The Flash   (1959)
Search for 'The Flash' on eBay

Publisher: DC Comics

Publication Date: March 1959 - October 1985

Country: United States

Language: English

Notes:
Sometimes erroneously thought of as the first Silver Age comic, this title starred police detective Barry Allen. It ran from around the time of the introduction of Allen until Allen's sacrifice in the events of Crisis on Infinite Earths.

In the early years of this comic, backup strips would be included, introducing (then starring) heroes related to Allen by blood (like Wally West), or by profession (such as Ralph Dibny). It also included some of the foundations of the "multiple earths" concept. The comic is thus a rich source of information about not just the Flash, but many other heroes and villains as well.

Modern readers used to the more self-contained 1987 Wally West title would doubtless find it surprising just how central the Barry Allen comic was to the creation of the modern DCU. It is a measure of no small respect for this comic that Wally West's title was not known as The Flash until issue #101.


For the character of The Flash, numbering—and in a sense continuity—spills over from Flash Comics (1940).
