Featuring 18 of the best and the most important stories carefully selected from eight decades: his origin in Flash Comics #1 in 1940; "Introducing The Thorn" in 1947 by Kanigher & Kubert; the Silver Age Showcase #4 origin in 1956 and five more stories from the sixties, all by Carmine Infantino; first appearances of all three Flashes--Barry Allen, Jay Garrick, and Wally West, and 100 pages of never-before-reprinted stories! Commentary from former Flash writers, artists, and editors including Mark Waid, Paul Kupperberg, Roy Thomas, Dan Didio...and much more!

Also includes "Nobody Dies" by William Messner-Loebs and Greg LaRocque (Flash #54, 1991) "1981--A Flash Odyssey" by Cary Bates and Carmine Infantino (The Flash #300, 1981) and much, much more!

In fact, both of the original "Thorn" stories are here by Joe Kubert, from Flash Comics #89 and #96, 1947, 1948, when they re-upped The Flash and made him a more serious character, as the super-hero boom was winding down (some of my very favorite Golden Age stories). The young Joe Kubert does a superb job.

Introduction by Dan Didio. In all, 18 carefully chosen stories right up to 2019, with commentary by the creators interspersed so that they can discuss the importance of each story and each era of the Flash's long history.
