    If it weren’t for the The Flash, I’d give it a lower rating. I loved how they ‘explained’ how the Flash could stop bullets. “When two bodies travel along together at equal speed even tho they meet, there is absolutely no friction -and therefore no injury!!!” I mean, that’s neat. I also quiet enjoyed The Hawkman. However, I found the other stories quite boring. Now, The Demon Dummy I just did not like.

    The first story of the original Flash, Jay Garrick! This was a really interesting and great first story! Really enjoyed reading this character as a young man and would love to read more of his stories! The origins of the Hawkman and Hawkgirl! I loved how well this story was told and you saw their first lives, somewhat briefly but still, it was pretty cool! What I didn't like was that Carter Hall suddenly had a Hawkman costume. Like, why would he have made one before realising his past? However, a The first story of the original Flash, Jay Garrick! This was a really interesting and great first story!

Overall, an alright first story that I did enjoy reading!

    “The Whip” is worth the price of admission all by itself: it’s a story about the return (by reincarnation, perhaps) of a Mexican Robin Hood born to the aristocracy, but bonded to the peasantry, who fights (in two different centuries) for the rights of penniless Latino agricultural workers against corrupt landowners and lawmen who use an unjust legal system and mob violence to keep the poor in their place. Great Depression-era social issues aren’t beneath the surface of the tale: they’re right at “The Whip” is worth the price of admission all by itself: it’s a story about the return (by reincarnation, perhaps) of a Mexican Robin Hood born to the aristocracy, but bonded to the peasantry, who fights (in two different centuries) for the rights of penniless Latino agricultural workers against corrupt landowners and lawmen who use an unjust legal system and mob violence to keep the poor in their place. Great Depression-era social issues aren’t beneath the surface of the tale: they’re right at center stage. Sure, maybe The Whip was a Zorro rip-off, but who cares? His could make his horse back-kick the front door of a county jail into splinters in front of a lynch mob of screaming racists. By the way, “The Hawkman” is one of the best comic book first appearances you’ll ever read. It’s a psychedelic mix of Abraham Merritt’s “The Ship of Ishtar”, Universal’s “The Mummy”, and Flash Gordon, with some Weird Tales vapors wafted in for good measure (e.g., Dr. “Hastor”). Prime escapism for a lazy Saturday afternoon.

    This was a a fantastic read, all four stories that I read were great. Jay Garrick as the first Flash is a fun read, the first Hawkman story is pretty tripy and what you would expect of later superhero stories. I also read Johnny Thunder and The Whip both very fun and unique especially when your used to reading Action Comics and Detective Comics.

    I put off reading this because I was worried I'd ruin my Batman streak. I was very wrong i just love reading the Flash comics. This is a part of my childhood that I missed.

    La verdad es muy bueno para la época en que fue publicado, debo admitir que es un clásico de los cómics pero como es uno de los primeros y su historia no es muy intrigante pienso que no fue tan entretenido que digamos. Sin embargo si me gustó ver cómo empezó todo.

    This was so good and so simplified. It's so nice to compare it the the more recent ones. I recommend it to all Flash fans who want to know when and how was the Flash truly created.
