To celebrate the Flash’s 75th Anniversary, DC and ComiXology are holding a gigantic sale with ~500 digital comics at 99¢ each — including many that are new to the digital backlist!
- Flash (New 52 series) starring Barry Allen: complete including annuals, zero, etc.
- Flash (1959) starring Barry Allen: 74 issues including #105-155 and scattered issues later in the run, 21 of which are newly digitized this week.

- Flash (2010) starring Barry Allen: complete run.
- Flash: Rebirth
- Flash: The Fastest Man Alive starring Bart Allen complete run (first time online)
- Flashpoint, Citizen Cold, Kid Flash Lost and Reverse Flash.
- Crisis on Infinite Earths

- All the Superman/Flash races
- The “Dead Heat” crossover issues of Impulse
- Flash Plus Nightwing
- The first arc of the New 52 Justice League
- The Legends of the DC Universe 3-parter starring Barry Allen (a great melding of the CSI and superhero sides of his life)
- Secret Origins issues featuring the Rogues and the Flash
- Speed Force
- Flash Spectacular 1978
- Team-up issues of DC Comics Presents, Brave and the Bold, and Booster Gold (including the issue that IIRC is the source of the Rainbow Raider “I believe in me!” panel).
There’s so much stuff here, and so much new stuff, that I can’t get too upset at them for not adding more Golden Age comics even though the Flash whose 75th anniversary is being celebrated is Jay Garrick. (They did at least make a point of including some of his guest spots in the Silver Age collection.)
The sale runs through March 16. Check it out – if you want to read some classic (or recent) Flash comics, now’s a good time to look.
Update: ComicsAlliance has a list of recommendations, since you probably don’t have a spare $495 lying around to buy the full set. Though somehow they left out Flash #54, “Nobody Dies.”
