I think the art didn’t help, it felt too outdated for what I wanted - except I really dug the annual in the back with a heavier 90s look. On a visit to his grandfather’s, Wally uncovers an old scrapbook made by his late aunt Iris chronicling his days as Kid Flash.

Born to Run is a very very solid 4 out of 5, but the rest around a 3, and those opening annuals or whatever are fucking dreadful 1's. Her skin also gets progressively lighter each issue, the GL crossover with Gorilla Grodd is pretty starkly racist, and the only black 'regular' character is Chunk, who shows up maybe three times to be laughed at and discarded. The thing is, I think Mark Waid understood something important about superhero origin stories, which is that they have two parts.Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.

He's standing in front of a similar cabinet, hearing from the Flash how his accident happened, and bam, same thing! The opening 50th-anniversary issue is a typical, albeit somewhat fun, look into the history of the three main Flashes (Garrick, Allen, West) and a solid introduction to a future Flash (Fox).The Flash Book One by Mark Waid, is a collection of a number of Flash stories, focusing on the early modern age Flash, Wally West. I'd absolutely recommend it- Wally West is a fantastic Flash, and it strikes an excellent balance between quick paced action and West's personal drama, itself almost telenovela-level. The Born to Run storyline that functions as a retold origin story for Wally West is wonderfully swift, energetic, and filled with great dialogue and impeccable cliffhangers. He paints a picture of a kid who was ignored by his parents but had a special relationship with his aunt Iris, who was also his best friend. As this latest collection of Flash tales written by Mark Waid begins, meet Walter West, a Flash from a parallel reality where his beloved Linda Park died and the speedster doles out brutal justice to criminals as a response.

It's a fun collection of issues to read (I just finished Book Four,) but should be read with the awareness that the writing and art are both problematic in a way that's not okay now and wasn't really then (this was only 20/30 years ago). He didn’t give him a huge presence like a Batman, but he’s still very toned and muscular and it works so well. His words seem to come alive and you'll find yourself enjoying the time you spend reading Wally's thoughts.Linda Park becomes their target because of her investigative reporting, but if you asked me what their original goal was in Keystone, I am drawing a blank. This ascendant journey leads Wally down his own timeline and to a revelation about a critical moment in his past. The first problem is that Jesse shows up in the story an issue or two before and has little to no development. Waid has written for every major comic publisher, including Marvel Comics, Archie (where he served briefly as their cover-gag editor), Dark Horse, Image, DC Comics and Top Cow.
