It was obvious that Carmine Infantino's art was changing, and not necessarily for the better. A thin Flash had gotten thicker, and the joy that had been there no longer seemed to be. Fox(Author), John Broome(Author), E. Nelson Bridwell(Author) & 3 more. But, the Andru art was, in my opinion, totally wrong for this character. Frank Robbin's bizarre stories did not help.

I realized this collection of Flash stories are the earliest, and which means it was first intended for kids, instead of adults. This is my feeling, since there are some Kid Flash tales who is exactly like Flash except is a kid. And the bad guys always seem to rob banks and jewelry stores. The plots are simple. But being a Flash fan, I wasn't concern of the storytelling as much as seeing how the first issues of Flash is like. So I guess this collection is no different than DC Archives except in black and white. I enjoy the first appearances of some of the Rogue's Gallery. We even get to see origin of Elongated Man who makes appearances.

Loved the flash as a kid . . . this is great for my kids, even though in black and white.

Some will identify the launch of the Fantastic Four and Spider-man with the start of Silver Age of Comics. That's not quite right. It all began with the Silver Age Flash (Barry Allen) who was introduced in Showcase #4.

This book collects the last story featuring the Golden Age Flash Jay Garrick last appearance in his 1949 Magazine (Flash #104) along with Silver Age Flash tryouts in Showcase #4, #8, #13, and #14 (1956-58) and then the new Flash continuing bi-monthly series from 105-119.

There's a lot to like about the book. Many of the best Flash villains are introduced in this book including Captain Cold, Gorilla Grodd (called only Grodd in these stories), Mirror Master, Dr. Alchemy, the Weather Wizard, the Trickster, and Captain Boomerang. The first four of these had multiple appearances, so early on there was a great sense of what the Flash's rogue's gallery would be like, and Grodd clearly stood out as more evil from the rest.

The Silver Age Flash also followed the tradition of the Golden Age version by not having book length stories. Instead, the Flash introduced back up characters. Wally West was introduced as Kid Flash in Flash #110, Ralph Dibney as the Elongated Man in Flash #112, and three dopes Winky, Blinky, and Noddy were introduced in Flash #117.

After his introduction, Kid Flash actually had five solo adventures in which Barry Allen didn't appear accept perhaps as a cameo. The early Kid Flash wore a uniform just like the adult version only smaller. The adventures are typical light kid fare.

The Elongated Man stories are fun as the Flash actually gets jealous of him. The Elongated Man adventures are team ups with the Flash and mostly light. It's worth noting that Elongated was introduced more than a year before Marvel's Mr. Fantastic.

The Winky, Blinky, and Noddy characters were without a doubt the stupidest concept re-introduced. They were originally in the Golden Age Flash Comics and really infantile characters who probably gave us a hint as to why Marvel had its early 1960s ascendancy.

However, they weren't enough to spoil this book. It introduced some great concepts and characters. The Flash's powers remain impressive as does his mighty rogues gallery stands the test of time nicely. Ironically, my favorite story in this book wasn't a story with a rogue, but "Around the World in 80 Minutes" (Showcase #13) which features the Flash circling the globe in 80 minutes for the heck of it, with the goal of making it back in time for his ever-late alter ego to make a date with the temperamental Iris West. Along the way, he has to solve several desperate problems and fend off several grateful maidens.

It's a story that represents the fun and light-heartedness of this collection. While characterization remains weak, this is groundbreaking stuff that launched a whole new age of comics and that makes it a worthwhile read.

I wrote a review of this particular volume with a few negative comments, and of course, the fan-boy contingent doesn't really care whether or not a review is helpful to newcomers, they only care that you agree with their opinion, and if you don't, rather than write their own review, they find it a lot easier to simply say that the review is not helpful. This is nothing more than on-line bullying against those who care about posting honest reviews and helping guide others. Well, you win. I remove the slightly negative review, so while it is no longer helpful, at least future shoppers won't have to make their decisions based on silly distracting contrary opinions. Congratulations. Now grow up.

This one, in my opinion, is the best one I have read so far. I have seven of the showcases and one of the essentials, and this one is the best one so far that I have read. The stories of Barry Allen, aka The Flash, display all the excitement and fun of the comics. From the love story with Iris West to the origin of Wally West aka Kid Flash, the excitement never ends. It is 500 pages plus of awesome comics!

A must purchase for any DC collector...if he does not already own the Flash Archives 1 - 3. If so, this title is redundant. Still for non-Archives owners, we have here a bargain book reprinting from Showcase and Flash 105 - 111. Enjoy. Volume 2 will be a keeper going beyond Archives #4. The Showcase Presents series is well worth looking at!

Another collection to add in my bookcase. The Paperback looks in mint condition.
