THE FLASH OMNIBUS BY GEOFF JOHNS VOL.2 includes:
DC First: Flash/Superman One-shot issue
The Flash Vol. 2: Rogues(issues #177-182)
The Flash Vol. 3: Crossfire(issues #183-191)
The Flash Vol. 4: Blitz(issues #192-200)
[If you want further detail of each the contents, please click on the links above for them. I won't go into as much depth since this is a pretty hefty book.]
"DC First: Flash/Superman" tells of Flash Rouge Abra Kadabra using his 64th century "magic" on Wally West to forces a race with Superman and Golden Age Flash Gay Garrick. Another fun Superman versus the Flash story. This issue takes place before "Crossfire" and The Flash issue #184.
"Rouges" is predominantly about each issue focusing on Wally facing a rouge member and his or her's action or consequences, including Plunder, Gorilla Grodd, Peek-a-Boo, Fallout, and Captain Cold. Johns continues to build each rouges characters self identity, reputation, and motivation as threats to the Flash, but even more so for older Flash characters (like the phenomenal Captain Cold story and Gorilla Grodd story). Issue 179 is tie-in with the "Joker Last Laugh" story line at the time period. So don't be surprised too much about this issue regarding it.
"Crossfire" delves deeper with more Rouge profiles Piep Piper and the new Trickster, while the "New" Rouges group that makes it's move against the Flash by taking over Central City, while another rouges villain takes over it's sister city Keystone City. And Flash has to fight both at the same time and save everyone. Everything Johns has built up with from Vol.1 and "Rouges" comes to ahead in this epic 6-part event where Wally gets pushed to the brink physically and mentally, with no assistance at all. And we get to see the reinvented rouges character The Thinker fit pretty well into the modern world of technology.
"Blitz" see's Gorilla Grodd makes his return in a powerful way by going after Wally's friend and Rouge profiler Hunter Zolomon, which Wally wants revenge. Then the main storyline of the creation and fight of Zoom and the Flash. This is a great read. The creation of Zoom is another great comic book tragic-fall character, something akin to Batman's Two-Face. It's just a bummer the spoiler for Zoom happens because his picture is on the front of the book (Amazon doesn't post the real cover of the book that's why.) And we get a nod that Johns was actually going to bring Hal Jordan back (that's over a year later he'd do the same thing in Green Lantern: Rebirth).
Overall, this is an incredible collection. Johns ideal themes are the focus of the Rouges and the creation of Zoom, Wally's greatest opponent. The Rouges have always been somewhat joke characters in most peoples eyes since their creation, with weird names, weird outfits, and mediocre abilities. Johns goes out of his way to show readers otherwise, especially for older characters. Captain Cold, Pied Piper, Gorilla Grodd, and even the new and old Trickster all get a lot of solo time to show readers these guys outfits, abilities, and ideologies are quite complex...and they too can be serious opponents, and Johns does a wonderful job accomplishing this. Captain Cold is a personal pick that I feel Johns has nailed down to a perfect-T. The other main theme is Zoom, which depicts the great downfall of Wally's personal colleague becoming Wally's greatest (and possibly most powerful) Rouge. Seeing Wally's friend helping him since Vol.1 through all the problems is a shame, and it makes the downfall over so more powerful.
Scott Kolins draws a good majority of the book and it's incredible. His sketchy art does wonders for the Rouges exaggerated expressions, and shows their bloodthirsty look they give Wally that goes perfect with Johns ideals of making the Rouges a threatening bunch, and the man accomplishes extremely well. Not to mention all the splash pages shots that show all the glorious detail, either it be the Flash fighting Grodd through a prison or another shot showing a wrecked city. It's all good.
Now for the comparison's with Vol.1. This book shares many of the same problems Vol.1 has, including lack of table of contents, no issue numbers on the covers, no extras, and...yes, it's still glued binding (glued/sewn binding.) I'm not at all anal about these things in DC's big book collections (I feel my copy is still quite study with the glued binding), but I understand if they don't make you happy about buying them, but let's look at the positives here. Vol.2 has an additional 200 plus pages over Vol.1, and I feel like it makes a world of a difference. I feel Vol.1 should have been about $49.99 or so for the amounts of contents it gave, but it doesn't. Vol.2 qualifies better for the price and content much better. The other big thing is cost of the content itself. Vol.1 was made of Flash, Book 1: Blood Will Run,The Flash: Wonderland, Iron Heights One-shot and "Our Worlds at War" Flash issue. The thing is, Blood Will Run (with the Iron Heights issue) made up half of Vol.1, and you can buy it off of Amazon and most places for an affordable price alone. Even adding Wonderland with Blood Will Run (which make up majority of Vol.1) is still more affordable then buying Vol.1. The thing with Vol.2 though, is that "Rouges", "Crossfire, and "Blitz" are out-of-print and individually about $20-$50 in most outlets. This makes buying all three volumes together about the same price for Vol.2 at retail level (or more). And buying on Amazon is even better, so I think even if you're against DC's marketing decisions of Omni, this to me is a pretty good incentive to buy regardless. But again, that's your decision.
THE FLASH OMNIBUS BY GEOFF JOHNS VOL.2 is a great edition to any Geoff Johns or Flash fans collections. Sure it suffers some of the same problems that other DC Omnibi-collections have, but considering the comparisons to Johns Flash Vol.1, I think this is superior for it's worth. But because of packaging, the score of my review is 4 ½ stars instead of the 5. And seeing as this is the halfway point in Johns Wally West collection, expect Johns entire run built up, come to an explosive conclusion in The Flash Omnibus by Geoff Johns Vol. 3.
Let's get the negative out of the way first. The binding, yes I know it's getting old, but it isn't the best. Mine actually had glue seaping out from behind the ribbon strip. Because of the glue/sewn binding, there was gutter loss somewhat throughout the book. There was one instance where I had trouble reading the content because of this. Also there was once again no extras or table of contents, which really doesn't bother me too much, but I know it does for others.
Now the good stuff. The story is excellent. I wish I could go into it more, but I don't want to ruin it for anyone. Just read this book, its worth the money. Also, the art is fantastic once again. Kollins really has a unique style that once again fits the Flash, and more importantly, the story Geoff Johns wrote.
Though there is a $75 price tag, Amazon is selling it way below the price. Because of this, you have no excuse to not get it. You will be happy you did.
This issues in held in this collection ring very true to the Flash, they are fast, manic, and good natured despite all the calamity that is unleashed upon Wally's life. Wally is just an all around righteous dude and I found this very refreshing in todays world of troubled and brooding heroes. The issues go by really fast (in a good way) and before you know it you'll have devoured half this doorstopper. Scott Kollins absolutely kills it in the art department offering the perfect cartoony shine that effectively balances the sometimes dark turns that the story takes. This omnibus comes highly recommended and for the discount price amazon is offering it at it's a great opportunity to experience Geoff's fantastic run on the scarlet speedster. I really love this book and this is the perfect gift for anyone wanting to get into the Flash. Wally will forever be my Flash.
