Thankfully, the stories themselves are absolutely wonderful. This first volume of the Omnibus contains a number of story arcs (some of which are not fully resolved here), including a Lewis Carroll-esque reality-hopping tale, a four-part thriller involving a Flash-worshipping cult, a battle with a newly powerful Weather Wizard for the life of a mysterious baby, and a somewhat gruesome encounter with Murmur in Iron Heights prison. Geoff Johns' writing here is a sheer joy to read: his Flash stories are imaginative, well-paced, and full of nuanced, believable characters.Read more ›
I'm diehard DC, but please get the omnibus thing right! Your collections have been overpriced in comparison to Marvel, which in turn makes it difficult for me to purchase more of your books.
Please listen to your fans, we know you have no interest in mimicking what Marvel does, but from a business standpoint please consider a different approach to your omnibus releases, for your fans and for your business.
Totally agree with Xavier, I really enjoy Geoff Johns stories, but man, price this more reasonably, and don't call it an omnibus when it's nowhere near what an omnibus should be.
Really only 1 star for Geoff and Scott's work (even though they deserve a full 5), but 1 star for the minimal amount of issues collected for the price.
At 75$ retail you're buying two trades you can find online for under 30$ for the pair. This should have been 3-4 trades collected. Marvel has several 75$ books that have value for the money (of course the average Marvel story pales next to Geoff on Flash).
I think Flash is Johns' crown achievement in comics and while many like his Green Lantern run, it just doesn't have the same greatness as Flash when you read it all. I recommend his Flash arc to anyone but this "omnibus" (13 or so issues, really?) and it's poor quality just don't make this collection worth an addition. Please try the trades of it, though.
