DC Comics plans to release The Flash: The Fastest Man Alive Box Set just ahead of the June 23, 2023, premiere of the new movie The Flash (see “Warner Bros. Changes Dates for Five DC Movies”).

The box set collects three paperback collections of comics that either influenced or are influenced by the movie. The Flash: Fastest Man Alive, by writer Kenny Porter and artists Ricardo López Ortiz, Juan Ferreyra, and Jason Howard, leads up to the film with a story about The Flash teaming up with Batman to fight a series of villains in Central City; the trade paperback will be available on its own in May, just ahead of the box set. Flashpoint, by writer Geoff Johns and artist Andy Kubert, is the 2011 crossover that set the stage for the New 52 (see “‘Flashpoint’ DC’s Major 2011 Event”). Batman: The 1989 Movie Adaptation, by Dennis O’Neil and Jerry Ordway, is just what the title says, a comics adaptation of the Tim Burton film.

All in all, the box set includes 448 pages of comics and will be released on June 20, 2023, just before the movie opens, with an MSRP of $50.00.
