    Regardless, I'm.pleased they maintained the GL issues, and they included all the material needed.
    Return of Barry Allen is probably the best Flash story ever. The only real competition is Geoff Johns' Blitz. (And for me, Flash: Rebirth, but I'm certainly in the extreme minority on that')

    Yeah, as scummy as Jones apparently is, I still want to have the story in complete form. Both Waid and us readers deserve that much.

    I agree. I was particularly pleased that the release went forward with the GL crossover issues.

    Now we just need to get those JLI omnibi released. I'm hoping that since Jones was not the primary writer on those (he scripted JLE issues #14-35 over Giffen's plots and wrote #36) the volumes will come out with all the related issues.

    Having access to Johns' run, I read Blitz first, and found many similarities between the two. I'm sure Johns took inspiration from Waid.

    The way the runs are built plays off of each other: Waid built up Wally and the supporting cast, and Johns revamped the villains, and told new stories using their combined set up.

    And then DC took a giant steaming pile on all of that.

    Its strange, because I again, I read thongs backwards. Per say. I read Flash Rebirth before anything, and enjoyed it, but was still confused. Looking back on it now with all my knew Flash knowledge, I appreciate it so much more

    What's the difference between Deluxe, Omnibus, and Absolute?

    On a very simple level the only difference between deluxe and omnibus is page count. The page size and quality should be pretty much the same but an omnibus will be the equivalent of several deluxe stapled together.

    An Absolute has a much bigger page size than a deluxe edition and comes with a slipcase and is generally considered the best possible version of the book, see soemthing like this video for a comparison between the COIE deluxe and Absolute, but remember that the Absolute came out many years before the deluxe.

    Same here, I would have not bought this trade if the GL issues were skipped, its also nice to get GL 40 included as it was missing in the previous "Secret of Barry Allen" TPB

    I have to say Annual 5 (Eclipso Tie in) included in Vol 1 was awful, the story made no sense what so ever and it was the only bad issue in the entire TPB!
