The contemporary look of the Scarlet Speedster is captured in full-forward momentum on this figurine releases. The Flash’s current look has survived well into the now-relevant Rebirth arc that is still unraveling within the pages of DC Comics; the accompanying magazine details The Flash’s most defining moments from his long and fabled history, including the character’s impressive legacy from his Golden Age debut in 1940 as Jay Garrick, to his protege Wally West taking up the mantle following the events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths.
The magazine also includes a detailed (if not entirely) accurate timeline that follows the hero’s more than 75 year chronology, also highlighting the 10 most “iconic” covers of The Flash through the ages. The DC All-Stars collection also chronicles a “Year by Year” in the history of DC Comics. The subscriber price is easily well worth it. Each delivery features two collectible figures, each with a magazine focused on the hero or villain.
