The Flash: What would you recommend?

Ok so basically I like The Flash as a character, specifically Barry Allen.
 
I was just wondering if anyone could recommend some good graphic novels with him in them? 
I've read JLA:Year One and really enjoyed it so the graphic novels don't have to be solely about The Flash.
 
Sorry to be so picky but would be very grateful of any suggestions.
 
Also if there are any other DC Characters that you can recommend I would be very appreciative.
 
 Thanks in advance.

@Gambit1024:  Any chance of a link? I live in England but can see if I can get a copy sent overseas? Thanks.

Rebirth then the new series with Barry Allen in it. Also there's the next major DC event called Flashpoint which has Barry Allen as the main attraction. It should in theory do to Barry Allen what Blackest Night did to Hal Jordan

Mark Waid's run of the Flash is pretty good, but It's Wally instead of Barry.


People with suggest Rebirth, but if you're new to the character don't read it. There will be a lot of things someone new to Flash won't understand at all.

OK, first thing you'll want to do is go out and buy Flash: Rebirth. Then, light that on fire and throw it away.
Now, go back into your comic shop, slap yourself in the face for liking Barry more than Wally, and pick up Mark Waid's Wally run.

All done :D
