    1 thought on “Flash: The Silver Age Vol. 1

    1. I m an absolute sucker for the older DC comic books, and Barry Allen s story is exciting and thrilling Always buy the print version, now I m on to collecting the rest of the Flash original comics.

    2. It was time I gave DC a try Why don t you often have your collections on sale, DC This is why I read Marvel so much They appeal to my book slut wallet Anyway, this is my first read of Flash a.k.a Barry Allen, police scientist who never does seem to do any police work While it is colorful and has plenty of adventure, I just didn t get into this version of the Flash He didn t have any kind of personality and his comics all had a sameness to them I d better hurry up or I ll be late for my date with [...]

    3. It is interesting to read this and see that the Flash had most of his villains right from the get go At a time when most DC heroes were probably fighting aliens or pulling super pranks flash was already taken on his arch nemesis Captain Cold and fighting the likes of a super gorilla named Gorilla Grodd Probably next to Batman and Spider Man flash has the most interesting set of villains in comics So it certainly was a joy to see all of them they re basically right from the beginning The book doe [...]

    4. I haven t read many Flash comics before, and it was my first time reading Silver age stuff.As you can expect from the 60s and older stories, they were a bit much silly than the over serious tones of nowadays but it s so endearing.Reading decades old stories just brings you the cultural history view and lots of fun I loved that this volumes includes lots of Flash villains, and that I got to see the paper view on Captain Cold and Gorilla Grodd, and also KID FLASH The running jokes about Barry alw [...]

    5. The Flash The Silver Age Vol 1 is a delightful afternoon read that showcases the beginning of Wally West, Kid Flash, and most of the Rogues Gallery that has come to define some of the Flash s greatest battles.Some parts don t particularly age well Iris West s cluelessness , the science is goofy at times, but its the Silver Age of comics It s fun, action packed, and really enjoyable.Definitely worth picking up if you re a fan of The Flash, the Silver Age of comics, or want to know about how comi [...]

    6. This is Silver Age so the art is cheesy and the stories are cheesy but I enjoyed it from the perspective that I was able to read the first stories of Flash, Captain Cold, Grodd, Mirror Master.If you want to read the earliest stories of the Flash then this is where to go.If not, then skip this one.

    7. In general, I m not a huge fan of anything from the silver age, because of the way they are written, but this is a great introduction to The Flash, the villains, Kid Flash and Elongated Man.

    8. Silly Silver Age stuff introduces the Barry Allen Flash, Wally West Kid Flash , and most of the Rogues Gallery.

    9. Back to the start of the Silver Age for DC, when superheroes had all but faded from sight in comics Then the idea of updating the Flash came up, and was tried out in the Showcase book, where it proved to be a success, leading to the revival of the Flash title, with forensic scientist Barry Allen as the title character This volume collects the four Showcase issues, and The Flash 105 116, equivalent to the first two Flash Archives minus the Golden Age Flash origin story and about half of the conte [...]
