By now, Geoff Johns name is one of the most credited names in comics today, regardless of how you view the man. But 10 years ago or so, Johns started out as any other writer/rising star could have: he needed a starting point. Although The Flash wasn't his first dip in the writing pool of comics, it was his first real job as writer for the character. So with that, I think people have to give him some slack.

If your like me, and are/became a fan of Johns work, your probably interested in picking up his earlier material. It's not the best story mind you, since this was Johns first full writing duty on The Flash, so you have to cut the book some slack. it's still pretty good and I recommend it. If you want a better comprehensive review of the book, the other reviews will help more.

If you want a better starting point, then start with Flash, Book 1: Blood Will Run. And if you really want all of Johns early Flash stuff, then there's The Flash by Geoff Johns Omnibus, Vol. 1, which includes Wonderland and Blood Will Run (and the one-off of Flash:Our Worlds at War #1). And if you want to save money, then I strongly suggest you buy Wonderland and Blood Will Run by themselves. You'll have to do some looking around for both books, but both of those combined have everything the Omnibus vol.1 has (except the Worlds of War), which is a minor setback. And you still save more money buying both books over the omnibus, even with the Amazon discount.

Somehow this story slipped by me and I didn't catch it when it originally came out, but Wonderland is a killer story. It opens up with Flash captured by the Police and put in jail, but he has no memory of how he got there or why his powers are acting strange. Worst of all, he's being locked up by one of his own rogue's gallery as a cop! Even his uncle Barry Allen (the best Flash there's ever been) is against him. From there, the mystery deepens and Flash is forced to team up with two of his most hated villains to escape this nightmare world he's entered. I don't want to give away too much because part of the fun is uncovering the mystery. I'll say this much: it's one of the better collected storylines I've read this year.

The story is well-done, and the artwork is superb. I thought I knew where this was going, but the ultimate mastermind behind it all was a complete surprise to me. It's a fast-paced story told through 6 issues of the Flash comic book, and I'm glad I waited until this release to read it. I think the suspense would have been too much having to wait a month at a time between chapters! Highly recommended.

MINI REVIEW: in which the Flash discovers he is in an alternative world in which he and other elements do not exist. In order to solve the problem and regain his powers (there is no Speedforce to grant him his speed) he must work with old Flash villains. Interesting narrative structure. Artwork/panels was somewhat good to good. OVERALL GRADE: B to B plus.

This is a solid story and great interaction between Flash and Captain Cold. However, I was expecting something along the caliber of John's more recent work on JSA, Green Lantern, and Action Comics. This is not on the same par. Perhaps his Flash work evolved to come close to his current masterpieces, but not here. I think I'll just wait until Flash: Rebirth to see what else Geoff can bring to the hero.
