Description

Product Description

Introduced in 1940, The Flash burst onto the comic book scene with an explosive debut akin to his super-speed powers. He was an instant smash-hit success, as the lightning bolt insignia upon his chest became synonymous with the term "superhero". Even as seven decades have passed, The Flash is still a vibrant part of the DC Comics lore and an integral part of the genre.

The Flash: A Celebration of 75 Years collects a wide range of stories featuring the Scarlet Speedster, ranging his seven decades as a mainstay in the DC Comics universe. From the original Flash, Jay Garrick, to his successors Barry Allen and Wally West, the mantle of this beloved hero has made him burst beyond the printed page into a pop culture symbol. This anthology graphic novel collects stories from the industry''s legendary talents, including Gardner Fox, John Broome and Geoff Johns.

About the Author

Born in 1911 in Brooklyn, New York, Gardner Fox was probably the single most imaginative and productive writer in the Golden Age of comics. In the 1940s, he created or co-created dozens of long-running features for DC Comics, including the Flash, Hawkman, the Sandman, and Doctor Fate, as well as penning most of the adventures of comics’ first super-team, the  Justice Society of America. He was also the second person to script Batman, beginning somewhere around the Dark Knight Detective’s third story. For other companies over the years Fox also wrote  Skyman, the Face, Jet Powers, Dr. Strange, Doc Savage and many others—including  Crom the Barbarian, the first sword-and-sorcery series in comics. Following the revival in the late 1950s of the super-hero genre, Fox assembled Earth’s Mightiest Heroes once more and scripted an unbroken 65-issue run of Justice League of America. Though he produced thousands of other scripts and wrote over 100 books, it is perhaps this body of work for which he is best known. Fox passed away in 1986.

This collection of Flash comics is really helpful in helping readers understand the CW''s The FLASH hit t.v. show. Beware though, because it doesn''t have everything! There are a lot of cliffhangers in it. Most of the comics are unfinished.

Otherwise, it''s good.

My kid really enjoyed it, being a Flash fan. He surprised me by saying he likes the old art style better. THIS was a great opportunity to share with him my own comic experience growing up. Highly recommended, and very cool looking to boot.

First time reading original comics and have to say they are fantastic. The original, classic artwork with the cliche storylines really made it enjoyable and interesting to read as I am used to the types of comics published nowadays. The artwork slowoly gets better and better throughout the collection and is well worth the money.

This is a handsomely mounted glossy collection of stories that record the evolution of The Flash from the first issue to the recent Flashpoint series. The stories are well chosen and the ones from the Golden and Silver ages are complete. But I guess it wouldn''t be possible to give the whole story as far as more recent stories are concerned. One gets to see how the art, story telling and characterization evolved and developed through the years. If you are a fan of The Flash this is a must have.

Handsome hardbound collection of Flash stories. Fairly even distribution of tales from all periods. I have also purchased the Batman, Superman and Shazam "75 Years" collections, and this is the best of the bunch, from what I''ve seen. A good effort to provide essential origin stories of the three different Flashes, and to represent essential story lines and villains. One con: the introductions to each section could be longer and more detailed.
