Carlos Williams requested a Flash comics chronology. Personally, I'm not a big fan of reading a comic about someone who runs fast. The character is much better suited for TV, and the CW is doing an incredible job with the current Flash TV show, and it's spin-off, "Legends Of Tomorrow". "Arrow" sucks, though.
During the final episode of last season, the whole speed force thing disappeared, and it seemed like the superheroes whose only powers were running fast were bound to live a boring life. How am I supposed to make a season of episodes out of this? I can't imagine they would Immediately Undo the disappearance of the speed force. Would they?
Captain Cold does his best Ray Charles impression. It's not very good.

Serial 4: Final Crisis Salvation Run
written by Bill Willingham and Matthew Sturges, art by Sean Chen and Walden Wong
Final Crisis is an unreadable, continuity intensive mess that no decent editor would have allowed to be published. But there were some fun spin-off series, including this one. THe President has decided that the supervillain population is way out of hand, and so Amanda Waller and The Suicide Squad round up the worst villains, including the rogues who overstepped their bounds in Full Throttle, and ship them to their own planet, which is supposed to be peaceful buttttttt, as it turns out, it's designed to kill intruders. Whoops.

Serial 6: Flash Rebirth
written by Geoff Johns, art by Ethan Van Sciver
Reading the aforementioned clusterflush, Final Crisis, did not adequately explain why Barry Allen is suddenly back in the DC Universe. Luckily, Geoff Johns wrote this whole miniseries explaining how all the flashes will fit into the world.

Episode 15: Blackest Night Black Lantern Corps Vol 02
written by many, art by many
Blackest Night is mainly a Green Lantern event, but as part of the storyline, all the dead heroes and villians are revived. To celebrate it, they released some "resurrected" issues, where a creative team of a canceled book reunited to tell a story about how their book was effected by Blackest Night. This volume contains a bunch of stories from the DC Universe, including Geoff Johns and Scott Kolins telling a Barry Allen/Wally West story. Hmmm...Barry Allen, you say?
Season 3 is 15 episodes with no real protagonist.
