    Default The Flash - If You Had To Choose 7

    You want to introduce someone to the wondrous world of the Flash, but you can only choose 7 stories, arcs, books or trades to introduce to them. What do you choose?

    The Flash Year One by Waid
    The Return of Barry Allen by Waid
    Terminal Velocity by Waid
    Race Against Time by Waid
    Chain Lightning & The Dark Flash Saga by Waid
    Flash #20 by Messener-Loeb - This is one of my all time favorite single issues
    Flash #54 by Messener-Loeb

    These are pretty much my favorite Flash stories AND I think are the perfect representation of who the Flash is. Especially Flash #0 which is included in the Terminal Velocity collection.

    Flash and Green Lantern: The Brave and the Bold
    JLA: Year One
    Born to Run
    Return of Barry Allen
    Terminal Velocity
    Dead Heat
    A Day in the Life of the Flash

    I feel like I should probably put one of Johns' stories in there but I haven't read any in years so I'm not sure how they hold up. Well, I did reread Rogue War fairly recently and I didn't like it much at all...

    And I'm really torn that I couldn't find space for Loebs' brilliant one shot of Wally saving the woman after they're both ejected from a plane mid-flight (#54, I believe).

    Barry Allen definitely needed to be represented so I included what is, by a million miles, the two books that best represent the character to me, even if one is technically a JLA story.

    Secret Origins Annual 2
    Flash of Two Worlds
    Flash 275 - 284 (Death of Iris)
    Return of Barry Allen
    Dead Heat
    Flashpoint
    Flash War

    Tried to hit as many eras of the book as I could in my list. That Secret Origins annual is still the definitive Barry origin to me.
