’ve only read the The Flash Tie-ins of the Blackest Night, but it would be very (!) nice and interesting if I had a chance to get another piece of art by Mr. Johns!

    Just got Born to Run in the mail the other day, and I just started subbing to the new Flash series, so this book would fit right in. Looks like another great giveaway from Ian! (Oh, I also got The Greatest Flash Stories Ever Told in the mail.) Good luck everyone!

    PS I had just gotten those two Sandman volumes a few weeks ago, so I didn’t post in that contest. But congrats to the winner!

    avatar Ian replied on December 8th, 2010 at 1:55 pm:

    Wait, is it the Greatest Flash Stories Ever Told or Flash: The Greatest Stories Ever Told? Man those two titles are confusing.

    Haven’t read any flash TPBs in a year or two, but this cover looks sweet!

    I’m trying to collect the whole Flash run by Johns, and this trade looks awesome!!!

    [Reply]

    avatar Ian replied on December 8th, 2010 at 11:24 pm:

    It’s a good one to collect – I think the entire run has been released in trade.

    This was one of my favorte runs of the Wally Years. The Flash is one of my favorite series of all time, and its hard to see it running infrequently in its current run.
