Flash creators Joshua Williamson and Howard Porter will be releasing an upcoming story called The Flash: Year One in 2019, though not many details have been released yet. However, CBR notes that it’s confirmed to be in canon, and Newsarama says the story will detail how Barry worked through the trauma of his mother’s murder and father’s arrest. The art depicts a youthful Barry, so it clearly takes place rather early in his life. It will apparently be published within the core Flash title, not as a separate mini-series.
This is a subject which hasn’t been covered much since the plot point of his mother’s murder was introduced, so it could be an interesting story. What does everyone hope to see in it?
