Fox and artist Harry Lampert, the Flash was the first of the super-speedsters, transferring to paper the eternal fantasy of being the fastest kid on the block - and, in so doing, started one of the most enduring super-hero dynasties of them all. Quickly becoming one of the hottest heroes in the All-American Comics line... Reprinted here, most ofr the first time ever, are the Flash stories taken from Flash Comics #1-17 - the start of a fantastic legacy that spanned the Golden Age, was reborn in the Silver Age, and is still running today!"--Cover p.[2].
