FLASH BY MARK WAID TP VOL 01

(W) Mark Waid & Various (A) Craig Brasfield & Various (CA) Greg LaRocque & Various

In 1990, Mark Waid's legendary writing career began when he scripted his first issue of THE FLASH. Waid would continue to work on Wally West for nearly a decade, building a world that would keep the character running for years. In this first volume of a new series, Young Wally West is quickly in danger-not only from The Flash's enemies, but from powers that he doesn't know how to control! Collects THE FLASH #62-68, THE FLASH ANNUAL #4-5 and THE FLASH SPECIAL #1.

For those who enjoyed Geoff Johns' run on the Flash, this stuff is the foundation upon which that run was built! See where it all began with these great reprints that finally chronicle Waid's glorious time upon the FLASH!!
