Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful read, you start out with the Flash going ot his grandfathers place and while looking at his old pictres he thinks back to his first year as "Kid Flash". And that's where the story takes place, it shows you how he got his powers and his adventures with the Flash (then Barry Allen) facing people like mirror master. I just love this story because it's fun and you get a to see a New Barry Allen story and if your a fan you can't miss. A fun read tht has it's share of drama, if your a flash fan please get this book because you will love it like i do.

If, like me, you're a newcomer to the Flash fandom, this book is a good review of how Wally got his powers, and what forces helped shape him into the person he became. However, the stories really don't go too deep into young Wally's psyche, and alot of questions are left unanswered. The art is so-so. Most of it is very traditional comic book art, which isn't my cup of tea. I prefer more contemperorary art and manga-style art. But that's just my personal taste.

Format: Paperback
This collection looking into the early days of Wally West as both Kid Flash and then just Flash is a fun read. The art, except for Humberto Ramos, really holds up over time and the story is decent but hokey. The overall collection is a little weak but it is what it is, an introduction to a great character.
