Morrison/Millar Flash Complete, but not Hardcover

There’s been some concern as to whether the upcoming collection features the entire Grant Morrison/Mark Millar run including “The Black Flash,” which only credits Mark Millar as writer, or only those issues that were co-written by both. DC’s March 2016 solicitations at Newsarama clear it up:

THE FLASH BY GRANT MORRISON AND MARK MILLAR TP

Writers Grant Morrison and Mark Millar put their distinctive mark on the Scarlet Speedster in this run on THE FLASH from issues #130-141, plus the crossover issues GREEN ARROW #130 and GREEN LANTERN #96! Confined to a wheelchair after a run-in with the mystery villain known only as The Suit, how can The Flash protect Keystone City from evil run amok? Plus, The Flash is forced to represent Earth in an cosmos-spanning race against an alien being called Krakkl!

On the plus side: It’s not only the full run, but also the two crossover issues of “Three of a Kind,” which were left out of the previous collection a few years back. Nice!

Then again, it’s being released as a paperback now, rather than a hardcover as originally announced.

Contents of the collection:

Emergency Stop (#130-132): The Flash finds his own dead body, sent back in time from the future, and has to solve his own murder. Introduced The Suit, the ultimate super-villain costume that came to life, draining those who wore it.

Flash Through the Looking Glass (#133), battling the Mirror Master.

Still Life in the Fast Lane (#134): A spotlight on Jay Garrick, the original Flash, as he fills in for an injured Wally West.

Three of a Kind (Green Lantern #96, Green Arrow #130, and Flash #135): The three youngest members of the Justice League try to take a vacation…only to find a trio of super-villains is on the same cruise.

The Human Race (#136-138): Wally must compete in a galactic race against his childhood imaginary friend, Krakkl of the planet Kwyzz. If he loses, Earth is destroyed. If he wins, Krakkl’s homeworld is destroyed.

The Black Flash (#139-141): Death comes to everyone, even speedsters… but this time, Death takes the wrong target. Introduced the Black Flash, who featured prominently on the cover of last year’s cover for Flash: The Fastest Man Alive #13 (remember those Dead Flash Covers?).
