The Flash: Season Zero, also known as The Flash: Zero Year, is a comic book series set between episodes from the first season of The Flash. It ran from September 8, 2014 until July 27, 2015, releasing every fortnight. The first printed collection of the comics was released on October 1, 2014.[1]

The series is co-written by Brooke Eikmeier and Katherine Walczak with art by Phil Hester and Eric Gapstur. The series has a lighter, more fantastical feel than the show, including outlandish and "costume-y" characters.[1]

Follow the adventures of Barry Allen as he struggles to balance his job as a police crime scene investigator, his unrequited crush on Iris West (who also happens to be his boss' daughter) and his new life as Central City's guardian angel!
