> 1. How are others enjoying this title? Is it good to jump in and follow on a regular basis? What are the things you like best about it?

Welcome to the board. I don't really care for the current series. I loved Waid's first run, but this one stinks. But with the return of Barry Allen, there's sure to be a shakeup of the current Flash series. So be sure to get the Flash: Rebirth series when it comes out.

> 2. What are some good, older storylines, TPBs, etc. regarding The Flash, which are your favorites and that you would recommend?

I would recommend anything by Waid and Johns, which would encompass Flash v2 #74-225

My favorites are: (and you can get most of these in TPB)
-The Greatest Flash Stories Ever Told TPB (Collects stories from FLASH COMICS #86 and 104, THE FLASH #123, 155, 165 and 179, DC SPECIAL SERIES #11 and THE FLASH (Second Series) #91
-Flash v1 #220-237
-Flash v1 #300-350

Flash v2:
-Return of Barry Allen (#74-79)
-Terminal Velocity (0, 95-100)
-Dead Heat (108-111, Impulse 10 & 11)
-Chain Lightning (145-150)
-The Dark Flash saga (152-159)
-Rogues (177-182)
-Ignition (201-206)
-Secret of Barry Allen (207-217)
-Rogue War (218-225)
