I was like you. I was so enamored with the Waid run that I dropped the Flash when he left. I actually dropped a little before he left b/c I heard he was leaving. Either way, I put off getting any of the Johns run for about a year. At some point, I found several issues in a bargain bin and picked them up. I was hooked almost immediately. This stuff is at least as good if not better in some places than the Waid stuff IMHO. There were a couple of places that I didn't care for but overall, this is a great run of the Flash. My biggest complaint was that they didn't end the run with 125 when Johns left. Those last few issues from 126-130 were painful after having so many years of such great stories. If you can afford it, I strongly encourage you to pick up the Johns run.
