Episode 3: The Flash (1990s)

Welcome to Journey Into Misery, where I explain complicated comics characters, continuity and concepts to the patient and perpetually perplexed Helena Hart.

This week we’re talking about Wally West, Bart Allen and all the great work Mark Waid did in the 1990s.

  1. Man, Mark Waid’s run sounds so crazy! I’ve only ever had the chance to read the Return of Barry Allen, but I hope to get a chance to sit down with the rest sometime in the future.
