- Full Description
More great early Flash stories, this time from those prime years, the early 1960s, when it was all coming together. Writer John Broome created brilliant stories that made Flash a fan-favorite for every DC reader. The amazing villians just kept coming: Captain Cold, Mirror Master, Pied Piper, Reverse-Flash, Heat Wave, Trickster, Weather Wizard and more. This collection also guest-stars Kid Flash, the Golden Age Flash, the Elongated Man (super-sleuth Ralph Dibny, in his spin-off of Plastic Man), and Green Lantern.
Here is police scientist Barry Allen, aka The Flash.
Even die-hard Marvel readers were captured by editor Julius Schwartz's best books: Green Lantern, Strange Adventures, Mystery in Space...and The Flash. Taking their cue from science fiction, they made the Flash a thinking man's hero, using his head in story after story, rather than fists and brute strength. He continually discovered new ways to use his super speed, including traveling through time and through objects, meeting his predecessor from the 1940s, the original Flash, and lots more. Many stories were often more mystery, figuring out how to foil the enemy, than they were just straight-forward adventure.
And the A-team of comics was drawing the adventures. No one did it better than Anderson and Infantino, the beloved team who'd also made Adam Strange a fan favorite. Infantino's slick sci-fi style was perfect, and Anderson's tight inking was the perfect collaboration.
For fun, readable comics, discover DC's very best title of the Silver Age. Okay, well along with the other Schwartz-edited titles mentioned above.

- The question of how it feels to be turned into a puppet and how one would recognize the sensation are ones that have troubled me for half a century.
