Newsarama recently presented a list of collected editions DC Comics has planned for the coming summer. In July the publisher will be releasing a new trade paperback entitled The Flash: The Greatest Stories Ever Told. How does this volume stack-up against previous books with that title? Do the chosen stories represent all of the men to have worn the crimson comet's costume? And does the table of contents for the new collection truly boast some of the greatest stories ever told about the fastest man alive? Kelson Vibber has posted a rather detailed break-down of the stories that will be reprinted in the new collection. Visit his blog to see what you can expect from the forthcoming Flash anthology.
DC announced that Flash: The Greatest Stories Ever Told will appear in July of this year... I pulled out my copy of the 1991 edition, and it’s fair to say this is an entirely different book... Both books are very heavily focused on Barry Allen, and each includes just one story with Wally West as the Flash. Flash: The Greatest Stories Ever Told includes two crossover stories: “Flash of Two Words” features both Barry and Jay, and “Beyond the Super-Speed Barrier” features all three during Wally’s days as Kid Flash. So, assuming the contents are final, do they hold up to the title’s promise?
