> Okay I've asked this board before where a good place to start reading the flash would be. Well I haven't gotten around to reading any of those suggestions so far and the only Flash thing I've read was issue #1 of the current series with Bart Allen (well I did read Green Lantern rebirth which had the Flash in it but it didn't focus on him). So could I read start reading issue 231 and get what's going on? I heard how Wally West (I think that it was that Flash) came back and I heard how Bart died but I would have to go back and see the same info again to remind myself on most of the details. Or should I read issues 1-13 and then read 231? Or should I read older comics to get more of the history of the Flash? I'm bassically just curious if I can jump into the current series or not. Oh and are they collecting 1-13 in a trade or is it to early to know that info yet?
I agree with the other post. Picking up All Flash 1 should bring you up to speed (no pun intended) on Flash. The Bart Allen series already has one volume in TPB which I think collects 1-6 or 7. I really wouldn't bother picking that up though even if you are a huge Bart fan. It just never had a chance to really hit its stride and they layed a lot of ground work for stuff that probably will never happen since Bart is "dead." All Flash is supposed to recap a lot of stuff and lead directly into Flash 231. You won't be disappointed in the new/old Flash series if Waid stays true to form and what he did in the past.
