Indexer Notes

New re-telling of Barry's origin. New details include that Barry's mother was a collector of Golden Age Flash comics, and Barry used to read them with her. We also see Barry develop a relationship with Detective August Heart, as established in issue #1 of this series.

Letterer credit from collected edition. The issue credits here do not list a letterer, but the letterer credit was added to the story credits in the collected edition.
