This Week: Flash by Geoff Johns Omnibus, vol.1

When Geoff Johns relaunched The Flash with Flash: Rebirth, readers wondered why DC had let most of his first run on the series go out of print. Then they announced a new, high-quality hardcover reprint series. The first volume comes out this week.

The Flash Omnibus by Geoff Johns

Written by GEOFF JOHNS ; Art by ANGEL UNZUETA, DOUG HAZLEWOOD, SCOTT KOLINS, ETHAN VAN SCIVER and others; Cover by SCOTT KOLINS

The first in a series of hardcover volumes that collect all of the best-selling issues of THE FLASH written by comics superstar Geoff Johns, beginning with issues #164-176, plus THE FLASH: OUR WORLDS AT WAR #1, THE FLASH: IRON HEIGHTS and THE FLASH SECRET FILES #3!

In this volume, Wally West finds himself without his super speed in a darker, mirror version of Keystone City. Can a powerless Flash defeat Captain Cold and Mirror Master to save the city he loves? Plus, The Flash is shocked to learn that a strange cult is killing all the people he has ever rescued. Featuring art by fan-favorites Ethan Van Sciver, Scott Kolins and more!

DC Universe – 448pg. – Color – Hardcover – $75.00 US

Thoughts: The price is steep, but from what I’ve heard, it’s in line with the paper and binding quality on these books. It’s basically a double-length Archive book, and those typically sell for $50.

The contents were previously collected in the trade paperbacks Wonderland and Blood Will Run. To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time that the Flash: Our Worlds At War special has been collected.

Buy it from your local comic shop this week, or order it from Amazon next week!

    nice a hard cover collection. for some reason, i dig the hc better than the tpb when the books are this size… i think maybe its because it seems to be so easy to break the spine when they are huge and paperback, rather than hc.
    yay for HC! price is kind of steep but hey, if people will pay it… they will charge it.

    I’m going to wait. Both Amazon and Target seem to have it at a more reasonable price. The second if you already have their Visa card. Still a tiny bit more money than through Amazon, but I’m not totally happy with Amazon’s uniform shipping policy on books even if the ‘book’ is a thin little comic one. So I’ll hunt around and see if Target has anything else so that it falls under Free Shipping.

    The stories in the Omnibus are not my faves by a long shot, but I do like HCs over softbacks and my copies of those are pretty aged.

    Any word on an Omnibus for Crossfire/Blitz/Ignition? THOSE are the ones I want (by Geoff Johns.)
