This graphic novel provides a very interesting perspective of how the Flash's powers work, The story was very appealing, but my favorite part of the book in its totality was probably the art. Excellent read.

This is the first Flash comic that I have read, and I liked it a lot!  The art was great and always kept things visually interesting.  I am going to check out the next volume.

This book might be Vol.1 but it doesn't cover Flash's orgin. It tells about it but doesn't go into major details unlike the new Superboy story does. It is still a good book for those familiar with the Flash but I think before newcomers read this one they should go back to Flash's older comics before they will really understand the story, but I could be wrong! Otherwise it is a very good book for fans of Flash's to read
