@blindinglights: Kingdom Come, Impulse and The Flash are my favorites by Waid. I really enjoyed The Return of Barry Allen. I got the sense that he knew both Wally West and Bart Allen. I wonder if the amazing job he did with Wally is the reason he was "rested". Waid was one of the writers that gave Wally so much spotlight and a really complete story. @mimisalome - I'm a big fan of Classic Archie. I think on my bucket list is to go back and build a Classic Archie collection, or at least see what trade collections are available from the '70's and '80's.@aimless - I'm thinking what Waid is doing with Archie is what Bendis did with Peter Parker. This might be more of an Ultimate Archie. Trying to make the character more appealing to a newer, younger audience.
