Twart - The Flash by ronsalas Twart - The Flash by ronsalas
The Flash is one of my favourite characters. As a kid, I used to read the Flash at around the tail end of the Infantino run. The "Trial of Barry Allen" arc, I think. I still remember the issue where the Flash was racing against time to save Fiona Webb, who sealed herself up in a sensory deprivation chamber after being trapped in a rockslide or something... I don't know. I might be making all of this up. Still, I was fascinated by this guy who, at the point I first read about him, had been through a hell of a lot.

I read about him next at around Crisis. In fact, I read the issues where he was already dead first as I couldn't find the issues to fill my run until later. He always seemed to be a guy doing huge and great things, and paying the price for it.

Hm. It's late and I seem to be rambling. I can probably talk about the Flash for hours, though. I'll leave it with this: my favourite Flash story of all time is Mark Waid's "Return of Barry Allen". Not only is it a great superhero adventure story but it also contains everything essential about a great story, period. People interested in the character would do very well to get a copy of that story and read it.

Anyway, that's it.

Out of curiosity, being such a big Barry Allen fan, what do you think about them bringing him back?

Great image, BTW. Amazing sense of power and speed.

Personally, I think it's a mistake 'cause IMO Barry's story has already been told and bringing him back undoes all the development of the Flash character that has happened since he died. Also, he's a character from a different time and I think that we need a Flash for our times. It is seriously weird to see him back in comics again.

However, I'm sure they can still write great stories about the guy. I'm looking forward to :iconmanapul:'s Flash run.
