- In this first DC COMICS – THE NEW 52 collection of THE FLASH, Mob Rule wages a campaign of crime across Central City, plunging the city into darkness! The only way The Flash can save his city is to make his brain function even faster than before – but as much as it helps him, it also comes at a steep price.
- Collects issues #1-8 of the original monthly series.
DC first told us about this collection back in January, but didn’t announce a firm release date at the time. Collecting Flash v.4 #1-8 covers the opening “Mob Rule” arc, the two-parter with Captain Cold, and the one-shot in the Speed Force introducing Turbine.
The Flash: Move Forward is available for pre-order now.

- Collects THE FLASH #162-184.
Let’s take a quick look at what’s in here. Barry Allen and Iris West’s wedding…Reverse-Flash…oh, no, it’s the Mopee story!…a three-Flash team-up with Wally West and Jay Garrick…the Stupendous Triumph of the Six Super-Villains with the now-iconic, frequently-homaged cover of the Rogues standing over the Flash’s dead body…the second Superman/Flash race (the first was in the pages of Superman)…the Giant-Head Flash…Cary Bates’ first Flash story, introducing Earth-Prime…the Samuroids…and the Most Tragic Day. They stories 1966-1968, as the Flash inches its way from Silver-Age goofiness toward the more serious (but still odd) Bronze Age.
Showcase Presents: The Flash vol.4 is also available for pre-order.
