so whats the reading order of mark waid complete flash/impulse run in collected edition also what is the chance of his run turn into a omnibus?
Alright, so I’m not too sure we’re likely to see an Omnibus of his run as there’s kind of bad blood between DC and Waid at the moment, and this can sometimes affect publications. We’ve seen it before from the fact that DC stopped publishing the TPB Omnibus collections of James Robinson’s Starman series after he left them and stopped writing Earth 2 abruptly. That said, it’s not impossible to hope for this, just not likely.
So here are the collections that exist, according to wikipedia:
- Born to Run #62-65, Speed Force #1 and 80-Page Giant #1
- The Return of Barry Allen #74-79
- Reckless Youth #92-94 and Impulse #1-6
- Terminal Velocity #0 and #95-100
- Dead Heat #108-111 and Impulse #10-11
- Race Against Time #112-118
- The Wild Wests #231-236
- Impulse: Runs in the Family #1-13
So that last volume was actually published last year, which means it’s not COMPLETELY out of this world to think DC might go back and try to collect his run. They have a lot of incentive now since the Flash TV series is starting up and they’re sure you start pushing out a lot of Flash books to capitalize on the success/drive interest towards the show.
As far as I can see his run on Flash lasted from issue #62-162, and then he returned for that Wild Wests arc from 231-236. There were also TONS of one-shots and Annuals as well. Too many for me to feel like listing at the moment so it’ll have to be saved for later if/when I do a Wish List about Flash by Waid Omnibi.
And as for his Impulse run he looks to have written that one through issue #27 as well as a few appearances of the character in other single issues and whatnot. Another TPB could finish off that run.
