The Flash is an ongoing American comic book series featuring the DC Comics superhero of the same name. Over the years, the series has primarily focused on two characters who have worn the mantle of The Flash: Barry Allen, the second Flash, who was the original focus from 1959 to 1985, and 2010 to 2020. And Wally West , the third Flash, from 1987 to 2006, 2007 to 2008, and from 2021 to present. The series began at issue #105, picking up its issue numbering from the anthology series Flash Comics which had featured original Flash Jay Garrick.
Although the Flash is a mainstay in the DC Comics stable, the series has been canceled and restarted several times. The first volume, starring Barry Allen, was canceled at issue #350 prior to the character's death in Crisis on Infinite Earths. A new series began in June 1987 with a new issue #1, starring Wally West as the new Flash. The second volume was briefly canceled in 2006 at issue #230 in the wake of the Infinite Crisis event in which Wally disappeared, and was replaced by a new series titled The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive starring Bart Allen as the fourth Flash. The following year, The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive was canceled and The Flash resumed publication from issue #231 with Wally as the Flash once again; however, this volume was ultimately canceled permanently in 2008 at issue #247.
Following Barry's resurrection in Final Crisis and return to being the primary Flash in The Flash: Rebirth, a third volume starring Barry debuted in 2010. However, this volume was ultimately cancelled in the lead-up to the miniseries Flashpoint, which in turn led into The New 52 continuity reboot. A fourth volume was later launched in 2011 as part of the new continuity, with Barry Allen as the sole Flash; this volume ultimately concluded in 2016. A fifth volume was launched soon after as part of the DC Rebirth line-wide relaunch. In 2020 the series reverted to original numbering by adding together all issues of The Flash from each volume, as of issue #750. The series is a part of the Infinite Frontier line-wide relaunch, beginning with issue #768.
