Some may come to this book and feel that the plots and dialogue comes across cheesy in a way. The true goal of this book is to refresh readers on the comic book history & nostalgia of the silver age of comics. The Flash & Green Lantern played an integral part in the Julius Schwartz era of DC comics that saw the modernization of the Flash and Green Lantern mythos. The Silver age of comics is what most of the comic book industry is built off of today. Schwartz impact on the industry not only included these characters but the creation of the Justice League, revitalization of Hawkman, the Atom and many other scifi inspired superheroes. Stories like this one inspired the folks at Marvel to create there scifi takes on the superhero gene as well. This book feels like a great companion to Darwyn Cooke's New Frontier, which can be read in its entirety in Absolute DC: The New Frontier. I enjoyed this bromance superhero collection. I enjoyed many of the tales in this collection. The one that featured the Alan Scott (Green Lantern) & Jay Garrick (Flash) was cool. I also loved the tale in which Barry & Hal faced Sinestro. The final tale of the book was filled with the most emotion as it appears to take place before Infinite Crisis. Both Hal & Barry would go on to save the Earth from incredible calamities and sacrifice themselves in the process. Some of the dialogue is a bit dated today but these stories are still fun nonetheless.

    Ah, the bromance of Hal Jordan and Barry Allen. Whether it's battling an alien race bent on hoarding humanity's evil, feeling jealous over the affections of Kid Flash, dealing with the macho head-games of the predecessor Flash and Green Lantern on a camping trip, fighting fascist cops with radical leftist Green Arrow, being ensnared by a sun that feeds off fearlessness, or dancing deadly with an ex-girlfriend supervillainess controlled from the 7th dimension, this "brave and bold" duo see each o Ah, the bromance of Hal Jordan and Barry Allen.

It's no coincidence that all these stories deal with creatures and cohorts that twist and control emotions, and that solving the story's problem in the designated 22 or so pages requires GL or Flash controlling or harnessing their emotions, or letting them break out with a good and trusted pal. That's what I call teamwork! Now stop giving each other piggy-back rides and slapping towels at each other's asses and go out there and fight some evil!

    3.75 stars This was a lot of fun! I always forget how much I enjoy old school 1980s-1990s comic artwork. And I really loved the cameos in this. Wally West (Kid Flash/Kid Lantern), Jay Garrick (the original Flash), Alan Scott (the original Green Lantern), and my personal favorite, Green Arrow! The issues with Green Arrow took place during Hal and Ollie's cross-country trip, and they were pretty fun. It was interesting to see the conflicting ideologies of Barry and Ollie.

The issues with Jay and Alan were my favorite. They went on a camping trip to another planet and played a lot of superhero jokes on each other, which is always good fun. This was largely lighthearted, but the final issues were kind of depressing because (view spoiler)[ you see Barry having to deal with the death of his wife Iris as Hal tries to be there for him. It's pretty sad. (hide spoiler)] Overall, great artwork. Entertaining dialogue. Lighthearted plot. I would recommend this to serious comic fans.

    3.5. Like a previous miniseries, World's Finest, that traced Superman and Batman's relationship over time, this looks at Barry and Hal, first in their early Silver Age days, then on through the period after Iris Allen was murdered. It's fun, but Hal tends to be one-note, a smug cocky jerk, which is a common interpretation but not true to this period. So not as satisfying as it could have been for me. 3.5.

    Hal’s friendship with Ollie always resonated more with me, but there’s no denying his bromance with Barry. These two perpetually unhip do-gooders have been through a lot together. Modern readers like me probably haven’t come across many of their team-ups, as most of them happened during the 60’s and 70’s. Plus, Barry and Hal were dead for much of the Modern Age. But reading enough DC comics will clue you in to the bond they share.

And it’s a bond that Waid, Peyer, and Kitson clearly adore, because this is a fun, endearing, lovingly crafted comic. I like how each issue essentially stands on its own. This series looks at Barry and Hal across time, with relevant cameos popping in. Waid and Peyer situate the stories firmly in pre-Crisis continuity and reference events surrounding the time period (see Waid’s spectacularly nerdy introduction for when each issue takes place). Issue four, an homage of sorts to the Green Arrow/Green Lantern “Hard Travelin’ Heroes” stories, was my favorite of the bunch. The individual plots are okay, but come on, they’re secondary to the interactions between the two leads. I like later Flash and Green Lanterns better, but I’m happy to say that Waid and Peyer made me appreciate Hal and Barry more. Like much of Waid’s DC work, this book has a throwback Silver Age sensibility. It still manages to feel modern, though, something Waid is so good at. I also learned a few things from reading this book. For instance, after his test pilot career, Hal was an insurance investigator, toy salesman, and truck driver. He also blew threw girlfriends faster than Barry could run. In fact, this book made clear to me a distinction that I think gives great insight into their characters. Barry lived a stable life, with a steady career and loving wife, while Hal moved around a lot, never satisfied with where he was. Seen in this light, their friendship is one of opposites attracting (issue three drives this point home). This book is a nice companion to Waid and Kitson’s fantastic JLA: Year One. Both are great standalone stories that celebrate DC history and it characters. I highly recommend both to any DC reader.

    I am pretty much convinced that Waid did this title since he enjoyed making JLA Year One, and this book succeeds in the same areas. The book is a series of isolated events in the friendship of Barry and Hal (both the 2nd Flash and Green Lanterns respectively, both deceased at the time this book was originally published), from the very start to the nearly bloody end of their careers.

This is really fun for the most part, with Waid really nailing the unique dynamic between the straight-laced, dryly funny Flash and the reckless, adventurous Green Lantern. Waid also stays true to the insane history of Hal's employment (insurance adjuster, truck driver, toy salesman!) which never fails to get laughs. I think this is a pretty solid comic for folks who do not know these characters to check out, and I always like modern comics stories that do good done-in-one issues. I feel I am not selling this well enough, but it's great!

    I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to read a story about the friendship of Hal Jordan and Barry Allen. I especially liked the fact that its just a set of 5 individual stories that just span their careers. The ending monologue made me a bit emotional even though in New 52 Barry and Hal are alive and in fact, Flash Annual 2 just did a story on how they met which was equally enjoyable.

    An interesting hero pairing at times (relationship issues and buddy-buddy ribbing aplenty). Some of the stories are better than others but always filled with fun ink and vivid color work.

    Collecting the six-issue miniseries from 1999-2000, this volume recounts the long and complicated friendship between the Barry Allen Flash and the Hal Jordan Green Lantern. This is a friendship that on paper shouldn't really be. Barry is a nerd, nebbish and sorta a prude. Plus he's a family man, married to Iris West and surrogate father to Wally. Hal is a playboy, a loner, a rebel. He's devoted to Carol Ferris but he plays the field quite a bit. The closet he has to a family is a pair of brothers Collecting the six-issue miniseries from 1999-2000, this volume recounts the long and complicated friendship between the Barry Allen Flash and the Hal Jordan Green Lantern.

Hal is a playboy, a loner, a rebel. He's devoted to Carol Ferris but he plays the field quite a bit. The closet he has to a family is a pair of brothers that he only sees maybe for Thanksgiving and Christmas if lucky. Clearly this friendship is proof that opposites attract. This book is beautifully illustrated by A.D. 2000's Barry Kitson and Tom Grindberg. It's topped off by the epic storytelling of Mark Waid (Daredevil) and Tom Peyer (Batman '66). Just as with the history of these two characters, there's highs and lows. I thought the entire book was great. But I hated seeing how both characters were affected by loss and tragedy. Both Hal and Barry have gone through some really crappy stuff in their nearly 70 some years of existence. The best chapter has Barry and Hal going on an intergalactic camping trip with their Earth-2 predecessors Jay Garrick and Alan Scott. It's very funny seeing the generation gap between Jordan and Scott and how much Barry and Jay are like mirror images of each other. A great book that is a must for any fan of the Silver Age Flash and Green Lantern! But be sure to read with tissues nearby.

    Well this was good, dumb fun. The dialogue can be pretty awkward and over the top, due to evocation of the Silver Age and its idiosyncrasies, but there's a good amount of of heart here. I can say with relative certainty that this is the best story about either Hal or Barry's early careers. Both of them have gotten the short shrift when it comes to post-Crisis backstory comics in comparison to Batman or Superman, especially good ones. But this is the exception. Every issue is a standalone story t Well this was good, dumb fun.

Both of them have gotten the short shrift when it comes to post-Crisis backstory comics in comparison to Batman or Superman, especially good ones. But this is the exception. Every issue is a standalone story taking place sometime after "JLA: Year One" up to just before "Crisis on Infinite Earths". We get lots of fun lore for both characters, including an issue featuring their Golden Age counterparts, an issue set during the iconic "Hard Travelling Heroes" era, and a story featuring Kid Flash. This isn't a comic that will blow your mind or change your perceptions of anything, but if you like the characters or just want to get a good bit of DC backstory, you can't go wrong here.

    I adore Barry and Hal’s friendship so much. They are two very different people and it’s a miracle they even met let alone get alone but they definitely do. This six issue long mini series explores their relationship, its development and their personalities. The things they drive each other insane with and the things they can’t imagine their lives without. These 6 issues had been much fun and if you are one of the fans of the green lantern/speedster friendships you will also enjoy this piece.

    Sadly, this book just isn't for me. I don't have a nostalgic connection to early DC days. I'm sure Waid and Peyer delivered a nice tribute to creators of yore but reading now (2019) it didn't hit home for me. I enjoyed the hokieness of it but that's about it. I would have liked some footnotes as to where/when these stories were taking place so I could go back and read them but instead I'm left wondering. The art, mostly by Barry Kitson is pretty perfect. Overall, just not a fit for me. Sadly, this book just isn't for me. I don't have a nostalgic connection to early DC days.

    Una buona miniserie che mette a confronto i vari Lanterna Verde e Flash, completamente incentrata sui personaggi e la loro caratterizzazione nei rapporti interpersonali piuttosto che sulla lotta contro gli avversari. Conta come si pongono l'uno di fronte o accanto all'altro. Mi è piaciuta.

    DC Waid is a unique beast! You can see which characters Waid grew up with and knows. I recently re-read JLA Year One and I thought its time to delve in the semi-follow up that is tBatB. Which was as good as expected.

    Though the stories may not always have been the best (therefore I'm not giving it 5 stars) Hal and Barry's relationship is invaluable. I absolutely love how complementary they are to each other's personality. I am elated that this exists and I hope writers in the future produce more comics focusing (almost solely) on their relationship outside the JLA. This is something I will definitely be reading again. (I'll probably edit this later because right now it's just a jumble of feelings) Though the stories may not always have been the best (therefore I'm not giving it 5 stars) Hal and Barry's relationship is invaluable.

    Homenagem e revisitação de um claro connoisseur da dinâmica da dupla Hal Jordan/Barry Allen, que por estes lados se estranha pouco dado certo convívio com a sua ressurreição New52, mas que não deixa de se reconhecer e admirar. Suportado por uma arte também ela atenta aos formatos e aos traços das décadas revisitadas. Tão cheio de Easter Eggs que dá para fazer toda uma omelete geek.

    I read this in comics installments... And, yes, it seems a trial balloon now for the subsequent resurrection of these Silver Age versions of classic DC Comics characters. Top talent from these creators, to less-than-memorable effect.
