‘The Flash’ Comics Guide: On Your Mark, Get Set, Read

Untitled-2

As you may have heard, a new Flash TV show began on the CW this week, spinning off from the network's popular superhero-esque series Arrow. And since nothing adds an air of legitimacy to the junk culture of comics quite like the approval of a respectable medium like television, there will doubtless be a number of comics readers, new and old alike, searching out Flash comics for the first time. But the Flash is a character that has been around in one form or another for about seventy years; how on earth would one know how to begin?

Geoff Johns: The Flash Is A Non-Depressing ‘Blue-Sky Character’

The-Flash_7_Full1

Since the launch of the New 52 reboot in 2011, DC Comics has seemingly gone out of its way to find new ways to make its superhero darker. Its current Futures End weekly comics event is one in which everything has become even more dour and depressing in the span of five (narrative) years, for example.

But there's one character that DC writer Geoff Johns simply can't view as dark, however: The Flash. In an interview with Nerdist, former Flash comics writer Johns answered a question about the lighter tone of the new The Flash TV series by saying that Barry Allen simply can't be a gloomy character.

Spider-Man With Super-Speed: Comics Alliance Reviews ‘The Flash’ Television Pilot

the-flash

If you've read my recaps of The CW's Arrow, then you likely know I've been pretty hard on it. Yet I ultimately think the show accomplishes what it has brazenly set out to do since it started: be a television version of the Christopher Nolan Batman films.
