I recently enjoyed a great graphic novel about the Flash. If you haven't watched the TV show on the CW
Network, you should. He's a superhero who can run at super-speed. I'll spare the origin, etc. but he's a great character.
   Recently our friends Stacey and Nathan surprised me with the trade paperback called "The Flash: Volume 5: History Lesson" that compiles the Flash monthly comic book issues #26-29 and FLASH ANNUAL #2,
   As someone on Amazon put it: Three of the issues in this paperback are a great mix of noir detective and paranormal as a ghost from the diamond mining 1800s returns, crosses paths with a modern day serial killer. 
 Flash gets help from a ghostly superhero named Deadman in this three part story.  I think it's one of the BEST Flash storylines I've ever read, likely because it involves the paranormal! :
Also in the book- 2 standalone stories including the first meeting of The Flash and Green Lantern!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
