The Digital Flash Backlist is Back in Action!

Flash 80 Page Giant 2After several years adding more Flash back issues to their digital catalog on an almost weekly basis, DC stopped. Only the new comics would show up on ComiXology, so I stopped keeping an eye out.

It turns out DC has started up again. The main Flash series from 1987 onward have been complete for a ehile, and DC had been working on filling in the 1959-1986 series when they stopped. Over the past two months they’ve added:

Flash/Green Lantern: Faster Friends, a two part miniseries starring Wally West and Kyle Rayner as they find one of Jay Garrick and Alan Scott’s old cases comes back to haunt them. (Also one issue showed up on LOST, mainly I think because they find a polar bear.)

Flash 50th Anniversary  Special, in which three generations of Flashes battle the same villain across the ages, and a future Flash John Fox makes his debut.

Flash 80-page Giant #1 and #2, each featuring a mix of Jay, Barry, Wally and Bart, plus max Mercury and Jesse Quick.

DC First: Superman/Flash, featuring the first race between Superman and Jay Garrick.

Flash Secret Files #3, which introduced Hunter Zolomon.

Flash (1959) #107, which was skipped for some reason the when they started releasing the Silver Age Barry Allen issues.

And there’s also a digital collection of theMorrison /Millar /Ryan / Mhan run. The individual issues have been available already, but now you can get them all in one package.

    I really hope they get around to releasing the 1991 Flash TV Special as well as the previous 2 Flash Secret Files books.

    on the Classic side i also want them to add the remaining issues of showcase that featured Barry before he got his own book and I really wish they’d give Jay garrick a lot more love as he only has one issue from his own run as the Flash in digital (
    all his other appearances are in Barry’s run or team books)
