Also, JLA: Year One, Flash & GL: Brave And The Bold, and DC: New Frontier Absolute Edition (I say the Absolute Edition because it features some great scenes with Barry that aren't in the standard release), are all great Flash reads. Definitely check them out if you get a chance.
I am a huge fan of the Brian Buccellato and Francis Manapul run of The Flash. The New 52 definetly brought some status quo changes, but they gave us some good Flash stories
I hear good things and am currently reading New 52 Volume 1, Move Forward. It's a cool read. Lots of science involved, and as a new Flash reader, it's a cool aspect to the character.
I've only read ten or twelve issues but the New 52 Flash stuff is fantastic. I loved Barry in the New Frontier as well.
COIE of course... Rebirth is good too
I also jla year one Barry Interaction with Dinah..
they should definitely take elements from JLA year one and put that into Flash and Arrow
Too bad Andrew Kreisberg screwed up Dinah beyond repair..
just wait. By the end of this season, we're all going to love Laurel, and she'll be much more in line with the BC of the comics
I have too wait and see. He also writing green arrow again I hope he doesn't screwed like last time..
still haven't seen the pilot, do they explain the ear pieces? That scene wouldn't really work if they explain the ear pieces
I think is some sort of radio ..they never explain how the coult works..

THE FLASH: A CELEBRATION OF 75 YEARS collects a wide range of stories featuring the Scarlet Speedster from his seven decades as a mainstay in the DC Comics universe. From the original Flash, Jay Garrick, to his successors Barry Allen and Wally West, the mantle of this beloved hero has made him burst beyond the printed page into a pop culture symbol. This anthology collects stories by legendary writers including Gardner Fox, John Broome and Geoff Johns.
How come Barry has the least recommendations? And least interaction with his grandson?
Flash v1 241-350 contains some of my favorite Flash stories
Barry didn't get to interact with Bart a whole lot due to the fact that he was dead when Bart showed up initially. It was Wally and Max Mercury who had the biggest influence on Bart's development of his heroic persona.
They crossed paths briefly in Infinite Crisis when Bart and Wally ran Superboy Prime into the Speed Force. Barry and Max Mercury showed up to help restrain SB Prime, but Bart was too caught up with seeing Max again to pay attention to his grandfather.
Later on when Barry came back to life in Final Crisis, Bart was dead (or only recently resurrected, I don't remember which). That left the short period of time between 2009 and 2011 for the two to be alive simultaneously.
However, you're right about the lack of Barry stories. He had a bunch of really great reads spanning his whole career.
My personal favorites are the one where he met Jay Garrick for the first time/discovered the multiverse, his time traveling one where he encountered Professor Zoom for the first time, his trial, his return in Flash Rebirth, JLA Year One, Blackest Night, and Flashpoint. His New 52 stuff in both Justice League and his solo series have some great stuff as well.
