The Flash Archives (1996) – TPB vol. 01


While working in his lab, police scientist Barry Allen was struck by lightning at the exact same time that he became doused in chemicals. But instead of scarring him or taking his life, this freak accident gave him a new one, as the Flash, the fastest man alive. This hardcover epic reprints the original 1950s tales that first introduced the Flash and his colorful assortment of villains. Relive the scarlet speedster’s earliest adventures and learn the origins of one of DC’s classic heroes.
