This week sees the release of the long-awaited (well, by me anyway) Flash Archives vol.6, featuring Silver Age Flash tales from the mid-1960s.
It’s a Rogues Gallery parade in these tales from THE FLASH #142-150, as the Scarlet Speedster battles The Trickster, Weather Wizard, Mirror Master, Mr. Element, The Reverse Flash, Captain Boomerang and Captain Cold! Plus, a tale guest-starring Green Lantern!
Stories and art by John Broome, Gardner Fox, Carmine Infantino, Joe Giella, Frank Giacola. Introduction by Paul Kupperberg. 240 pages – $59.99
If the price seems a bit steep, Amazon has it on 31% discount.
If you prefer your Silver Age reprints in cheap paperpack form, hang on until next week for The Flash Chronicles Vol. 3. The Chronicles are shorter as well as being behind the Archives, so vol.3 only brings us up to Flash #118.
Also out: digital back-issues of the post-Crisis Flash #46-47. Comixology has been releasing three issues a week for several months now, which makes me wonder whether…
it’s a typo(Update: the comics are up now and it’s only #46 & #47)
- they’re slowing down
- they plan to release Flash #48-50 all in one week.
Flash #46-47 feature parts 2 and 3 of the three-part story in which Gorilla Grodd leads the animals of Keystone City in a revolt against the humans. Vixen guest-stars, teaming up with the Flash to stop the rebellion.
